COUNTDOWN’S Rachel Riley has strike out during a Labour councillor who joked about “Jew process” in a meeting.
Labour Wirral Councillor Jo Bird, who says she is Jewish, was allegedly available observant that anti-Jewish injustice was given some-more “privilege” than other forms of injustice and pronounced it was “bad for a many, as good as bad for a Jews”.
The play on Jeremy Corbyn’s “for a many, not a few” aphorism was applauded and sparked delight during a Manchester assembly final year, audio leaked to a Jewish Chronicle revealed.
Ms Bird, who is a member of a pro-Corbyn Jewish Voice for Labour Group, called for Labour to “pause” disciplinary hearings into anti-Semitism “until a due routine has been established”.
Then she added: “It’s what we call a Jew process” that captivated laughter.
She also shielded Ken Livingstone who was dangling by a celebration for his comments about Hitler and Zionism.
And she altered a obvious poem about a Holocaust, saying: “They came for a anti-zionists, and we stood adult given we was not a target, we stood adult in solidarity.
“And afterwards they came for a socialists though they couldn’t get us given we were carrying a party, a Labour Party.”
It’s accepted she has now been dangling from a Labour celebration tentative an investigation.
But Countdown horde Rachel Riley, who has been pelted with abuse by trolls online for vocalization out opposite anti-Semitism, took to Twitter to impact her remarks.
She said: “Absolutely horrified listening to JVL’s Jo Bird, take a poem about a Holocaust, mislay a Jews, to reinstate them with harm of anti-racists and anti-Zionists.
“But don’t worry, they couldn’t get them as they were “too bustling carrying a celebration – a Labour Party”.
And she added: “This is over a fun and it’s deeply worrying.”
Chris Williamson, who has given been dangling from a party, was also a orator during a event, along with booted ex-Labour member Marc Wadsworth.
Listen to a recording, there’s more… and notice a delight and acclaim to these stomach branch comments, and afterwards tell me there’s no institutional problem of antisemitism in a Labour Party.
It’s over a fun and it’s deeply worrying.https://t.co/WTxIfhbEja

A Labour Party orator said: “The Labour Party takes all complaints of antisemitism intensely severely and we are committed to severe and campaigning opposite it in all a forms. All complaints about antisemitism are entirely investigated in line with a manners and procedures and any suitable disciplinary movement is taken.”
Meanwhile, yesterday Labour’s Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell certified a celebration DID have a problem with anti-Semitism and they contingency “atone” for it.
