Labour play the politics of division in Uxbridge

It is no secret that Labour are agitating to get a General Election sooner rather than later, using BREXIT amongst other issues to drive their political agenda rather than actually having anything positive to contribute to a vital time in our country’s history.

To this end, they are selecting candidates to stand up and down the country already with the hope that by sabotaging our country’s future they can take control in Westminster and push the hard left agenda of Corbyn and McDonnell in to Downing Street.

A few weeks ago in Uxbridge, Ali Milani was selected to stand against the Conservative encumbent, Boris Johnson,(left) in what will be a hotly contested constituency if the boundary changes that are proposed become reality. Currently sitting on a majority of five and a half thousand, projections show a majority as thin as 500 if those changes come in to place, with Boris losing four solid Conservative wards , gaining two (Including the small ward of Harefield) but decisively also gaining two solid Labour wards that are in the London Borough of Ealing to create the new ‘Uxbridge & Hillingdon’ constituency.

Since his selection, Milani has had a lot to say – below is his latest piece from ‘Labour list’ with my comments in italics under his musings –

Another Labour own goal on anti Semitism

Another day, another anti Semitism storm hits the Labour party.

Last night a public meeting was held in Golders Green where Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell was in debate with Jenny Manson, Labour activist and Chairman of JVL (Jewish Voice for Labour)

All sounds fairly straight forward, doesn’t it? After all, you would like to think that political parties would engage with the electorate over their plans, especially as McDonnell would be in charge of the country’s finances should Labour win the next general election?

However, nothing is ever straightforward where Corbyn’s new, ‘improved’ Labour Party is concerned.

Golders Green has long been an area with a large Jewish Community, yet Ms Manson’s JVL group counter demonstrated against Jews calling out anti Semitism in Labour on Parliament Square earlier this year – according to them, the claims are fictitious and the work of ‘right wing’ Jews to counter the electoral threat of Jeremy Corbyn. JVL also opposed the adoption of the IHRC definition of anti Semitism in to the Labour Constitution.

 

Ms Manson is also a member of the leftist Momentum organisation within Labour – her Barnet branch were reported by The Independent in August  to have stated in leaked emails that security guards were stationed outside synagogues to “generate an atmosphere of insecurity” because “Zionists” wanted to “exploit and generate the fear of antisemitism”.
