An attendee at the Labour Representation Committee event on Monday featuring Jackie Walker and Chris Williamson MP reports that the raffle prize was a signed copy of two Steve Bell cartoons that The Guardian refused to publish apparently because they were feared to be potentially antisemitic.
The Labour Representation Committee is a pro-Corbyn pressure group which has a long history of belittling claims of antisemitism and publishing extremely disturbing articles. The president of the organisation is the Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, John McDonnell.
Ms Walker, a former vice-chair of Momentum and one of those exemplifying the institutionalisation of antisemitism in the Labour Party, was repeatedly suspended by Labour and finally expelled earlier this year. She has persistently claimed that complaints of antisemitism are part of a plot to destabilise the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn and has rejected the International Definition of Antisemitism.
Mr Williamson, was suspended from Labour and then readmitted, only to be resuspended following a public outcry after claiming that Labour has been “too apologetic” over antisemitism.
The attendee also reported that Laura Alvarez, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s wife, was also in attendance at the event.
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.
Over 55,000 people have now signed our petition denouncing Jeremy Corbyn as an antisemite and declaring him “unfit to hold any public office.”
