LibDems Call for Clegg to Remove Whip From Jihad Jenny
Weak Clegg Wriggles

The Chairman of the Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel, Gavin Stollar, is not very happy with Jenny:

“LDFI strongly condemns Baroness Tonge’s latest outburst not only because it is wrong but because it is contrary to Lib Dem Party policy. Jenny Tonge is an irrelevant, siren and marginal voice in the Liberal Democrat Party and we call on her to resign the Lib Dem whip. If she truly believes the things she says, how can she justify being a member of a Party whose policies are diametrically opposed to her views on Israel and the Middle East, a subject on which she talks on almost a daily basis.”

Guido understands a statement from HQ is imminent…

UPDATE: A LibDem spokesperson said:

“Jenny Tonge does not speak for the party on Israel / Palestine. Her presence and comments at this event were extremely ill-advised and ill judged. The tone of the debate at this event was wholly unacceptable and adds nothing to the peace process. The Liberal Democrats are wholehearted supporters of a peaceful two-state solution to the Israel / Palestine issue.”

Not sure that will be enough for everyone…
