Not What It Seems ...

The Peoples Republic of Hackney, where incidentally Diane Abbott is the Shadow home secretary and MP for Hackney North, apparently showed once again that anti-Semitism is now a feature of the UK, when what appeared to be an anti-Semitic street sign was put up near a synagogue by persons unknown.

Ms Abbott immediately called it "disgusting" and "unacceptable", while Labour's MP for Tottenham David Lammy said it amounted to "despicable, nasty behaviour that has absolutely no place in our community."

A Lamppost Near A Synagogue In Stamford Hill, North London Caused A Stir ....

 And in fact many others joined in the condemnation ..... But in fact all turned out to be not what it seemed ....

Franck Allais .. Admitted All.

As soon as the story broke, Franck Allais, a freelance photographer came forward, and said that it was not anti-Semitic and in fact was part of an artistic project, which included other signs such as of a woman pulling a shopping trolley.

Sometimes it pays to wait before jumping to conclusions, or opening your mouth without your brain being engaged ....   


  1. I don't see the perceived anti Semitism in the sign? As you say, LOOK before you leap!

    1. To be honest, neither did I. I thought it was just a man with a hat. Certainly I would never have thought it was a Jewish man. But the PC police find offence in everything these days and can spot things, even when they don't exist. Thanks for the comment Vroomfondel.
