Warning: the audio message below contains extreme, abusive language. Do not listen if you may find it triggering
Jenny Manson is the Chair of the left-wing Jewish group Jewish Voice for Labour. As a prominent voice refuting media claims that there is widespread antisemitism in the Labour Party, she is frequently the target of abuse – in many cases extreme.
Last week Ms Manson appeared on Newsnight and other media three times to discuss the issue of antisemitism in the Labour Party. On Saturday, the horrifying message below was left on her home phone:
The matter is being investigated by police. Ms Manson also received a similarly horrific email, though it is not yet known whether the same person is behind it.
The abuse is not limited to electronic media – Ms Manson told the SKWAWKBOX that she is frequently stopped in the street in her home area in London by individuals behaving aggressively as a result of her support for the Labour Party.
Last week another Jewish supporter of Jeremy Corbyn also received threats, which the Metropolitan Police Service is investigating. An update from the Met is awaited.
If you think you recognise the voice of the person who left the vile message, email details to firstname.lastname@example.org and the information will be forwarded to the police.
