A commissioner on racism that divides

Hailed by some for her qualifications, criticized by others for her opposition to the law on secularism: the appointment of the city’s first anti-racism commissioner has just been announced that it divides.

“It’s a big blunder,” says Micheline Labelle, sociologist and professor at UQAM. She sees it as a “partisan appointment” which “gives a special touch to a committee that did not need that”.

On Tuesday, the City of Montreal announced the appointment of Bochra Manaï, who will become the first commissioner for the fight against racism and systemic discrimination as of next week.

This position was created in response to the recommendations of a report tabled this summer which pointed out the shortcomings of the City in its fight against discrimination.

The news was greeted “with great satisfaction” by Haroun Bouazzi, one of the activists who called for a debate on systemic racism in the metropolis.

With a doctorate in urban studies and two master’s degrees, Bochra Manaï was the director of an organization that fights against social exclusion in Montreal-North.

Lack of neutrality?

Some expect his tenure to be more “explosive” than consensual, not least because Mr.me Manaï is one of the opponents who led the challenge of law 21 on secularism in court. She was then spokesperson for the National Council of Canadian Muslims.

By choosing Mme Manaï, the City made a “courageous decision,” said Solange Lefebvre, professor of religious studies at the University of Montreal. “We have the right, in Canada, to be for or against a bill.”

For Micheline Labelle, it would have been better to name someone “neutral”, since his positions against Bill 21 risk discrediting his actions, she laments.

For Haroun Bouazzi, activist for human rights, it is the opposite. “Anyone who would have agreed with a law like this would have had no credibility.”

Fracture

The divide therefore seems to follow the divide between prolaïcité and antilaïcité, or even those who claim that systemic racism exists or does not exist in Quebec.

“It’s appalling,” insists André Lamoureux, political scientist and professor at UQAM. “I find it scandalous that the City of Montreal is providing funds for […] an ideological concept “, says the one who affirms loud and clear that the notion of systemic racism does not really apply to the reality of Quebec.

“We are shocked,” reacts Ferid Chikhi, co-spokesperson for the Quebec Association of North Africans for Secularism. He fears the “subjectivity” that he says comes with the activism of a “victimized minority that cries all the time.”

In contrast, Maryse Potvin, professor of education at UQAM, affirms that systemic discrimination is a well-documented phenomenon, as are the discriminatory effects of Bill 21. “I think we must give the runner a chance” , she says.

“Whether she is an activist against discrimination against Muslims in Canada, I do not see how that disqualifies her for a position which aims, precisely, to fight against discrimination”, abounds Martin Papillon, professor at the University of Montreal .

Avoid demonizing

But behind this divide, Solange Lefebvre assures us that it is normal that there are so many debates on such a complex subject.

“We must avoid demonizing people: whether it is the Legault government [qui refuse de reconnaître l’existence du racisme systémique] or those who challenge Law 21 ”, she tempers.

As of this writing, Bochra Monaï had not responded to our interview request.

Arteta divides players into categories as he battles Arsenal dressing room split

Mikel Arteta has issued an Arsenal rallying cry that suggests he accepts he is battling a dressing room split.

“You have two types of players – fighters and victims,” the rookie Gunners boss said.

“You just want fighters. You don’t need victims. Victims bring excuses, negativity. They start to blame things that happen around them.

“You need people who give everything for the cause in these moments. Do I have enough fighters? Yes I do. But some of them can doubt at any moment.”

Mirror Sport revealed, at the weekend, the extent of the mutinous internal rifts that have left the north London giants four points off the relegation zone. The stats make for harrowing reading ahead of the Carabao Cup quarter-final at home to Manchester City.

Arteta is desperate to turn Arsenal around

Arsenal have gone seven games without a win, scoring just three in that time. In fact, they’ve scored just 12 Premier League goals all season – even struggling Fulham have scored more. Only the bottom three have scored fewer.

Fair play to Arteta for still believing. And for the club for believing in him.

