BREAKING>> Ken Livingstone Resigns from Labour Party
Labour Against Antisemitism welcomes the resignation of Ken Livingstone. The Labour Party will doubtlessly be a better place without Mr Livingstone’s membership.

However, his abrupt departure today should not obscure a number of issues:
Firstly, that he should have been expelled many months ago for comments that were deeply offensive and inaccurate, and the culmination of a lifetime spent making publicly problematic statements that many in the Jewish community found distressing.
Secondly, that he escapes party discipline that would have established his actions in precedence and so set rules to guide future conduct.
And thirdly and finally, that he can depart without either the leader’s office or the party acknowledging the deep hurt and distress his comments about the Holocaust have caused to the Jewish community.
This is an outcome that does nothing to address the ongoing antisemitism crisis in the Labour Party.
