Corbyn’s Callaghan Moment

“It’s not a crisis. There’s no crisis,” says Corbyn, echoing Callaghan’s famous “crisis, what crisis?” moment. Extraordinarily he also claims the anti-Semitism row has been created by his opponents:

“The party is the biggest it has been in my lifetime… I suspect that much of this criticism about a crisis in the party actually comes from those who are nervous of the strength of the Labour Party at a local level.”

It’s not racism, just a conspiracy, reckons Jez…

Ken Livingstone Suspended

A Labour spokesperson said: 

“Ken Livingstone has been suspended by the Labour Party, pending an investigation, for bringing the Party into disrepute.

“The Chief Whip has summoned John Mann MP to discuss his conduct.”

Labour MPs Demand Ken is Sacked

Ken: Anti-Semitism is Not Racism

Vanessa Feltz: “It was over the top. Over the top of what?”

Ken Livingstone: “To think of anti-Semitism and racism as exactly the same thing.”

This is why Ken has to go.

Khan Campaigned For Naz Shah, Defended Ken on Anti-Semitism

The anti-Semitism row engulfing Labour is particularly awkward for Sadiq Khan. He campaigned for Naz Shah last year:

And, more disturbingly, he defended Ken Livingstone over his anti-Semitic remarks to a Jewish reporter. Khan said at the time:

“Ken Livingstone has been elected to serve the city of London by millions of voters. Unelected officials should not be able to suspend a democratically elected Mayor unless he is guilty of a significant offence.”

Sadiq didn’t think calling a Jewish journalist a “concentration camp guard” was a “significant offence”…

Ken: “Hitler Was Supporting Zionism”

The McDonnell doctrine says any Labour member who expresses anti-Semitic views must be suspended from the party: “Out, out, out. If people express these views, full stop they’re out”. This morning Ken Livingstone said “Hitler was supporting Zionism… Let’s remember when Hitler won his election in 1932, his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel”. He then said Naz Shah was the victim of a “well-orchestrated campaign by Israel lobby”. Labour MPs are already demanding he must be suspended:

Will Labour suspend him?

UPDATE: Does this comply with the McDonnell Doctrine?

Rupa Huq Defends Naz Shah’s Anti-Semitism

An astonishing interview by Labour MP Rupa Huq on the Today programme, in which she defended Naz Shah’s actions as merely a “silly” mistake and insisted: “Naz Shah did not write any anti-Semitic tracts, she just clicked share“. Errr, Shah typed the words “the Jews are rallying”…

Huq then compared tweeting a graphic of Israelis being transported out of the Middle East to tweeting a funny photo of Boris Johnson on a zip-wire. Is another Labour MP going to have to apologise for her comments on anti-Semitism? A classic case of going on the radio and not having a clue what you’re talking about…

Bradford Councillor Posted Goebbels Nazi Film “The Eternal Jew”

eternal-jew

Guido kids you not, another Bradford councillor has tweeted anti-Semitic propaganda. Cllr Istiaq Ahmed posted a link to the Nazi film “The Eternal Jew”, which was commissioned by Joseph Goebbels. It was originally uploaded to YouTube by the “HitlerMyFührer” channel. He has also posted a conspiracy theory video alleging that Israel is behind ISIS. Ahmed is employed by the charity which Naz Shah chairs. an independent councillor in Bradford, but he says he remains a Labour Party member as well. Will they kick him out too? What is going on in Bradford?

UPDATE: A Labour spokesman says Istiaq Ahmed was excluded from the party years ago. He says he rejoined.

Quote of the Day

Preston Council leader Peter Rankin explains rising anti-Semitism…

“You need to think why this anti-semitism is getting worse. It’s because of the actions of the IDF shelling schools and hospitals and killing and maiming thousands of men, women and children.”
