In a graceless, bureaucratic letter, Sam Matthews, Labour’s Head of Disputes “lifted” Glyn’s suspension. There was neither apology nor even a hint of what Glyn was supposed to have said on social media.
Nevertheless, this is a victory for all those who protested against Glyn’s suspension. (Our protest statement appeared in the Campaigns section of this website on February 10.) Let us hope the speed of the climb-down indicates the end of the Labour Party trying to use unsubstantiated allegations of antisemitism to intimidate opponents of Israeli policies.
