My speech in 2009 on antisemitism

Responding to Ken Livingstone’s comments on BBC Radio London this morning (https://www.politicshome.com/news/uk/social-affairs/discrimination/news/74365/ken-livingstone-bbc-radio-london-israel-lobby-tries) John Mann MP has called for him to be immediately suspended and subsequently expelled from the Labour Party.

John Mann MP commented:

 

“I have called for Ken Livingstone to be suspended and then expelled from the Labour Party. Ken Livingstone clearly hasn’t read Mein Kampf, nor has he studied history. His comments are calculated to offend and are factually inaccurate. A top historian would be able to tell him that in 1932 the Nazis had no such policy. The following quote from Mein Kampf makes Hitler’s views very clear”:

 

 “While the Zionists try to make the rest of the World believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim. It doesn't even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organisation for their international world swindler, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks. 
It is a sign of their rising confidence and sense of security that at a time when one section is still playing the German, French-man, or Englishman, the other with open effrontery comes out as the Jewish race.”

 

Comments on Ken Livingstone

Commenting on allegations that a senior Labour party source weakened and delayed Naz Shah’s apology, John Mann MP said:

 

“If true, this behaviour is outrageous. I have written to the General Secretary and the Leader's office demanding a full investigation. I have called for the person responsible to be sacked immediately should the allegations be proven.” 
 

“Whilst Naz Shah’s suspension is appropriate, she has already accepted culpability for what she has done. Jeremy Corbyn needs to take personal responsibility. He must either expel her as John McDonnell recommended in such cases or take our preferred option and ensure she attend a mandatory education programme with the Jewish community which should include a visit to Yad Vashem and Sderot”.

 

“Naz Shah’s initial unredacted statement, in particular her comments that “we on the left must stop procrastinating and tackle oppression within our own ranks, especially anti-Jewish oppression,” are appropriate and welcome.”
