Building the nation we want.. Wednesday, 18 December 2013 - 5:57.. Home.. Labourhome.. Democracy.. Feminism.. Labour Party.. markets.. planning.. policy.. Sidebar.. Peter Oborne on Israel.. December 25, 2012.. | Author:.. LesAbbey.. Peter Oborne Again.. I have written before of my liking of Peter Oborne s pieces in the Daily Telegraph.. I have very little in common with the man, and probably even less with his politics, but what comes through in his writings is that they say what he really believes in, and that he holds both himself and others to a higher moral and ethical standard than what may be expected nowadays.. In other words this isn t someone who is writing to his boss s orders.. He doesn t come across as a Kelvin McKenzie.. A couple of weeks ago he wrote about the relationship between Israel and the British Conservative Party.. here.. He was brave to do this as the article was quiet critical of the unrestrained support given to Israel by the party.. As others, including Alex Hilton, have pointed out it opens any writer making the criticism to attacks from a pro-Israeli lobby which brooks no such criticism.. Basically what Oborne said about the Tories we could say something similar about Labour.. The lobby s attacks, including by many London Labour members, on Ken Livingstone before the London mayoral election could well have given the election to Johnson.. Read more.. Posted in.. Uncategorized.. |.. 18 Comments.. Cameron s Gay Witch-Hunt.. November 21, 2012.. David Cameron.. When David Cameron was ambushed by Phillip Schofield on daytime TV he must have been pretty annoyed.. That didn t follow the Tony Blair rule book that sitting on a sofa in these shows was a safe bet.. No big questions need be answered and it s so much easier than being in with the likes of Jeremy Paxman.. The ambush for those who didn t see it was fairly amateurish.. Schofield passed a piece paper to Cameron with the names of establishment child abusers he had found on the internet in just a few minutes.. Cameron ignored the list and said that he feared it could turn into a gay witch-hunt.. Now why did he have that fear and use that term?.. 5 Comments.. What a more flexible workforce really means.. October 6, 2012.. How flexible do they need it?.. Our young Tory rising stars, and authors of the recent.. Britain Unchained.. book, look towards Asia for examples of a less rule-bound, more flexible, and of course cheaper, workforce.. I wonder if Vijay Mallya, owner of India s Kingfisher Airlines is considered a role model.. Read a very disturbing article in today s.. Independent.. 22 Comments.. Boris thinks Andrew Mitchell should be arrested.. September 22, 2012.. Thanks to Guido for the link.. Boris points out that Andrew Thrasher Mitchell will go on to commit worse crimes if he is not arrested right now.. 16 Comments.. More Than My Jobsworth.. September 4, 2012.. Damian Green - chief jobsworth.. With the rightful criticism of Michael Gove influencing the exam boards and their unfair treatment of British students,what is happening to overseas students at London Metropolitan University (LMU) could easily be missed.. That would be a shame as it involves equally unfair treatment, albeit of a much smaller number of students.. Being from outside of Britain these students and their parents have very little pressure to bring to bear on the Tory ministers.. So although I could argue that the immigration department of the Home Office is wrong in its overall treatment of foreign students and wrong in expecting public universities to enforce immigration policy for them; for the sake of simplifying the argument let s accept the charges that Damian Green s people have made against the LMU.. 27 Comments.. Will they ever get it?.. July 6, 2012.. Nick Clegg s right hand.. According to.. The Independent s.. story.. , Nick Clegg s.. right hand.. man, Richard Reeves, has just left the building.. Family reasons seems to be the excuse.. Now Mr.. Reeves is an experienced political back-room boy, ex-Labour and ex-Demos.. Not much you could tell this boy about politics  ...   Comments.. All s not fair in the Tories.. June 5, 2012.. Jeremy Hunt - now part of cockney rhyming slang.. I do seem to find some little gems in the opinion pages of the.. Telegraph.. As I ve stated before I m a bit of an admirer of Peter Oborne.. Today s gem isn t from him, but from the.. Telegraph s.. Deputy Political Editor, James Kirkup.. He comments about the unfairness of Cameron quickly referring Sayeeda Warsi for investigation by the ministerial standards guy, but not Jeremy Hunt.. Now Kirkup has his own theories as to why this is so which you can read.. Of course Cameron is wrong.. We all know what s good for the goose is good for the gander.. I don t really want to go too deeply into the case of Jeremy Hunt because most readers will have had their fill of the story already.. I will just add a correction to one line that Cameron has tried a few times.. It s that Hunt had to be doing his job fairly because just look at the decision he made in the end.. Now even someone with a memory as bad as mine could see that Hunt was moving along a line of allowing the BSkyB takeover to happen right up until the Milly Downer phone hacking story broke.. At that point even News international knew that the game was over, at least for now.. The Radical Alternative to Austerity.. May 25, 2012.. John McDonnell.. This post is to help circulate John McDonnell s recent article.. John McDonnell can be found.. The austerity programme of the Coalition government is not just failing; it is prolonging and deepening the recession.. Cuts in investment in public services, in jobs, wages, pensions and benefits are creating mass unemployment and mounting hardship.. 7 Comments.. It s not my joke.. Couldn t find a picture of Luke so we had better go with Cleese.. This is the first time I have linked to a Labourlist article.. Usually I find their contributors are drawn too much from the career apparatchiks who infest the Labour Party now-a-days.. But.. here s a post well worth publicizing written by Luke Sorba and called.. Don t Mention the War.. To give you an idea of the content I m going to paste a paragraph from the article here.. It does show one of the problems the party still has.. Recently, at a training day for future candidates, I was instructed “to learn from business, particularly customer service and sales” and told that winning elections was not about policies but “selling a brand”.. This New Labour mind-set is exactly the sort of baggage the party needs to shed.. It is the attitude that has lost us members since 1997 and cost us Bradford West.. We are not some advertising agency trying to maximise sales whatever the product, we are a political party trying to build a better world.. We must never again look at citizens and see consumers, look at society and see a market, look at services and prioritize choice over standards.. The link to the article is.. 6 Comments..

