LABOUR HYPOCRISY: Lammy Threatened With Deselection But Reports Leave EU To Police
David Lammy, Labour MP for Tottenham, is facing a battle to save his seat. In a display of just how crass and increasingly rabid the Labour membership has become, members of Tottenham Labour Party are trying to organise his deselection for the ‘crime’ of attending a protest called by the Jewish Board Of Deputies to highlight the issue of Labour’s shortcomings in dealing with antisemitism within its ranks.
In the Tottenham Labour Party Members Only Facebook Group, Labour members attacked Mr Lammy, accusing him of joining “far-right” attacks on Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and of being “against free speech” for people who “criticise Zionism”.
One member wrote:
I want a candidate in the next election who wants Labour to win, not one who joins the extreme right-wing attacks on the Labour movement. He can be triggered in December if we haven’t had an election by then.
You would think your job being under threat by opponents of free speech would give you a new respect for the value of free expression. However, this is clearly not the case as Mr Lammy has reported Leave.EU and leading Brexiteers to the Metropolitan Police for ‘inciting religious and racial hatred’:
Hate speech is a crime. I am reporting you to the police. @BorisJohnson @michaelgove @Nigel_Farage and all people that voted to Leave on June 23rd 2016 must condemn this immediately and unequivocally. This is absolutely disgusting. https://t.co/yfDZlKsKen

Is it any wonder that Labour can’t be bothered to deal with the disgusting antisemitism in their party when they are so reliant on the votes of Britain’s exploding Muslim population? It’s a question of maths for these people, not justice!

Obviously, his experience with his local Party has taught Mr Lammy nothing.
