Written by Jim Allen, it was based on soviet antisemitic propaganda which 'took the greatest tragedy in Jewish history, the Holocaust, and transformed it into a product of Jewish treachery from which Zionists benefitted.'
'that Zionism and Hitler "needed" one another. According to one of the lead characters in the play, the Jews of Hungary "were murdered not just by the force of German arms but by calculated treachery of their own Jewish leaders".'
Dr Stephen Roth: "Perdition is a libel against all those who lived through and fought and mostly perished in the Holocaust."
"That is why I have absolutely no respect for the police." 1/7
He was actually fined £200, not £1,000 that he claims.
Perhaps he might have remembered how much it was if he had paid the fine himself, and not got the NUM to pay it on his behalf, something which they appear to have done on many occasions (see upcoming thread). 2
He evidently liked showing his lack of respect for the police during the miners' strike, being the first arrested in Northumberland & was arrested at least '6 or 7 times' [too many to count?], usually for assaults on the police. 3
Corbyn: The absurd spatchcock of a history that NATO has been treating us to over the last few weeks needs to be challenged... In 1948 NATO was founded in order to promote a cold war with the Soviet Union.
According to Corbyn NATO was created to promote the cold war! 2/6
NATO did intervene in the Balkans and to stop the genocide and ethnic cleansing in Kosovo. 3
Corbyn: "Together with Ken Livingstone & others we built up regular contact with Sinn Fein [IRA's political wing], we were condemned by our own party leadership for so doing, condemned by many people for so doing."
Let's take a look at a few of the condemnations. 1/12
The first Labour leader to condemn Corbyn & Livingstone (& John McDonnell) was Michael Foot back in 1982 when they invited Adams, McGuiness & Morrison to meet them in London in the middle of an IRA terror campaign in 1982. 2
In 1984 Corbyn was again condemned after inviting 2 convicted IRA terrorist to Parliament, just days after they murdered 5 people at Brighton.
Neil Kinnock accused Corbyn of acting "stupidly"
The chief whip said he was "indifferent to the outrage, the suffering and the killing"
The problem is his template is Venezuela, and we know how well that's working out.
'an inspiration to the rest of the world and the voice of an alternative to the US & British neoliberal agenda'
[Morning Star 5 Dec 2005] 1/13
Corbyn (and co-conspirator John McDonnell) have signed countless Early Day Motions like these congratulating Hugo Chavez, the Bolivarian revolution and all the achievement of Venezuela (but never anything negative). 2/13
In May 2006 Hugo paid an unofficial visit to London.
Corbyn: 'His contribution to the elimination of poverty is a huge step forward [make everyone poor] is a huge step forward... There are lessons here that we can all learn.' 3/13
Most people don't know that Corbyn actually opposes/ed the WTO & its predecessor GATT treaties.
Well, have you seen the state of the Burkina Faso film industry? 1/10
'a huge proportion of power has been handed over to the WTO in the name of promoting the idea of a free market economy all round the world, with all the devastation that will cause for jobs in this country & for living standards in the poorest parts of the world'. 2/11
'There seems to be an understanding that GATT is something that we should all welcome & that anyone who opposes it is somehow a heretic or an anti-Christ & therefore should be allowed to enter the debate.' 3/11
Many remain voters might be tempted by Corbyn's claims that he will be neutral on EU/Referendum. Don't be fooled, this is what he really thinks:
'The EU project has nothing to do with workers rights, protecting the environment or raising living standards," Mr Corbyn argues.' 1/9
'It has been and will be about cutting back on wages, social services and workers' rights in order to suit big business.' 2/9
'Ultimately, for Mr Corbyn, the European Union represents a threat to democracy. The European Commission can lay down legislation with the agreement of the Council of Ministers, which then overrides national parliaments.' 3/9
