Labour ‘thugs’

I THINK your correspondent Howard Gardner is being dangerously optimistic in his assessment that Jeremy Corbyn (a) isn’t like Hitler, and (b) “if he turned out that way would never be able to get antisemitic legislation passed in the House of Commons”.

I accept that we would be unlikely to have concentration camps here, but Corbyn and his friends have a coterie of thuggish acolytes who terrify anyone of influence — even in their own party — who disagrees with them.

It is highly likely that before the next election there will be an extensive purge of moderate Labour MPs and candidates, especially the Jewish ones who have bravely defended Israel over the last few years at great risk to themselves. One has, in my opinion wisely, recently jumped before he was pushed.

They will be replaced by hard–left activists who have no love whatsoever for Jews and Israel, so Mr Gardner’s hope that Corbyn will recognise the Jewish people’s right to have a homeland in the State of Israel is very unlikely to be realised.

But it’s not only us in the community who need to be worried.

Anybody who these people consider to be a member of the affluent middle class — ie “the few” referred to in Labour’s new slogan “for the many, not the few” — needs to start planning for a change of government now.

Those six words tell you everything you need to know.
