Activist attended Labour conference while under investigation over hate post

Kayla Bibby 'to undergo antisemitism training'


A Labour activist who was being investigated by the party for alleged antisemitism was allowed to attend their conference in September.

Kayla Bibby, 33, who represented the Liverpool Riverside constituency at the event, posted an image on Facebook in March showing the Statue of Liberty being smothered by an alien with the Star of David on its back. She wrote below the image: “The most accurate photo I’ve seen all year!” 



The image had been taken from a far-right website, Incogman, where it had been used to illustrate an article that portrayed Jews as “parasitic” and said they were to blame for “financial heists of entire nations”.

Ms Bibby had been under investigation by the party for more than three months over the post when she attended the conference.

At the Labour conference in Liverpool, party leader Jeremy Corbyn said in his keynote speech he hoped to “draw a line under” the party’s antisemitism crisis.

According to Labour, she has since been found “guilty” by the party and will receive antisemitism training.

Ms Bibby has been contacted for comment.
