Labour peer Dianne Hayter – Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town – has been sacked from her front-bench position as a Brexit spokesperson after making comments comparing Labour staff to the “last days of Hitler”.
A Labour Party spokesperson said:
Diane Hayter has been sacked from her front bench position with immediate effect for her deeply offensive remarks about Jeremy Corbyn and his office.
To compare the Labour leader and Labour Party staff working to elect a Labour government to the Nazi regime is truly contemptible, and grossly insensitive to Jewish staff in particular.
Lady Hayter has been contacted for comment.
