No evidence of “institutional antisemitism” in Labour Club

first_imgBaroness Royall’s Inquiry into the alleged antisemitism in the Oxford University Labour Club (OULC) has found no evidence of “institutional antisemitism” in the Club. A set of recommendations meant to have “a positive impact, not only on OULC, but on Labour clubs and the Labour Party more generally,” was also produced.Controversially, however, the details of alleged individuals incidents of antimsemitism in OULC have been withheld from publication in the report. The full details of the investigation into the individual instances of antisemitism are expected to be published in the coming months as part of the Chakrabarti report.Reports that the full content of Royall’s report was supressed by Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) are as yet unconfirmed.In the report’s executive summary, Royall notes that there are certain cultural problems at OULC which “must be addressed to ensure a safe space for all Labour students to debate and campaign.”According to Baroness Royall, an effective response to these cultural problems would involve training sessions being organised to enable officers of Labour Clubs to fight against antisemitism within their circle. The report also encourages OULC to establish a clear system of reporting for incidents of antisemitism and racism more generally.Royall adds that this system of reporting should include the ability to make an appeal directly to the Labour Party NEC.The exclusion of students and other supporters from membership of the Party as punishment for being found guilty of antisemitism is, however, not perceived as an appropriate measure by the report.OULC gave its answer to the reports this afternoon, qualifying antisemitism as “abhorrent, repugnant and contrary to the values we as a Club hold dear.” The new co-chairs of the club welcome Baroness Royall’s recommendations and say they “look forward to collaborating with her and the national Labour Party in moving forward from these events.”The statement from the OULC co-Chairs continues, “We will enthusiastically work with all national Labour Party officers to deal with all the complaints made against the Club. We will move to affiliate to the Jewish Labour Movement as a gesture of our solidarity with Jewish people and vigorously support the 8-point plan to eradicate anti-Semitism within the Labour Party.”The reports presented to the NEC stated that considering antisemitism in OULC inevitably leads to the same considerations regarding the entire Party, which has recently struggled with allegations of antisemitism against prominent members. “No form of antisemitism or racism is acceptable, including being used as a factional political tool,” Baroness Royall concludes in the executive summary.The resignation of Alex Chalmers as OULC co-Chair in February brought anti-semitism in the Labour Party to light.Concerns about anti-semitism within the Club were initially raised following the resignation ofOULC former co-chair Alex Chalmers, who claimed that many members and Oxford students in general had “some kind of problem with Jews”.last_img read more

Lily May wins Wales title by four

first_img5 May 2019 Lily May wins Wales title by four Tags: elite golf, England squads, Wales Golf England’s Lily May Humphreys added another top title to her collection today with a four shot victory in the Welsh women’s open stroke play championship at Royal St David’s.The 17-year-old international was 10-under for the 54-hole event, finishing four shots clear of her England team-mate, Bel Wardle.She adds this to previous wins in English, Scottish, British, European and American championships which have taken her to the top of the amateur game. Next, she’s off to Ireland to challenge for that open title.Humphreys, from Stoke by Nayland in Essex, said of her latest success: “I was very pleased, I really wanted to win this because I have good memories of playing the course in my first R&A event three years ago. I’ve started hitting some good form and it was nice to combine it all.”Back in 2016, aged 14, she played her first British girls’ championship – aiming simply for experience. She made the cut and went on to reach the quarter finals, and returned the following year to win!This weekend, playing in breezy conditions with gusts of around 25mph, she aimed to play steadily over the tricky, opening six holes and then make her score.Bel Wardle (Prestbury, Cheshire) set the first round pace with her seven-under 66, but Humphreys became the 36-hole leader at six-under, with a pair of 70s. In the final round, both players completed the event with 69s.“I tried not to think about the lead, but just to keep on as I had been playing,” said Humphreys. “I wanted to make my pars and give myself birdie opportunities on the par fives. That was what I was focussing on and the strategy worked.”Four other English players figured in the top 10, with Charlotte Heath (Huddersfield, Yorkshire) taking fourth place; Cara Gainer (Castle Royle, Berkshire) in seventh; and Emily Brennan (Trentham, Staffordshire) and Georgina Blackman (Chelmsford, Essex), sharing 10th.Click here for full scoresImage courtesy James Eades/Wales Golflast_img read more

