Context is all
Len McCluskey goes to town today in the New Statesman on the Corbyn-hating Labour MPs - well worth a read. There are quite a few names he could add to his list. I guess none of them will be seeking - or accepting - Unite's support when it comes to the next general election.
Yes, context is all. As Ruth Smeeth MP went to give evidence in the Labour Party disciplinary case against Marc Wadsworth, whom she accuses of making an anti-semitic remark about her after she was allegedly handed a press release by a Daily Telegraph journalist at the launch of the Chakrabati report, she was very much in the spotlight again. So I had a quick look on the internet. Naturally, one takes anything on the internet with a pinch of salt (except this website of course) and I found the following three items, all worth looking at and assessing for yourself. Do these sources stand up? Are the claims true? Does any of the mainstream media have any interest in researching this, just to be sure that they're being objective? Here is the 'evidence' : Wadsworth's 'anti-semitic remark' on video; who is Ruth Smeeth? And lastly, I can only say Oh dear. Is any of this true? Is it all fake? All of it seems reasonably sourced to me, but these days there are technologies being developed which can literally put words into your mouth. Nevertheless, you would have thought some of this stuff might have received more attention in our mighty media.
