Antisemitism in party meetings

'agents of a foreign power'

Alex Holmes, vice-chairman of Labour's Ilford South branch

Tonight was the worst Labour party meeting I have ever attended. A member accused me and others of being 'agents of a foreign power' as they proposed a motion attacking the Board of Deputies of British Jews. Me and a Jewish member spoke against the motion, but the motion passed.

Their motion claimed that there was 'no antisemitism in the Labour Party' and the proposers used multiple antisemitic tropes to make their point that the Board of Deputies is a 'Tory organisation' 'illegally interfering in the Labour leadership contest'
