Board of Deputies calls for expulsion of Peter Willsman from the Labour Party

Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has called for the expulsion of Labour NEC member Peter Willsman, following his latest antisemitic outburst.

Marie said: “Peter Willsman – a man who should have been suspended for anti-Jewish statements last year – has not only denied antisemitism in the Labour Party but has resorted to a well-known antisemitic trope to make his point. We call on the Leader, Jeremy Corbyn and General Secretary, Jennie Formby, who were present at Mr Willsman’s first outburst and who have repeatedly indulged his bigotry, to ensure he is expelled with the speed and efficiency we have seen in other recent disciplinary cases.”
