It was a momentous victory for the Conservative Party in the United Kingdom’s General Election. The party has promised to honor the people’s vote in a referendum to leave the European Union - The Prison House of Nations.
Meanwhile, praying Christians were delighted that the anti-Semitic Labor Party, the nation’s second largest, had its worst election result since the 1930s.The Conservatives won by a landslide, with 365 seats to Labor’s 203, and have a majority of 80 over all opposition parties combined.
Even London’s Muslim Labor Mayor, Sadiq Khan, blamed Labor’s “catastrophic” defeat on Mr Corbyn and the “repeated failure to tackle anti-Semitism.”
His comments were echoed by Jewish Labor MP Dame Margaret Hodge, who accused Mr Corbyn of allowing Labor to descend into the “nasty party” under his watch and added: "People didn't trust us with the national security of the nation.
People didn't trust Mr Corbyn with looking after them,” she added. "Labor (Labour in the UK) has become the nasty party. I am one of the victims of that with the anti-Semitism." In fact Jewish MPS and party members have been booed, heckled and deluged with hate mail, all by members of their own party which claims to be “anti racist.”!
Their leader. Jeremy Corbyn, has a long, well documental record of anti semitism as has his right-hand-man, Seamus Milne.
This was part an opinion column in Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper, the nation’s best. “ A vote for Labour on December 12 is a vote for an institutionally anti-Semitic party led by an anti-Semite.
“This has been the view of many of us for a long time, but there is no room left for doubt after the leak of the Jewish Labour Movement's submission to an investigation by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).
“The document provides a catalogue of bigotry in Labour, of which the following are just a few examples. Verbal abuse: one witness recalls being called “a Tory Jew”, being told that “Hitler was right” and threatened with physical violence.
“Online abuse: Ruth Smeeth MP was the subject of over 25,000 anti-Semitic posts, including epithets such as “traitor” and “CIA/MI5/Mossad informant”.
Exclusion of Jewish members from party activity: it is claimed that when 25 ultra-Orthodox Jews tried to join the party in South Tottenham, the constituency’s membership secretary objected and required a visit to their homes.
The JLM concludes that Labour “is no longer a safe space for Jewish people” – and that the problem starts at the top.”
Separately the Chief Rabbi, who had previously declared Mr Corbyn unfit for high office, warned that even with him gone the resurgence of anti-Semitism remained a serious concern for Britain’s Jewish community.
This is how Stephen Pollard, editor of the UK’s Jewish Chronicle, put it: Ever since Labour’s strong showing in the 2017 election, the Jewish community has lived in fear of a Labour government. We have been so anxious about the prospect that 47 per cent of us have seriously considered emigrating.
“At 10pm on Thursday, (election day as voting polls started to come in,) that fear vanished. Then something hit me that had never occurred to me before. Labor hadn’t just caused anxiety across the Jewish community. It had done something even more appallingly profound. It had made my family and my community doubt the decency and sense of our fellow Brits.
“With hindsight, of course, the British people were obviously going to tell the extremists where to go. That is what we have always done and will always do. But such was the onslaught from the Corbynites that most Jews feared otherwise.
“The past two days have been a blur of conversations, texts and emails from friends and relatives, ecstatic that the threat has gone. I share their joy.
“But I also advise caution. Because while the current Labor leadership has been humiliated, the poison they released has not gone away. Far from it. Jeremy Corbyn and his allies turned Labor into a party so foul that the Equalities and Human Rights Commission decided it had to investigate its institutional racism.
“But the Corbynites could only behave as they did because so many Labor members are either antisemitic or don't give a damn about it. Those members remain – and will chose the next Labor leader.”
It is a disgrace that many millions of British people still voted for this disgrace of a political party. There are lessons here for the USA where similar elements are vocal in The Democratic Party. Be warned.
Several world leaders reacted to Johnson's electoral landslide.
US President Donald Trump was among the first, writing on Twitter: "Congratulations to Boris Johnson on his great WIN! Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new Trade Deal after BREXIT. This deal has the potential to be far bigger and more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the E.U. Celebrate Boris!"
"Israeli foreign minister, Israel Katz, said Johnson's win was a "victory of values" over anti-Semitism, referring to allegations of anti-Jewish racism in the Labor Party.
So one danger to the nation is averted, at least in part. But the spectre of the European Union still hangs over the United Kingdom. Prime Minister Boris Johnson promises we will be out of the EU by January 31.
