What an awful story, so very much suffering . And I believe even ordinary toilets are now harder to find in UK ?

It all comes back to £££'s and political will . There were no comments on yesterday's Gdn on Amazon's virtually Taxfree status by Richard Murphy --

/amazons-tax-is-not-transparent-but-politicians-let-them-get-away-with-it/

http://www.taxresearch.org.uk/Blog/2018 ... y-with-it/

It seems he is not Happy At All on labour's lack of radical economic policies ... must read later !

As I've predicted for some time Margaret Hodge, and Friends, are going for Unconditional Surrender . Tho of course they will never be really satisfied ?

R4 tells me that twelve ‘moderate’ MP’s have been meeting in a Sussex farmhouse to plan Post-Corbyn , don't know which MP's . That'd be interesting !

A reminder on Ed Miliband and Maureen Lipman from Sky’sGoneOut last night—

“I see Boris is being a dick again.

Can you imagine the outcry if Jeremy Corbyn had mocked Jewish hats and curly sideburns?

Before I went out and got ludicrously sunburned today I had the misfortune of hearing John McTernan (Blair advisor) discussing Corbyn’s alleged antisemitism on Radio 5 this morning. Not only is he borderline insane but everything he said was wrong.

The whole debacle didn’t even start with Corbyn, it started under Miliband when he had the temerity to suggest Labour would recognise a Palestinian state.Maureen Lipman went nuts and a concerted campaign was started to persuade Jews not to vote Labour. Of course with him being Jewish they couldn’t come right out and call him an antisemite, but it’s the same people running the same campaign for the same reasons.

So to claim, as McTernan did this morning, that this all started with the ‘hard left’ taking over the Labour party is demonstrably bullshit. But then he still thinks invading Iraq was a brilliant success and the sun shines out of Blair’s arse so obviously he’s someone you want on the BBC giving a reasoned, balanced opinion.”

PS registered 34° at 5pm yesterday !

Not uncommon for "accessible" to become of no practical use,especially in pubs/restaurants.

I wonder how jewish opinion outside theloudmouth influential BoD and similar does actually stack up for an against all the IHRA definitions/examples ?

jewish-support-and-solidarity-for-corbyns-position-on-israel-is-growing-globally/

https://www.thecanary.co/global/world-a ... -globally/

So Watson Starmer Cooper are all on the same hymn sheet of obeisance to IHRA , any more ? I listened to Cooper yesterday, and she really WAS reciting her lines.

Now off on my internationally recognised MF135 to load some more wood .

PS I'm not reciting Canary as an authority on this, but that doesn't alter my question.

The golden rule, frog222, is not to take any leadership "secret plots" whose details are expansively related in newspapers seriously. This applies to all parties btw :)

AK I take them very seriously as adding to the gaiety of the nation :-)

And re your other earlier comments, Hodge may want unconditional surrender - but it remains highly unlikely that she will get it.

Her response last night was widely seen as graceless and triumphalist, she could well come to "regret" that if nothing else.

Hello all from a delightfully summery Scarborough :-)

What a mess politics is. I can't help thinking that, imperfect though the place is, there is more decorum and common sense around when issues are being debated in the House.

There has been far too little time on meaningful issues in Parliament recently, leaving a vacuum readily filled by spin and the nightmare media we have to contend with.
