W@1: Long-Bailey sacked

world at one (presented by jonny dymond) includes …

Labour MPs from the left of the party have met Sir Keir Starmer to express concerns about the sacking yesterday of Rebecca Long-Bailey. She was removed from the shadow cabinet for re-tweeting an article by the actress Maxine Peake, which suggested that American police involved in the death of George Floyd had learned their tactics from the Israeli secret serices. Mr Starmer said he regarded the claim as an anti-semitic conspracy theory, but some in Labour have sought assurances that those who criticse the Israeli state will not be sacked.”

What about ordinary working Jewish people? You’ll know that the Chief Rabbi has talked of antisemitism, ‘a poison sanctioned from the top’.“

“I think that was wrong and quite extraordinary that a religious leader should come out and say that.”

[0:16:18] “But there are other organisations: the Jewish Voice for Labour, for example, has come out and rejected the type of criticism levelled at Jeremy Corbyn and Labour. It’s unfair!
