Another area with high Jewish population increases Labour vote – this one by 15%

Prestwich in Greater Manchester, where Sedgley voted overwhelmingly for Labour this week

As the SKWAWKBOX published this afternoon, the mainstream media has wasted no opportunities to link the local election result in Barnet to perceived antisemitism in the Labour Party – but Lobley Hill and Bensham ward in Gateshead, which has a high percentage of Jewish residents, increased its vote for Labour by thirteen points to almost 63% – and almost doubled its actual number of Labour votes.

Sedgley Park ward in the north-west town of Prestwich in Greater Manchester also has a large Jewish community. It went even further than Lobley Hill and Bensham – increasing its Labour vote by fifteen points compared to the last election in the ward in 2016.

Again, this information has been conspicuous only by its absence from the mainstream media narrative – even from the BBC News channel, with its supposed impartiality obligations.

Reports on the Barnet – where Labour’s vote also increased, though only by just under three points – would at least mention other possible reasons for the result if they wished to present a genuinely impartial stance or any journalistic integrity.

  1. Hey Skwawkbox,

    Sometime next week Jess Phillips is guesting on Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff. The website gives no details of which day.

    Therefore we need Skwawkbox-ers who are free in the mornings (9.15-11.15) to be ready to phone in and give her an off-topic hard time. A hastily created on-topic question (topics announced at the top of the show) will be needed to get past the phone jockey and onto the air.

    It may be worth Skwawkbox’s time to make a special post promoting this idea (if you’re in agreement) before Monday morning…

    • Oh God! It’s Monday and the main topic on The Wright Stuff in about 10 mins is “Is the Labour party under Corbyn going nowhere?”. On the panel is… Wes Streeting?!?!

      To be fair on Matthew Wright, he’s decided to absent himself today. Make of that what you will…

  2. Adam Langleben, Chair of national executive of JLM lost his seat in Barnet. So were people voting against antisemitism or against the Blairite JLM?

  3. “Reports on the Barnet – where Labour’s vote also increased, though only by just under three points – would at least mention other possible reasons for the result if they wished to present a genuinely impartial stance or any journalistic integrity”

    Well, they are hardly going to do that, are they?
