Two thoughts on Chris Williamson

First, what the (at time of writing) Labour MP Chris Williamson has said about his earlier comments regarding anti-Semitism, doesn’t really count an apology. That is because:

Second, this latest ugly incident is a reminder to people in all parties about how important it is to have effective complaints and disciplinary processes. That’s particularly relevant to the Liberal Democrats, as we’re still working through reforming – and greatly improving – our own processes. That’s a piece of work in progress, and very much needs to become a piece of work completed later this year.

P.S. Who were cheering on Chris Williamson when he made the remarks so outrageous that even Jeremy Corbyn conceded he should be suspended?

Labour activists in Sheffield.

What would they really dislike? Losing yet more council seats to the Lib Dems in May.
