Peter writes, “The IHRA Definition of anti-Semitism has been adopted in the UK by the Government, by major political parties (Tories, Labour, Lib Dems, SNP), by the big trade unions (GMB, Unison, Unite, USDAW), by 30% of local authorities, the police, schools and colleges (through Gov advice) and other civic bodies. At least 10 million UK citizens (politicians, union/party members or academic/civic employees) now face disciplinary action (expulsion or dismissal) from these bodies as ant-Semites if they say Israel is a racist endeavour, or that it exaggerates the holocaust, etc. [See the full definition at http://www.tinyurl.com/ihradef ] At least two people have lost their local authority jobs and now fight through Employment Tribunals for justice. Pete Gregson is the first trade unionist to be expelled from his trade union, the GMB. He (along with hundreds of others) is under investigation by the Labour Party for anti-Semitism; recently he was suspended. This video explains what it’s all about – and how Israel has rewritten so many rule-books – and now effectively controls UK politics.“
