Labour MP Rosie Duffield has been cleared of allegations of transphobia and antisemitism by her party, saying she has been “completely exonerated”. The Canterbury politician, whose views on trans people have caused a rift in Labour, said the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) had dismissed the claims against her and “there was no case to answer, and nothing I had done had breached any Labour Party rule”. In November 2023, The Sunday Times reported that Duffield had been placed under investigation by Labour when she liked a post from comedy writer-turned-anti trans pundit Graham Linehan on X/Twitter. The Father Ted and The IT Crowd creator had posted a response to Suzy Eddie Izzard, after the comedian wrote that if she had lived in Nazi Germany as a trans woman, she would have “been murdered for it”.
