Gillian Merron, Chief Executive of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said:

“The dismissive video was a ‘slap in the face’ for the Jewish community. Having spoken directly to Campaign Director Jon Lansman, the Jeremy for Labour campaign now recognises the inappropriate message conveyed and has committed to remove the video and apologise. This is the right result.

“It has been a bruising year for relations between the Labour Party and the Jewish community. Whatever the result of the leadership election on Saturday, we will continue to demand that antisemitism is opposed across our politics with the requisite force and conviction.”
