Pass your gaze across the following:
Two more Labour councillors have been suspended over allegations of anti-Semitism as the party crisis deepens ahead of tomorrow’s crucial elections.
It brings the number of Labour members suspended for anti-Semitism and racism since Jeremy Corbyn took over as leader to 18.
Newport councillor Miqdad Al-Nuaimi and Renfrewshire councillor Terry Kelly have both been suspended by the party pending an investigation.
In the latest case, disclosed on the Guido Fawkes website, Mr Al-Nuaimi used tweets to compare Israel to the Nazis and to make connections between Israel and so-called IS.
Mr Kelly used his blog to speak out about the “Jewish lobby” in the US, claiming it influenced foreign policy and even tried to rig the Oscars.
Now – have you already decided whether Miqdad Al-Nuaimi and Terry Kelly committed the offences for which they have been accused?
In the light of the “anti-Semitism” witch-hunt that’s going on at the moment, it’s a very important question.
We haven’t seen any evidence yet – and considering the accusations have come from Guido Fawkes, it seems likely to be very flimsy.
The important thing to remember is that guilt must be proved and cannot be assumed.
