This Is No Time For Suspension

Imagine that Pete Willsman had said that about the Russians. No one would have batted an eyelid, despite the total lack of evidence. Yet the evidence of Israeli, and Saudi, and increasingly also Emirati, interference in British politics is incontrovertible.

How did Willsman say anything remotely controversial? Rabbis of different denominations literally do not speak to each other. Someone with all of their email addresses organised that round robin against Jeremy Corbyn, and there is really only one body in that position. Yes, the embassy of a foreign state.

As for the Equality and Human Rights Commission. But then, since it employs Adam Wagner, what else could anyone possibly have expected but racism to the core? To whom does one complain? Who guards The Guardian?

No, Willsman's words would have been uncontentious, despite the fact that they would have been totally false, if he had uttered them about Russia, or increasingly also about China. While any suggestion that Russia or China were torturing or poisoning the man who had exposed their war crimes would be huge news, even if there were in fact no torture, no poison, and no war crimes.

By the starkest of contrasts, Julian Assange is being tortured and poisoned to death before our very eyes. Yet Corbyn says nothing, while his party suspends Willsman from membership. Another hung Parliament is coming, however, and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it.

I need £150 as soon as possible, to register a new party. And even without that, it has become a local commonplace that I am on 30-30-30 with Labour and the Conservatives here at North West Durham, so that any one of us could be the First Past the Post. I will stand for this seat, if I can raise the £10,000 necessary to mount a serious campaign. Please email Very many thanks.
