THE HARLOW Conservatives have responded to the report on the Labour Party and antisemitism.
A spokesperson said: ‘”Today, the EHRC has announced that the Labour Party broke the Equalities Act 2010 on three counts with regard to antisemitism.
“Whilst the Labour leader, Sir Keir Starmer, has issued warm words on tackling anti-Semitism in the party, he stood by as a top member of Jeremy Corbyn’s team whilst antisemitics were given free rein in the party.
” Indeed, he campaigned to make Corbyn Prime Minister.
At last year’s General Election, Harlow Labour knocked on the doors of residents campaigning not only to make Corbyn Prime Minister, but also to elect their local candidate, who was reportedly involved in this fiasco: https://www.yourharlow.com/2019/11/08/political-storm-as-jewish-news-claims-harlow-labours-election-candidate-laura-mcalpine-defended-jewish-final-solution-slur/
Sir Keir said in his speech today that anyone who was antisemitic “should be nowhere near this party”. He also added that those “who think there’s no problem with antisemitism in the Labour Party, that it’s all exaggerated or a factional attack, then frankly, you are part of the problem too and you should be nowhere near the Labour Party either.”
Will Harlow Labour now be expelling those members who fit that profile?
The time for warm words are over. Harlow Labour must act.”
YH has been advised to direct any questions to the national Labour Party. Which we have.
