Jew Process

A councillor investigated over antisemitism and helped bring down Labour MP Louise Ellman, who resigned over racism, is now set to replace her, TBG can sensationally reveal.

The Jewish Chronicle are reporting that Jo Bird – suspended earlier this year over her inflammatory antisemitism remarks – is being presented to local members as candidate to replace the Jewish MP who quit the party over Jew-hate.

The Jewish Voice For Labour member also repeatedly joked about what she called “Jew process” at activist meetings and claimed it had been wrong to expel Marc Wadsworth from Labour after his confrontation with Jewish MP Ruth Smeeth.

She sparked further fury by adapting the famous ‘First they came for...’ Holocaust poem by German theologian Martin Niemoller to include the line: “They came for the anti-Zionists, and I stood up because I was not a target, I stood up in solidarity."
