Islington Corbynistas Blame Israeli Ambassador For Bad Poll Results

Last night Islington North Constituency Labour Party met to nominate Jeremy Corbyn by 266 to 100. Turns out Jez has some interesting local backers:

Another attendee, Padraig Reidy, explains what happened:

a speaker rose to tackle the contention that Corbyn is “unelectable”. This, he said, was because no one was “electable” in Britain without the support of Rupert Murdoch and the Israeli ambassador. Half the room gasped; the chair visibly cringed, and ordered the speaker to proceed very carefully. The speaker contended that anyone who stood up for Palestinians was “smeared” as an anti-Semite. Everyone was very glad when he sat down.

Later on:

A woman rose nervously to talk about anti-Semitism in the party, referring to the early speaker’s “Israeli ambassador” line. She found herself barracked by some of the audience for conflating anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism

Well what do you expect from the Jezbollah London branch…
