This is The Word newspaper.
It’s a Hard Left publication published by a guy called Alan Davies aka Peter Loo.
This is the August edition.
It’s pretty bold dog whistle antisemitism. It’s not the first time this ‘newspaper’ has published a front page like this....
This was another recent edition. It asked ‘Which Side Are You On’ and presented Jeremy Corbyn and starving African children on one side and, prominently, a photo of the ‘Enough is Enough’ rally on the other. It was nakedly antisemitic.
Mr Davies, the man behind ‘The Word’, was reported by @LabourAgainstAS to Labour’s compliance unit for a number of antisemitic messages he posted on social media (not just the ‘Which Side Are You On’ cover).
He was suspended.
However, instead of continuing disciplinary action, Alan Davies continues as a Labour member & is Press Officer for Heywood & Middleton CLP.
He is a member of the Rochdale Local Campaign Forum.
He helps select Labour candidates.
He is a prominent and active Labour activist.
It’s appalling that no action was taken. It is appalling that he continues as a Labour member. The disciplinary process is failing.

Why could it be? Is it cock-up or conspiracy?

By the way, here are some pictures of Jeremy Corbyn.

On Friday I resigned as Chair of Tonbridge & Malling CLP. I informed @jeremycorbyn of my decision yesterday, below is my letter to him (thread).
Dear Jeremy,
Last year I was proud to be appointed as Chair of Tonbridge and Malling CLP. Following a successful if unsatisfactory general election I looked forward to the Labour Party coming together under your leadership to take on the Conservatives, both locally & nationally.
I also optimistically believed that further steps would be made by you and by the Labour Party to tackle and eradicate what was already a growing and concerning issue within some elements of our party: antisemitism.
