Erm… I have to point that it’s the Conservative Party (who coincidentally have no antisemitism policy for it’s members at all) who are in Govt in the UK - not Labour.

The list of alleged postings of anti-semitic threats online was compiled by Labour Party staff - as well as Party members encouraging others in general to report any anti-semitic posts they saw to the police.
 

Though am I missing something between this and the thwarted far-right march in Liverpool today?

No, he’s just trying–and failing–to say that the leftwing is more anti-Semetic than the rightwing.

Wrong, mfm. No comparison was made. It was just another example of the U.K. having low tolerance for neo-Nazis. oojason’s post is too much like a political argument, so I’ll leave it alone.

My sister called me last night just to check if I was alive (I moved in Strasbourg a month ago), but I didn’t understand why at first. Then I read the news… As the killer was in my neighbourdhood, we all had to stay home. Not to mention the people in bars and restaurants who were allowed to go home at 2:00 AM! Who knows where the creep is now, but I don’t think I’m gonna meet him on my way to work (that is, in a few minutes) 😉

I felt sick when I heard about this. I know people will begin blaming each other, but I really feel the only appropriate response to this is love and understanding, not more hate.
