Labour's new legal adviser on antisemitism 'absolutely' shares Corbyn view on Israel

'A senior lawyer appointed by the Labour Party as their new in-house counsel to oversee the disciplinary process on antisemitism cases has said he "absolutely" shares the same views on Israel and Palestine as Jeremy Corbyn.

Gordon Nardell QC's role was confirmed by the party last Friday as part of General Secretary Jennie's Formby's pledge to deal with high-profile outstanding antisemitism cases.

But the JC can reveal that Mr Nardell has a long history of hard left activism as a former member of the Labour Representation Committee, chaired by shadow chancellor John McDonnell.


Mr Nardell was asked by a member of the audience, who said she had only re-joined Labour because of Mr Corbyn's views on foreign policy issues such as Palestine, Syria and opposition to the war in Iraq, if he too supports these views. to which Mr Nardell replied: "Yes absolutely."'

Did you really expect better from the Corbyn lead Labour Party? 

More here at the JC but not on the BBC of course, they are desperate to get the Labour Party antisemitism story off of the news agenda.
