People found Michael Gove’s response to Labour antisemitism hypocritical – 9 swift comebacks

The release on Thursday of a report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission into antisemitism in the Labour Party saw a bowling ball smash through the party’s skittles.

As well as the report stating that Labour had broken the law on several counts, Jeremy Corbyn‘s reaction included these words:

“One antisemite is one too many, but the scale of the problem was also dramatically overstated for political reasons by our opponents inside and outside the party, as well as by much of the media.”

This was judged to be an indication of him not accepting the report’s findings and the Labour whip was withdrawn, pending an enquiry.

Of course, this was very divisive, setting different Labour factions at each other’s throats, so it was hardly surprising that Conservative commentators would seize the opportunity to condemn their opponents, including this public display of concern from Michael Gove.

His intervention went down about as well as you’d expect. These reactions have it covered.

Twitter’s favourite intentional Michael Gove parody had something to add.

The real Gove has yet to respond to that, presumably as he’s too busy following up on his party’s promise to investigate Islamophobia within its ranks.
