DIGBY LORD JONES THOUGHTS FOR MAY...


I have been lucky enough to contribute a few utterings to this august journal each and every month for the past five years; indeed this month is the fifth anniversary of “Digby’s Diatribe”! Thank you all for your support and your comments. If the Editor will have me...here’s to the next five!


There is one recurring problem that goes with the territory, something that can’t be altered and it’s just a case of “suck it up & get on with it”. Deadline, print- ing, publishing and distribution dates mean that I am writing this in early April, yet you won’t be reading it until sometime in early May. It sadly means that I can never comment on any fast-moving scenario, as by the time you read my words, the world will have moved on – often significantly. Hey ho…move on…


66


But it does mean that it is pointless me commenting in detail about “The B Word”, since by the time you, Dear Reader, read this, we may be out, we may still be in but nearly out, we may be in for some time yet...indeed, given that we’ve had our left leg in and indeed we’ve also had our left leg out...what if the Hokey Cokey really is indeed what it’s all about?


What I do know, and can say with certainty, is that I never thought I would see the day when a near- Marxist anti-Semite who has rarely, in 40 years, done anything to help our country and has indeed spent a lot of time supporting people and organisations who want to do our country harm, is invited in “to help” the elected Leader of the fifth largest democratic capitalist economy on earth. Quite where all that will lead, God knows...but you will, by the time you read this!


I want to spend the rest of this, my fifth anniversary column, addressing one of the most serious issues to afflict our public realm for decades:


Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, the alternative government of the United Kingdom, running neck-&-neck in the opinion polls with the ruling party, is riven with disease, with a cancer, with an evil that if not destroyed now will destroy our tolerant society: antisemitism.


I say this as a failed Anglican Brummie, I have no specific dog in this fight, but I do recognise evil when I see it and, as we all know,


evil only flourishes when good men do nothing. Men did not die on beaches 75 years ago to defeat evil just so that the filthy antisemitism that murdered six million Jews can flourish again…and sadly flourish in this, our country, that sent hundreds of thousands to die so that a Jew (and a Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Sikh) can live here on equal terms, as a Brit, in welcoming peace and safety.


Over 900 complaints of anti-Semitic behaviour within the Labour Party remain unresolved.


Luciana Berger, a member of the Labour Party since she was 16, is forced out at the age of 40 as a sitting Labour MP because of all the vilification and appalling abuse she receives from her own Party... because she’s a Jew.


A Labour member from Manchester in February writes on Facebook: “About time these cretinous pieces of s**t f**k off back under their stones” and in early April still remains a party member!


Unresolved cases include Labour Party officials receiving evidence of members making comments such as “Heil Hitler” and “F**k the Jews” and “Jews are the problem on this planet”.


Of all cases so far reviewed by the Party only four percent have led to expulsion.


I am indebted to The Sunday Times for these examples and statistics. They show just what the major Party of Opposition is in the grip of.


If any Party leader was faced with all this evidence, then surely she or he would immediately go on National television and radio, condemn it specifically (not a fluffy “I condemn all racism”) and promise that before the sun went down tomorrow each and every single disgusting perpetrator of this sewage (using exactly those words) would no longer be a member of the Labour Party.
