Parliamentary candidate in antisemitism scandal

Fiona Sharpe, of the campaign group Labour Against Antisemitism, said there is “serious and substantial evidence” the candidate holds views “which should have no place in mainstream British politics”.

She said: “Anyone who has seen the video that emerged on Saturday can be in no doubt Mr Malone is unfit for public office and in our view he should have been immediately auto-excluded by the Labour Party when that video came to light.

“Instead, Scottish Labour appears to be hiding behind process, and are reportedly bullying appalled local party members from speaking out. This is simply not good enough.”
