Interesting read. Some sanity at last.


What is illuminating is that it is 2 years old and yet seems like it was written yesterday as we go through yet another anti-Semitism smear campaign against the UK left.

I'd guess were going to see some proper old fashioned anti-Semitism from the right after this, not the sort which leads to Jewish people being expelled from the Labour Party for criticizing Israel.

This rang so many bells it sounded like Westminster Cathedral on wedding day.

We live in an age when a single viral image of a politician looking stupid while eating a bacon sandwich is more likely to damage a career than authorizing a drone strike on a foreign school. The result is a complete subordination of substance to style, as voters come to demand that performative facets – strength, certitude, infallibility – take precedence over moral ones like honesty and compassion.
