Following the suspension of Islington MP Jeremy Corbyn from the Labour Party, we asked Labour councillors if:

  • they agreed with the Equality and Human Rights Commission(EHRC) report’s findings into anti-Semitism in Labour?
  • they agreed with Labour Leader Keir Starmer’s message to those who think allegations of anti-Semitism are exaggerated or a factional attack?
  • they supported the decision to suspend Jeremy Corbyn?

Since then, the majority of Labour councillors, including Council Leader Richard Watts and Islington's other Labour MP, Emily Thornberry have remained silent.
