Ming Campbell has apparently sent a letter of "stinging rebuke" to Jenny Tonge over her remarks at a Lib Dem conference fringe meeting last month. As some may recall the LibDem peer said, "the pro-Israeli lobby has got its grips on the western world, its financial grips. I think they have probably got a certain grip on our party."
Campbell said in a press release that he "acted with the maximum powers at my disposal at this time. I have written to Baroness Tonge dissociating myself and the party from her deeply offensive remarks and what I believe to be their clear antisemitic connotations. I have asked for a review of the disciplinary powers available to the Liberal Democrat leaders in both the House of Lords and Commons."
Now, as Croydonian has pointed out this woman "has form" on antisemitism so it's high time someone called her on it. The question is will Campbell have the courage to withdraw the whip from her in the Lords?
