Finchley and Golders Green Labour rejects antisemite

This week Finchley and Golders Green Labour Party voted to reject the membership of the antisemitic Daniel Margrain. As well as attacking parliamentary candidate Jeremy Newmark as “a hard-line Zionist and member of the Israel lobby who has lied about antisemitism”, Margrain also wrote of “the over-representation of Jews in the capitalist ruling class that gives the Israel-Zionist lobby it’s [sic] power”.

Good for Jeremy Newmark and the majority (44 – 18) who voted to reject Margrain’s membership. However, we have two serious questions.

1. Who were the 18 (well over a quarter of those present) who thought Mr Margrain a fit and proper person to be member of a self-proclaimed anti-racist party? and
2. If there are this many members who are OK with antisemitism in Finchley and Golders Green of all places, how deep does the rot go elsewhere?
