I do hope after his motion calling for Brighton and Hove City Council to boycott Israel, that Coun Duncan is going to mount a vigil outside the council meetings to see that no-one uses a mobile phone, voice mail or other Israeli made technological aids.

The same goes for the protesters who plan a rally at Brighton Town Hall which I hope they did not publicise on their computers or buy using mobile phones to text.

There are so many things that will be denied to them now they have declared a boycott war on Israel.

Not least a number of life saving drugs that they must be sure not to use.

Coun Duncan I would like to see a photo posted of you throwing away your mobile phone for a start and I will be happy to send you a complete list of other things you cannot use because they owe their existence to Israeli expertise and technology.

You can’t have it both ways and your boycott needs to be consistent and you will be surprised at how much you will have to give up.

I hope all the councillors realise the implications of what the council will have to give up if this motion is passed.
