Peers’ vote of ‘no-confidence’ in Corbyn called off | The SKWAWKBOX

Anti-Semitic: Lady Hayter.

It seems more level heads have prevailed over those Labour peers in the House of Lords who thought it would be a good idea to hold a vote of no confidence (VONC) in Jeremy Corbyn.

Perhaps the peers who advocated the vote have realised that, with 179 Labour representatives in the Upper Chamber, they might not get the result they wanted.

According to Skwawkbox, it seems a vote in support of sacked peer Dianne Hayter may still take place.

This still seems off-colour. Lady Hayter compared Mr Corbyn’s leadership to the “bunker mentality” in the “last days of Hitler”.

A Labour spokesperson rightly responded that this was “grossly insensitive to Jewish staff in particular.”

Indeed. Some would call it anti-Semitic.

It seems entirely likely that the VONC was called off because of this double-standard – that peers would be claiming anti-Semitism against Mr Corbyn by supporting an anti-Semitic statement by one of their own.

So how can they be still contemplating a debate and vote in her support?
