McNicol refuses to
discipline JLM’s Ella Rose, who threatened to ‘take out’
Jackie Walker

Ella Rose’s threats – ‘understandable’ according to crooked McNicol
Iain ‘crooked’ McNicol turned a blind eye to threats of violence from Zionist Rose

 On
20th January I submitted a letter
of complaint
to Iain McNicol, Labour’s crooked General Secretary concerning
the threats of violence by Ella Rose of the Jewish Labour Movement against Jackie
Walker.  Jackie was suspended in September
2016 for ‘anti-Semitism’ after having been fitted up by the JLM after a ‘training
session’ on ‘anti-Semitism’ at the Labour Party Annual Conference.

Unsurprisingly,
despite receiving a formal acknowledgment, I received no other response from our
crooked friend.  So I have sent him a second
letter
.
The
idea that a group which is affiliated to the Israeli Labour Party is in any
position to run anti-racist training is itself the height of parody.  It’s like asking a wife beater to run a woman’s
refuge or appointing Count Dracula as head of the blood transfusion
service! 
Jim Kennedy of Unite obtained the solicitor’s letter
The
ILP’s leader Isaac Herzog is
no slouch when it comes to racism.  Herzog recently declared that his nightmare was waking up to
find that Israel had a Palestinian Prime Minister and 61 Palestinian Members of
Israel’s Knesset .  Who needs the Right when we have Isaac Herzog?  Herzog also recently declared that he wanted to dispel
the false impression that the ILP were ‘Arab Lovers’ Herzog slammed for remark about ‘Arab lovers’.  To gauge the full import of these remarks just consider that someone had
said their nightmare was to wake up and find Britain had a Jewish Prime
Minister or that the Labour Party was not a ‘Jew lovers’ party.  The term ‘Jew lover’ and ‘N***** Lover’ used
to be part of the language of the National Front and BNP.  The fact that it trips off the tongue of the
head of Israeli Labour should be an indication of what Zionism and the JLM are really
about.
Jackie
and a number of other Jewish and non-Jewish anti-racists attended the JLM’s ‘training
session’ which was secretly recorded and comments made by Jackie were twisted
and distorted to make it appear that her comments were ‘anti-Semitic’.  You can read what it was that Jackie said here.
Last
summer, when Jeremy Corbyn was standing for leader, McNicol was arranging the
suspension of thousands of Labour Party members on the most bogus of pretexts
such as someone posting that they liked the ‘fucking foo fighters’.  A
hint of the word scab, traitor etc was guaranteed to get you suspended.  But when the JLM’s Director, the racist Ella
Rose, threatened physical violence against a much older Black woman, she is
pardoned by crooked Iain McNicol.

This
is not, of course the first time Crooked McNicol has been accused of, well,
being a crook.  In July 2016 McNicol was
busy attempting to fix the Labour Party elections in order to ensure that Corbyn
was kept off the ballot paper.  Unfortunately
Corbyn, when he was re-elected leader, didn’t call for the dismissal of McNicol
because of his treacherous and dishonest behaviour.  I use the word ‘dishonest’ advisedly.
Solicitors letter to Crooked McNicol saying he deliberately deceived Corbyn & McDonnell
In
a solicitor’s letter sent
on 11th July on behalf of Jim Kennedy of UNITE, McNicol was accused
of ‘bad faith’.  It accused him of having gone to ‘great lengths to conceal your intentions
from the leader and the Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer’.
  It informed him that as General Secretary ‘you have an obligation to uphold the rules
of the Labour Party and not breach them .’
  
It said his behaviour in leaking information to the Press which he had
kept from Jeremy Corbyn was a ‘potentially
serious disciplinary matter.’
  It
went on to say that ‘You have an obligation
as General Secretary to act in good faith’
and to act openly and
transparently.  In particular the letter
said that the National Committee meeting, which agreed that Corbyn could stand,
had been called in a manner which ‘has
all the hallmarks of anything but “open democracy.” 

A warning to McNicol not to think about destroying 
The
letter expressed its fears that the meeting had been called “to manufacture a situation whereby Jeremy
Corbyn’s name will be omitted from the leadership ballot.
’  The letter went on to effectively accuse
McNicol of fraud.  It said that despite
obtaining advice from barristers Mark Henderson and Michael Mansfield QC that Corbyn’s
name must be on the ballot paper, McNicol had tried to hide this advice from
the NEC.  The letter threatened
injunctive action against McNicol and warned him that the ‘destruction, deletion or concealment of relevant evidence is a very
serious matter for the courts.
’ 
The
NEC meeting which voted narrowly, by 16-14 to include Corbyn’s name on the
ballot paper also disenfranchised 130,000 new members of the Labour Party.  Undoubtedly Crooked McNicol was party to this
too and the letter also asked him who was instructing him to carry out his
devious behaviour.  The answer to this is
the devious Right-winger Tom Watson, Corbyn’s treacherous deputy.  Watson’s behaviour reminds one  of Oscar Wilde’s comment that he has every
quality of a dog except loyalty.
Solicitor’s letter saying they don’t trust Crooked McNicol’s intentions
Thirteen Jewish female members of the Labour Party have called for a
review of a decision by general secretary Iain McNicol on a complaint brought
against former Israeli Embassy employee Ella Rose, who now heads a pro-Israel
lobby group affiliated to the Labour Party, the Jewish Labour Movement (JLM).
They say
Ella Rose’s abusive and threatening behaviour, caught on camera in a
documentary film, The Lobby, is intimidating to them as
campaigners for Palestinian rights and critics of the state of Israel.
Solicitor’s letter to Crooked McNicol reminding him of the obligation to act in good faith
The
swift, discrete and sympathetic handling
of Rose’s case
contrasts markedly with treatment meted out to many party
members who have been unjustly charged with antisemitism, suspended
from membership and subjected to months’ long investigations, often in the full
glare of publicity, through processes with scant regard for principles of
natural justice…..
….
We do not
believe you and your team have demonstrated the impartiality that members of
the party have the right to expect and we will therefore be contacting members
of the National Executive Committee and the National Constitutional Committee
to ask for a review of your inadequate investigation.

Iain ‘Crooked’ McNicol
General Secretary
The Labour Party
Southside,
105 Victoria Street
London SW1E 6QT
Dear Mr
McNicol,
I
submitted a complaint to you
by email on 20th January concerning threats
of violence
made by Ella Rose, the Director of the Jewish
Labour Movement.  The threats were made
against Jackie Walker, a Black-Jewish member of the Labour Party who has been
suspended since last September on bogus charges of anti-Semitism and whose
investigation hearing has yet to take place. 
Despite receiving an automatic acknowledgment of my email, I have not
yet had a response to my letter…..
….
Your
decision to rush through an ‘investigation’ of Ms Rose when I have been
suspended for 11 months already is entirely understandable in the circumstances.
Kind
regards as always,
Tony
Greenstein
