'Labour anti-Semitism is putting off students' - No shit, Sherlock
Even this blindingly obvious BBC report for young people https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-44397362 that some Jewish students are put off going to some British universities because of the left wing antisemitic attitudes prevailing was too much for the Labour Party.
'We contacted Labour in May when we first started to investigate this to provide someone to interview, but they declined.
They sent us this statement.
"The Labour Party takes all complaints of anti-Semitism extremely seriously, which are fully investigated and appropriate disciplinary action taken in line with our rules and procedures.
"Labour's new General Secretary Jennie Formby has made it her first priority to speed up and strengthen our procedures and to develop a programme of political education to create deeper awareness and understanding about all forms of anti-Semitism."'
When the Labour Party under Corbyn won't even be interviewed by the Labour Party's propaganda arm but have to issue a statement you know that they have a really serious problem with antisemitism in the party. Jeremy Corbyn and his cadre have emboldened the antisemites on the left of the Labour Party and the Corbynites won't do anything concrete to stamp down on the antisemites: they've spent years appearing on platforms with antisemites, reading polemical propaganda and calling Hamas and Hezbollah 'friends'.
