In the history of political slogans, there cannot be another more contradictory than UKIP's catchy new phrase, purloined with extraordinary naivety from the British National Party. 'Love Britain, Vote UKIP.'

The 'Quenelle' Salute Is Not Anti-Authority, It's Anti-Semitic

Steve Rose | Posted 30.03.2014 | UK Politics
Steve Rose

If you believe Nicolas Anelka, his use of the 'quenelle' was a conscious and deliberate "up yours" to the French establishment in support of friend Dieudonné M'Bala M'Bala. But, for many in this country, the 'quenelle' was almost unheard of, and many still argue that it is an apolitical rejection of the state and Zionism. However, it is a ghastly reminder of modern anti-Semitism.

Victory for Ukip Is Meaningless for Europe

Ben Acheson

Farage himself predicted an "earthquake" while other prominent right wingers envisage "the liberation from the European elite, the monster in Brussels". So are they correct? Their success would certainly send a shockwave across the continent but are we really about to find ourselves at the mercy of the most anti-EU, combatively euro-sceptic European Parliament to date? No.

I Am a Yid Not a Y** Word

You can judge for yourselves where the racism and hate speech is coming from. Calling someone a "Yido" is a bit different to singing songs about the holocaust and gas chambers. It is not us who should be getting the finger pointed at it is the other clubs and the evidence is there.

Was Anti-Semitism Lurking Behind the 'Daily Mail's Attack on Ralph Miliband?

Jonathan Romain | Posted 03.12.2013 | UK
Jonathan Romain

The Daily Mail's attack on Ralph Miliband is so preposterous that there must be a hidden motive behind it. But what? One is that it is based on anti-semitism. That would put the Mail in the same category as Hitler who defined a Jew as anyone with one Jewish grandparent - nothing to do with faith and purely according to their birth.

A Jewish Perspective on the Y-Word Debate

Ally Livingston | Posted 25.11.2013 | UK Sport
Ally Livingston

The Y-word debate is once more encompassing the footballing community. To opponents of its usage, it is an abhorrent term that never should have found its way into match-day vocabulary. Contrastingly, advocates of the term contend that language is understood in context, not just one word. As such, chanting 'yid army' does not equate to condoning anti-Semitism.
