Are you accusing him of being an anti-Semite? I think there is a lot of confusion between not being supportive of the Israeli government's stance against their Palestinian population and being anti-Semitic.

As for him being an entryist, that's par for the course in St Ann's.

If you google him, you'll find some articles in Jewish newspapers that aren't particularly supportive of him.  They is also an article about how Haringey Labour were trying to avoid letting Jewish people participate as they held a vote on Shabbat.

The story about trying to stop Jewish members of the Labour Party voting is complete nonsense. Tottenham Labour Party organised a meeting where Labour Party members could vote which of the leadership candidates they wanted the Tottenham party to give their backing too (not to vote for them in the leadership election which was completely seperate). After it was organised someone complained that because it was on Shabbat, some party members wouldn't be able to participate and the meeting was cancelled. End of story. Stuff like this gets trumpeted about and embellished with each telling.

That was the one - the meeting was called for a Saturday meaning Orthodox Jewish members couldn't attend.  I think it's fair enough for them to be pissed off about it.  It's thoughtless if nothing else.  I have no opinion on Noah Tucker at all, it's just that that is what comes up if you google him. 

Of course it's right that people feel pissed off if they are unable to participate but the suggestion in the story (and versions of it that are flying around) is that is was deliberate which is simply not true.

300,000 people have joined (or in many cases re-joined) the labour party in the last year, are you smearing them by saying that they are entryists, that they have just joined because they enjoy a rally and worst of all that they are anti-semitic. This is no better than the Daily Mail smears.

It does not matter how long you have been in the Labour Party once you become a member everyone is equal and maybe 300,000+ people would like a Labour Party with real socialist policies rather than Tory light.

You are completely wrong.
The new councillor , Noah Tucker, has lived in St Ann's Ward for over 19 years and has been a local activist and a trades unionist.
TimP: Your remarks border on a smear.

I wouldn't worry too much about Mr P. The important bit on HoL to prevent the "newspaper title" effect is to get the tweeted content (the title and first few words) anodyne and objective. A good example would be this post. Then we get into the delicious debatery that this is.

I would also point out that there is a committee that you have to be vetted by to become a councillor candidate and given their rather harsh treatment of a local youth activist in Haringey when it came to this "vetting", I can't imagine Mr Tucker is any form of financial entryist like a certain local businessman I could name.

I had never heard of him before this election.

Your point is? Would you like them to put up only famous people or something?
There is not a shred of anti semitism in Momentum. What there is, is people fed up with Israels crimes being overlooked. That is the real agenda here.

I didn't realise/remember the vote was yesterday until I walked past my polling station on the way to pick up my daughter from school, a fortuitous reminder.
