Labour MP repeatedly refuses question on Long-Bailey’s sacking

Claudia Webbe, Labour MP for Leicester East, repeatedly refused to say if Rebecca Long-Bailey’s action in sharing an interview with Maxine Peake was anti-semitic.

Ms Long-Bailey was sacked from her post as shadow education secretary after retweeting an interview with the actor and Labour supporter which contained an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.

Speaking to 5 Live’s Emma Barnett, Ms Webbe said Rebecca Long-Bailey has “made it clear that she did not endorse” the entirety of views in an Independent article she tweeted out.
