.@jeremycorbyn has repeatedly attempted to reassure those concerned about #LabourAntisemitism that @UKLabour’s disciplinary process would deal with the problem.
This revelation suggests that claim was a lie. The disciplinary process appears only in place to protect racists.
Mr Corbyn should be subject to the same procedure as every other member.
The report we submitted contained 21 separate instances that we felt justified investigation, including Mr Corbyn’s honouring of the Munich terrorists...
and his ‘British Zionists don’t understand English irony’ comments.
A source who previously worked in Labour’s compliance unit told us that under any other circumstances that body of evidence would lead to suspension and investigation.
The failure to investigate Mr Corbyn is another nail in the coffin of Labour’s moral integrity and further conclusive evidence of institutional racism.
(And the party didn’t even have the decency to tell us they would be closing the investigation themselves, we only found out through this article.)

Labour high command has been accused of letting off allies of Jeremy Corbyn accused of anti-semitism by claiming that leading activists in the firing line are not even members of the party.
@UKLabour @jeremycorbyn…
LAAS has reported more than 1,200 accusations of anti-semitic abuse by suspected members over the past two years. In several cases those with close links to the leadership have been exonerated because party bosses claim they cannot find evidence that they are party members.
Euan Philipps, a LAAS spokesman, said:
“It is deeply troubling that the Labour Party appears to routinely reject complaints against members on the grounds that they cannot locate their membership information.

BREAKING>> Ken Livingstone Resigns from Labour Party
Labour Against Antisemitism welcomes the resignation of Ken Livingstone. The Labour Party will doubtlessly be a better place without Mr Livingstone’s membership.
#LabourAntisemitism @UKLabour @jeremycorbyn
However, his abrupt departure today should not obscure a number of issues:
Firstly, that he should have been expelled many months ago for comments that were deeply offensive and inaccurate, and the culmination of a lifetime spent making publicly problematic statements that many in the Jewish community found distressing.

Statement on the Israeli Labour Party severing ties with the leader of the UK Labour Party:
The announcement by the Israeli Labour Party that it is severing ties with the leader of @UKLabour, Jeremy Corbyn, is unprecedented, shocking but unsurprising.
An undeniable schism has opened between the UK Labour Party leadership and the Israeli Labour leadership, which reflects the breakdown of the UK Labour Party’s relationship with both the British Jewish community and its counterparts overseas.
Labour Against Antisemitism would like to offer our thanks to the Israeli Labour Party for their solidarity and support at this time. We appreciate that the decision must have been a very hard one.

Statement from Labour Against Antisemitism:
NEC failures must lead to further resignations.
The leaked minutes of an NEC meeting from last month are evidence of a Labour NEC that is fundamentally unable to tackle racial discrimination within the Labour Party.…
Labour Against Antisemitism has been reporting anti-Jewish racism for 18 months, assuming the party and the disputes panel would take it seriously. We have submitted reports on over 1,000 members since September 2016.

Statement from Labour Against Antisemitism:
Jeremy Corbyn Must Show He Is Listening to Community Representatives, Not Just Minority Factions
Jeremy Corbyn has yet again shown misjudgement in meeting with Jewdas, the radical minority group. It has been received as a provocative action, that appears to be cynically engineered to create division within the Jewish community.
While it is welcome that Mr Corbyn wishes to engage with the Jewish community, he needs to speak with representatives of that community, not minority factions with little or no mandate to speak on the community’s behalf.

Labour Claim of 70 Outstanding Antisemitism Cases Dismissed by Activist Group – Over 1,000 Members Reported Since September 2016
The Labour Party claims there are only 70 (other reports have suggested 74) outstanding cases of antisemitism: that claim is either a lie or evidence of a reporting process that is totally unfit for purpose & an NEC that is failing.
Between September 2016 and June 2017 at least 750 members were reported to the compliance unit by members of Labour Against Antisemitism.
