In the wake of the resignation of Dame Louise Ellman MP from the Labour Party, the former leader of Scottish Labour has announced that he “won’t be voting Labour again until the antisemitism problem is sorted.”
Jamie Glackin tweeted the statement and insisted that “if that gets me purged then I can live with that,” a likely reference to the expulsion of some other Labour members who disclosed that they had voted for other parties in recent elections.
Meanwhile, Blair McDougall, a former candidate and director of strategy for Scottish Labour, has also described Dame Louise’s resignation as “an appalling indictment of what Labour has become. If several members of Parliament from any other ethnic minority had been forced out, most Party members would be up in arms. Because it’s Jews most will explain it away,” adding: “I look forward to every Labour member replying to her resignation statement with celebratory gifs f***ing off back to whatever racist Stalinist sect they crawled out of.”
On 28th May, the Equality and Human Rights Commission launched a full statutory investigation following a formal referral and detailed legal representations from Campaign Against Antisemitism, which is the complainant.
