@OwenJones84 @Cornish_Damo Hi Owen, we met 3-4 years ago if you remember when you came to Nuneaton to see us in Momentum. I think you have to recognise that's there's a lot of disenchantment with Momentum nationally from a lot of the left who aren't happen with the leadership. That's a legitimate criticismRick Evans 🖐️#Richard4Deputy #KeepLabourLeft ️ @Skybluerick1 • 26 Feb 19:34 GMT
@RebeccaWiIks @BenJolly9 @OwenJones84 @Cornish_Damo On the 'lobby' issue I don't think there's a problem with the term itself, just how it tends to get used. Ditto zionism. Maybe Burgon's political university could help here. It shouldn't just be left to you or me.Angus Hebenton @AngusHebenton • 26 Feb 13:24 GMT
@Bortne24 @TweetForTheMany @gaoblai @Cornish_Damo Christ. Opinion writers are a subset of journalists, news reporters are another, as are sports writers or subs. This is exactly the sort of attack I'd expect from the right. My pieces are always honest, whether you like them or not. I'll leave you to your conspiracismOwen Jones @OwenJones84 • 26 Feb 13:05 GMT
@RebeccaWiIks @BenJolly9 @OwenJones84 @Cornish_Damo She's also not had as much support from left media as she might have. But I think she's been a good choice, I don't think anyone else would be doing better.Angus Hebenton @AngusHebenton • 26 Feb 13:00 GMT
@gaoblai @TweetForTheMany @OwenJones84 @Cornish_Damo How is it conspiracy when presenting words that he himself has spoken?
Also, sorry Ewan, I meant to remove you from my last lot of replies but forgot.
@OwenJones84 @TweetForTheMany @gaoblai @Cornish_Damo What I mean by "journalism" is a certain dedication to the truth that so-called journalists in this country have forgotten. It is not your role to tell us what to think, but rather to provide us with facts so we can decide how to think. And here you seem to have missed many factsBarry Craik @Bortne24 • 26 Feb 12:51 GMT
@OwenJones84 @gaoblai @Cornish_Damo Character limits. Keep reading. And of course they feel unrepresented when you have people like Lansman attacking them.
Also, define "most progressive Jews." I see many, many comments around on Twitter from Jewish people supporting Corbyn, and calling out the smear campaign.
@gaoblai @OwenJones84 @Cornish_Damo Really? Then why is he telling JLM that Corbyn needs AS training? For that matter, why is he working with Corbyn's enemies in the first place?
@OwenJones84 @gaoblai @Cornish_Damo If you don't think the antisemitism claims have been an orchestrated smear campaign against Corbyn, and by extension the rest of the left/socialist members of Labour, then you really haven't been paying attention.Barry Craik @Bortne24 • 26 Feb 12:28 GMT
@Bortne24 @gaoblai @Cornish_Damo what anti-Corbyn antisemitism smears? He has resolutely defended Corbyn from those accusations. He has, however, taken antisemitism seriously - and been on the receiving end of it. That's the basis for this and again, it is extremely disturbing and I'm not going to engage with itOwen Jones @OwenJones84 • 26 Feb 12:18 GMT
@RebeccaWiIks @BenJolly9 @Cornish_Damo I stand by what I said, Ben (I deleted the tweets because frankly I didn't want to fuel the fire).