His players? Clearly more uncertain.

“There are people that are very contagious and can transmit a certain level of energy,” he said, in an acknowledgement of the dressing room splits which have undermined his efforts to rebuild.

“When you have a lot of them it is very easy.

The Gunners boss wants to see his players come out fighting

“You always have some on one side, some in the middle and some completely on board. And then you have to drag as many people as you can into your side, to the fighting side.

“The ones that are not interested or unable to do it, they have to stay behind because if not, they are pulling us right back.

“Some of them can doubt in any moment, you know, because when you find yourself in this situation, you are tempted to go to the other side.

“You start to say, ‘We’ve scored an own goal’, or ‘We cannot play with 10 men’, or ‘We don’t have the crowd’ or ‘The referee made this decision’. But I’m sorry, we don’t need any of those.”

Arsenal sit 15th. In utter disarray. Even if they win against City and go on to win the whole thing, does anyone seriously think it will act as a consolation for the Gunners’ shambolic league form?

Arteta is eyeing a win over former club City

In fact, the only thing Arteta has managed to get right in recent weeks is the scale of the crisis.

“Ken Friar, the club President, has been here longer than anybody – 70 years,” he said.

“He told me, ‘Mikel, it is not one of the more challenging years in Arsenal’s history – believe me, I’ve been here 70 years – it is the most challenging and difficult year in Arsenal’s history’.

“The results now in the Premier League are taking a gloss off what we’ve done for sure, and we have to accept them because there is now a negativity around the team. We cannot deny that.”

The promise of last season’s FA Cup win is now a distant memory. Arteta has been let down by big names and superstar players, some of whom have had their form desert them, some of whom are no longer good enough.

Mother divides social media by using modelling clay to teach her four-year-old son about cesareans


Mother is branded ‘disturbing’ for using modelling clay to teach her son about Cesarean births as an activity for his fourth birthday

  • Mother-of-two Jessica So is a board-certified dermatologist based in California
  • Released series of clips ‘performing surgery’ on a human body made from clay
  • But her most recent, showing a C-section operation, met with fierce backlash

A mother has divided social media by using modelling clay to teach her four-year-old son about Cesarean births. 

Jessica So, a board-certified dermatologist based in California, has released a series of videos as she ‘performs surgery’ on the human body made from modelling clay. 

Her most recent clip, released on Twitter under Jessica’s username The Breakfasteur, showed a C-section demonstration, which she uploaded alongside a caption that read: ‘Cesarean #playdoughsurgery for my kid’s 4th birthday.’ 

The video, which has so far been viewed more than 3.4 million times, saw the mother-of-two cutting through the fake stomach.

She then encouraged her young son to get involved and passes him a clay modelling knife to make further incisions before working their hands through the layers of clay. 

But dozens of users felt uncomfortable with the clip after it was shared online.

Jeremy Corbyn divides Labour again as he returns without Whip


Labour was facing a new civil war last night as Left-wing MPs and the party’s biggest union backer attacked Sir Keir Starmer’s decision to deny Jeremy Corbyn the whip.

Sir Keir said his predecessor had ‘undermined’ work to restore trust in Labour’s ability to tackle anti-Semitism.

Mr Corbyn was suspended as a Labour member last month after saying anti-Semitism in the party was overstated, before being reinstated on Tuesday following a disciplinary hearing.  

But Sir Keir yesterday announced he would not restore the Labour whip, meaning Mr Corbyn will continue to sit as an independent MP. His decision provoked a furious response from Mr Corbyn’s supporters.

A total of 32 Labour MPs and peers from the Socialist Campaign Group described Sir Keir Starmer’s decision to deny Jeremy Corbyn the whip as ‘wrong and damaging’

A total of 32 Labour MPs and peers from the Socialist Campaign Group described the decision as ‘wrong and damaging’ and called for it to be reversed.

They included former shadow cabinet ministers John McDonnell and Diane Abbott – and Sir Keir’s former leadership rival Rebecca Long-Bailey. 

