Pretentious, moi? I never buy wine that costs more than a fiver, preferably on special. Pretentious isn't the word. Discriminating is the one you're looking for. Chardonnay still wine is the drink of the ignoranti, rather like Liebfraumilch used to be in the 70s. Avoid NZ whites which are all over-priced and usually too cloying. Sauvignon blanc can be good, mainly from France, maybe the odd Chilean, but there are some real shitters around. Pinot grigio, yawn. A good steely Italian white from Vesuvio, or the exceptionally dependable Viña Sol from Torres, is my recommendation for decent budget white. Some nice Marsanne from the south of France too, sunshine in a glass. Leave the Chardonnay for the kids and the Essex girls. About your level, actually. Someone's got to drink it I suppose. Oaky whites? I puke in your general direction.

It was all a bit of a bugger, Dave, and very last-minute. A two-car family entourage, brother, sister-in-law, her sister (all from New Zealand) plus me dad in one car, then me, Mrs Steve and me mum in my car. Met at the Lister and had a very tolerable lunch. Good old pub, though a bit too much oil in the beer batter. Then they went off up Gordale and we drove up t'other road to Malham Tarn, then over to Arncliffe, up to Litton then past me favourite mountain, Penyghent, down to Settle then 'ome. No getting out for a walk, all about taking 88-year-old mum for a nice ride. There'll be a next time, Dave, when I don't have quite so many people to keep happy!

"I never have."
Back to lying again Keith
You started this lynching and have pursued from day one
Yu refuse to respond to the facts of the obvious agendas - B.D. S. and the fight within the labour party - you dredge up combatants from both, you quote them out of context of whare they stand - both as opponents of Corbyn and supporters of the Israeli regime, you refuse to tell us why, after a year, we still do not know what this "antisemistism" is and who is involved, you make up antisemitic reasons why the Jewish mambers don't go public, you deny having done so - now you won't explain why they don't simply support their fallow Jews and explain what is happening
"£hey made their complaints about the party to the party leadership,"
See what I mean
WHAT IS STOPPING THEM FROM SIMPLY IGNORING THE LABOUR PARTY LEADERSHIP AND GOING TO THE PRESS - THEY WOULD HAVE A WILLING EAR THERE.
wHAT IS STOPPING THE ISRAELI REGIME FROM MAKING PUBLC THE EVENTS =- THEY HAVE ENOUGH SUPPORTERS WITHIN LABOUR - WHY THE BLANKET OF SILENCE?

The answer is simple
The "antisemitism in the Labout Party is no mare than opposition to the Isreali ergime - pure and simple
The Israeli regime has decared that to criticise its policies is antisemitic - that is what Labour is being accused of
You have kept this up for a year now and we are no nearer knowing any of these answwrs
WE do know what Livingstone and Shah said - neither attacked the Jewish People so neither were antisemitic - my point exactly
Shah borrowed the idea of a Jewish researcher as a solution for the Palestine problem and Livingstone quoted historical facts about Zionism - not the Jewish people
Even if they were, two members of the Labour party is not "a serious problem"
Not believeablt that politicians lie to gain political advantage - you live in Britain don't you - lying is part of the job description.
No sane human being accuses somebody and perisits in doing so, whithout carefully laying out what they are guilty of, and no "decent" democratic society would ever condemn the accused without having all the information at hand
To do so would be vigilante lynch-law - that is what you are proposing here
What has Labout done
You suggest I am extremist left (I am not)
You ignore the fact that the left has no recod of antisemitism
The left parties in Britain were formed by, among others, Jews who had fled the pogroms of Europe - the left of Europe Included revolutionary Jews like Trotsky - Lenin (and Stalin) condemned antisemitism as "evil"
On teh other hand - rightist, German Indusrtial Capitalism financed a regime that sent six million Jews to their deaths - antisemism is a rightist philosophy - one of your political group's pet projects.
Answer the points or you ahve no case

Ye gods, that explains everything. Chilean Chardonnay is so passé. Teenybopper booze. Buttery, cloying juice. The fact that it's oaked (usually achieved by dangling oak staves or wood chips in it, not by oak-ageing in barrels) betrays its lack of balance in the first place. Next time try a nice, crisp, minerally Falanghina del Beneventano from Campania. No oak required. That'll wash away the horrid taste of that Chardonnay and sweeten your mood.

Nah, I'm enjoying sipping a delightful little Chardonnay from Chile's Casablanca Valley. It is resplendent of grapefruit and lemon with a hint of tropical pineapple and just a faint touch of oak. It married quite nicely with my supper of peppered, grilled Atlantic salmon with a side of blanched rapini sauteed in extra virgin olive oil from Lebanon with homegrown organic garlic and chili flakes accompanied by a salad of butter/Boston/bibb lettuce with a homemade vinaigrette of extra virgin olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, homegrown organic garlic, a soupçon of anchovy paste and a few macerated capers from the Middle east.

