Statement on Ken Livingstone suspension

Following the decision by the Labour Party to suspend Ken Livingstone for a further year, Leader of the Barnet Labour Group, Cllr Barry Rawlings said:

"Ken Livingstone should have been expelled from the Labour Party following his offensive comments - suspension is merely a slap on the wrists.

"He continues to be in denial about the offense he has caused the Jewish community and the harm he has caused the Labour Party, and has shown no contrition about either.

"In making his comments Ken Livingstone was engaging in Holocaust revisionism and the Barnet Labour Group will support any and all measures to ensure he is expelled from the Labour Party.

"Barnet Labour will continue to fight anti-Semitism in all its forms."
