    So is Corbyn himself anti Semitic, yes or no? And as you define his crime, you say some truth and then mix in with “choose to turn a blind eye" where it’s not strictly fair to say that, that’s not democratic politics, that is more than a little 1930s Germany.

    Get on YouTube and look at Mrs T at the dispatch box, v Kinnock, with Skinner shouting in, they are noticeably polite and respectful in how they conduct their professional business compared to politics today. There is a lot of crap that should stay across the pond, politicians demonising each other is just not British. And set bad example from the top, it’s showing up in my favourite political blogs too.

    Anti Semitism is a terrible crime. But to tar a politician or a poster here as anti Semitic when they are not is also wrong.

    that offending mural, The Statement is clearly anti Semitic. It looks eye catching to me, I prefer its artwork to the Rivera, but It must be whitewashed over and give a fairer minded person a go on the canvass. The anti Semitism wasn’t instantly obvious to me either, but then I read the artist himself admitted he deliberately gave the gaming bankers Jewish heads, as with all art: what you know will change what you see.
