It’s time to ditch the Y-word, Spurs
ONCE again, at Tottenham’s new ground on Tuesday, the word Yid was used liberally by a crowd of 60,000, the majority Gentile. The increased capacity means it is now heard more forcefully and powerfully than ever before. Any Jewish Tottenham supporter who does not see this as problematic might care to study the history book for which Jeremy Corbyn wrote a gushing foreword, without a second thought. Making Yid acceptable, in any context these days, is not helpful.
