Alan Bull was selected as a council candidate by local members even after they knew he shared material on Facebook describing the holocaust as a “hoax“. Labour’s leaked internal report also makes three allegations; that Bull allegedly defended Adolf Hitler, made antisemitic comments at a birthday party and was supposedly pictured protesting outside the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC. He was only suspended from the party three years after the accusations of antisemitism arose…
