Islington Labour and anti-Semitism: "No Comment"


🤐 We've been waiting how long?

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?

 

What do Labour Islington Councillors think about Jeremy Corbyn's suspension?

Some Labour councillors are providing public responses — you can see those below — and a cross section of Labour councillors have been contacted by concerned Islington residents. But the councillors had nothing to say on this crucial social issue and the public shaming of Jeremy Corbyn, Islington North MP and former Labour leader.

So far, four councillors have responded to local residents but gave no view. Nine councillors didn't respond to their constituents at all.

In the meantime, Islington's other Labour MP, Emily Thornberry is deafeningly silent. As is Council Leader Richard Watts.

Clearly there is deep disagreement within Islington Labour - we call on Councillor Watts to issue a statement urgently, answering local peoples' questions and clarifying Islington Labour's position.

We've started a petition to try to get a response. Why not sign it now!
