Galloway party candidate disputed that six million Jews died in Holocaust

In Europe
June 08, 2024

A candidate for George Galloway’s Workers Party of Britain has disputed that six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, The Telegraph can reveal.

Another candidate for the party shared a social media post belittling Holocaust Memorial Day as a “galactic load of victimhood”.

After returning to Parliament by winning the Rochdale by-election in February, Mr Galloway vowed to field hundreds of candidates across the country.

The Workers Party of Britain has already been forced to drop some candidates  after they were accused of anti-Semitism.

Last month, The Telegraph revealed that one had been deselected for sharing a video claiming that Jews had been punished throughout history for “killing Jesus Christ”.

More cases of Workers Party candidates sharing inflammatory material online have now come to light.

Julie Lowe, standing for the party in Chesterfield, has posted a number of controversial tweets referring to Jews. In response to a post questioning whether six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, she wrote: “It can’t possibly be 6m.”

Responding to another post on X, formerly Twitter, in April calling for the sacking of Rachel Riley, the Jewish television presenter, she wrote: “You may have a problem there, Channel 4 are heavy with Zionist Jews like her.”

Sharing a misattributed photo purported to show a young Bill Gates meeting an Orthodox rabbi, with a caption linking him to Ghislaine Maxwell – a photo that does not in fact depict Mr Gates – Ms Lowe tweeted: “Gates The Jew with the child traffickers.”

In a response to a tweet claiming that the creation of Israel was anti-Semitic because “Europe sent European Jewish people there because they didn’t want them back in Europe after WWII”, she posted: “There was a reason Germany want them gone. Hint it wasn’t because they were Jews – it was their behaviour.”

‘Rhetoric is utterly shocking’

Another candidate, Kamran Khan, who is standing in Poplar and Limehouse, east London, reposted a tweet belittling the Holocaust.  It said: “Tomorrow is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Hope you’re all ready for the galactic load of victimhood headed our way.”

The post included a mock pie chart of “WW2 casualties” showing “6,000,000 Jews” occupying a larger segment of the chart than “70-85 million others”.

A spokeswoman for the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, which tracked down the social media posts, said: “The rhetoric from these candidates is utterly shocking. But every day we seem to uncover new horrors from candidates for the Workers Party of Britain.”

The Workers Party and the candidates involved were contacted for comment.
