Rod Liddle suspended from Labour party for describing ‘antisemitism as visceral for many Muslims’

Rod Liddle has been suspended from the Labour Party for a blog post about antisemitism within the party.

The Labour Party confirmed the news to The Independent but said they could not comment on why he has been suspended. “Rod Liddle has been suspended from the Labour Party pending an investigation,” a spokesperson said.

The controversial British journalist, who is associate editor of The Spectator and former editor of BBC Radio Four’s Today Programme, said the party had cited the “language” in his 3 May blog post as the reason for his suspension but had not specified which bit of the piece they objected to.