  • Title: Peter Oborne on Israel | Labourhome - Building the nation we want
    Descriptive info: So take this as my agreement with Oborne that the Netanyahu government is doing its best to wreck any chance of a two-state solution and the settlement of the Middle East problem.. Now this isn t coming from someone, me, who could easily be called anti-Semitic.. In fact you couldn t even call me anti-Zionist as I have no problem with a Jewish homeland, and I don t really have a problem with this homeland being in Palestine.. I have a high respect for some of the Israeli statesmen and stateswomen of those times when I was growing up.. The likes of Golda Meir and Moshe Dayan were heroes in East London back then.. Of course it s a shame that Balfour could make a promise without giving any thought to those already living on those lands at the time.. This just shows the arrogance of the old imperial mindset.. At the same time what a shame that mosques are so often controlled by people far from enlightened, at times almost fascist in their dislike of outsiders.. I will end with a quote from Oborne and hope that you will be able to read the original article without having to go through the Telegraph s paywall.. On no account would I like to help the Berkeley twins make even more money.. I cannot speak for Britain’s Jewish community, but I have a strong impression that many of them would be delighted if Mr Cameron spoke out far more strongly than he has done so far.. Indeed, it is essential that he should do so.. Mr Cameron does not want to go down in history as the man upon whose watch all hope of a two-state solution died, and with it all hope of a secure and peaceful future for the country a Conservative prime minister helped to bring into existence.. Share this:.. Email.. Print.. Facebook.. oborne.. Chris Paul.. Mosques? So often controlled etc? What kind of non sequitor balancing line is that supposed to be? Unnecessary.. Daniel Speight.. I don t think so Chris.. A lot of the early opposition to Jewish immigration into Palestine was anti-Semitic and was led by the religious leadership.. Even today part the Islamic religious leadership around the world uses anti-Semitism in its present day opposition to Israel.. Of course none of this gives an excuse for the actions of the present day Israeli government.. swatantra.. I do wish people would stop making excuses for the Israelis, it only makes matters worse.. Oborne has a point, that the World must speak out more strongly against Israel, but they won t.. I ve come to the sad conclusion that this matter can only be settled by military means ie when Israel is brought to her knees on the battlefield.. Its the only language these people sunderstand..

Or should we keep the Scots in the Union by force if they vote to leave in 2014?.. If you say so Swat.. http://thepeoplesflag.. blogspot.. co.. uk/.. Andy Williams.. It s not that they don t Israel has UN resolutions on it that it is supposed to adhere to and makes no effort to even try knowing that the USA will block any attempt to impose sanctions.. They also routinely ignore international law and international treaties again safe in the knowledge that the USA will prevent any further action.. The paperwork is akk in place it;s the American veto that is preventing any progress.. do you mean anti-semitism or anti-zionism.. The two are entirely different things.. For instance Iran is anti-zionist and Hasidic jews are also anti-zionist.. Hello Andy.. If we are talking about the early Palestinian opposition to Jewish immigration you could say both anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.. That is they didn t like the Zionist idea of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, but also their religious leadership was prepared to use anti-Semitism to rally the locals.. In other words it was death to the Jews rather than death to the Zionists.. As for today, how much anti-Semitism is there in the Muslim world? I suspect quite a lot.. How much anti-Islamic and anti-Arab feeling is there in Israel? I also suspect quite a lot.. What I do know is that we seemed closer to peace in the Middle-East when Jimmy Carter was US president.. It s been downhill ever since.. Happy new year to the world.. Israeli ambassadors from around the world meeting in Jerusalem for their annual get-together have been told to support the government s domestic and foreign policies or resign.. http://www.. independent.. uk/news/world/middle-east/defend-government-policy-or-resign-israels-ambassadors-are-told-8434692.. html.. All is not well in the Israeli foreign service according to the above article in.. This far right Israeli government is doing untold damage to the reputation of its country.. Off-topic, but does anyone know what is happening at Tribune?.. They haven t renewed their domain-name since 10-Nov-2012, so are off-line.. But cannot see any news in Press Gazette, Chartist etc about any rescue or demise.. Looks and sound pretty much dead.. As others, including Alex Hilton, have pointed out it opens any writer making the criticism to attacks from a pro-Israeli lobby.. Sorry but what do you expect a pro Israel lobby to do when Israel is attacked? I mean its what it says on the tin like any lobby, that is its raison d etre.. paul scott.. I think it s important for the Palestinians to have a homeland, equally, for Israel to exist too.. However, the Islamists and media shouldn t be so anti-Semitic too.. Send to Email Address..
