Joseph Glasman, Head of Political and Government Investigations at Campaign Against Antisemitism, has delivered over a thousand disciplinary complaint letters against Jeremy Corbyn to Labour Party Head Office.
The letters were written by over half of the more than 2,000 demonstrators who protested with Campaign Against Antisemitism outside Labour Party Head Office on 8th April, calling on the Labour Party to hold Mr Corbyn to account over his failure to tackle antisemitism.
Each letter states: “Under Jeremy Corbyn, Labour has become a safe haven for racists. He is at home amongst them, having spent his political career seeking out and giving succour to Holocaust deniers, genocidal antisemitic terrorist groups and a litany of Jew-haters.
“Labour must lead by example and show that Jeremy Corbyn is bound by the same rules as Leader as he was as a backbencher.”
As reported in the national press, Joseph Glasman said: “Just a week ago, thousands of demonstrators joined us outside Labour Head Office to demand that the Labour Party hold Jeremy Corbyn to account for bringing the Party into disrepute in breach of Labour’s own rules.
“We filed a disciplinary complaint to that effect which the Labour Party has thus far tried to rebut without even the formality of an investigation, so today I hand delivered disciplinary complaints from among the more than a thousand we received on the day from those who demonstrated with us, who wish to add their names to the complaint.
“Jennie Formby, the new General Secretary of the Labour Party, must cease her insulting attempt to whitewash these complaints and investigate Mr Corbyn’s conduct. If the Labour Party refuses to hold him to account, then we will hold the Labour Party to account, in court if necessary.”
Following our demonstration, we said that we would return on 13th May if there had been no improvement. We regret that it is looking likely that we will need to return. If you have not already done so, please sign up for updates at antisemitism.org/demonstration.
