Momentum Not Suspending Jackie Walker, Demand Labour Reinstate Her

Momentum have sacked Jackie Walker as vice chair but decided not to suspend her membership or remove her from their steering committee. They say in a statement released last night that her comments on the Holocaust were “irresponsible” but not anti-Semitic, and they say she was stitched up: “Momentum is concerned that footage of a training session was leaked to the press. The leak is unacceptable and undermines much needed political education”.

They add: “On the basis of the evidence the Committee has seen, Jackie should not be expelled from the Labour Party”. So Momentum believe Walker’s comments were not anti-Semitic, blame the media for exposing her and say she shouldn’t be kicked out of Labour. Wonder what the Labour moderates who kowtowed to Momentum last week have to say now…
