Judge a man by the company he keeps – in this case judge Jeremy Corbyn by his association with these two – as mentioned in this previous post.

Others have already written extensively about these characters, but they have not made the link to Corbyn, who has shared platforms with them. Read the rest of this entry »

Jeremy Corbyn at PRC Event

There has been a focus on Jeremy Corbyn’s links to the group Interpal – see here – but I can reveal his close association with another group that could give nightmares to the UK security chiefs required to brief him; The PRC.

The Palestine Return Centre was exposed earlier this year in a Sunday Telegraph investigation into a cluster of extremist groups in a building in North London. Of the PRC, they said: Read the rest of this entry »

“Jawad’s case is, I believe, a miscarriage of justice”

A miscarriage of justice; that’s how Jeremy Corbyn described the conviction of Jawad Botmeh, sentenced to 20 years in prison for terrorist offences, in a letter to Botmeh’s employer.

There is a chasm of difference between ‘miscarriage of justice’ and failing to get off on a technicality. That difference seems lost on Corbyn.

Botmeh’s conviction is discussed in a lot more detail in an earlier post – click here – but here are a few salient details: Read the rest of this entry »

Britain’s 2015 election saw a new campaign trick, imported from America and benefitting the Labour Party.

bbc-1728x800_cGiven the interest in the BBC Trust’s recent upholding of my complaint – see here – I am sharing the documentation for the previous stages of the complaints process.

Here’s a short outline of the different stages you go through; I’ve broken it up into rounds (the BBC term for each stage is in brackets).

If you click on the heading it will take you to the relevant post, with attached documents:

BBC Trust Ruling on Kevin Connolly

26 03 2014

Category; Middle East, Media

 

imagesThe BBC Trust has released its ruling on my complaint about a Radio 4 Today Programme report. As already noted the ruling confirms the report was inaccurate and misleading. See page 4 and pages 9 -23.

 

It is not clear what the BBC will do to ‘remedy’ the breach, nor what Kevin Connolly thinks about it all. His colleague Jeremy Bowen has rejected the last BBC Trust decision against him. It is difficult to see how Connolly can square spending almost three years defending what he considers to have been sterling work to be told by his regulator that it is in fact rotten journalism.