Len McCluskey, head of the Unite union, who is one of Mr Corbyn’s closest political allies, branded the decision ‘vengeful’.

He accused Sir Keir of ‘despoiling party democracy’, adding: ‘The continued persecution of Jeremy Corbyn – a politician who inspired millions –by a leadership capitulating to external pressure on party procedures risks destroying the unity and integrity of the party. I urge Keir Starmer in the strongest terms to pull back from the brink.’

There were reports last night that Mr Corbyn was considering legal action. His allies suggested he could allege ‘political interference’ in disciplinary rules, according to The Times. However, MPs said there were no grounds for a legal challenge.

Figures from the moderate wing of Labour – including veteran Jewish MP Dame Margaret Hodge – welcomed withholding the whip.

Mr Corbyn was suspended by Labour three weeks ago for his reaction to a damning Equality and Human Rights Commission report which ruled the party broke equality law under his leadership. 

Last month, Mr Corbyn was suspended as a Labour member for saying anti-Semitism in the party was overstated. He was reinstated on Tuesday following a disciplinary hearing

Last month, Mr Corbyn was suspended as a Labour member for saying anti-Semitism in the party was overstated. He was reinstated on Tuesday following a disciplinary hearing

He was reinstated by the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) on Tuesday. Yesterday, following pressure from Jewish groups and threats to resign from moderate MPs, Sir Keir issued a statement saying: ‘Jeremy Corbyn’s actions in response to the EHRC report undermined and set back our work in restoring trust and confidence in the Labour Party’s ability to tackle anti-Semitism.

‘In those circumstances, I have taken the decision not to restore the whip to Jeremy Corbyn. I will keep this situation under review.’

Ex-shadow chancellor Mr McDonnell said the action was ‘just plain wrong’ and would cause ‘more division and disunity in the party’ while Miss Abbott said removing the whip ‘raises serious questions of due process’.

Former shadow cabinet minister Richard Burgon added: ‘Jeremy should immediately have the whip restored. 

At a time of national crisis, division in the Labour Party serves nobody but the Tory Government.’

Meanwhile, Momentum, Mr Corbyn’s hard-Left grassroots support group, began a petition calling for his reinstatement. By yesterday afternoon it had 1,000 signatures.

A union source also said Sir Keir’s decision was ‘panicky’ and prompted questions about his leadership ability. The source also claimed the Labour leader had shown ‘bad faith’ following behind-the-scenes discussions about trying to unify the party.

But Dame Margaret, who was said to have been on the brink of resigning after the NEC ruling, said: ‘As Corbyn has refused to accept the findings of the EHRC report, refused to apologise for his actions and refused to take any responsibility, withholding the whip is the right decision.’ 

Sir Keir’s move also won the support of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

Mr Corbyn was suspended from Labour last month after claiming the scale of anti-Semitism had been ‘dramatically overstated for political reasons’ by opponents inside and outside Labour, along with the media.

He has not apologised, but issued a statement ahead of the NEC meeting saying concerns about anti-Semitism were ‘neither ‘exaggerated’ nor ‘overstated’. The decision to readmit him was made by an NEC panel of five members who are independent of the Labour leadership – but they had no power to restore the whip.

That decision rested with Sir Keir and party chief whip Nick Brown.

Last night a YouGov poll showed 50 per cent of the public backed the Labour leader’s decision while just 21 per cent said he was wrong.

However, only 38 per cent of Labour voters supported Sir Keir compared to 32 per cent who did not, indicating serious divisions in the party. 

A fight for soul of the party Keir MUST win

By Ian Austin, Former Labour MP, for The Daily Mail

When Keir Starmer was elected Labour leader seven months ago his first promise was to ‘tear anti-Semitism out by its roots’.

Anti-Jewish racism had poisoned the party under his predecessor Jeremy Corbyn and the new leader vowed he would restore Labour’s reputation as a decent party.

