'Anti-semitism' claims dismissed by Redditch candidate Rebecca Jenkins

Ross Crawford 27th Nov, 2019

LABOUR’S General Election candidate Rebecca Jenkins has found herself caught up in an anti-semitism row.

It comes after a national newspaper included her in a list of ten Labour candidates accused of ‘blatant anti-semitism’.

However a spokesperson for Ms Jenkins, a school teacher who grew up in Redditch, dismissed the accusations.

They said: “This has all been thoroughly investigated by the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party which found nothing to preclude her standing as a candidate.”
