Labour MP John Mann warned on Thursday that Holocaust revisionism remains a problem in the party.
The MP for Bassetlaw spoke during a debate on Holocaust Memorial Day this afternoon, telling parliament: “Holocaust revisionism is a problem all over Europe. It’s a problem in my political party.
“It’s a problem in this country. It’s a problem that we are not facing up to sufficiently robustly or successfully.”
Mann, a frequent critic of Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour leadership’s handling of the party’s anti-semitism crisis, also defended Rachel Riley after the Channel 4 Countdown presenter faced a torrent of abuse on social media for expressing her opposition to comments by the Labour leadership.
Mr Mann said: “That’s why Rachel Riley is getting all the c*** she’s getting at the moment.”
Riley took to Twitter to thank Mr Mann for his support, saying: “Thank you @JohnMannMP for your decades spent working on what you believe is right, including against antisemitism.”
