6ocn: Burgon lied

this evening (tuesday 16th), 6.10-6.12pm, on bbc radio 4

six o’clock news includes …

“The disclosure that Richard Burgon described Zionists as the enemies of peace has again reopened Labour’s gaping wound over anti-semitism, one made sharper by the fact Mr Burgon is not only the shadow justice secretary but also a close ally and supporter of Jeremy Corbyn.

His comments have provoked a furious response from leading Jewish organisations, including the British Board of Deputies, who said they encapsulated the total sham of Labour’s approach to anti-semitism.

… only last year … Mr Burgon denied making such remarks.. I didn’t say that, and they couldn’t tell me when they believed I had said that, and it’s not my view.

Tonight, the chairman of the Jewish Labour Movement, Mike Katz, wrote in protest to the party’s chief whip. Nick Brown, and said that Mr Burgon could not play at being lord-chancellor-in-waiting while making dog-whistle attacks on British Jews.”

Corbyn on irony

online only (speech by • jeremy corbyn, originally recorded 19th january 2013)

“[Manuel Hassassian’s speech] was dutifully recorded by the thankfully silent Zionists who were in the audience on that occasion, and then came up and berated him afterwards for what he’d said.
They clearly have two problems. One is they don’t want to study history, and secondly, having lived in this country for a very long time, probably all their lives, they don’t understand English irony either’.”

(the words ‘British’ or ‘Britain’ were not actually used: the daily mail and the bbc have very reasonably inferred them)
(irony, n.: saying something untrue or offensive, but claiming to mean the opposite)
