Ugly Looney Labour Anti-Semitism Rears Again

'Apologise!' Harriet Harman faces FURIOUS backlash for anti-semitic joke on BBC This Week

Harriet Harman, MP for the "real scumbag party", has caused outrage on the Andrew Neil show by telling a "vile" holocaust joke on live TV.

http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/875...emands-apology

"her decision to repeat the joke sparked a huge backlash on social media, including a scolding response from host Andrew Neil who said he was “appalled”."

"And now the Jewish Leadership Council has demanded Ms Harman issue a formal apology for her “staggering error of judgement”."

"Ms Harman then tried to explain herself, before Mr Neil told her to "be quiet". "


Looney Labour - Simply Unelectable

Re: Ugly Looney Labour Anti-Semitism Rears Again

This has been all over Twitter today but not for the obvious reason you would think. A fellow Labour MP (Liz McInnes) leapt to Harman's defence stating that Labour should boycott Andrew Neil's show because he had the temerity to tell her to be quiet. The fact that this vile person told an equally vile `joke` about the holocaust causing Neil's reaction seems to have escaped her.

Wonder if she's another anti-Semite?

In short, she was trying to make a point but shouldn't have cited the joke.

Is she anti-semitic? I doubt it, based on this one piece of "evidence"

It's absolutely apalling that anti semitism is once again on the rise .
Another reason why Labour will not get into power it's pretty obvious to all whose toes they don't want to tread on.

Daft woman doesn't do herself any favours does she.
Didn't she suggest Andrew Neil would have found an anti-Semitic joke funny?
He took exception to that and I don't blame him.

Yes, I watched that this morning (a recording) and was shocked at what she said. Clearly, she thought it was funny too.

I have always regarded Harperson as a disgusting woman, but this was even worse than I could have expected, and on live TV.

I think the best thing would be for her to be ejected from the Loony Party.

Actually, on reflection, no. Don't eject her. She, along with Compo and Fatbott, will make the Loonies unelectable for years.

She's also made this point using the same `joke` in her new book - no such thing as bad publicity eh?

Re: Ugly Looney Labour Anti-Semitism Rears Again

ALL.....yes......ALL humour is cruel.........recalling an example of a cruel joke that happens to be about Jews is NOT antisemitic.

Please someone.........anyone.....explain how is it.

"My wife went to the West Indies" "Jamaica ?"........."No she went on her own"
Suppose that is racist ?

Hi

The Jamaica joke is funny and certainly not racist.

Any joke about the Concentration Camps and the murder of millions is totally unacceptable.

The two are in no way comparable.
