David Hearst - The truth about Seumas Milne, Jeremy Corbyn and the new McCarthyism

False accusations by yesterday's spooks against Milne and Corbyn are a direct attempt to stop a popular and democratically elected leader from becoming prime minister

But David Hearst doesn't like Putin. 

It's all about Israel

I will end with just two observations. The Labour Party could very well split if more defections are in the offing. These interventions by yesterday’s spooks are not casual, nor are they ill-timed. They are a direct attempt to stop a popular and democratically elected leader from becoming prime minister. 
They are, therefore, actively, consciously and cynically subverting British democracy. You may like Corbyn or loathe him. That's up to you, but you may never be allowed to express your opinion at the ballot box, if these guys have their way. And how would you feel if the tactics used on Corbyn were  used on you? What would you do  if your character had been assassinated repeatedly and you had no means of redress? Is this the way you want politics conducted in " the mother of all parliaments"?
The second is that this debate about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party is all about Israel, and whether indeed anti-Zionism is anti-Semitic. There are many British Jews who support Corbyn, who do not feel threatened by Corbyn’s pro-Palestinian stance and wrote of their support in a letter to The Guardian.

The notion of “conservative” party is a joke.

The UK “conservative” government will mandate school lessons that promote homosexuality and transgenderism for primary school students as young as age 5.

It will be illegal for parents to take their children out of the classroom (unless parents take them completely out of the education system and home-school their children).

Each student must attend at least one term’s worth of pro-LGBTQ classes – and likely far more.
