Incredibly fourteen more MPs have signed Nadia Whittome’s antisemitic Jewbaiting EDM (I blogged yesterday about it).
Let’s look at the 27 MPs who have signed.
Only 8 signed Ann McDonagh MP’s letter to the Chinese Ambassador expressing outrage about China’s treatment of the Uighur Muslims.
16 of the 27 have a history of antisemitism (including support for antisemites) or of gross Israel-bashing.
17 of them have proportions of Muslim constituents above the national average of 4.5%
