Christine Shawcroft, Labor Party party officials, at the center of a bitter public dispute over anti-Semitism among its members, has left the party council with immediate effect.
Shawcroft's place on the National Executive Committee (NEC) is now Comedy and activist Eddie Izzard, who vainly advocated a seat on the committee in January, took him on the road.
She said in a statement, "It is clear that my continued membership in the NEC is a distraction for the party and an excuse for the endless intrusive harassment of the media by myself, my family, and my friends."
"I affirm my total opposition to anti-Semitism and my disgust for denying the Holocaust, and I support all measures to address this within the party. I assure all my energy to secure the Labor government under Jeremy Corbyn for our country, which needs it.
Shawcroft was intensively scrutinized when she stated that she stood as party leader for the resumption of a party member in a Facebook post referred to a report he claimed that the murder of six million Jews in the Holocaust was "a hoax"
The member, Alan Bull, from the Peterborough branch party, told the BBC that he shared the (1
In another post, Bull said that Labor politicians Robin Cook and John Smith of the Israeli Mossad was killed and Bull was suspended
Shawcroft wrote in an infamous e-mail that she was worried that Bull would be suspended for "a Facebook post that was taken out of context and allegedly intended to show anti-Semitism" Shawcroft admitted this week that she had written that defense of Bull without the rage having seen lar items. She resigned from the conciliation committee, but appeared to be shouting to leave the NEC.
The story intensified after Jewish demonstrators and sympathizers – including several Labor MPs – condemned anti-Semitism within the party in Parliament Square
Corbyn said in a statement, like the series set up earlier this week, "We acknowledge that anti-Semitism has taken place in pockets within the Labor Party. "
Shawcroft then may have sealed her fate on Facebook by writing in a Facebook post that the series was "teased to attack Jeremy, as we all know," and reflects the feelings of other Corbyn loyalists ,
Shawcroft said she would remain a staunch Labor activist, but questions could be in the next few days about her future as director of the Corbyn support campaign, Momentum.
Richard Angell, director of Progress, Labor's center-left movement, said:
"It's welcome that Christine Shawcroft came to the conclusion that her actions mean she's not Their continued presence prevented Labor from having any credibility in anti-Semitism
"But it's not about individuals or groups of parties; it's about a lazy culture that needs to grow in Labor and be eradicated. A special meeting of the NEC is urgently needed to develop a series of measures that can reverse the relationship between Labor and Britain's Jewish community and make it clear to the Jew-haters and Holocaust deniers that they are not welcome in Labor.
