Antisemitic graffiti in UK city blamed on Labour Party activists

Two large graffiti signs reading “Jewish lies matter” were found in the city of Brighton and Hove on England’s south coast.

The signs appeared on the same day that former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn was readmitted to his party following a recent suspension for downplaying the results of an investigation which found that Labour had mishandled complaints of antisemitism within the party under his leadership.

The graffiti was scrawled in black spray paint on a wall near the coastal promenade in Hove, and on what appears to be a municipal shed near one of the city’s park squares.
