I was wondering how far the #antisemitism issue in the Labour Party had moved on in the last few years, so I had a look through the @Gerasite archive
The suggestion that Corbyn himself has always simply been an honest broker, trying to find peace in (a small section of) the Middle East was dismantled by @DavidDPaxton…
Do you remember the original line that nobody had ever encountered any antisemitism in the Labour Party? Owen Jones' tried that one, and a few other things, and @NudderingNudnik pointed him in the right direction…
And then I remembered something that Saul (@NudderingNudnik) and I (mainly Saul) wrote which might help explain why so many people from a certain section of the left are so keen *not* to use the #IHRA definition of #antisemitism…
Finally, you may have wondered what Jeremy Corbyn did with his time as chair of the Stop The War Coalition. Perhaps some of it was spent approving a raft of antisemitic articles for publication, since deleted, but captured and preserved by @RealSTWuk

Matt Wrack is a useful way to illustrate the modern Labour Party (thread)
He's been a member for two years, having previously been prominent and active in the Socialist Party
You might know him better as General Secretary of the Fire Brigades Union
His current role in the party is as Secretary of the Labour Representation Committee (LRC), which John McDonnell's run for many years.
The LRC and the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy (CLPD) share pretty much all their members, and are tiny by comparison to Momentum.
The Secretary of CLPD is one Peter Willsman, the now disputed member of the JC9 group of candidates for Labour's NEC
It's no surprise to see Wrack, and by extension the LRC, backing Willsman.
