Labour Sack Shadow Brexit Minister Dianne Hayter Over Corbyn 'Hitler' Comparison

Party calls comment “truly contemptible, and grossly insensitive to Jewish staff”.

Labour has sacked shadow Brexit minister Dianne Hayter after she compared Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership to “the last days of Hitler”.

Shadow Brexit Minister Dianne Hayter compared the “bunker mentality” of the Labour leader and his inner circle with the 1930s Nazi regime at a meeting on Tuesday.

truly contemptible, and grossly insensitive to Jewish staff

The party has now sacked the party’s deputy leader of the Lords and called her comments “truly contemptible, and grossly insensitive to Jewish staff”.

Hayter had been criticising Corbyn over his handling of the anti-Semitism crisis facing the party.

She declared: “That declaiming of intelligence, the refusal to share is absolute symbol of the bunker mentality,” Hayter said.

She went on to say Corbyn’s team were refusing to acknowledge criticism of listen to information on polling, saying: “Those of you who haven’t [read the book] will have seen the film Bunker, about the last days of Hitler, where you stop receiving any information into the inner group which suggests that things are not going the way you want.”

A Labour spokesman stated: “Diane Hayter has been sacked from the frontbench position with immediate effect for her deeply offensive remarks about Jeremy Corbyn and his office.

“To compare the Labour leader and the Labour Party staff working to elect a Labour government to the Nazi regime is truly contemptible, and grossly insensitive to Jewish staff in particular.”

Baroness Hayter remains the party’s deputy leader in the unelected Lords as that is an elected position.
