Jeremy Corbyn is to attend a Momentum event at Labour Party conference alongside an internet troll who called for a Jewish journalist’s throat to be cut. Among the advertised speakers at Momentum’s “World Transformed” event in Liverpool is Richard Seymour, a far-left keyboard warrior and all round nasty piece of work. Last year Seymour said of a Jewish journalist reporting on Israel-Palestine, “f**k him, they should cut his throat”.
Seymour also wrote this about Falklands hero Simon Weston:
Momentum say “the event will be a space of inclusive and respectful debate”. Do they think it’s “respectful” to host a man who said he hoped a Jewish journalist’s throat was cut? Corbyn says “I’m going to be there, because I want to see a world transformed”. Does he think it’s appropriate to share a platform with Seymour?
