"Taking The Jack"

By Jonathan Hoffman
February 7, 2010

" .... the JC has spoken to several government sources who have said Mr Straw was “playing dirty” to delay an announcement."

For those who have been asleep for the last four months, this refers to the legal change needed to stop Israelis being vexaciously arrested when they come to England.

You've heard of "Taking the Mick", well this is "Taking the Jack" .... of course getting the meaningless "Alternative Vote" through Parliament is much more important, they've only had 13 years to warm to the idea of PR.

Angry? Then sign this petition to Gordon Brown and send it to your family and friends. 600 have already signed. All UK residents can sign provided you have your own email address. UK citizens abroad can also sign.


And when it comes to the election in less than 100 days, remember which party has sat on its hands over the vexacious arrest law - LABOUR

So for the sake of preventing a bit of student politics grandstanding by the anti-Zionists, you are happy to see various war criminals from around the world walk free in the UK? How very self-serving and studenty of you.

Someone said to me that Straw is dragging his heels because more than 25% of his voters in Blackburn are Moslem.

I told them I was sure he would not let that stand in the way of right and wrong ... especially with him being Justice Minister......

One has to wonder who this government thinks their 'important' voters are.

They sit on their hands over this issue, they invite the MCB back into the fold, they permit all kinds of Islamist extremists access, not just to enter the country but to sit down and be seen with Labour hierarchy.

Presumably they believe that in cosying up to extremists, their Muslim constituents will vote so that some of them keep their seats, if not their jobs.

As the JC's Stephen Pollard said in his recent Spectator article 23rd January, "...the extremists have won another battle.........A mess entirely of this spineless, incompetent Cabinet's own making".

Quite. Spineless and incompetent and disloyal to their real core voters, as opposed to the people they believe will keep them in place.

I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of ordinary British Muslims are as sick of people like the MCB and an assortment of Islamist agitators as are the rest of us. Lets hope they demonstrate that by giving Labour the push, including many of its present ministers, at the forthcoming election.

The sooner this wretched government is booted out, the better. Straw is obviously thinking of that big Muslim presence in his constituency, and as the JC has recently observed, Brown could have ended this stalemate by supporting Miliband and overriding Straw. None of that lot is trustworthy where Israel is concerned, and at this stage it must be clear that the worst Tory government would be better than this Labour one.
Don't vote UKIP - it is in effect a wasted vote that might see this terrible Labour crowd retain power.

Allowing war criminals, murderers, liars etc to walk free simply because of their special ethnic identity. You've got to be taking the Jonathan.

Yvetta, are you conceited enough to believe that people are going to vote on the behest of your reasoning - do you assume jewish people to be that sheepish and gullible?
That's a rhetorical question by the way, you don't need to answer it.
