Corbynista Rebecca Long-Bailey sacked from Labour front-bench for sharing anti-semitic theory
CORBYNISTA Shadow education secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey has been sacked for sharing an anti-semitic conspiracy theory on twitter.
Sir Keir Starmer announced this afternoon Ms Long-Bailey had been asked to step down after sharing an article which claimed the tactic used to by US police was “taught by the Israeli army”.
A spokesperson for Keir Starmer said: “This afternoon Keir Starmer asked Rebecca Long-Bailey to step down from the Shadow Cabinet.
“The article Rebecca shared earlier today contained an antisemitic conspiracy theory. As Leader of the Labour Party, Keir has been clear that restoring trust with the Jewish community is a number one priority. Antisemitism takes many different forms and it is important that we all are vigilant against it.”
