Our activist @CJ_Appleby has written a powerful & emotional resignation letter to @JennieGenSec and @UKLabour.
His account of #labconf2018 describes a nightmarish atmosphere where outright hate speech was commonplace.

“I was a delegate at Conference in Liverpool. It wasn’t a welcoming place for a Jew.

At breakfast on Monday, I was joined by two people I’d not met before. They hadn’t met each other before. They were both delegates.

“The ease with which they segued from talking about breakfast to agreeing that Jews were “subhuman”, “didn’t deserve to be allowed to define what constitutes antisemitism” and should “be grateful we don’t make them eat bacon for breakfast every day” stunned me.

Here are the crosstabs if anyone wants to dig around:
