I have just listened to @rachshabi argue that zero tolerance for antisemitism in @UKLabour is WRONG and accusing @Keir_Starmer of 'outsourcing' policy on antisemitism to @BoardofDeputies.
Describes the @EHRC resport as 'A source of factional fighting'.1/3
I'm beyond comprehension why she cannot support engagement with community bodies after the party was found GUILTY of acting illegally towards Jews.
To describe it as 'outsourcing policy' is totally missleading.
Still Rachel does not get it.
Her inappropriate words in the podcast are just jaw dropping.
How many antisemitic members are you okay with Rachel?
You should absolutely retract that Starmer is 'outsourcing policy' to the @BoardofDeputies. That is just astonishing and wrong.
From 26 mins in.
Ps. Hats off to @MarcusRashford and @BootstrapCook who've done more to improve the lives of children in poverty in this country than the FAILED Corbynite left could ever do.

Today Kelechi Okafor was due to appear on @BBCWomansHour with the formidable @Emmabarnett.
Now for ANYONE commenting on what happened you firstly need to listen to this.
Content warning. 1/15
Listen to Kelechi Okafor by The Jewish Chronicle on #SoundCloud
This was challenged at the time, a good faith offer to engage was met with this.
Kelechi's reaction is grim.
This is not the reaction of someone who cares about racism.
Story outlined below. 2/15 thejc.com/comment/opinio…
Her response after being pulled up on a deeply antisemitic rant and genuine offer to engage was met with absolute derision.
She, in short, took to twitter to GOAD.
So it was hardly surprising Emma Barnett would have found it pretty disturbing, after she saw this. 3/15

Dialed into this absolute Crankfest. Jeez.
Part one assorted lunatics lead by Chris Williamson and Jackie Walker.
It's definitely mind blowing. There's an actual labour councillor speaking at this shower.
These people are just obsessed with Jews.
These are a selection of some of the questions being asked and ANSWERED in this horror show.
Esther giles stood as treasurer THIS YEAR.
I think she's more interested in wiping out Israel myself.
Obviously Kerry Ann is keen.
Charlotte here was a delegate to conference in 2017.
I remember seeing her speak having not long reported her antisemitism.
I see here she may want a repeat of her conference status to... err.. probably land the party in court.
No this absolute would not help Charlotte.

Tonight it's all feeling a bit much. So many friends to thank, people who had my back through thick and thin, the absolute joy of the UK Jewish community and getting to know you argumentative lovely lot. I just saw racism and had to act. 1/11
I saw racism and I fought it, like normal, or so I thought.
For me It was simple. Labour was being lead by an antisemite and that was just unacceptable. I'm not going to apologise for the fact I stood with those who saw this coming in the left. 2/11
The reason this happened wasn't an accident. For me i just couldn't believe what I saw, for older hands I learned how and why a supposed progressive anti-racist party could become a fertile ground for abhorrent racism. 3/11

Hey Owen Jones, did it not occur to you to interview, ONE, JUST ONE, of the over 85% of British Jews that think @jeremycorbyn is an antisemite?
This may have burst your smug little bubble so I guess not. 1/7
Now if I was feeling generous I would say you're too scared to admit you were cheerleader in chief to a man who had my friends in fear of their future in their own country, but I'm in an honest mood. 2/7
You know damn well why Jews believed Corbyn to be an antisemite, you know damn well why so many Jews feared him becoming PM yet you CHOSE to only interview his friends in JVL.
Part of the 8%. Talk about speaking to the few not the many. 3/7

This is a personal thread relating to antisemitism but with context. Its something I feel is important for all my twitter friends to understand. A bit of context has never been available to you. My focus had to be the fight I was in, but there is a human being here.
I have suffered very deeply from mental health problems. At the age of 28 I finally broke. I was an outpatient at the wonderful facility of the Maudsley in South London. It was my BLESSING I got sick under a Labour government. Tony Blair was PM.
I cannot stress this enough.
I had world class treatment, and with a lot of hard graft and painful process I came back to the world of the living. I did my shift but I will never not be grateful I had such good care. It literally saved my life.
This was because he WON an election.
