    There was so much transphobia from people claiming to be disappointed supporters under their Father’s Day social media.

    And now Barry Sheerman has posted some antisemitic tweets.

    Starmer really has inherited a whole big bag of shit innit.

    In response to Green and Desmond both getting seats in the HoL (both Jews) he posted “Apparently there’s been a bit of a run on silver shekels”.

    FWIW both of those men are an embarrassment and then getting peerages is a disgrace.

    I'd totally missed that btw. Philip Green and Richard Desmond? Man alive. I refer you to my previous post on the new peers.

    It's amazing. How did he think that would go down...

    There’s a million reasons to oppose those two going in and that’s what he goes with?

    F’s sake

    Sorry I got confused, they didn’t get them, they were just on the original list which was what he was tweeting about.

    Even Boris isn’t that tone deaf.

    What’s particularly amazing about it is how he managed to combine two separate canards into one - Jews killing Jesus and Israel secretly controlling the world. Quite impressive.

    It's so depressing. I see McCluskey is now banging on about the settlements.

    What I find quite weird is that I am not even sure what silver shekels refers to and I would extend this to be one either knows what this trope is and how it is obviously antisemitic or you don't know what it is about, like me, and so it is pointless to post on twitter apart from if the intention is to be antisemitic.

    I find this happens a lot with antisemitism conversations as I am often confused by what anyone is on about because I am not versed in a lot of the subtler antisemitism tropes.

    Now schmeckels I understand. Maybe it was a failed Rick and Morty joke. Although I just looked that one up and it is also a Yiddish word for small penis so the plot thickens.

    Twitter detectives have narrowed it down to four based on it being a former minister in his 50s. So Ed Vaisey, Chris Grayling, Liam Fox or Sajid Javid.

    Ooooh that’s a juicy list.
    EG sweepstake? I’ll have grayling just for the sheer fucking hilarity of that tit going to jail.

    I’d take that list with a pinch of salt. Nobody has actually been charged yet either.

    So Liam Fox being hacked was the source of document leaks last year


    Question is - how basic was the phishing attempt?

    I’m guessing it was day one, page one of hacker school stuff. Possibly even the example the coach says not to use because it’s so obvious