Memorial days

first_imgHey, I am age 58 with serious back and spinal problems. I receive steroid injections every three months (which is the maximum allowable dosage). My health care package cannot even remotely approach the health care that Dwight had. I often wonder, that being the case, is there a day coming sooner than later that I will enter the “hospice” reasonably healthy only to be carried out of the back door by the undertaker’s assistant and loaded into the hearse?The family of Dwight White does not appear to have been bamboozled either. According to a Feb. 2, 2010 Huffington Post article; “The family of former Pittsburgh Steeler Dwight White [filed a lawsuit against] the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and three doctors, claiming negligence contributed to his death. [According to Allegheny County court records] one of White’s doctors was out of town and another prescribed an over-the-counter medication when he weakened after being discharged from back surgery in May 2008. White’s wife took him to an emergency room when his condition worsened. A blood clot was diagnosed in his lung, and he died June 6, 2008, at UPMC Presbyterian hospital. White family attorney Art Schwarzwaelder [said]; “the athlete’s doctors missed chances to save his life.”Can you imagine how many lives of the poor and disenfranchised have been lost because a doctor refused to cancel a golfing date? I am afraid, really afraid that the premature mortality of I, and many others like me, is just a foregone conclusion. Does poverty almost equal certain death when seeking treatment in the hospitals of America? If it happened to Dwight White, well you get the picture.In May of 2008 a young man named Justin Jackson was shot and killed after he shot a K-9 police dog. According to police and eyewitness accounts, Jackson’s parents said their son was walking along Arlington Avenue near South 18th Street, in the Mount Oliver section adjacent to Pittsburgh when a police dog came after him. He fired at the dog and police shot at him, hitting him in the head. He died at the scene. Could I be in error or am I missing something? I was and continue to be under the impression that one can only be charged, tried, convicted sentenced and put to death after killing a human being, a human being! I am holding my own private vigil and march for peace for Dwight White and Justin Jackson. Why aren’t any parades being held for them?What about Flo Jo; young beautiful, super fine Flo Jo? On September 21, 1998, Florence Griffith-Joyner died in her sleep at the age of 38. The unexpected death was investigated by the sheriff-coroner’s office, which announced on Oct. 22 (over a month later) that the cause of death was suffocation during a severe epileptic seizure.Where is all of this great health care that the Tea Party has been raving about?Millions of young American men from WWI to Afghanistan, Libya and wherever the bell of freedom has tolled, have been naïve and misguided just like the rest of us when it comes to the reasoning of war and social injustice. The beaches and gutters of the streets of Europe ran with the blood of those fighting to sanctify and maintain the ideals of freedom, all the while on the home front American citizens have been placed in and continue to be confined to social and economic dungeons hidden far away from the light of prosperity.I cannot remove the images of some of the late great ones out of my head. My recollections and the information that I have regarding the past has morphed into pure torture. But there can be no honor without memories. All of the athletes and individuals that I now name have gone on to join the ancestors. Jack Johnson, Joe Louis, Roberto Clemente, Jackie Robinson, Ernie Holmes, Florence Griffith Joyner, Arthur Ashe, Eugene “Big Daddy” Lipscomb, Steve Courson, Mike Webster, Joe Gilliam, Steve McNair, Chris Henry, Darrent Williams, Sean Taylor, Charles “Chuck” Tanner, Thomas Herrion, Reggie Lewis, Ernie Davis, Walter Payton, Hank Gathers, Len Bias. I know I missed many and for that I apologize but those who were not mentioned above will still be honored daily in our hearts, because memorial day is really memorial days.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at [email protected]­pittsburghcourier.com or 412-583-6741.) Hey guys and dolls you have to hang in there with me as far as this “piece of work” goes because this past memorial day, I was a piece of work. I need all of you who read these words to be my therapist this week. If I appear to be discombobulated as I vent then please consider this; looks are not deceiving. This is not a column about sports, but a reflection of life with sports being interwoven as part of the fabric. I woke up Sunday morning and my heart was extremely heavy as I thought about former Steelers defensive end Dwight White. How in the hell could anyone go to the hospital for a simple back ailment, have an operation, be cleared to go home; go home and then be readmitted for complications and then freakin’ die at age 58?last_img read more
