Elected: Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi

A co-founder of the much-maligned organisation for Jewish people in the Labour Party, Jewish Voice for Labour, has been elected to the party’s National Executive Committee.

Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi’s achievement is all the more remarkable because she had once been suspended from the party altogether, for allegedly supporting claims that accusations of anti-Semitism had been “weaponised”.

Here’s JVL’s press release:

We are delighted that our Media Officer, Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, has been elected to Labour’s National Executive Committee.

Naomi stood on the GrassRoots5 slate, backed by 13 left organisations including JVL. We congratulate the three other members of the slate, Jess Barnard, Gemma Bolton and Yasmine Dar on their election, but regret that Mish Rahman sadly didn’t get re-elected. We thank everyone who voted for the GrassRoots5. The coalition of 13 groups worked very well together and we hope there is scope for more collaboration in the future.

Naomi’s phenomenal campaigning activities, focusing on the issues facing working class people, and her solid support for striking workers, filled social media with energy and enthusiasm. JVL’s reputation for defending members’ rights and for opposing all forms of racism will also have been a factor in her favour for many of those members who have not been expelled or suspended or left in despair.

The hard work begins now. Naomi and her CLP and trade union comrades on the NEC will have a fight on their hands defending the left wing policies that had won so much support. As she argued throughout the campaign, radical measures are needed to end the cost of living crisis and defend workers’ rights and living standards. There’s also a job of work to be done to resist the divisions that are being propagated by the Tories and, regrettably, by some amongst the Leadership of the Labour Party. That will mean continuing to make the case for a democratic party that values its members and respects their right to freedom of expression.

And here’s a video clip in which she discusses herself and her views:

      What do you mean? Are you expressing surprise at Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi being elected to Labour’s NEC when it is so closely allied to such Israeli politicians as run Likud? Or are you suggesting that her election makes Labour closer to Likud?

      You’d be justified by the former but absolutely wrong in the latter case.

    So… any further fatuous excuse to keep Corbyn in purgatory is now inexplicable?
    Rhetorical question obviously.
