Rupa Huq defends Naz Shah
What's interesting is the way that the defence that she did this before she was an MP, albeit less than a year before is seen as an acceptable defence by Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party. I don't think they'd be so relaxed about a Conservative or UKIP MP saying something even 10 or 20 years ago when at university, but that's the hypocrisy you expect from the left.
Oddly the BBC interviewer didn't pick up Rupa Shah on her remark about just clicking on like or share. Naz Shah typed "the Jews are rallying", that seems to be the phrase that the BBC and the Labour Party are keenest to pretend was never said. So I will remind them of it at every opportunity.
