Edmonton’s MP has had the Labour whip restored after she was suspended over her comments about the war in Gaza.

Kate Osamor was suspended by the Labour party in January over a post on social media suggesting the conflict in Gaza should be remembered as a genocide on Holocaust Memorial Day.

The Edmonton MP subsequently apologised for “any offence caused” by her message, posted on the eve of the day marking the murder of six million Jews during the Second World War.

Earlier today (May 8), a Labour spokesperson confirmed the whip had been restored to Osamor following “a full investigation by the Labour Party into complaints received about a social media post she made in January”.

Osamor said she was “grateful” for the investigation and accepted its outcome “in full”.

She added: “I want to unreservedly apologise again for my comments. I made remarks which were insensitive, inappropriate and which I apologise for and regret.

“I will continue to reach out to Jewish stakeholders and the community. I am committed to ensuring that I don’t fall short of the highest standards.

“I look forward to continuing to represent my constituents of Edmonton in Westminster as a Labour MP.”

Her return to the Labour party benches comes one month after the party restored the whip to Middlesbrough MP Andy McDonald.

He had previously been suspended after using the phrase “between the river and the sea” in a speech at a pro-Palestinian demonstration in October.

McDonald said it had not been his intention to use language that would cause distress and that he “bitterly regret(ted)” the “pain and hurt caused”.

Former Labour MPs Diane Abbott and Jeremy Corbyn remain suspended over comments relating to antisemitism.
