Vox Political readers have delivered a resounding thumbs-down to hysteria being whipped up by the right-wing media and politicians about alleged anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

This Site asked whether readers thought Labour should continue to treat every claim of anti-Semitism as a hugely-damaging blow to the party – as certain prominent MPs and organisations like the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council have suggested.

Alternatively, I asked if it would be better for the party to put in place a process to weed out fake, frivolous or malicious claims and get on with fighting REAL anti-Semitism.

The result was clear within the first few minutes of the poll going up on April 2 – but I left it until today (April 7), just to be sure.

A towering 98.24 per cent of respondents – 4,515 voters – said Labour should implement a process to weed out fake, frivolous or malicious claims, and get on with fighting REAL anti-Semitism.

These thousands will, I hope, be encouraged by the fact that incoming Labour General Secretary Jennie Formby has been charged with doing exactly that – improving the party’s disciplinary system to ensure that only credible accusations are given the time of day.

And what of the 81 voters (1.76 per cent of respondents) who said every claim, no matter how unlikely, should be treated as a hugely damaging blow to Labour?

I am tempted to suggest those who supported this option include everybody who has made such comments in the press over the past few days…

But I think even 81 would be a gross inflation of their numbers.
