Labour peer Lord Ahmed suspended after blaming imprisonment on 'Jewish conspiracy

You do see a lot of blustering from Labour supporters and members etc. about how the tories are rubbish and they would be great. I just wonder what their spin on this person will be then. Kind of makes the Lib Dems latest position a walk in the park after you read some of this Lord's comments.


A Labour peer who blamed his imprisonment on a "Jewish conspiracy" was suspended by the party today.

Lord Ahmed, who was jailed in 2009 for dangerous driving after he was found to have been sending text messages before his car was involved in a fatal crash, claims that pressure was placed on the courts by Jews "who own newspapers and TV channels" to exact punishment more severe than the offence warranted.
He said that his "Jewish friends" were opposed to his visit to Gaza to support the Palestinian cause and that Jewish-owned media organisations pressured the courts because of this.

So will we see high profile Labour figures coming out and condemning this person?

This is what they have said so far and I am sure they will say we can't say any more until it is all investigated. (great smokescreen tactics) 

Following publication of the remarks in The Times today, a Labour spokesman said: "The Labour Party deplores and does not tolerate any sort of anti-Semitism. Following reports in The Times today we are suspending Lord Ahmed pending an investigation."

Will the Opposition run with this? It's an open goal....
