My thoughts are with those whose lives were shattered on 9/11/2001 - and in the wars and terror unleashed across the globe in its aftermath.

seems about right to me. nowt wrong with that other than to hysteria-fannies.

A bit like sending a condolences message following a death and then adding "& everyone else who's died recently".

He can't help himself.

Neither, it seems, can his apologists.

To be fair brown people who speak funny are worth a bit less though, aren't they.

Nothing wrong there whatsoever.

Out of interest, when Corbyn has spoken publicly on the issue of innocent victims killed in the Middle East, how often has he referenced those that died in the World Trade Centre atrocity?

Or, as he spent months doing, condemning anti-semitism "and all forms of racism". He can't do it. Funny how it doesn't work the other way. Just like he doesn't call the Israeli govt "friends" and he wasn't palling around with Thatcher in the 80s trying to fix NI.

Gosh, that's very racist. I'd not have expected that of you.


Not so openly anyway.

Maybe I misunderstood.

The proposals were also condemned for threatening to “skew our democracy” by the Electoral Reform Society. Katie Ghose, chief executive of the group, said it meant areas with the lowest levels of registration were getting a bad deal.
“Young people, some ethnic minority groups and those in the private rented sector are all less likely to register to vote than others. That makes many of them effectively cut out of the new political map,” she said.
And pray dear,

Just whose fcuking fault is that then? :conf:

Reasonable to reduce the number of MP's
Reasonable to have constituencies more or less of the same voting numbers.
The whole thing was overseen by independent people ... tbh I thought it was the Electoral Reform Society.
The arrangements were first agreed years ago and this was to happen as a quid-pro-quo to the Referendum on the PR. The Liberals lost that vote and then renamed on implementation of this. Lying tw@ts.
Reasonable that some parties are getting upset ... but because it's stopping a current unfairness which is to their advantage.
Labour are whining because they know they get seats on a fraction of the proper norm. I get that they're pissed about that ... however they're complaint that the voting numbers are based on registrations as at December 2015. ffs ..
9 months ago.

... oh. & as I said yesterday, Jeremy's constituency gets redivided and now has way over 1/3 of Jewish decent. Maybe he'll start picking his words a little differently. Or move to a seat where that's less important.

It is a bit like doing a Hillsborough tweet and saying....

"My thoughts are with those who lost their lives at Hillsborough - and all the policemen subsequently who have lost their lives or been injured dealing with hooligans".

He knows the reaction it will have, yet still does it. There isn't a need. It is calculated provocation.

you don;t think it was a dig? Using a tragedy to drum home his ideals?

nahh - I think it was his honest opinion of the horror which led to yet more horror... it's an opinion shared by many. it's pretty close to what I said at church on sunday morning in the prayers as we remembered the dead of 9/11 - nobody walked out or tutted or remonstrated with me afterwards...

The context is different. He knew it would provoke a reaction (unless he's monumentally ignorant) and still did it anyway.

It was a stupid and needless thing to add in the context of his tweet and publically understood opinions.