""It is not believable that they are all lying about it."

Can you describe the nature of this antisemitism Keith and who is involved?
POINT THE POINT - WHY HAVEN'T THE VICTIMS COME FORWARD AND DESCRIBED WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THEM?,   
You didnt link to the Independent article,
John MacDonnell is a wannabe Labour Leader who wishes Corbyn to be removed so he can lead the party.
The article makes th point that there is no specific evidence to show that there is a problem of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party
""Jeremy believes he is completely non-discriminatory. He would never be hostile to someone in the street. But he is, if you like, anti-Semitic along the institutionalised lines of the Metropolitan police in the 1990s, when they messed up the Stephen Lawrence ……
A Labour Party spokesman directed The Independent to a tweet, which read: "Sunday times attack story from a source from another political party who never worked for Labour. Not serious."
He did not give a concrete example that Mr Corbyn was anti-Semitic. But instead he stressed that was the perception of Mr Corbyn and the party, and Mr Fletcher criticised his reaction to those reports."

Do this as long as you want - until you bring specified charges they are no more than accusations by interested politicians.
No evidence, no case
Now - why didn't the Jewish members go public - why the Jewish Members of aprliament - after a year, we still have no idea what this antisemitism is - why?

Anyway, bugger all that ordure. We took me mum for a drive round a bit of the Yorkshire Dales today. We started off with a spot of lunch at the Lister Arms in Malham. Very nice too. Then we drove up to Malham Tarn taking in the view of Malham Cove, then back to the road to Arncliffe. Beautiful village. As Mother hadn't yet run out of energy (she's 88 and very infirm), we drove up Littondale to the top end, just short of Halton Gill, then left over the top road past Penyghent back down to Stainforth and Settle then home. Very leisurely was my pace. Would've loved to get out and walk to the cove, and/or to Gordale Scar and Janet's Foss, but today was all about giving Mother a nice ride out. The air was clear, the scenery was gorgeous and it was just a pity that the sun went in during the afternoon. Damned fine day. Go, Jezza!

Don't you worry, boobs, I can read all right, and my memory lets me down less often than yours does for you. When Keith made his rather vacuous comment about our being taught a lesson via Ward, you responded, in full support of Keith, by suggesting that it would be like teaching pigs to fly. Well let me just remind you of something, fellah. A few months ago you were pretending that you had to have a second identity as an anonymous guest in order that name-calling would be avoided, that we would be forced to address the issue, not attack the man. So what's happened? We're now equated with pigs, now that you're feeling bitter that you've been deprived of your dishonest anonymity and that your cover was blown (and don't lie again, please - I have chapter and verse from the mods that that's exactly what you did). Nice. Precisely what the Islamophobes do to Muslims. Compare them with pigs. Where did you learn that from I wonder? And what happened to addressing the issue, not attacking the man? And Keith, if you're reading this through your blue-tinted specs, let me ask you once again. No evasion this time. Do you support bobad's response to your post or not? If you evade the question again, well we know exactly where you stand, don't we?

Indy, 5 days ago,
"Jeremy Corbyn did little to counter reports of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party and got "angry" when his team told him he needed to improve relations with the Jewish community, a former adviser has claimed.
Harry Fletcher told told The Sunday Times that the Labour leader was "uneasy" about being interviewed by the Jewish Chronicle and "did not understand" why he needed to be completely transparent about his past dealings with Hamas and Hezbollah.

Mr Fletcher served leader's communications and strategy adviser and was part of Mr Corbyn's four-strong leadership campaign team in the summer of 2015."

""What angered me most was their inability to understand why they're perceived as anti-Semitic," wrote Mr Fletcher, who worked alongside Mr Corbyn, his son, Sebastien, and now shadow Chancellor John McDonnell."

That's what I said Keith - he did it on behalf of Britain because there is no longer an accepted definition of the term

Now there is.

which is not antisemitism, by any accepted definition

All our mainstream parties are in agreement that his comments were anti-Semitic, as are yours.

The Israeli Justice minister bacame an antisemite when she declared all criticism to be anti-Semitic

No-one has declared any such nonsense.

You have never specified or quantified wat the "serious" antisemitism is in the Labour Party and until somebody does, it doesn't exist other than as an accusation.

It is not believable that they are all lying about it.

Your antisemitic claim that the Parliamentary Jewish members kept silent for the sake of the party still stands.

It never stood because I never claimed it.

If you did not mean this - why have they not made public all this "serious antisemitism" you are claiming

They have. They made their complaints about the party to the leadership, as did those complaining of homophobia and misogyny.

