Why we oppose the EHRC report

Conference Notes

1.    That Keir Starmer and David Evans have outlawed all discussion on the EHRC Report.

2.    Those falling foul of this rule, including former leader Jerem Corbyn, have been suspended or expelled.

3.    We note that the EHRC Report redefines the definition of harassment in the Equality Act 2010 to include political speech that other people don’t like!

4.    That the EHRC deliberately refused to look at the evidence in Labour’s Leaked Report on the grounds that it wasn’t ‘proportionate’.

5.    That the EHRC singled out 3 victims – Chris Williamson, Ken Livingstone and Pam Bromley. The EHRC backed down when Chris threatened them with legal action. Instead they targeted Ken and Pam.

Conference Resolves:

1.    To reject the EHRC Report in its entirety.

2.    Reject the proposal for outside interference in the disciplinary affairs of the Labour Party. In particular we reject the so-called ‘Anti-Semitism Advisory Panel.’ We note that the Board of Deputies and the JLM have been give veto powers over its membership. This is tantamount to giving the Israeli state a direct stake in how the Labour Party is run.

3.    It is irrelevant if parts of the Report are favourable to us (e.g. the right to know one’s accusers)

4.    It is a principle that a state body has no right to interfere in the internal affairs of a political party. Therein lies the road to a police  state.

5.    The EHRC is, as Jeremy Corbyn stated in an interview with Labour last on 1 June 2020, ‘part of the government machine’.

6. Even David Isaac, the Chair of the EHRC stated in respect of the new Commissioners that Liz Truss has appointed that ‘she doesn’t say ‘they’re going to do my bidding’, but it’s pretty implicit in what she’s saying.’ [Guardian 18.1.21.]

7.    We wish Ken Livingstone and Pam Bromley success in their bid to judicially review the EHRC Report and reject accusations of anti-Semitism against both of them.

8.    We note that Keir Starmer deliberately refused to send Labour’s Leaked Report to the EHRC and paid off the right-wing staff (‘whistleblowers’) in order to ensure that they were not held to account for their sabotage of the Labour Party.
