Labour suspends councillor Jim Sheridan after anti-Semitism rant

The Labour Party has suspended councillor and former MP Jim Sheridan after an outburst on Facebook over the anti-Semitism row.

The 65-year-old, who has not commented since his social media rant, had written:

"For all my adult life I have had the utmost respect and empathy for the Jewish community and their historic suffering. No longer due to what they and their Blairite plotters are doing to my party and the long-suffering people of Britain who need a radical Labour government."



The Facebook post has since been removed.

1. It seems the Labour Party has serious problems with anti-semitism

and Jeremy Corbyn isn't helping.

2. For Corbynites, it's all about them

All too often they consider any concerns about anti-semitism in Labour / Momentum to be an anti-Corbyn plot intended solely to undermine the dear leader.