If you don't tall people what a "criminal" has done, he has done nothing illegal.

I disagree. Lots of criminals are never identified.

Your additional post confirms that the "antisemitism" being claimed is largely criticiam of Israeli policy - which is not antisemitism, by any accepted definition.

You have never specified or quantified wat the "serious" antisemitism is in the Labour Party and until somebody does, it doesn't exist other than as an accusation.
Yo refuse to tell us why the Jewish members of parliament didn't go to the press, or why the Israelis themselves haven't brought specific chargesagainst Labout (they have no "love of the Party")

Common sense and simple justice - in my world anyway
"You defend Ward."
No I don't - I don't know anythiung about Ward
Nothing he was accused of was antisemitic - it is not antisemitic to accuse Israel of crimes and Israel makes the the Jewish people resposible for its own actions
They can't have a denition which says that is antisemitic and make such an accusation.
You are not fir to belong to any Party other than the BNP or the neow moribund Ukip
Do not accuse me of

I think it is possibly a mistake to contrast the way Labour and LibDem dealt with similar issues of a comment by a member. You have to add a healthy dose of cynicism: we are in an election period now and LibDem do not want that to be a story - they are well aware of the distraction that "gay sex" row is having on their party and they have no wish to start another hare running. The action may well have far morw to do with campaign management than the rights and wrongs of the case.

There is a lesson for Steve, Jim and the Labour Party in the David Ward story.

He has been deemed as "unfit to represent" the Lib Dem Party because,
"In 2013, Ward was criticised for accusing "the Jews" in Israel of "inflicting atrocities on Palestinians... on a daily basis".

Farron has said Ward's comments have been "deeply offensive, wrong and antisemitic"."

And,
"In 2013, Mr Ward posted a tweet calling Israel an "apartheid state" and saying that "Zionists" were "losing the battle".
Mr Ward refused to apologise at the time and had the party whip withdrawn. "

To tell such lies in the absence of any evidence and in the teeth of all the evidence to the contrary suggests a racial motive.

No informed intelligent person believes all that lying propaganda.
No decent democracy accuses Israel of those things.
Disseminating such lies makes you unfit to be a member of a decent democratic party.

It is time for you two to question your beliefs, and the motivation of your political mentors in feeding you such lies over the years.

Dandelion wine is very good. Haven't made it for years but I always used half a pint of grape juice concentrate and a couple of pounds of sugar. You don't have to get rid of all the green bits but definitely no stalks. Give the flowers a good bit of agitation before maceratiing in order to expel the beetle larvae! It doesn't make you pee the bed.

Dandelions reproduce sexually (flowers, pollen, seeds, etc.) but they do it all by themselves without meiotic cell division, so we end up with hundreds of microspecies in which the individuals are genetically identical instead of one big species with lots of genetic variation. It's called apomixis. Brambles do it too. A similar thing happens with aphids and with workers in some species of social insects. Pesky greenfly and worker wasps are good examples.

"Can you believe it?"
Can you believe it
The Israeli Government facilitated the massacre of up to 3,500 unarmed refugees, found themselves not guilty but indicted an Israeli General as being responsible for allowing it to take place, then, as a punishment, they elected him Prime Minister.

Can you believe it? Soldiers stopped two Arab nurses who are cancer patients coming into Israel from Gaza for treatment and insisted on searching their possessions...

oh wait...

Today's news brief: "Forces find explosives among the medical equipment of two Arab nurses allowed into Israel for cancer treatment."

"They reported their complaints about anti-Semitism to the Party leadership to deal with, as did those complaining of homophobia and misogyny."
Not what I asked Keith - I asked why they didn't go public
Why didn't they - there was nothing stopping them
You are lying when you deny having said what you said
You've denied it before and I've put it up twice
Why bother putting it up yet again - you'll only ask for proof as if hadn't already done it
I'm really to old to be coping with childishly dishonest behaviour like yours
You want it again - I'll put it up next to your "implant to rape" evidence
Enough really is enough with your dishonesty

There were no objections but yours as far as I can see, Keith, but I am aware of what is currently happening in your life so we shall leave it there until you are fully recovered.

Dave,
I do not expect anyone to and I never objected to being offended.
Why bring it up then?


Because of all the actual objections to your behaviour.

I do object to your always and only criticising Christianity and never any other faith.
I did not criticise anything. I linked an article and did not even complete a joke.


yes. Criticise was the wrong word.
I should have said, "I do object to your always and only mocking and ridiculing Christians and never any other faith."

I do object to your claiming it is my fault that you do it.
Your fault that I do what? Your paranoia is showing


No. You claimed you did not attack other faiths because of my "agenda."

I do object to being singled out by name as someone likely to be offended by what you were about to post.
Where did I do that?


