Tonight Rottingdean & Coastal Ward told Warren Morgan to Resign
Warren Morgan, the leader of Brighton and Hove Council, has been in the forefront of making false accusations of anti-Semitism. People may remember that Morgan attacked the Labour Party as ‘anti-Semitic’ on the basis of 3 complaints from other Progress supporters. Morgan has demonstrated through his leadership of the Labour Party his hostility to Jeremy Corbyn.
After an Israeli Jewish speaker at the Free Speech on Israel meeting at Conference, Miko Peled, said that people should be free to debate anything, even Holocaust denial Warren Morgan went and spoke to the Tory press accusing the whole conference of ‘anti-Semitism’. It was a direct attack on Labour at the very time when Theresa May was on the ropes. Theresa May was very grateful and used Morgan’s attacks on the Labour Party at the following Question Time.

Morgan gained lots of Tory press headlines with his threats that the conference wouldn’t be invited back to Brighton again. The right-wing press had spun Miko’s words as saying that Holocaust denial is a legitimate form of debate and even that he himself supported Holocaust denial. Warren Morgan took advantage of these lies and went on record as saying that because I was in the same room as Miko, I should be expelled!

Well tonight Rottingdean & Coastal Ward was one more Ward to condemn him. It passed a resolution calling on Morgan to apologise and retract his allegations and an amendment calling for him to resign was also passed. This follows on Queens Park Ward which also called on him to resign and even his own ward, East Brighton which called on him to apologise. Pavilion Labour Party has dissociated itself from his call and said that the Labour Party Conference will always be welcome in Brighton.

|There was no antisemitism to fix|
Warren Morgan is a detested figure in Brighton and Hove Labour Party. If he had any dignity he wouldn’t wait to be pushed. He would go of his own accord given his past record of lies. However Morgan is someone who is completely oblivious to what others think of him and survival not dignity is what is on his mind.
