I was clearing out my garden shed, something I do every 20 years or so, whether it needs clearing or not. I was about to throw out an old door key, the door long since consigned to the rubbish tip, when I saw the name — Corbin. Yes, my key bore the name, in sound if not spelling, of the leader of the British Labour party and candidate for prime minister.
We in Israel have watched in horror as the British Labour party under Jeremy Corbyn has a real chance of winning the upcoming election.
If you have not byn following this saga, I can only ask where have you byn? Many among the British public are determined to vote for an anti-Semitic party whose policies belong in the dustbyn.
It is no coincidence that many leading British Jews have seen fit to bename the Labour party leader as a life-long anti-Semite. As you might know, the past tense of the rather archaic verb, bename, is bynempt.
Recently Jews have come under attack, physically. Just last week, a rabbi was left bleeding in the street in Stamford Hill, north London, With the smell of 1939 Germany already in the air, a Corbyn government will be a disaster for all. While I have tried to add a touch of humour to this blog, a Corbyn win will be no laughing matter.
By the time you read this blog, the results will be in. We will know if Britain is to rule the waves or sink below them. It is another coincidence that the currency of Belarus is almost worthless. The Belarusian ruble, the BYN, is worth just 0.4 Euros. Let us hope that, under Corbyn, the UK pound does not follow the BYN.
