At The Financial Times : Antisemitism & Jeremy Corbyn, the manufactured crisis

At The Financial Times Robert Shrimsley opines on April 28, 2016:

How Jeremy Corbyn turned me into a political Jew. It is simply impossible to vote for a Labour party that does not appear to like us.

A Financial Times April 28,2016 editorial states:

Jeremy Corbyn’s halfhearted shrug over anti-Semitism.The Labour leader’s failure on this issue is tarnishing his leadership.

The Financial Times editors even resurrect this February 19, 2016 essay by Simon Schama:

The left’s problem with Jews has a long and miserable history. Anti-Israel demonstrations are in danger of morphing into anti-Semitism, writes Simon Schama

Also see this picture of the suggested stories that might be of interest to me because of my browsing history, under the Shrimsley essay:


The Livingstone and Naz Shah controversies offer a perfect opportunity to not just throw a bit of mud at Mr. Corbyn, but to bring him down as Labour leader.The charges of fostering the growth of Antisemitism within the Party, of associating with known Antisemites and most unforgivable of all just being on the Left.The fact of being on the Left is indicative of moral/political disorder prima facie. After all the FT invented ‘The Rebellion Against The Elites’, and would like to replace Corbyn with a more house-trained  Neo-Liberal, who can wear a proper suit and sing God Save The Queen with gusto. With the proviso that he has the charm and bonhomie of Tony Blair.

Almost Marx





About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
