A Momentum member and youth club leader has been suspended from the Labour Party for making an antisemitic post.

Nick Robinson shared an image of a giant hand bedecked with a Star of David pushing down on small characters, drawn in a style associated with pre-WWII propaganda.

While the Loughton Youth Project leader argued it was a critique of in-fighting within the Labour Party, others saw it as propagating antisemitic stereotypes.

The posts – which also included one calling London Mayor Sadiq Khan a “Zionist establishment stooge” – were sent to the Labour Party last year, which subsequently suspended Mr Robinson pending investigation.

The Labour Party would not comment about Mr Robinson’s case, but said it was committed to fighting against all forms of antisemitism and that all reports are investigated fully.
