London-based mayoral candidate on anti-Semitism remarks

Published

LONDON: An entrepreneur-activist of Indian descent was ousted on Monday as a future candidate for mayor of London to run against Sadiq Khan next year after her past anti-Semitic comments came to light.
Geeta Sidhu Robb, founder of organic food and juice firm Nosh Detox, was selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate to take Labor but was instead suspended by the party after a picture of the 1997 General Election revealed her doing anti-Jewish remarks.
I apologize a lot for my actions in the 1997 General Election campaign. My behavior caused offense and injury and I am very sorry, said Sidhu Robb.
There is no room for any form of racism or anti-Semitism in society and as such I deeply regret my behavior at the time. By no means is that an excuse, but the context was that I was at the end of a sustained racist campaign and, by mistake, retaliated against as I did, she said.
As a Conservative Party general election candidate in Blackburn 23 years ago when she was running against current Labor MP Jack Straw, Sidhu Robb was filmed saying: Do not vote for a Jew, Jack Straw is a Jew.
The London-based health food promoter, who came second after Straw in that election, said she was deeply ashamed of the language she had used, which she is seen admitting in the images made angrily.
As shown in the footage, I immediately regretted my horrible behavior, which I continue to do. And I am actively addressing the Jewish community to listen and learn, she said.
Two mistakes never make a right. I made a mistake and take responsibility for my disgusting actions 23 years ago, they were never repeated. I urge you to judge me for who I am today, an activist committed to eradicating inequality and discrimination in all its forms, she added, in a lengthy statement on Twitter.
The mayoral election in London was to be held in May this year but has been postponed to May 2021 due to the cessation of the coronavirus blockade.
So far, Sadiq Khan in office is being challenged by Conservative Party candidate Shaun Bailey in the race. The election of Lib Dem has proved difficult after the party’s previous election, Siobhan Benita, withdrew from the race saying he could not commit to an extra year of unpaid campaigning. The party is now back in search of a future candidate following the suspension of Sidhu Robb.
Geeta Sidhu Robb has been suspended by the Liberal Democrats and will not be on the ballot to be the Liberal Democrat candidate for mayor of London. There is an investigation under way in line with the proper process, a Lib Dem spokesman said.
