#Panorama was the most unpleasant hour of television I've ever seen. Depressing, disgusting and heart wrenching. The attempted smears of the whistleblowers given by Lab were also sickening because of the attitude. Our party is in a very sad place and this must be a turning point.
The attacks on whistleblowers as "disaffected employees" were particularly disgraceful given the fact many of them suffered from mental health issues. These are people who clearly genuinely care - more than can be said of the leader's office.
I also found out things about Corbyn's own history that I didn't know and I'm shocked and appalled. I'm not going to go into everything about it which angered and saddened me as so much did, but we should be ashamed that Jews are being treated this way in Labour and by members.
Corbyn must go and be replaced by a leader who will take this seriously, with a root and branch reform, if we're to be able to make any progress towards ending this and rebuilding Labour as an anti-racist and welcoming party again.
I used to think Corbyn was a fundamentally decent man who had a history of some extreme views and was not a brilliant politician (after my old love of him in 2015 was broken) but after watching that I cannot quantify the contempt and disgust that I feel for him...
for both his role in this and those things he did before he was leader that I was unaware of. I can never again say he's a fundamentally decent man and he must resign for the good of the party and country.
I also feel the need to apologise for my past support of him and for my role, however small, in facilitating this. I am sorry. My support for this man ended a long time ago, but not soon enough. I remain a Labour member because I believe that those repulsed by this must stay...
and fight from the inside for a better Labour Party, for a leader that will genuinely tackle this issue, and to do our duty to stand by our Jewish members and do what we can to begin to create a more welcoming environment again.
