Exclamation Diane Abbott loses whip for Anti-Semitism




The MP faces an investigation by the Labour Party into a letter she wrote about racism for the failing The Observer newspaper


Diane Abbott has lost the Labour whip after suggesting Jewish people do not
suffer racism.

The MP is set to face an investigation by the party into a letter she wrote
about racism for The Observer newspaper.

The politician said "many types of white people with points of difference" can
experience prejudice, in a letter published on Sunday.

But they are not subject to racism "all their lives", she said.

"In apartheid South Africa, these groups were allowed to vote.

"And at the height of slavery, there were no white-seeming people manacled
on the slave ships."

It stated that Jewish, Irish and traveller communities have experienced
“prejudice”, but added: “This is similar to racism and the two words are often
used as if they are interchangeable.”

Ms Abbott had added: “It is true that many types of white people with points
of difference, such as redheads, can experience this prejudice. But they are
not all their lives subject to racism.”

Well quite. And for that reason it wouldn't be fair to use a woman who can't count past ten without removing her shoes and socks as an indictment of Labour as a whole.

She's overstepped the mark before in my view but this time has gone way too far over it.

Time she was advised to, made to or decided to step down now.
In my view.

Could potentially see what road she was taking to get to the point she was trying to make, but **** me she got lost at a wrong turn somewhere, do any of these politicians have any aids or whatever that can tell them when they’re gonna make complete dicks of themselves?

Rightfully deserved suspension and it conveniently makes Starmer look much stronger with his party than the dithering Sunak did over Raab

Jewish people might have faced a systemic attempt to exterminate their people but it's not as bad as having to sit at the back of a bus

The point about Irish people experiencing discrimination in the U.K. (not racism) is funny considering the fact that certain parts of Liverpool (to use an obvious relevant example) were known for being notoriously racist but a good chunk (if not most) of white Scousers have significant Irish ancestry. The hypocrisy with racists is funny as hell.

I remember thinking Diane Abbot was disjointed when I met her in person (2012). I thought the mojito stuff was her turning over a more endearing leaf but from the stuff she continues to spout (on Twitter and elsewhere) she continues to embarrass herself.

What a load of ridiculous stereotyping and generalisations, you sound pretty "prejudiced" there yourself...

This part has been overlooked a fair amount. Not only is it fairly braindead to (pretend to?) think that white people have never been enslaved, but it implicitly absolves the African slave traders (who supplied the British Empire) from blame.

I’m not stereotyping, Niamh. The thing about white Scousers having significant Irish ancestry is just a fact. I’m not saying that to slate Irish people in any way. That’s not what I’m getting at at all. I’m just saying that the people from Liverpool who were part of the problem good chunks of Liverpool used to have with racism back in the day (not so much now, but as recently as 2008 or even 2012 there were certain areas of Liverpool that black people would be uncomfortable about visiting alone, and you’re just going to take that from someone who knows) were hypocritical and self-contradictory in the sense that it wasn’t too long ago that people quite similar to them in many ways experienced a similar kind of discrimination in Britain in the not-too-distant past.
