Labour Party under pressure to investigate election candidate linked with anti-Semitism

Fiona Sharpe, spokesman for Labour Against Antisemitism, said it was disgraceful not to investigate the Carmarthen East and Dinefwr candidate.

“The refusal of the Labour Party to investigate Carmarthen East candidate Maria Carroll, without even seeing the evidence accumulated by Labour Against Antisemitism and GnasherJew, is a disgraceful decision that again highlights the institutional anti-Jewish racism within the organisation...

We call on senior figures within Welsh Labour, including First Minister Mark Drakeford, to demand that a full investigation be carried out immediately and urge Ms Carroll to step down ahead of the General Election on December 12th.”

Labour candidate ‘ran Facebook group helping members dodge expulsion for anti-Semitism’

Denny Taylor, spokesperson for Labour Against Antisemitism, said: ‘These revelations confirm that the Labour Party appears to have spent the last four years apparently encouraging a toxic culture of anti-Jewish discrimination to flourish. ‘If true responsibility for this must be levelled directly at Jeremy Corbyn. ‘That an alleged network of high ranking Labour officials appear to have been secretly colluding to protect antisemitic members from expulsion is no surprise. ‘What is alarming is the apparent depth and scale of the network, and the seniority of some of the figures mentioned.’
