Labour antisemitism row: Naz Shah's suspension lifted
Labour has lifted the suspension of Bradford West MP Naz Shah, who was disciplined over Facebook posts that suggested Israelis be deported to the US.
Shah, who said she deeply regretted her remarks, resigned as an aide to the shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, after a number of posts made before she was elected surfaced from Facebook.
The MP, who won the seat for Labour from Respect MP George Galloway in 2015, used a point of order in the House of Commons to apologise for what she had posted. "Antisemitism is racism, full stop," she said. "As an MP, I will do everything in my power to build relations between Muslims, Jews and people of different faiths and none."
