We have seen commentary on “The work of the Labour Party’s Governance and Legal Unit in relation to antisemitism, 2014 – 2019 document”. If the reported content is to be believed, it appears that our work to get Labour to power has been undermined for years, leaving the UK at continued risk from this incompetent and malign government.

As an affiliated Socialist Society, we are pleased to see that Sir Keir has opened an independent investigation which must examine the contents of the document as well as its leaking and provenance. Our members expect the report to be truly independent and that its full findings will be made known to every party member and to all affiliated bodies.

The SHA will continue to work with the Party for better health for all through the application of socialist principles.

    I don’t have much faith that the investigation will be as thorough as Sir Keir states. Apparently the leaked report was being suppressed and wasn’t going to be used as evidence in the EHRC investigation, that in itself raised concern amongst Labour members, and we felt from 2016 onwards that we were indeed being targeted, as socialists, from the hierarchy within the party. I was one of the many thousands of members who were not allowed to vote in the 2016 leadership election, a change in legislation that was forced through retrospectively. We were taken to court, we won the right to vote in the first round but were then taken to the high court, where we lost and our vote taken from us. The leaked report showed that the then Gen Sec joked about this fact. We knew we were being targeted. I’m a retired nurse, carer for a brain damaged husband who didn’t litigate against the NHS but did want to take the investigational body to task, along with the PHSO, as they did cover up what happened to my husband. I am 63 work part time now as a school cleaner, still attending work through this pandemic, If I’m a Trot, a Marxist, a member of a factory of hate, a cultist, an anti Semite, all things we members have been accused of in the press and in the main stream media, then the world has definitely gone mad. I am also a paid up member of Jewish Voice for Labour, those voices were also silenced we believe because this organsiation represents the ‘wrong sort of Jew’, it’s a left wing organisation. I always thought that a true socialist, in the same vein as Keir Hardie, Nye Bevan, Michael Foot and Tony Benn were simply socialists, apparently not they have been targeted as ‘dangerous’ and that utterance from the right wing in society shows just how broken democracy really is.
