Diane Abbott Defends Naz Shah, Says Anti-Semitism Isn’t a Problem For Labour

Just six days before the London mayoral election, Diane Abbott is in Switzerland this afternoon dining with investment bankers, tax avoiders and the one percent. She is the guest of honour of the British-Swiss Chamber of Commerce at a three course lunch at one of the most spectacular hotels in Zurich, the iconic Zunfthaus zur Meisen. Where she offered her thoughts on Naz Shah, Ken Livingstone and Labour anti-Semitism…

According to a co-conspirator in the room, Diane said anti-Semitism “isn’t a problem in the Labour Party, no more than in other mainstream parties”She defended Naz Shah, saying her Facebook posts were “made before she was an MP“. When challenged that the posts were still anti-Semitic, Diane denied this was an “issue“, saying that “other people think this but don’t put it on Facebook“.

She also spoke about the referendum, admitting Corbyn is “having a hard time at the moment” and that he has been “on a journey” with regards his EU position.

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
