Jewish candidate receives JuJu comment from trade union chairman

Manchester Jewish parliamentary candidate called JuJu on Unite the Union chairman's Twitter feed.


A Jewish parliamentary candidate, Ivan Lewis, was called JuJu on his Twitter feed from the Twitter account of a leading trade union official. Unite the Union national chairman Tony Woodhouse. Woodhouse is claiming his ‘account had been hacked.'

Lewis, a former Labour government minister and opposition front bencher, left the Labour Party citing anti-Semitism among his reasons, has been vocal in fighting the current wave of Jews hatred emanating from the fare left of the party.

This latest incident, seemingly from a high-ranking union officer, is worrying. Lewis said: "After all the concerns I, and others, have expressed about anti-Semitism in Labour this latest vile post has left me speechless.

"Mr Woodhouse should either resign or, if as he claims his computer has been hacked, identify publicly identify the persons in his circle authorised to post from his account. He must investigate and take appropriate action."

Mr Lewis is standing as an Independent candidate for his former seat in Bury South (Greater Manchester) in the forthcoming general election. Unite the Union and its leadership is known for its anti-Israel stance.
