    All you really need to know. A guy in the lib dems said anti semitic instults. Immediately suspended when found out.
    It is reported that they stood by him until the pressure became too great. There are also other reports of antisemitism within the Lib Dems party and still no mention that these complaints will be investigated.

    Out side of a miricle upturn of polotics that saw Labour displace the liberals nearly 100 years ago, that's pritty much the only way.
    There is no indication that the Lib Dems would push for the removal of FPTP or that it would be agreed to by either the Cons or Lab nor does there appear to be widespread support for electoral reform within the general public.

    And what about these: Here are the major instances where a Liberal Democrat candidate was accused of being antisemitic.

    antisemitism.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/5987-Party-Briefing-x1-LIBDEM-May-2019-v2.pdf

    David Ward "I would probably fire a rocket into Israel" still a LD councillor. He lost his seat to the Labour party earlier in the 2015 election.

    Baroness Tonge "the Israeli government is responsible for the hatred behind the mass shooting in Pittsburgh that claimed the lives of 11 people" resigned from the party after a decade of dithering on the part of the leadership.

    Wera Hobhouse "For what reason do we remember Holocaust?" still MP.

    Andrew Philips "have so demeaned themselves and behaved in a manner that is not just contrary to international law but contrary to
    simple morality and decency that I genuinely believe that they are now on a suicide path.” still LD Peer.

    Gordon Banks MP "what fascinates me is that Farron’s (then LD party leader) leadership campaign was organised and fundedby London Jews", left party to join conservatives.

    Jane Brophy MP "(told rival orthodox Jewish parliamentary candidate) should choose between faith and running for office", still an MP.

    Ashuk Ahmed, parliamentary candidate for Luton South was somehow selected for the 2017 general election, despite having already been questioned by the police for posting images on Facebook of Benjamin Netanyahu with blood pouring out of his mouth onto the bodies of children. His candidacy was only suspended when a Daily Mail campaign highlighted the issue. Current status within the party unknown.

    Chris Davies MEP, "the influence of the Jewish lobby that seems to have far too great a say over the political decision-making process in many countries”, re-elected MEP in 2019.

    In short in NO case did any instance of antisemitism result in a candidate being fired. Mostly complaints were ignored until the media intervened, then the candidate would be quietly reinstated.

    It should be obvious that Kallisto's party has the bigger issue with antisemitism than Labour, which has four times the membership. He's just using this as a stick to bash Labour with.
    Problem with some of those quotes is you have clipped them.

    Like:
    have so demeaned themselves and behaved in a manner that is not just contrary to international law but contrary to
    simple morality and decency that I genuinely believe that they are now on a suicide path

    Could be referring to anything as you clipped out what it's referring to.

    Most of them are anti-semetic

    But you also don't provide any links to the source so we're kinda going on your word on them.

    And as a soc account your word is worth less than mud and I generally don't care enough about what you think to look them up my self.

    But if your so concerned please do contact the Lib Dems and make a complaint, unlike Labour they might actualy do something about it.

    I explained exactly how ineffective the Lib Dems were in dealing with complaints.

    If only I'd put a link at the top of the article. Oh wait, I did, dogshit-for-brains.
    Then help them by making the complaints and going to the press. No resistance from us lib dem supporters, I more then welcome the party getting purged.

    Won't find me getting salty denying claims and calling people cunts online for calling out flaws in the party i support.

    All you have done, for all your efforts, all your soc accounts is show exactly what the typical labour supporter is, a salty, fanatical, hateful little closet racisist.

    Their whole strategy if they really wanted to remain is entirely wrong headed and doomed to achieve the main thing they wanted to prevent.

    But then we should expect little else from them based on their recent track record of duplicity.
    They just want another chance at a coalition with the tories(a.k.a give them everything they want if they stop breexit).

    but its good to see your alt-right colours fucking showing, leaves a little egg on the face of the communist and others who have been supporting you, probably teach them a lesson about supporting soc accounts, if a man not willing to stake his reputation on what hes says, then likely what he says is of no reputable worth.

    nice to know you support people who advocate for the freedom to be racist Gilrak or should i say @CommunismWillWin guess theres no low you pinkos wont stoop.

    Lol where did I support people like that? You really are reaching. I suppose those who follow right-wing idealogies, be it liberal or conservative, are no different. Can't help but make shit up because they can't think up anything better.
    And the freedom to be racist is way to wide. I'm against banning any words[by the government], but that sure as hell does not apply to racist actions that go beyond words[including threats].



    One group of liberals is saying i'm too extreme for thinking fascists deserve to be punched, and the other group now decides I support racists.. because?


    What a joke.

    Yes, people can say racist things in a free society.
    No its pritty obvious that we have laws against saying racisist things, in person or online or otherwise, so no you don't have free speech and people like you shouldn't have free speech to spread hate, and if you don't like it feel free to cry on 4chan with your other "free speech advocates", or move to America, trump sounds like more your kind of guy.

    Maybe you can take Gilrak errr CommunismWillWin with you and introduce them to your alt-right free to hate speech family.

    I'd be willing to bet Mr burner, your the one making those racisist threads from burner accounts too.

    I wouldn't be suprised though, not the first time a wolfs tried to hid a sheep's cloths.

    interests of national security
    territorial integrity or public safety
    prevention of disorder or crime
    protection of health or morals
    protection of the reputation or the rights of others
    preventing the disclosure of information received in confidence
    maintaining the authority and impartiality of the judiciary
    You may find it is not unconditional

    You may also find that it is meaningless to outlaw being a racist since thought crimes are impossible to prove (different issue) but restricting freedom of speech with those limitations in mind is possible

    Should be said the British almost dictated those

    Nice to know your alt right belifes came out in the end, the only upside is that with people like you championing them there's no fear of a labour majority.

    They follow EU guidance, in that speech should not impinge on other fundamental freedoms. 'Your freedom ends where mine begins'. When people start talking about defending freedom of speech, as well the far right endlessly love to; they usually forget that other fundamental freedoms exist, such as expression, religion, right to a fair trial, etc.

    Exactly that.

    Your freedoms end where others rights begin.

    And one of those rights is the right to self determination.

    That's why arguing that isreal dosnt have the right to exist crosses the line.