Sir Keir was determined to introduce all sorts of changes to show the party had learnt its lesson.

He didn’t have much choice because Labour had become the first party in history to be subjected to a full inquiry by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, the official body established to tackle racism and prejudice.

Their verdict was damning. Labour, they found, had broken the law in its treatment of Jewish people and the commission demanded a series of changes to the party’s procedures.

Corbyn claimed the problem of anti-Semitism was ‘dramatically overstated for political reasons by our opponents inside and outside the party as well as by much of the media’ – he always thinks he is the victim of a conspiracy to smear him.

But Sir Keir suspended his predecessor from membership of the party.

And I welcomed this, having repeatedly criticised the party for failing to deal with the scourge of racism.

What happened next was very much less welcome, however. 

Everyone expected there would be a proper investigation, not just into Corbyn’s comments about the EHRC report but to deal with outstanding complaints about his behaviour in the past.

But on Tuesday, amid rumours of a deal brokered by the powerful boss of the Unite union Len McCluskey, it emerged that Corbyn’s case was being fast-tracked to a disciplinary hearing held under the old discredited rules the EHRC had demanded should change.

Corbyn, meanwhile, issued a so-called ‘clarification’ which completely failed to apologise for the comments that had led to his suspension, let alone the offence he had caused to Jewish people over the years.

On top of this, we received the shocking and deeply disappointing news that Corbyn’s suspension was being lifted and he would be readmitted to the party.

I couldn’t believe that Sir Keir allowed the hearing to take place and the panel had arrived at this verdict.

More importantly, Jewish people told me they were furious, felt betrayed and let down. So much for the changes that had been promised.

The anger was so great that yesterday Sir Keir did not restore the whip to Corbyn, but too late – the episode has done great damage to his leadership.

Three weeks ago, when Corbyn was suspended, Sir Keir appeared decisive, seeming to make the changes he had promised – but letting the former leader back in reversed all the progress that had been made in the Labour Party I loved.

I joined Labour as a teenager in Dudley to fight racism. I served it proudly for 35 years as a local councillor, Member of Parliament and Government minister until I took the heartbreaking decision to leave last year in protest at Corbyn’s regime and the anti-Semitism that flourished under it.

My Dad arrived in the UK in 1939 as a ten-year-old refugee from what was then Czechoslovakia. His Jewish mum and sisters were unable to escape and were murdered in Treblinka in 1942.

I grew up listening to him teach me about the horrors of the Holocaust, the evils of racism, prejudice and hatred – and the great British values that led our country to fight for freedom through the war.

I have never been as proud of our country as I was last December when lifelong Labour voters across the country in communities with no Jewish people at all – many of whom had never even met a Jewish person – decided ‘enough was enough’.

These were voters like me who could never have imagined being forced to vote Conservative. But they can’t stand racism and they knew they had to prevent Corbyn doing to the country what he had done to his party.

Which is why Corbyn’s return to the party was so depressing and upsetting.

But there is more the Labour leader must do than not restore the whip.

He talks constantly about the need for unity, but there is no point being united as a party when the public thinks you are wrong. And there is never any point trying to compromise with the extremists who have infected Labour.

The battle lines are drawn whether Sir Keir likes it or not. He now faces a huge fight for the soul of the party.

Labour must now show Jewish people and the country that it has learnt from the disgrace of the last five years and that things really will change.

The party must repair relations with Jewish people and show lifelong Labour voters, who turned away in disgust at extremism and racism under Corbyn, that it was wrong. How can it possibly do this while tolerating Corbyn as a member of the party?

The cranks, conspiracy theorists and racists must be driven out. They have no place in a mainstream political party and must be banished to the dark corners on the fringes of politics where they belong.

Starting with Momentum – the party within the party established to support Corbyn’s leadership and target his moderate opponents – the hard-Left must be shown the door. This ‘movement’ encouraged not just well-meaning and naive young people into the Labour Party, but hardened extremists too.

