  1. Boil it all down and Elaina Cohen must have had some justification for her complaint of anti-semitism against Khalid Mahmood, as after the industrial tribunal she remains in her job. Meaning that not only was tax payers money used to cover his backside, but stop Labour having another Anti-semitism scandal to deal with. Smelly.
