Jackie Walker has been expelled from the Labour Party The Guardian reports:
The former vice-chair of Momentum Jackie Walker has been expelled from the Labour party for comments at an antisemitism training session, in one of the longest-running high-profile cases of the party’s antisemitism crisis.
Walker was suspended more than two years ago after the training session, where she criticised Holocaust Memorial Day for only commemorating Jewish victims.

Since the above she has gone on various rants attacking Jewish communal organisations she also runs the Labour Against the Witchhunt group which passed a motion at its recent AGM arguing:
The self proclaimed victim of a witch hunt has in fact been found to be a witch after all.
