No it isn't. People are allowed to criticise Israel just like they're entitled to criticise the government.

It's the only democracy in the Middle East. Another reason why the Palestinians hate Israel.
I'm going to suggest that's quite a colonial attitude,we take the land from the savages? ...

So now the Labour Peers are up in arms.
Meeting on Monday to discuss a no confidence vote on Jeremy Corbyn.

Ok I'm going to say it, the closer we come to a general election the more there is talk of ousting Corbyn, the issue within Labour hasn't got any worse, it's been shown that the complaints department has sped up four fold . If Corbyn was to step down would the problem go away?...

A GE is still a couple of years away though?

There seems to be some rumblings that the Torys would like to get a GE in before Corbyn is pushed so we might have one in the Autumn

I don't think so, and Labour are ahead in the polls so there's a renewed sense of urgency to remove Corbyn. I think it's disgusting this issue is being used as a means to remove him. But I have to say that is what appears to be happening now.

there will be a vote of confidence if the government try and go for a no deal, so we could have a GE by October

Corbyn finally acts and sacks someone.... for criticising HIM! If only they'd acted so quickly on anti-Semitism......

Labour’s shadow Brexit *minister, Dianne Hayter, has been sacked after she likened the “bunker mentality” around Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership to the “last days of Hitler”.

Lady Hayter, Labour’s deputy leader in the Lords, was stripped of her shadow cabinet position after she attacked Corbyn’s inner circle and its critical response to a BBC Panorama programme investigating antisemitism complaints within the party. “To compare the Labour leader and Labour party staff working to elect a Labour government to the Nazi regime is truly contemptible, and grossly insensitive to Jewish staff in particular,” a Labour party spokesman said. He added that Hayter had been sacked “with immediate effect” for her “deeply offensive remarks about Jeremy Corbyn and his office”.

Hayter, who remains the party’s deputy leader in the Lords because it is an elected position, made the remarks at a meeting of Labour First – a *centre-left group of MPs and activists – on Tuesday. Addressing the meeting, she said: “Those of you who haven’t [read the book] will have watched the film *Bunker, about the last days of *Hitler, of how you stop receiving into the inner group any information which suggests that things are not going the way you want.”

The Ilford North Labour MP, Wes Streeting, said Hayter’s sacking was a “gross over-reaction to a comment that was actually about Jeremy Corbyn’s bunker mentality”.
He added: “This sacking only reinforces her point. The speed of this sacking shows that Labour’s leader is quick to act to protect his feelings, but slow to act against racists. The double standards are extraordinary.

“Dianne Hayter remains the elected deputy leader of the Labour group in the House of Lords, regardless of *Jeremy Corbyn’s purge.”

Annoyed at being likened to Hitler? !The nerve...
Again how can the issue be depoliticised and independent if Corbyn makes the decisions?

There are some for whom he could never do any wrong. Gladly, those numbers are reducing. I hear there's likely to be a vote of no confidence in him next week. It's about time he was replaced. See Labour spring up in the polls when he is.
