British Political Parties being dragged Down the Rabbit Hole

UK political Parties are now truly being dragged into the Rabbit Hole of Madness, Middle East Hatred, Anti Islamic or Antisemitic.

Pick your Poison.
Both Labour and the Tories are being pulled into the conflict of hatred.

One bottle of poison prescribed by Baroness Warsi says.


The Muslim Council of Britain has now called on the Tories to launch an independent inquiry into allegations of Islamophobia.

The group said the last month had seen weekly incidents of Islamophobia from Conservative representatives and candidates. Baroness Warsi told Sky News the issue was a long-running one for the Tories and “was an issue for us long before the issue of anti-Semitism within the Labour Party became public”. She said: “I’ve raised this issue with successive chairman, I’ve raised the matter informally, I’ve raised it formally, I’ve had meetings about it, I’ve even written to the prime minister.
“I wrote to her last year about this issue, and each time it seems that we’ve kind of said ‘yes, we take these issues very seriously’ and then shrugged our shoulders and moved on. “What’s really concerning for me is that the frequency of these incidents seems to be now increasing, whether that’s because there’s now more public awareness about reporting these issues.

“I hope, sincerely, the party now will deal with it.”

The other bottle of poison comes from Jonathan Arkush, attacking the Labour Party and in particular Jeremy Corbyn branding it antisemitic, he says.


Jeremy Corbyn holds “antisemitic views” which could drive Jewish people to leave Britain if he becomes prime minister, one of the UK’s most senior Jewish leaders has said.

Jonathan Arkush, the outgoing president of the board of deputies, said Corbyn “has views which are antisemitic, and he has problematic views”. He also criticised the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who should have had a “stronger, clearer voice” in support of the Jewish community, he said.

Arkush, who was among senior Jewish leaders who met Corbyn in April to discuss concerns about antisemitism, told the Daily Telegraph that British Jews were asking: “Do we have a future here?”

“Delegitimising the state of Israel is antisemitic,” Arkush told the newspaper. “He was a chairman of Stop the War, which is responsible for some of the worst anti-Israel discourse.

“If he shares the prevalent discourse about Israel, then that view is unquestionably antisemitic.”

Arkush said Corbyn would need to tell Jews that he “will not accept a discourse which denies the existence of their own land to the Jewish people … I think we are all entitled to some clarity on his real views about Israel”.

Corbyn’s spokesman said the comments were “personal attacks without any evidence to support them … Jeremy has been absolutely clear that he is a militant opponent of antisemitism and is committed to driving it out of our movement”.

My view is we do not want what you’re selling, we do not want the continuation of the hatred from both sides of a religion and conflict that will not be resolved. People, I am sure when they come to the UK they come in hope of a better life, a life away from the hatred a life free from persecution and intolerance.

I say: The British people on large are warm welcoming and accepting but what is now happening and instigated by just a minority with axes to grind on both sides will only create bitterness and lead to more bigotry racism and hate for all.

We have issues in this country that need resolving without having to adopt the very same things that have been tearing the Middle East apart for a millennium. Whatever responsibility you want to place on the U.K. historically it is gone!  You are no longer part of that conflict, the people in the Middle East and people of divided religions can only reflect their own actions not what others have done or did not do!

You have made your home here, some for generations just like the rest of the world we have changed.  We are all trying to work for a better future an inclusive future that does not look at religion or race but at the person, not the gender, colour or former nationality no matter our political divide. The attitude of most working class people is ‘leave your troubles behind‘, this is not an extension of your differences.  This is a fresh start we all reserve the right to call out injustices in the world but we also reserve the right not to let it dominate our political world.

I respect your freedom to have a religion and even practice it. But I do not respect the fact that you want your religion to dominate our politics or undermine the working class struggle.
