Our concern at MP support for a Jeremy Corbyn Government

LAAS Statement

Fiona Sharpe, spokesman for Labour Against Antisemitism, said:

“We are concerned that many MPs, some who have previously professed themselves allies in the fight against antisemitism, appear willing to disregard the concerns of the British Jewish community to promote and enable a Jeremy Corbyn government.

It should be the first red line of any genuinely antiracist MP that Mr Corbyn be kept away from power and out of Number 10.

This is a responsibility for every member of Parliament, not just those from the Labour Party. Mr Corbyn’s reported views suggest he cannot be trusted to protect the British Jewish community and ensuring the safety of all our citizens, particularly minorities, must be the first and last priority of our elected representatives.”
