.@uklabour 1/5 JVL member Jo Bird says that racism against Jews has been privileged. This is an appalling statement. All racism is wrong - it is not a competition.…
2/5 She was commenting after JVL’s affiliation to another CLP. But she didn’t stop there...

She also called for Jackie Walker’s suspension to be overturned despite Walker’s record of problematic comments about Jews
3/5 Ominously, JVL use the phrase ‘natural justice.’ Jo Bird uses an even more sinister phrase to expand on this: ‘Jew process.’

She even sees a conspiracy in other Jewish organisations ‘We don’t receive money from the state of Israel nor its agencies.’
4/5 She laughably asserts that JVL play ‘a central role in dealing with antisemitism.’ But as JVL Chair Jenny Manson admits, JVL were formed to deny claims of antisemitsm. The only role they play is to endorse antisemitism, which includes their membership
5/5 That these comments were made in a publication of the ‘Labour Representation Committee’ chaired by John McDonnell, shows how institutional antisemitism has become and how deeply JVL are now embedded
