‘virulently anti-Jewish’ tweets dating back years
Labour official suspended
Labour official: a “Jewish lobby” is trying to “gag” people
LAAS expose account of Labour official, hiding in plain sight:
"Alex Hearn, a director for campaign organisation Labour Against Antisemitism, who uncovered Ms Burke’s alleged tweets, described the content as “virulently anti-Jewish" and called on the Labour Party to expel her.
Alex Hearn, a director for campaign group Labour Against Antisemitism, who uncovered Ms Burke’s alleged tweets, expressed concerns about the Labour Party’s vetting procedures for candidates, saying in a statement: “It is concerning that an official of the Labour Party has been publicly posting virulently anti-Jewish rhetoric in plain sight for so long. It is also troubling that Labour’s selection process allowed Vivien Burke to stand as a candidate last year, an obvious failure of its vetting systems.
“Ms Burke’s conspiracy theories such as ‘a very powerful smearing machine’ are reminiscent of far-right politician Marjorie Greene’s ‘space laser’ comments in the US. We call for Ms Burke to be expelled from the Labour Party.”
