The Financial Times celebrates the Labour Party’s loss of 45,000 members in 2018. Old Socialist comments

‘He has faced continued questions over his handling of anti-Semitism complaints within the party.’

The Great Lie of Corbyn’s mythical antisemitism, has been the hysterical accusation made by the New Labour faction, since Mr. Freedland’s Guardian column . With the help of Labour Friends of Israel and Ms Hodge, among the bad political actors selling this lie.  The Blairites refuse to see that their Thatcherism Lite is an abject failure . But this faction is greedy and self-serving, although Neo-Liberalism as a ideology and political system has collapsed.

Any lie might do, but Antisemitism offers so much as a functional lie in service to maintaining the political viability of New Labour, as  being on the ‘right side of history’ in its support for the Zionist State, and the lie of the EU as the savoir of ‘Europe’ . That myth began with Monnet’s Coal and Steel Cartel now weighted down with the ersatz trapping of Federalism.

From the sneeringly arrogant Posh Boy Cameron,to the always dyspeptic May , to the buffoonery of Johnson resembles a combination of ‘Beyond The Fringe’ ,‘Benny Hill’ and ‘Monty Python‘ : to pass through three generations!

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.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
