Corbyn in race row as anti-Semitic candidate is readmitted: Activist was suspended after sending series of tweets attacking Israel
- Vicki Kirby was suspended from Labour Party in 2014 after Twitter tirade
- She was the party’s candidate for Woking and described Israel as’ evil’
- Labour bosses have now decided to readmit her to the political party
- Jeremy Corbyn under pressure after he said anti-Semitic abuse had ‘no place in our society’
Labour has been plunged into another racism storm after re-admitting an activist despite a series of anti-Semitic tweets.
Vicki Kirby was suspended in 2014, when she was the party’s candidate for Woking, for a Twitter tirade in which she described Israel as ‘evil’.
Her re-admittance emerged just minutes after Jeremy Corbyn said ‘vile’ anti-Semitic abuse had ‘no place in our society’.
Miss Kirby also suggested that Adolf Hitler might be the ‘Zionist God’, said Jews had ‘big noses’, and questioned why Islamic State has had not yet attacked Israel.
Earlier, Mr Corbyn spoke out after shadow cabinet minister Luciana Berger was subjected to a volley of hate messages on Twitter after posting that she was attending a global anti-Semitism conference in Berlin
Yesterday it emerged she had been elected the local party’s vice-chair after being readmitted following the offence.
Last night, Labour said it would only take action to expel her if ‘new evidence’ came to light.
Earlier, Mr Corbyn spoke out after shadow cabinet minister Luciana Berger was subjected to a volley of hate messages on Twitter after posting that she was attending a global anti-Semitism conference in Berlin.
Miss Berger – previously the subject of a 2014 campaign of abuse that led to one man being jailed – posted examples of the latest messages as ‘a reminder of why it’s necessary’.
Mr Corbyn said: ‘The vile anti-Semitic abuse being directed at Luciana Berger is completely unacceptable. It has no place in our society.’
