Mend mad­ness

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

Jeremy Cor­byn’s pres­ence at last week’s Mend meet­ing is the most sig­nif­i­cant — and wor­ry­ing — event of his lead­er­ship. It shows that he has not changed since his days as a back­bencher, when he wel­comed a va­ri­ety of un­savoury char­ac­ters to the Com­mons and gave suc­cour to the more dan­ger­ous el­e­ments in so­ci­ety. Mend is a ma­lign or­gan­i­sa­tion which ex­ists to un­der­mine West­ern democ­racy. All those who at­tended last week’s meet­ing — in­clud­ing the Met’s head of com­mu­nity re­la­tions — should feel shame for pulling the rug from un­der­neath mod­er­ate Mus­lims who are fight­ing to counter the in­flu­ence of the likes of Mend. And what a chill­ing mes­sage it sends about a fu­ture Cor­byn gov­ern­ment.
