Two Labour politicians are suspended for allegedly making anti-Semitic comments

Two Labour politicians, Graham Jones and Azhar Ali, have been suspended from the party after allegedly making anti-Semitic remarks at a gathering.

Mr Ali, who is on the ballot paper at the upcoming Rochdale by-election, allegedly blamed people in the media from certain Jewish quarters for fuelling criticism of a pro-Palestinian Labour MP.

It then emerged on Tuesday that former Labour MP for Hyndburn, Graham Jones, allegedly referred to "f-ing Israel" at the same meeting and that UK citizens volunteering to fight for the Israeli Defense Forces should be locked up.

A third senior Labour politician, Hyndburn councillor Munsif Dad, also attended the gathering and has reportedly been "spoken to" by Labour officials.

But Sir Keir Starmer has been accused of failing to act quickly enough, despite repeatedly claiming that rooting out anti-Semitism from the party was one of his top priorities.
