Quote of the day 23rd June 2021

"What we're seeing in Batley & Spen is literally incredible. Labour's own candidate is facing homophobic attacks. Labour's own leader and his family are facing anti-Semitic attacks. But no-one will respond. For fear of upsetting a section of Labour's own base."

Dan Hodges on Twitter yesterday. Anyone wondering what he is referring to can find a report on the Guide Fawkes site here.

Anti-Semitism is wrong whoever it comes from and whoever it is directed against.

So is homophobia.

Neither of these things should need saying. But apparently they do.
