MP John Woodcock quits Labour Party per the BBC who still hide the comments made by Margaret Hodge
This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-44871628 about John Woodcock's quitting the Labour Party includes some sections about antisemitism, which I will reproduce below, but please note the way the BBC introduce the story, following the lead-in sentence:
'John Woodcock has quit as a Labour MP and will now sit as an independent in the House of Commons.
The Barrow and Furness MP, a long-time critic of Jeremy Corbyn, was suspended in April over claims he sent inappropriate messages to a former female member of staff.
He has denied the claim, which is being investigated by the party.'
Anyone who dares to question, or in any way damage the reputation of Jeremy Corbyn will be liable for character destruction.
' In his resignation letter, he said the party had been "taken over by the hard left" and "tolerated" anti-Semitism.
"Anti-Semitism is being tolerated and Labour has been taken over at nearly every level by the hard left, far beyond the dominance they achieved at the 1980s militancy."
His resignation comes a day after Labour's ruling National Executive approved a new code of conduct on anti-Semitism, which has been criticised by Jewish leaders and some of its own MPs.
The document, drawn up after protests by Jewish groups against Labour's handling of the issue, states anti-Semitism is racism but does not fully repeat the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's definition.
Labour said the code, drawn up following the 2016 Chakrabarti inquiry into anti-Semitism, addressed concerns about alleged anti-Semitic remarks by activists and better reflected the views of Jewish community groups.'
Odd that the BBC can't find space to report the claims that Margaret Hodge called Jeremy Corbyn "a fucking anti-semite". Do the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC, really think that this line is sufficient?
'His resignation comes a day after Labour's ruling National Executive approved a new code of conduct on anti-Semitism, which has been criticised by Jewish leaders and some of its own MPs.'
Criticised? Yes that just about covers being called "a fucking anti-semite".
The BBC's pro hard-left Labour Party bias, whilst ignoring the antisemitic attitudes expoused by so many of that ilk, is clear, obvious and odious. Surely the time is ripe for Jewish organisations to start calling the BBC out for the way its biased reporting is enabling antisemitism.
