Labour MP Siobhain Mcdonagh: “to be anti-capitalism is to be anti-semitic”

In an interview on BBC Radio 4 this morning, Labour MP for Mitcham and Morden, Siobhain McDonagh, made the link between anti-capitalists and anti-semitism. When asked if the Labour party are taking anti-semitism seriously, she replied:

“I’M NOT SURE THAT SOME PEOPLE IN THE LABOUR PARTY CAN, BECAUSE IT’S VERY MUCH PART OF THEIR POLITICS – OF HARD LEFT POLITICS – TO BE AGAINST CAPITALISTS, AND TO SEE JEWISH PEOPLE AS THE FINANCERS OF CAPITAL”

She was then asked: “In other words, to be anti-capitalist you have to be anti-semitic?”
