A senior Labour Party official who was suspended after attacking Tom Watson over his “Jewish donors” has been readmitted to the party.

A senior Labour Party official who was suspended after attacking Tom Watson over his “Jewish donors” has been readmitted to the party.

George McManus, who served on Labour’s National Policy Forum, compared the party’s deputy leader to Judas after he called on Labour to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of antisemitism.

The Momentum-backed official posted on Facebook:

“Watson received £50,000+ from Jewish donors. At least Judas only got 30 pieces of silver.”

He was suspended by Labour and later deleted the post. This morning McManus announced on Twitter that his suspension has been lifted.

The news comes the day after Jeremy Corbyn promised to “draw a line” under Labour’s antisemitism row and work with the Jewish community to “eradicate” it from the party.

The conference itself was marked by the surprise presence of several figures who have faced disciplinary action over antisemitic statements they made, including supposedly expelled member Marc Wadsworth.
