“When you spell Gay wrong but your phone auto corrects it to Fag”.

Nawaz has shared Jeremy Corbyn’s posts and Momentum videos on Facebook. Leoni Benabú Morales, President of the Manchester Jewish Society said:

“Claiming that Hitler himself is Jewish and comparing Israel to Nazi Germany is an insult and should not be tolerated from anyone, much less someone who is meant to represent our students.”

“Tayyib’s views have no place in the Labour Party and the fact that they came from an individual who holds an elected role within our movement makes it even more sickening”.
