The Metropolitan Police Service is investigating a secret hate dossier after Campaign Against Antisemitism Chairman Gideon Falter reported it to Commissioner Cressida Dick live on air.
LBC’s Political Editor, Theo Usherwood, revealed live on the Nick Ferrari show this morning that LBC had obtained and investigated a secret leaked dossier of cases that had been put before NEC Disputes Panel.
Mak Chishty, who was the Commander in charge of hate crime at the Metropolitan Police Service before retiring last year, reviewed the leaked dossier for LBC and found 45 cases of antisemitism in it. He classified 17 cases as ”race-hate incidents” which should have been reported to the police. According to Mr Chishty and Charlie Sherrard QC, a criminal barrister who works with Campaign Against Antisemitism, at least four further cases warranted criminal investigation. Mr Chishty said the incidents were “abhorrent” and described the language used as “absolutely horrible.”
According to Mr Usherwood, the four cases that Mr Chishty and Mr Sherrard agreed should potentially be prosecuted were as follows:
- An activist who attacked a Jewish Labour MP as a “Zionist Extremist” who “hates civilized people” and was “about to get a good kicking” for spreading “Zionists propaganda”;
- An activist who posted an article containing Holocaust denial and antisemitic cartoons of Jews from a blog claiming to provide “intelligent antisemitism for the thinking gentile”;
- A Party member posting that “we shall rid the Jews who are a cancer on us all” and that “these Jewish f***ers are the devils”; and
- A party member accused of physically and verbally abusing a seven-year-old boy using racist epitaphs including “Paki” and “Jew-boy”.
After listening to LBC Political Editor Theo Usherwood’s report, presenter Nick Ferrari asked whether he could legitimately report this dossier as evidence of hate crimes in light of what he had just heard.
Later in the programme, Cressida Dick, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service, joined Mr Ferrari for a phone-in. Campaign Against Antisemitism’s Chairman, Gideon Falter called in and officially reported the dossier live on air to the Commissioner. Officers at New Scotland Yard have opened an investigation.
It seems that the Labour Party had information about criminal antisemitic acts committed by its members, including admissions, that they decided to cover up. This is an appalling new low for the Labour Party, which now appears to be shielding race hate criminals. The police investigation needs to look into whether the Labour Party committed criminal acts of conspiracy, which will be raised with the investigating officers.
