The NUS is almost the student wing of the Labour Party, so why hasn't it taken a similar approach?

the NUS is a monopoly - it doesn't have to worry about being unpopular or looking stupid - students can't get fed up and vote for the alternative.

Not many people care about NUS.

The Labour Party on the other hand...

What Naz Shah said was silly, but not anti-semitic. I don't like Naz Shah at all, i'm for George Galloway, but i have to be fair on this.

What Livingstone has said is in NO way Anti-semitic, nethanyahu himself said it earlier this year i believe (or late last year)!

It's just a ploy to conflate israel's crimes with anti-semitism, and as a way for the blairite's to attack Corbyn.

Because, amazingly, the current incarnation of the Labour Party still manages to be more mature than the NUS.

You don't think there was something slightly anti-semtic about asking for help on an online vote "because the Jews are rallying"?

Well, I actually like Labour. So getting rid of Corbyn would be a good thing.

sadly, the hundreds of thousands who have joined labour, the new blood he has brought as well as a massive mandate in 60% of the vote disagree's.

and 60% when there are 4 other candidates is a HUGE mandate.

If the cooperate media and the blairite's within labour wish to force another leadership battle, he'll win again, maybe even more this time.

Some people joined Labour to vote him in so they'd have a useless leader tbh

The NUS are not entirely interconnected to Labour so their rampant anti-semitism is seen as less of an issue from Labour. Remember Labour don't actually care about controlling anti-semitism or racism, they are only responding to public pressure. Anti-Semitic views were rife on the Labour Party before anything was addressed

Exactly.
They claim it does not even exist which shows how much they care. It's sad, perhaps had they been a very different party honest to their roots, I could have voted for them, but never will vote for such a party
