My goodness. All this anti-semite claptrap has already been debunked. Why wouldn't Mr Flynn be annoyed and regard the continuing harassment as trolling?

Paul Flynn

The site I mention LHJ has been found by others. It is a wordpress document that two people sent to me repeating accusations about events in the distant past and putting the most malign intepretations on them.

Paul Flynn

The case was raised, accusations were made to the delight of the right-wing press who believed every charge. The investigations found that the accusations of anti-Semitism were false or greatly exaggerated. Many blameless people suffered unjustly. This witch hunt had much in common with the malicious Senator Joe McCarthy's hounding of left-wingers. Damage was done to the lives of blameless people yet no apologies for the errors and malicious interpretations of innocent statements.
Now some wish to reheat a discredited campaign. They are plenty of dangerously racists individuals in politics. They are overwhelmingly in parties other than Labour. Go and trawl their websites.

chris

you made that website up, genuine concerns raised and you go its not real and attack the victims ,poor show lad poor show. time to hang up you're boots and go

Mf

and you see zero irony that you are attacking your Jewish constituency for complaining about your anti-semitism. And oh, I seriously doubt some of your best friends are Jews. Unless they are the British self loathing kind who have been beaten down by delusional gaslighting anti-semites like you.

This is absolutely horrific. So other ethnic minorities are (rightly) allowed to define what is racism, why aren't Jews allowed to define antisemitism. They idea that a labour mp could call those worried about antisemitism in the party is alarming at best. I know some of these so called trolls , tjhey are committed to the Labour Party and active members. They are also worried about antisemitism.

This is a disgraceful way to respond, or rather to fail to respond to concerns of antisemitism within the party. Would you react to such expressions from any other social group in a similar way?

Beasley

Very shocked by your response to this ongoing issue. You label fine comrades trolls. This is despicable. The Labour Party you know, and the ones Jews know have no similarity. Thanks for your concern(!)

BenJW

Please remember it is Baroness Chakarabarti, not just Chakrabarti. She got offered a peerage at the same time as she made her clearly unbiased report that claims of antisemitism were much exaggerated, as I'm sure you will recall.

Jos

I cannot believe in 2017 that his is how a Labour MP responds to concerns about antisemitism.

Absolutely disgraceful.
