    Partisan tribalist Owen Jones is such an embarrassment when the Owen who wrote books was so considered and clear minded

    I find his columns quite insightful, I enjoy reading them. I donít think itís whataboutry to say that racism should be tackled in all its forms and only criticising or condemning one political group is not a fair or balanced way to move forward. At the end of the day itís clear that Labour has to improve their disciplinary systems. I do think there is a very complicated element in antisemetism though, and that is obviously where the criticism of Israel comes into play.

    I think the whataboutery comes from him writing a column on the day of a high profile news item about Labour that's essentially titled "what about the Tories?"

    I don't doubt that his concerns about Tory racism are genuine but it's depressing that he has chosen to use those concerns in an attempt to deflect and minimise Labour's own institutional racism

    Exactly, he could've written that column on any other day of the week. It reeks of deflection.

    He's a twat. He disappeared up his own arse a while ago and has joined the cult.

    It's the curse of the new-born whatevers. He tried jumping off the bandwagon before and now has to double down since he's back on it.

    Yaxley-Lennon gets 9 months in total:

    Joshua Rozenberg


    @JoshuaRozenberg

    YL: six months. Only immediate custody commensurate with seriousness of the case. We activate suspended committal order in full. Total penalty is therefore nine months ó 39 weeks. Already served 10 weeks: 138 days. Heís imprisoned for 19 weeks but will be released halfway.

    Suspect they'll be a few who will view him as a hero. He'll be back in a couple of months being a dick again. The best weapon is a complete media boycott of him.

    Farage, Robinson and Trump. All media darlings, who complain about being victims of media campaigns.

    Just imagine how much of a pathetic bastard you'd have to be to actually be a supporter of Axley-Lennon and to take to the streets to protest at him being lawfully jailed.

    Boris Johnson about his lack of support for Kim Darroch
    And for the record I am a long-standing admirer of Kim Darroch. And I say furthermore that if Donald Trump can make friends with Kim Jong Un, then he can make friends with Kim Dar-roch.

    Ironic of them to accuse the BBC of being "paedo protectors" when Yaxley-Lennon almost caused a child sex case to collapse and several of his supporters have gone down for being paedophiles in the last few years

    It's baffling how inept Robinson is; he hates journalists, but wore a 'convicted of journalism' t-shirt to the sentencing. When asked if he followed the proper reporting restriction as set out by the court, he admitted, in his trial, that he either didn't know what they were or didn't ask.

    So not convicted of anything remotely close to journalism. It's pretty cut and dry that he was found guilty of contempt of court.

    But what about the muslims? And the foreigners?

    It's all just a scam to fleece people thicker than he is. Unfortunately there are those who think he's as real as Jonathan Pie :-)

    C'mon don't buy into the Liberal lies of the deep state, it was obviously a stitch up, all he was doing was exercising his right to involve himself in an unfinished court case. The victims would totally understand that he was trying to get more support for himself and graciously by extension a shout out on his own Web show. They'll benefit one day when he's finished the fight so the only people abusing kids are good old fashioned white guys.

    If you want to bang your head on the desk, read the BBC HYS comments onthe Richard Branson article about no deal brexit making the pound value plummet even more. Full of gammon comments welcoming it saying they will make the UK "very competitive" when it comes to manufacturing and exporting. Cunts

    During the brexit food riots of 2021, what sort of handmade weapons are people making to protect themself and your family? Bat with nails in (Dead rising classic there) might be good, also duct tape will be handy to combine everyday tools (spade-knife)

    Absolutely no shame or empathy for the people they're going to fuck over as long as as they get those cushy jobs. Also fuck Liz Truss with her cutting taxes for high earners is good for the country comments.
