Yesterday, the SKWAWKBOX published the names of six Labour MPs that had disappeared from the list of Labour Friends of Israel’s (LFI) parliamentary supporters, after parliamentary sources told this blog that MPs had been removed after saying they were listed without consent.
The list missing the six names was an old list left in place by LFI, which the group has now replaced with a similarly-titled article.
However, one name has been removed from the list: Welsh MP and Welsh Labour’s deputy leader Carolyn Harris.
Sources close to Ms Harris have confirmed that she asked to be removed because she had not previously realised she had been included.
Fellow MPs Tulip Siddiq and Catherine West were removed form the supporters’ list in the wake of LFI’s widely-condemned statement regarding last week’s massacre of unarmed Palestinians in Gaza.
LFI has been contacted for comment.
