W@1: Corbyn’s history

this afternoon (sunday 24th), 1.36-1.43pm, on bbc radio 4 

world at one (presented by mark mardell) includes …

Corbyn is perhaps driven by his anti-colonialism, whether the colonial powers are in South America, Vietnam, the Middle East, or Ireland. He’s never changed, but he’s now haunted by that history. Many Labour campaigners who knock on doors will tell you time and time again white working-class men in particular will raise his support for Hamas, and with great disgust the IRA. The former Labour MP Ian Austin agreed [sic] with him in the Commons: ‘The Leader of the Opposition the Shadow Chancellor, these are people who spent their entire time in politics working with, defending, all sorts of extremists and in some cases terrorists and anti-semites’.”

“I don’t know if you’ve seen the Jewish Chronicle this morning, it’s given over its front page to a letter which they say is ‘To all our fellow British citizens’, and the first sentence of the article says ‘The vast majority of British Jews consider Jeremy Corbyn to be an anti-semite’, and it ends that ‘if he’s chosen to be our next prime minister, the message will be stark, that our dismay, our fears of what that will mean, where it will lead, are irrelevant’,”

today (presented by martha kearney and nick robinson) includes…

“I think he’s spent his entire time in politics working with and defending all sorts of people, extremists and in some cases antisemites and terrorists.”

Most shamefully of all, for a party that’s got a proud record of fighting for equality and opposing racism, the Labour Party’s been poisoned with anti-Jewish racism under his leadership, and it is a complete and utter disgrace.”

“If you’re not going to do what’s right on a fundamental question like racism, what are you going to do it on?”
