Quote of the day 10th November 2020

“The Labour group on Copeland Borough Council appears embroiled in its own antisemitism crisis.  

"We urge the Labour Party to take the strongest possible action and send the clear message that there is zero tolerance of anti-Jewish racism.” 

(Euan Philipps, a spokesperson for the campaign group Labour Against Antisemitism, quoted on The Independent newspaper website, referring to the resignation of two Labour members of Copeland Borough Council who the BBC had reported were under investigation for apparently anti-semitic social media posts, and to comments from the former Labour parliamentary candidate for Copeland in which he accused his own party of "McCarthyite" actions in response to complaints of anti-semitism.)
