Tesco executives have agreed to meet members of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign to discuss labelling on produce from West Bank settlements, despite insisting that there will be no change in their policy.But see further down the piece:
The long-challenged voluntary labelling guidelines, whereby supermarkets are encouraged by the government to state explicitly on packaging whether the produce comes from Jewish settlements or not, may be in place by the end of the month.
Although Israeli officials have protested about the guidelines, one source close to the foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, was much more sanguine this week. He said: “I understand David Miliband wants to be leader of Labour and so has to say some things to curry favour in his party. What he has said to us is much less worrying, and I am very optimistic.”So because Miliband wants to be elected leader of the Labour Party he is lying publicly whilst putting the mind of Moldova's man in Palestine at ease. It means that the racist war criminals of the State of Israel are more in the know about British policy than the British are. Wonderful! And it's not even the JC's headline because BRITS BOW TO ISRAEL isn't considered headline grabbing stuff.
