THREAD @jeremycorbyn @UKLabour a few weeks late, last weekend I watched the @BBCPanorama doc on #Labourantisemitism. I was expecting to learn a little but not to learn that much/be that shocked as I've been following the crisis for a while and speaking out against #antisemitism
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 2. However, I was INCREDIBLY shocked by what I saw/heard re. the abuse that had/continues to happen but ALSO the response to the crisis and doc. by @jeremycorbyn and @UKLabour
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 3. @jeremycorbyn did not appear on the show and his advisor that did didn't really add anything. All the responses accused people of lying and making smears/plots against them
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 4. People don't lie on national TV about being signed off work sick with anxiety and depression. People don't lie on national TV about being at the point of suicide due to the crisis + toxic working environment they were working in where their concerns were pushed aside
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 5. What did I discover? Just how badly this is affecting British Jews, the Illegal practices implicating the Labour Party re. what should be impartial investigations, vile language directed at people, weak "slaps on the wrist" rather than proper disciplinary action
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 6. At no point was seemingly any REAL effort made to address the issue. Such is true that Jewish and non-Jewish members of the complaints team were left suicidal, signed off work and with no other choice in their mind but to leave
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 7. I've never been interested in party politics but these people were active, were engaged and working for Labour, members of Labour and they've been LET DOWN atrociously.
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 8. There is no place for #antisemitism in British society in any case, yet to let it fester within your OWN party is betrayal. Too little action, too few promises, too little interest
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 9. I honestly believe that they don't care or they are totally in over their heads and don't know what #antisemitism actually is. Yet as it's been said before, this are leaders, a political party - they must know, they must learn and educate others
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 10. What a poor model has been shown. How difficult is it to learn? To listen to others? you rejected engagement with Jewish bodies @jeremycorbyn-an olive branch was offered yet you denied it. You showed you either didn't care or you "thought you knew it all" -again not inclusive
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 11. If you cared about British Jews, you would have engaged - and not just with your "friends" who are #antizionist. You didn't listen, you didn't learn, you didn't engage and now you've launched a website + leaflet
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 12. This comes YEARS after the deteriorating effect it's had on British Jews. The website is sparse, the booklet lacking in info. They show the same attitude: to little too late. You don't come across as honest about it @jeremycorbyn - sorry
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 13. We as the public can learn -you should have known better. You're the leader of a major PP + a grown man. I'm therefore forced to ask: did you know exactly what you were doing all along or not? Did you not care/know how to address it? I ask these Qs because it's been TOO LONG
@jeremycorbyn @UKLabour @BBCPanorama 13. Can this be rectified? You'll have to ask the Jewish community that. I'd say only with real will and honesty and I don't think that's there. If it was, it'd never have gotten this far PERIOD #LabourAntisemitism #antisemitism #BeLouder
