Cameron's anti-extremist promises

Conservative leader David Cameron promises "I will banish extremists from Britain," according to the JC's headline, going on to say that his party "...would never ally with a party we believed to be antisemitic, led by antisemites or with links to the far right."

I wonder if this means the Tories' European friends from Prawo i Sprawiedliwość and Tēvzemei un Brīvībai/LNNK, the latter being the party notorious for including members who attend events celebrating the Waffen-SS?

Oh, David. We know there's a General Election just around the corner and you're desperate for votes now your lead in the opinion polls has slipped so much, but you're so transparent we can see right through your attempt to persuade British Jews to tick your party's box at the ballot box. Perhaps if your actions backed up your words it'd be a different matter, but if you associate with blatant antisemites people are going to assume you're one too.

Of course he won't dissociate from the pogrom deniers and SS lovers. And as for the Muslim extremists, to paraphrase Mandy Rice Davies, who opened some lovely Tel Aviv restaurants: "Well, he would say that, wouldn't he?"

I rather get the impression that he'd say absolutely anything if he thought there was any chance of getting a vote. There's another word starting with P for people like him, other than politician.

Here's a clue: pros___ute.

Prosecute?

It's not generally realised that "Call Me Dave" is the scion (great-grandson) of a German Jewish immigrant to these shores; this info was first broken in the pages of the JC by Prof William Rubinstein, and repeated by Prof Geoffrey Alderman.

So, Yveta, why is this scion of a German Jewish family having political dalliances with pogrom-denying Poles and SS-loving Latvians? You have to question his statements pour les juifs.

Morning, Moshe! Well, I see his Jewish connection is splashed all over the current JC.
If Gordy now uncovers a Rabbie Braun among his antecedents I'll smell a rat in the guise of an election ploy. But with Call Me Dave - never! Even though he's kept it under wraps until now.
I do expect the Tories to be tougher on extremism than Labour has been.
