The Convoy4Palestine has arrived in town. They got a welcome on the M1, as tweeted by Col Richard Kemp, formerly of the British army, terrorism expert and supporter of Israel. I don’t know who the young woman is but she is on a flyover on the M1 (the main motorway between London and Yorkshire if you are not familiar with England’s roads) at Toddington Services by the Milton Keynes turnoff. Others were on the bridge at Mill HIll.

Jeremy Corbyn has joined smoke grenade-touting pro-Palestine protestors outside Downing Street as thousands call for an end to ‘British complicity in Israel’s war crimes’. The rally, organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), comes a month after another demonstration against the unrest in the Middle East descended into violence . . .
Mr Corbyn – who was vocal about his views on the conflict during his time as leader of the opposition – joined the demonstration in a strong show of support.
