How do we know this to be true when the numbers are not published. A large number of complaints, especially from Jewish members are copied into @JewishLabour and our tally significantly differs.
One of our primary concerns is the factional nature of the Labour Party right as we have seen with Willsman/Livingstone, people are too willing to turn a blind eye to bigots. If the NCC is stuffed with yes men and women then how can we trust it?
Whilst I am certain that Mr Nardell is a competent and qualified lawyer he is in no way independent. He knows half of the characters involved in this and has predetermined views on Lab antisemitism. There is no trust he is able to be impartial.
Great. Pat on the fricking back. But if the panels are stuffed full of yes men and women then what the hell is the point? I and others have no confidence in the independence in the process.
Who are the lawyers? What oversight is there? And what law do they specialise in. I.e have they ever worked on any antisemitism cases ever?
Is this procedures working group comprised of anyone who has sat down with the Jewish community or JLM to discuss our serious concerns over procedure?
Well our Leader had to be dragged kicking and screaming into this. The Unions had to put their feet down. This was hardly a moment of glory for anyone.
This was a suggestion that I initially put to Jennie in the 3 hour meeting I had with her. It took months and months to do this very simple and easy thing. I added that if they don't enforce things better she should ask them to withdraw...
I say that as someone who has had threats of violence from ppl claiming or be Labour supporters. Its terrifying.
