I see Rachel Riley is doing her best to get fired 09:23 - Nov 21 with 12600 viewsWarkTheWarkITFC

What a quite amazing, ridiculous thing to do. Even more so when you consider this is clearly a very, very intelligent person.

Regardless of her real feelings, she's managed to convince most of social media to label her a white supremacist.

Really not a good look. If she's able to end up in a position like this, what hope for the 99% of the country who don't have as much ability to process facts!

She's thoroughly embarrassed herself here and it's frankly shameful.



I've now dropped her off my list.

She's been described by many as a consonant, vowel, consonant, consonant.

Whatever that means.

No such thing as bad publicity if you are an attractive blonde looking self-publicity.

Besides its very trendy to think Corbyn is right up there with Hitler on the question of what to do with those Jews.

I'll give her the benefit of the doubt that she's been caught up in the madness.

Ditto David Baddiel on Corbyn's "antisemitic" pronunciation of Epstein which is entering fruitcake territory.

And the prominent rabbi who accused Corbyn of antisemitically giving A Christmas Carol to Johnson when Dickens is also the author of Oliver which portrays Fagin as an evil Jewish "paedophile" ...

That's not far from hysteria.

On the other hand, it's good to see people like Monbiot getting involved and trying to point out the evidence (or rather lack of it) for the antisemitic label against Corbyn and Labour as a whole. Call me an extremist, but I think dealing in truth and reality would seem to be the best way forward, including for the Jewish community that's caught in the middle of all this.

Labour needs to get to grips over the whole antisemitic situation in the party but I totally agree with you on Baddiel"s accusation.

If pronouncing a name in a slightly different way is racists then with my Suffolk accent I've probably pronounced the names of many people from the subcontinent in a racist way.

The correct way to pronounce Epstein is of course "child rapist".

Agreed. There's also Brian Epstein (Epstine) who is probably a lot more familiar to him than Jeffrey. Not to mention any other Epsteins, Einsteins and Weinsteins he knows of or has met.

But re: the situation, the question is whether Labour have been allowed to get to grips with the "whole antisemitic situation". None of the steps taken or statements made have been deemed good enough by the chorus of accusers - and unfortunately as it's been so politicized from the start, I'm really not sure it's ever been about that.

I'm no fan of whataboutery so I don't think it matters if other parties are bad on antisemitism or islamophobia (or Labour had problems preCorbyn) but it still surprises me there's not been anything like this outcry over the years from those leading the attack in the media and on social media.

At the risk of being jumped on, how comes this t-shirt makes Riley a racist? I can see it's deeply unfair and offsensive, but why the white supremicist attack?

Corbyn was actually a member of CLAAG a front for a violence prone Trotskyist group known as the Revolutionary Communist Group (RCG). The mainstream anti apathied movement disowned him and his group and the ANC asked them not to carry out the demonstration he was arrested at as it would be counter productive.

It's not if, as I'm sure this is, a totally stupid faux pas.

But to literally hijack one cause to highlight another is probably not the brightest move.

In fairness ABB has been on a journey. I bet he no longer blames "pissed up scousers" for Hillsborough these days either.

I missed that one if I'm honest.

Not that I have a list - I'm not that confident.

I think it's fair to say his post, if anything, was probably closer to tongue-in-cheek self-deprecation.
