Why I vote Labour

SOME of us are in the Labour Party because we see it as a better bet for the overall safety and prospects of the Jewish community in Britain by being a better guarantee of general prosperity and fairness.

There is more to British politics than controversies about Israel.

They do not directly affect social stability at large as much as the (mis)management of utilities and benefits and the higher rate of total taxation on the poorest tenths compared to the richest tenths.

The present imbalances recruit street hate and those political zombies and neo-fascists.

There are anti-Israel cases in the Conservative — and barely Unionist — Party. I challenge its Jewish members to leave if one of their vague characters were to become leader.
