Tory MPs Demand Labour Sacks Naz Shah

Labour are under pressure to remove the whip from Naz Shah and John McDonnell is facing calls to sack her as his PPS. This morning eight Tory MPs demanded Labour take action over her call for mass “transportation” of Israelis out of the Middle East. They tell Guido:

Mike Freer:

“She is another example of the poison that is coursing through the Labour Party. She should have the whip withdrawn and she should recuse herself from the Home Affairs inquiry into Ant-Semitism.”

David Morris:

“These posts are simply disgraceful and will upset people in all parties. Labour can’t just brush this under carpet – Naz Shah should have the whip removed immediately.”

James Cleverly:

“There is no place for anti-Semitism in politics, Jeremy Corbyn must now show he’s willing to deal with it in his party. Why has the Labour whip not been withdrawn from Naz Shah?”

Andrew Bridgen:

“If Jeremy Corbyn was serious about tackling anti-Semitism, he would put his money where his mouth is and remove the whip her from Naz Shah immediately.”

Sir Eric Pickles:

“These harmful words echo the acts of hate and intolerance we as a country have always stood against and for them to come from a Member of Parliament about to conduct an inquiry into the rise of anti-Semitism is outrageous. I would urge Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to take immediate action.”

Michael Fabricant:

“Naz Shah has appeared to have out done George Galloway in sheer spite and loathing.  Her sitting on a Home Office inquiry into antisemitism means she will bring her own personal expertise to the Committee. If it weren’t so tragic, it would be laughable.”

Oliver Dowden:

“It is completely unacceptable for anyone to use phrases like “transportation” and “solution” when it comes to Israel. Labour’s Naz Shah must know the dark historic significance they have for Jewish people. The Home Affairs Select Committee on which she sits is to conduct an inquiry into the rise of anti-Semitism; this raises serious questions about her fitness for it.”

Suella Fernandes:

“In light of these comments, it is entirely inappropriate for Naz Shah to remain on the Home Affairs Select Committee. How can an inquiry into anti-Semitism be taken seriously if it is conducted by someone who has expressed these disgusting views.”

Labour MPs are comparing her to Eichmann. So far McDonnell and Labour have said nothing…

Quote of the Day

President Trump on May’s Brexit deal:

“I would say that Brexit is Brexit. … The people voted to break it up. So I would imagine that’s what they’ll do. But maybe they’ll take a different route, I’m not sure that’s what they voted for.”
