John McDonnell apologises ‘for the suffering we have inflicted’ on Jewish community


Can I ask you, first of all, why is it
that so many people with such disgusting views felt at home
in the Labour party? It wasn’t so many people, it was a small number and I don’t care
how many it was. One antisemite in our party is too many. And what we’ve done is we’ve started
kicking them out in numbers. If you lose if you lose this election,
this will be part of the reason. I worry that this has had its effect and that
we’ve done everything I think we can possibly do. We’ve we’ve apologised to the Jewish community – and I repeat …
– nothing more you could do? Well, wait a minute. We’ve always got to learn lessons,
of course we have, all political parties. It isn’t just the Labour party. I want us to be a shining model. I apologise to the Jewish community for
the suffering we’ve inflicted on them. I say to them, we’re doing everything possible. We’re going to learn more lessons
and we want to be the shining example of antiracism that the Labour party should
be. And I hope I come out of this now having
in this horrible, horrible period, we’ve come out of it now, actually showing
the respect to the Jewish community and tackling this issue and enabling the
Labour party to tackle antisemitism and our wider society at.

    Frankly I don't think that you can make an honest criticism of Labour for the efficacy of its anti-racist process without mentioning it is the only party that has one at all. Further, I am puzzled by the intense claims of betrayal from a demographic that has historically voted less than 15% Labour.

    It just feels like the media picked up on one part of that sentence. Feels like John McDonnell just fell into a media trap to paint the Labour party as being racist or something absurd.

    Well, the Tory party has so much 1slamaphobia that they decided to pull the investigation into it till after the elections. Tory Croydon MP served for the 1RA. And let's not forget the incumbent PM who is h0m0phobic, [email protected], and a m1sogynist…

    The reason that people are focusing on racism/antisemitism in the Labour Party is because the Labour Party is renowned for common decency and fairness.

    People expect racism/antisemitism from the rightwing, so don't see it as anything unexpected.

    So, Labour struggles with guilt over the behaviour of a few, whilst the rightwing parties just deny there is anything wrong in their parties, because they think racism/antisemitism is perfectly acceptable.

    Labour has morals and therefore people look for hypocrisy, Tories have no morals, therefore people don't bother looking.

    How very Alice In Wonderland.

    How many apologies we up to now? Is it a coincidence weโ€™re running up to an election and itโ€™s asked every single time? Could the argument be made that Labour has done everything it possibly can and apologised multiple times, so at this point itโ€™s being used as a smear and distraction without a doubt?

    McDonnell is without doubt the most dangerous man in the UK. His plan for the economy would cause the biggest financial crash this century.
    Him finding ยฃ175,000,000000. (175 billion) by make the richest 'pay a little more' is a fairy story. We all know who will be paying, all of us.Within days the fuel duty freezes will be lifted, with some excuse of saving the planet. Happy motoring.
    Doing away with the NHS using the private sector and then implementing a 4 day week would make a great script for Monty Python. The similarity between him and Joseph Gorbals is frightening.
