Thugs force MP Williamson to postpone speaking engagement

Speaking engagement: Chris Williamson at a previous event.

Chris Williamson, a Labour MP facing trumped-up charges of anti-Semitism, has been forced to change the venue of a speaking event in Brighton after thugs threatened hotel staff with violence and social media abuse.

He tweeted an email from the Holiday Inn, Brighton, which stated: “Over the past 24 hours, our hotel and employees have been subjected to abuse and threats from members of the public on the phone, on email and on social media outlets.

“We cannot allow our guests and employees to be put at potential harm and we will therefore have to cancel your booking.”

This Writer hopes the hotel has lodged a complaint with the police.

Mr Williamson tweeted that the meeting would go ahead at another location: “We will never allow thuggery and intimidation to stifle freedom of speech!”

Mr Williamson is to face a hearing before Labour’s National Constitutional Committee – the so-called “kangaroo court” that has expelled other members (including This Writer) on the basis of flimsy, nonsensical and trumped-up charges.

He has won the support of many Labour Party members, and also that of leading intellectual (and Jew) Noam Chomsky, who branded the accusations a “disgrace” and an “insult to the memory” of Holocaust victims.

    If these attacks are caused by extremists in a political party then that party should immediately remove them and bring criminal charges against them. Our forefathers fought a terrible war to remove this kind of politics. If there us no proof then anyone attacking another persons character should face charges and should also show their proof or be facing imprisonment. Enough is enough!

    A proper MP is he but the greedie ones in the party the blairites don’t want real labour MPs at all

  3. Tony

    Hope Not Hate called for him to be expelled when he was first suspended and has now endorsed the Panorama programme.

    A truly appalling lack of judgement.

    I will not donate to them again.

    Maybe decent British people don’t want to have anything to do with the socialism being spouted by many in the Labour Party. The uk is not a socialist country and never will be.

      Maybe you should provide information to support your claim. These “decent British people” you mention – who are they and how have they benefited from the many decades of Tory neoliberalism that has asset-stripped the UK to the point where there is almost nothing left? And why are you trying to suggest that socialism isn’t decent? If the UK isn’t a socialist country, is that because of interference from strongly right-wing news media? You’ll be aware that Labour’s policies are supported by a majority of the UK’s population – doesn’t this mitigate against your claims?

    Williamson is a anti semitic arse wipe, Mr NC a disgraced conspiracy theorist. And you sir are a anti semite too. The decent people of the UK will see to it that you anti semites will be driven out and prevented from spreading your poison.

      Looking at my article and your comment, I think we both know who’s trying to spread poison here. Don’t come back.
