Letter to the Leader of Haringey Council on anti-Semitism within Haringey Labour

Following the release of the EHRC report into anti-Semitism within the Labour Party, the Lib Dem Leader of the Opposition in Haringey, Cllr Luke Cawley-Harrison asked the Leader of Haringey Council if he accepted the EHRC's findings and agreed with Keir Starmer's comments on the report, and cited specific examples from within the Haringey Labour Council Group of comments that the both the EHRC Report and the Leader of the Labour Party have indicated are unacceptable.

In response Cllr Ejiofor said he was unaware of such comments made by members of his group, and therefore Cllr Cawley-Harrison has written to the Leader of the Council with the examples given and calling for action. You can view the exchange here (please move the video to the 1hr 43min 40sec mark).

Haringey Liberal Democrats will not tolerate any form of racism within Haringey Council, whether from elected members or elsewhere, and hope the Leader of the Council will take swift action in the same vein.

The letter is reproduced in full below:

But the Labour-run council want to put an end to this, and are planning on rolling out charges on all of the borough's council tennis courts, with some court charges starting in just a matter of weeks. This is all happening with little public awareness and no engagement.
