    Lightbulb Corbyn Suspended by Labour Over Discrimination Report

    For those not following closely, Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party was found guilty of unlawful discrimination by a UK government body charged with enforcing anti-discrimination laws and that Corbyn's office was complicit.

    The Labour Party has suspended Jeremy Corbyn after he insisted he was “not part of the problem” over the handling of anti-Semitism in the party.
    A Labour Party spokesman said: “In light of his comments made today and his failure to retract them subsequently, the Labour Party has suspended Jeremy Corbyn pending investigation.

    “He has also had the whip removed from the Parliamentary Labour Party.”
    Sir Kier Starmer came under pressure to expel his predecessor after the Equality and Human Rights Commission found the party was responsible for unlawful acts of harassment and discrimination.
    The EHRC’s interim chairwoman Caroline Waters said there had been “inexcusable” failures which “appeared to be a result of a lack of willingness to tackle anti-Semitism rather than an inability to do so”.


    The official report by the UK's anti-discrimination agency is 130 pages long and can be found here. Less than 100 complaints were investigated out of thousands of reported incidents.

    Yeah, this is clearly bullshit. But hey, liberals like you can rejoice that the UK has no big leftwing party left!


    Just goes to show much you and the rest of the right hates the poor, by going as far as making up this sort of bullshit about Corbyn. What is it about anything left of Reagan or Thatcher that gets you guys all in a hiffy

    Someone criticizing human rights violations by Israel should not mean this person is an anti-semite.

    I really can't comment much more on what else Corbyn might've done wrong or mishandled, but Israel should not abuse 'wokeness' to hide their own transgressions behind. And the few times I did investigate these anti-semitism accusations it basically boiled down to Corbyn criticizing war crimes by Israel...

    Corbyn hardly did anything wrong beside from being left-wing, which goes against what modern Labour stands for.

    Thousands of Labour anti-Semitism incidents from 2016-2019, only 15 expulsions.

    The people charged with investigating and disciplining Labour Party members in anti-Semitism cases started to have mental health breakdowns because they were unable to do their jobs thanks to obstruction by Corbyn's office.

    And then we found out those against Corbyn where mostly bullshit, it was fun how that went.

    Won't stop you though. Have fun with your """"Ironic""""" anarchist avatar.

    The report speaks for itself and Corbyn's comments leave little choice for Starmer.

    Hopefully the Labour party can now completely rid itself of the racists who have aligned themselves with it over the last few years move on to being a party that can seriously challenge the Tories.

    What a fucking joke, I saw the comments, nothing about them was racist. But hey, its obvious you prefer the blairite right-wing over the labour party actually supporting the working(labour) class instead of helping the rich get richer.

    The EHRC report is quite clear that anti-Semitism was not dealt with consistently or effectively under Corbyn.

    The fact that you see no problem with the report and continue to dismiss the issues of racism as some sort of conspiracy speak volumes about you.

    I really have no interest entertaining your defence of racism or your childish, ill-informed sixth form politics.

    Anti-Semitism is fucking despicable.

    Criticizing the Israeli government is not Anti-Semitic. There is a very clear distinction that should be made.

    I heard that Starmer signalled left but lurched to the right at the last moment!

    But seriously what does a traffic incident have to do with an investigation into anti-Semitism? So why bring this up?

    Dunno just think there is a sad irony that the labour leader is running down low wage workers in his car while clearly taking advantage of some conservative fueled take over of the labour party. Really shows the core values of the party have been retained, no, polished to perfection over the years

    Isn't this one of the big reasons Labour keeps getting crushed in elections over there?

    Not too familiar with UK politics, but this antisemitism is something I've heard brought up a lot in regards to Labour.

    Is there? Starmer had a minor traffic accident - which will be dealt with by insurers and, if need be, the police - it has nothing to with the EHRC's report and it is telling that you bring this up.

    I'm not sure which core values you are alluding to but EHRC was set up by Labour to combat the kind discrimination that had become imbedded within the Labour Party under Corbyn.

    The reports against Corbyn turned out to be fake, done by blairites to get him out. Which, yes, is a big reason they lost the lost ellection. Labour killed itself on purpose to get Corbyn out of the leadership, and now its an excuse to get rid of him. Reason is that he is left of centre, which does not fit into the blairite labour.

    Why they did not just the lib dems will always be a mystery.

    Getting your own party to lose an important election just you can get rid of the remaining leftwing elements of a party really shows that.

    Criticising the Israeli Government is not anti-semitic. However, the Labour party does have issues regarding anti-semitism, though it is not exclusive to them and is also commonplace in the Tory Party. That said, the goal for the last few years was to smear Corbyn specifically.

    This was the easiest way to do it. Should he have done better? Sure. Does that mean he's solely responsible? Of course not. Is anti-semitism still an issue amongst political parties? Yes. As is Islamophobia, something the Tory Party promised to produce a report on alongside an investigation.

    Spoiler alert. The investigation never happened. There's a lot of hypocrisy at play. Because it's politics.
