#EnoughIsEnough - Thread. The latest Labour antisemitism revelation from last night is gobsmacking. The chair of the party’s panel which investigates antisemitism *sided with a holocaust denier*. Some thoughts:
1 - this holocaust denier was selected a Labour council candidate. Let’s dwell on that. A holocaust denier feels that his political home, the party he can best represent in local government, is Labour. And his local party chose him - a holocaust denier - to represent them.
2 - the chair of the panel who defended him, Christine Shawcroft, ousted her predecessor with the support of Momentum. At the time, Jews were concerned that the panel would no longer take antisemitism seriously. This was, as usual, dismissed as a Blairite smear. We were right.
