I can’t recall that since the shocking and abhorrent murder of Jo Cox MP any other Labour MP being physically attacked, not even those who attracted endless media coverage for wanting police protection. But in case you missed it, Jeremy Corbyn was punched over the weekend and his assailant arrested. Yes, you might have missed that, because his name wasn’t, for the sake of argument only, Margaret Hodge or John Mann. That would have been headline news! Anyway, not to worry since ‘Dame’ Margaret rectified her brief absence in the media and threw up another anti-Corbyn accusation, which was to suggest that his office was interfering in alleged cases of anti-semitism. Curious then that she hasn’t also complained about Tom Watson’s well publicised intent to interfere with Labour’s disciplinary cases.
I’ve read that the Jewish Labour Movement (formerly Poale Zion) are considering disaffiliating from the Labour Party. That’s up to them of course, but it could create an opportunity for the excellent Jewish Voice for Labour to seek affiliation. A brilliant take-down of some this anti-semitism hysteria has just been published on their website here.
