Foster’s Nazi comparison is inflammatory

Vice President Marie van der Zyl has commented on an article written by Labour donor  Michael Foster in which he compared Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership team to Nazis.

Marie said: “We have often made the point that Nazi and Holocaust comparisons are inflammatory and should be avoided in political discourse. The same is true in this case. However, many in the community are deeply concerned at some of the language and behaviour being exhibited by some members of the Labour Party. The Party certainly has a very steep hill to climb if it is to regain the community’s trust after the integrity of the Chakrabarti inquiry has been so called in to question.”
