British TV maths whiz abused by Labour anti-Semites

No-one is safe from the rising tide of anti-Semitism engulfing the left of British politics.

Rachel Riley is a host of the much-loved British words and maths quiz show, Countdown. An Oxford maths graduate and self-described ?non-religious Jew?, Riley is a popular celebrity. But even celebrity is no shield against the virulent Jew-hating of Jeremy Corbyn?s Labour. Quote:

Rachel Riley has admitted being shocked at abuse she received after speaking out about alleged anti-Semitism within the Labour Party.

The Countdown star, whose mother is Jewish but describes herself as an atheist, has criticised leader Jeremy Corbyn?s handling of the ongoing controversy?Rachel, 33, told ITV?s The Jonathan Ross Show that her speaking out was initially ?kind of accidental and snowballed exponentially?.

She said: ?I?m not political.

?I just noticed this creeping anti-Jewish stuff going into the press and coming into conversations with people and I thought it was weird.?

Rachel said people were saying to her: ?You?re being paid by someone, what?s your agenda? Who is making you say this? It?s a lie?

?You?re just trying to smear, it isn?t really happening.? End of quote.

Except that it is happening and it?s coming direct from the Labour leader?s own office. Quote:

Rachel Riley has instructed a high-profile lawyer to pursue claims against a member of Jeremy Corbyn’s staff who wrote that the Jewish Countdown presenter had claimed: ?Corbyn deserves to be violently attacked because he is a Nazi.? End of quote.

This is false, of course. Riley had responded to a tweet from Guardian journalist Owen Jones, about a neo-Nazi who isn?t Corbyn: I think sound life advice is, if you don?t want eggs thrown at you, don?t be a Nazi. Seems fair to me. Riley replied, ?good advice?. Jeremy Corbyn was mentioned nowhere, but as my mother always said, a guilty conscience needs no accusing.

A Corbyn?s staffer tweeted that, ?Today Jeremy Corbyn went to his local mosque for ‘visit my mosque day’, and was attacked by a Brexiteer. Rachel Riley tweets that Corbyn deserves to be violently attacked because he is a Nazi?. Quote:

Two weeks ago, Ms Riley and Tracy-Ann Oberman, a well-known Jewish actress, hired [Mark] Lewis to take legal action against up to 70 people they believe either posted libellous claims about them or sent them abusive messages. End of quote.

As I reported recently on Whaleoil, Mark Lewis has already announced that he is planning to flee Britain as it is engulfed by anti-Semitism. No doubt Corbyn?s supporters will whisper that his representing Riley and Oberman is some kind of Jewish conspiracy.
