  1. Just wonderful news. I saw their original posting on Twitter and then thought they sounded a brill bunch of people. Well done Unite.

  2. It heartening to see there’s a Jewish organisation whose Jewish members have the courage and conviction to stand up to such a powerful and influential, yet demonstrably devious body as the Jewish Labour Movement (JLM).

    Jewish Voice for Labour’s chair Jenny Manson says: JVL will work for those “unhappy with JLM’s claim, inherent in its name, to be the Jewish Labour Movement speaking for us all, when it does not reflect the diversity of Jewish views on the left and does not require its members to be Jewish or in the Labour Party”.
