Two serving Jewish Labour councillors have spoken out for the first time to expose the “extraordinary” levels of “institutional anti-semitism” in Momentum’s Haringey heartland in north London - thread 👇

thetimes.co.uk/article/jewish…
Joe Goldberg and Natan Doron said they had been repeatedly abused to their faces by pro-#Corbyn #Labour members — including fellow councillors — with crude allusions to their race or insulting references to the #Holocaust 👇
Goldberg the council’s cabinet member for economic development was accused by #Labour councillor of “bagel-barrel politics”

Same councillor said academy schools comparable to “Kristallnacht”, the Nazi pogrom in which 1,400 synagogues were attacked & dozens of Jews murdered 👇
This is not just on social media.

Many members have repeated assertions about Jews

having big noses;

controlling the media; and

being wealthy 👇
It has become impossible to operate as a #Jewish councillor in the #Haringey party without having your views and actions prejudged or dismissed in terms that relate to your ethnicity 👇
Doron said he was twice harangued while out canvassing not by voters on the doorstep but by fellow #Labour members he was working with

One of them started having a rant about how Israel was a Nazi country & I had no right to be offended because Israel had no right to exist 👇
The 2 Councillors are among more than 20 serving #Labour Haringey councillors who have resigned or been deselected and will be replaced in May’s local elections by pro-#Momentum candidates. 👇
#Harringey council, which is safely #Labour, is almost certain to become the first run by the hard-left group.

After Goldberg announced his retirement, a Haringey #Momentum activist, Shahab Mossavat, tweeted: “At least [you] will have more time to count your money.” 👇
Doron’s replacement as a candidate, Charley Allan, was suspended from the party last year for using the insulting term “Zio”.

Doron said: “People are worried & scared and #Haringey #Labour is definitely not a safe space for #Jews.

This is 100% not the party I joined.” 👇
Goldberg said he had made at least five formal complaints to local officials but got nowhere.

“I complained to the #Labour whip, Lorna Reith, but she told me #Antisemitism was a ‘debatable term’,” 👇
On Holocaust Memorial Day in January 2015, #Labour whip, Lorna Reith, retweeted a picture equating Israel’s military attacks on Gaza to the #Holocaust 👇
In 2016 #Momentum’s then-chairman in Haringey, Phil Rose, admitted sharing material from an anti-semitic, far-right American website on the Tottenham #Labour Party Facebook group

Rose posted a link to rense.com, a recognised hate site 👇
Rose's post was in a discussion about Jackie Walker, a national #Momentum activist suspended after saying that #Jews were the “chief financiers of the slave trade”.

Theresa May must tell UK customs union costs

Being inside the customs union costs Britain billions of pounds each year

UK shoppers overpay for non-European imports due to common external tariffs protecting inefficient producers elsewhere in the EU👇

telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/…
Four fifths of these revenues go to Brussels

They’re particularly steep on clothing, food and footwear, hitting poorer UK shoppers hardest – which is unfair

To divert money we send the EU to the NHS instead we must be outside the customs union

Stick that on the side of a bus👇
Staying in the customs union means charging EU tariffs with no say in setting them – the “vassal state” argument

This is the ghastly deal foisted on Turkey – an unproven partner state trying to join the EU

Britain is not Turkey – Brussels is trying to keep us and our money in👇
