The Jewish Labour Movement has told Labour representatives to “stay well clear” of members expelled over antisemitism after two MPs were reported to have joined a controversial meeting.
Ex-frontbenchers Diane Abbott and Bell Ribeiro-Addy discussed the future of the Labour left with expelled activists including Tony Greenstein and Jackie Walker, the Jewish Chronicle reported.
They were addressing a meeting of the newly formed ‘Don’t Leave, Organise’ group – made up of Red Labour, Jewish Voice for Labour and the Labour Representation Committee.
The new left-wing group launched earlier this month with the backing of former MP Laura Pidcock, the Bakers’ Union, former candidate for Labour’s national executive committee Jo Bird.
A spokesperson for JLM said: “If the Labour Party are going to be able to demonstrate that it has taken antisemitism and racism seriously, then it needs to show consistency.