You identified me by name on Good Friday as one to whom it is a special day, and then posted your mocking attacks.

Jim, you can not quote me because you were lying.
It is also a lie about any "PACT OF SILENCE."
If it was not a lie then quote me.
They were not silent.
They reported their complaints about anti-Semitism to the Party leadership to deal with, as did those complaining of homophobia and misogyny.
No "pact of silence." You made that up.

I am away now.
Enjoy.

"Well known Mudcat liar Jim,"
Didn't you just claim you don't go in for personal insults
Seems like it's Well known Mudcat liar Keith
"Why don't you quote them then Jim?"
How can you quote a majority Keith - they have vor=ted him into office twice.
You can quote who you like but until you produce solid evidence of antisemitism it remains an unsubstantiated quote from someone who either sees Corbyn as a liability or from those who have been been prompted by Israel to get rid of the leader who threatens to introduce BDS
If you can't produce actual evidence, the rest is agenda-driven rhetoric
I ASKED WHY THE JEWISH MPS DIDN'T GO PUBLIC WITH THEIR ACCUSATIONS - YOU REFUSE TO ANSWER, SO YOUR ORIGINAL ONE - THAT THEY HAVE ENTERED INTO A PACT OF SILENCE FOR THE GOOD OF THE PARTY STANDS
"If that is not just another Jim lie, quote me."
Are you actually denying that you refuse to respond to a Jewish writer because he has nothing worth saying on British antisemitism(sic)?
At least give this statement a little gap before you start denying having made it
"Thanks for the link Jim - agrees with me that 5.19 million Palestinians
were NOT driven from their homes in 1948."
Who on earth said they were - I gave you the number of refugees - that is the current number
"According to the United Nations there were 5,149,742 Palestinian refugees driven out of their rightful home - ethnic cleansing on a massive scale"
You really need to get whoever reads these things for you to be more accurate
Piss off, you arrogantly stupid little man
What a pair of ludicrous tossers.

Keith

I do not expect anyone to and I never objected to being offended.
Why bring it up then?

I do object to you carelessly and gratuitously causing offence on this forum. It had nothing to do with anything being discussed.
Take that up with the moderation team

I do object to your always and only criticising Christianity and never any other faith.
I did not criticise anything. I linked an article and did not even complete a joke. When I do criticise religion you will note that I always refer to any branch of fantasy.

I do object to your claiming it is my fault that you do it.
Your fault that I do what? Your paranoia is showing

I do object to being singled out by name as someone likely to be offended by what you were about to post.

Well known Mudcat liar Jim,


By declarinbg publicly that Jews have no opinion regarding antisemitism you aare a declarede anti-Semite


If that is not just another Jim lie, quote me declaring it.

It is your mate who is describing a Jewish statement on The Labour Party as 'irrelevant'

If that is not just another Jim lie, quote me.

I did say that Labour insiders are more likely to know what is going on than people who do not even live in this country and have no connection with the British Labour Party.
I did not specify Jews.

Jim,
The majority of the Labour party supports Corbyn

Why don't you quote them then Jim?
Because they are people like Steve who have no knowledge and who no-one has ever heard of.

I quote McDonnell the Shadow Chancellor and Corbyn's closest ally, Abbott who is very close to Corbyn, Watson the Deputy Leader, and prominent people like Khan and Thornberry on Labour Party matters.

Who knows more about what is going on inside Labour?
Not you and Steve!!

Nobody is attempting to ethnically cleanse Cyprus

Many of Greek Christian heritage were forced off their land.
You have never criticised Turkey over their illegal occupation on here, or called for a boycott.

Dave,

The link I provided may well have offended your sensibilities. To be honest, I could not give a toss.

Thanks for the link Jim - agrees with me that 5.19 million Palestinians were NOT driven from their homes in 1948.

Tell me Jim why did the Egyptians invade, occupy and steal Palestinian land in 1948 and then shut Palestinians up in refugee camps on what had been Palestinian land?

Tell me Jim why did the Jordanians do exactly the same thing to Palestinians in the West Bank?

I take it that you do acknowledge that in April 1948 both Gaza and the West Bank were part of the mandated territory of Palestine don't you? So how did they come to be under Egyptian and Jordanian control from 1948 until 1967?

Unprecedented!!!! Utterly unbelievable more like Jim as the non-Jewish population of the Mandate of Palestine in 1948 was only around 1.358 million, care to explain how 5.15 million could have been driven out of their homes? Were they attached by bungie cords and kept springing back?

Who does here and will you provide an example of our doing so?
As you don't go in for that sort of thing I don't expect a reply
It is your mate who is describing a Jewish statement on The Labour Party as 'irrelevant'
Is that not "antisemitic" - if not, why?
Don't expect a response to that one either
