Don’t let the door hit you, were the good Lord split you
One happy ending to the nonsense that passes for normal in elitist Leftist politics. KGS
A Liberal Democrat frontbencher was sacked today after calling for an inquiry into allegations that Israeli soldiers in Haiti had been involved with organ-trafficking.
Party leader Nick Clegg removed Baroness Tonge as a LibDem health spokeswoman in the House of Lords, describing her remarks as ‘wrong, distasteful and provocative’.
It is the second time she has been fired for making controversial comments about Israel.
The latest row followed accusations in the online Palestine Telegraph – of which Lady Tonge is a patron – that members of the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) had been harvesting body parts in the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake.
She subsequently told the Jewish Chronicle: ‘To prevent allegations such as these – which have already been posted on YouTube – going any further, the IDF and the Israeli Medical Association should establish an independent inquiry immediately to clear the names of the team in Haiti.’
[…] CLEGG: ‘The comments were wrong, distasteful and provocative and I recognise the deep and understandable distress they have caused to the Jewish community.
‘While I do not believe that Jenny Tonge is anti-semitic or racist, I regard her comments as wholly unacceptable. Jenny Tonge apologises unreservedly for the offence she has caused.’