Even yesterday, Momentum’s leading figures were insisting Corbyn had done nothing wrong and his whip should be reinstated. Dealing with them would show proper change.

Union boss Len McCluskey, with his immense financial muscle, backed Corbyn every step of the way over the last five years. He ludicrously called Corbyn’s return to the party a ‘correct, fair and unifying decision’ when it is anything but.

He and the rest of them can try to throw their weight around, but Sir Keir needs to show them who is in charge.

Most members of the public don’t follow policy details or the twists and turns of daily politics, but they sit up and pay attention at important moments and they are watching now.

This is the moment when Sir Keir really has to exert control and save the Labour Party. It will not be easy and the hard-Left will relish the prospect of civil war.

But it is a true test of leadership. It is about how you answer tough questions and whether you can take decisions that show the public where you stand.

You have to show people that new management means real change. It must be more than just a slogan.

Kicking Corbyn out for good would be a start – and would demonstrate that Labour is finally getting a grip on this scandal.

Lord Austin is chairman of Mainstream, the Campaign Against Extremism

Gordon Ramsay divides opinion with £10 chocolate tofu dessert


Gordon Ramsay has split opinion after sharing a video of his chocolate tofu pudding, which has been branded ‘perhaps the most unappetising and unappealing dessert ever’.

The TV chef, 53, posted a Facebook video of the £10 pudding, which is the signature dessert of his swanky Mayfair restaurant Lucky Cat, which specialises in Asian cuisine. 

The post quickly racked up 25,000 likes and 4,700 comments, with some saying they’d like to taste the dish, but others were left baffled by what looked like a ‘brown paper bag’ placed on top. 

Another very impressed user penned: ‘First the poop in the middle, then covered by a layer of what looks like fat, and topped with a piece of pork crackling.’

‘Love you Gordon but chocolate and tofu? I would rather eat the chocolate cake thank you’, commented another. 

A third agreed: ‘Sorry, but chocolate and tofu should NEVER be used together in any way, shape or form whether physically or verbally.’

Katie Price divides fans with snap of Bunny 6, wearing makeup and fake lashe


Katie Price has caused controversy by letting her six-year-old daughter Bunny where a face full of makeup.

The former glamour model’s daughter is seen wearing lipstick, enormous fake lashes and eyeshadow in Katie’s post, which she shared on Instagram.

Katie told her fans: “Bunny loves makeup so much which isn’t a surprise because her sister @officialprincess_andre and me love it and opps I put it on @adventuresofkatieandcarl.”

But some fans have hit out at the 42-year-old star – saying Bunny is “far too young” to be wearing makeup and false eyelashes.

One said: “Not false eyelashes no far too young. Make up yes all girls want too.

Another wrote: “We can put face paint on a child but not make up??? Don’t get it….. It all washes off. She looks beautiful.”

A third said: “I don’t see a prob with this at all, if she likes makeup like this she might grow up to be a professional makeup artist… If your a young dancer they look like this and put lashes on etc etc pretty dresses… let her dress up she’s only doing girly stuff after all xx.”

Bunny celebrated her sixth birthday last month

A fourth added: “For goodness sake. She is a young girl, all little girls love having make up on. There is nothing wrong in it.”

Katie has defended her decision to put makeup on her daughter.

A spokesman for the star told Mirror Online: “Katie appreciates everyone’s views, she does however want to reassure all those following her that both mother and daughter engaged in wholesome daughter, girlie mummy make up fun time together.

“Anyone suggesting anything otherwise is over thinking what is a normal activity, no one was hurt or harmed during this home make up play session, but much laughter , giggles and fun was had all round. Wishing all Mirror readers a very happy Sunday afternoon from Katie, Carl and the fantastic 5!”

Bunny gave her mum’s Carl, who Katie started seeing in April, her seal of approval earlier this month.

In the heartwarming clip that Katie shared on her Instagram story, the youngster proudly showed off a homemade card in which she wrote “Dear Carl, I love you, love Bunny.”
