Jeremy Newmark, who was rarely
out of the headlines, is exposed as a serial fraudster and someone who was
forced out of his previous job as Chief Executive Officer for the Jewish Leadership
Council. For five whole years the
reasons why he left the JLC were a closely kept secret. Apparently he resigned because of ill-health
but in fact he left because he was corrupt.
To date not one national newspaper has touched this story. Not the
Guardian nor the so-called Independent to say nothing of the tabloid press. Of course the BBC and Sky have remained aloof.
It is as if this story is too embarrassing to get in the way of the false anti-Semitism
First page of audit report in 2013
Jeremy Newmark began his career
in 2007 with the Jewish Leadership Council, which was then a collection of the
biggest capitalists in the Jewish community – Gerald Ronson, Stanley Kalms and
Sir Mickey Davies, who is now the Chief Executive of the Conservative Party but
who was then boss of the big mining company Xtrata.
It is a tale of fraud and
deception on an almost unbelievable scale involving thousands of pounds of
money stolen from the JLC, which for some reason was a charity despite its
overt support for Zionism and Israel. An
internal audit found clear evidence
of larceny and theft on a grand scale by Newmark, yet it decided to engage in a
wholesale cover up.
Just 3 weeks ago Newmark was leading the call to expel anti-racists from the Labour Party
Jeremy Newmark led the attack by the Jewish Labour
Movement, the British branch of the Israeli Labour Party on the Left in the Labour
Party. He demanded the scalps of Ken
Livingstone, Jackie Walker, Marc Wadsworth and myself amongst others. Thousands of people have been suspended by
the Labour Party, many as a result of false accusations of anti-Semitism, on
the flimsiest evidence possible, yet quite amazingly Labour’s General Secretary
Iain McNicol has ignored calls to suspend Newmark despite the copious evidence.
A copy of the internal audit which details the
alleged misappropriation of thousands of pounds of money can be seen here.
I am therefore proposing a letter signed by Labour
Party members which we will send to Iain McNicol and members of Labour’s
National Executive Committee demanding that Newmark be suspended pending
a full investigation of his alleged crimes.
If you wish to sign the letter below and you are a member
of the Labour Party please send your name, and which Constituency Labour Party you
are a member of to me at:
Mr Newmark, who until today was Chair of the Jewish Labour Movement was Labour’s
PPC at the recent General Election for Finchley and Golders Green constituency and
he is currently Leader of the Labour Group on Hertsmere Council. These allegations have been backed up by a comprehensive
internal audit by
the organisation for which Mr Newmark was Chief Executive Officer, the Jewish Leadership
We are extremely surprised that you haven’t
moved quickly to protect the reputation of the Labour Party by suspending Mr
Newmark under Rule 2.1.8 pending an investigation.
Mr Newmark, in his role as Chair of the JLM,
has been the driving force in the suspension or expulsion of people on the
grounds of ‘anti-Semitism’. Barely three
weeks ago Jeremy Newmark was publicly criticising the Labour Party for failing
to expel Jackie Walker, Ken Livingstone and other members on the grounds of ‘anti-Semitism’. Jewish
Labour group accuses party of failing to act on antisemitism complaints
Given the high public profile of Mr
Newmark and his propensity for demanding disciplinary action against other
members of the Labour Party we feel that it is only fair that Mr Newmark should
be treated in the same way as his many victims.
We are therefore making a formal complaint against Mr Newmark for having
brought the party into disrepute and we expect you to suspend him immediately from
membership in order that we can avoid further damaging headlines.
