Luciana Berger branded ‘Jew b***h’ on Twitter over 2,500 times in just three days, court hears

ONLINE ANTI-JEW HATE

Former Labour MP Luciana Berger was bombarded with abusive messages after an image was sent to her account with the hashtag '#HitlerWasRight'

AN MP was branded a “Jew b***h” online more than 2,500 times in three days in a far-right hate campaign, a court heard.

Former Labour MP Luciana Berger was bombarded with abuse after an image was tweeted to her account with the hashtag #HitlerWasRight.

In the image, a star was imposed on her forehead, mimicking Nazi imagery used to target Jews.

Expert Professor Matthew Feldman said: “In the space of three days the hashtag ‘Jew b***h’ was tweeted at Luciana Berger more than 2,500 times.”

He said it showed the banned far-right group National Action had a “vehemently racist creed”.

The abuse emerged in the trial of four people accused of being members of the group.

The four, including so-called Miss Hitler beauty contest winner Alice Cutter, 22, all deny the charge.

The case continues at Birmingham crown court.

What is The Independent Group and why did seven Labour MPs quit the party in protest against Jeremy Corbyn?
