Far-right Griffin encourages Corbyn to 'expel all these pro-Zionist traitors'

The former BNP leader tweeted his 'advice' over the Williamson affair, adding Labour could become a 'clean, radical party'


Nick Griffin, the ex-leader of the far-right British National Party, has offered his advice to Jeremy Corbyn over Chris Williamson's readmission to Labour.

Tweeting a link to a Daily Mail story about the controversy surrounding Mr Williamson’s re admission to the party Mr Griffin wrote: “Word of advice to #JeremyCorbyn - if #BorisJohnson delivers #Brexit , Labour will be crushed anyway.

“If the Tories flunk it, you'll be in power anyway. So just expel all these pro-Zionist traitors and at least have a clean, radical party.”

Mr Williamson, the MP for Derby North, was suspended from the party in February after video footage emerged of him suggesting that the Labour party had been “too apologetic” on the issue of antisemitism, the latest in a long line of incidents involving the MP which had angered the Jewish community.

The MP was reinstated with a formal warning on Wednesday after a three-person panel decided to reject a recommendation by party officials to refer him to the next stage of Labour’s disciplinary process.

More than 100 Labour MPs and peers have urged Mr Corbyn to “show leadership” on the issue and remove the whip from Mr Williamson.

In 2018 Mr Corbyn received the approval Mr Griffin who defended him for stating that “Zionists” don’t understand English irony.
