Board of Deputies President: Chris Williamson must now be expelled by Labour

Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to the decision By Labour’s ruling National Executive Council not to allow Chris Williamson MP to stand for election as a Labour candidate in his Derby North constituency.

She said: “The NEC ruling to bar Chris Williamson MP from standing again in Derby North is the correct one. However this is not enough. Labour’s leadership must now stop dragging their feet and act immediately to expel from the party this disgraced politician who has baited the Jewish community for far too long.”
