Priceless! Jewish Voice for Labour Sprung Using Duplicate Images to Inflate Number of Jews Supporting Corbyn

Oops!

A group that has defended the British Labour Party amid a years-long antisemitism scandal and heavy criticism from the British Jewish community was mocked online after releasing a mosaic of supporters that was filled with duplicate images.

Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL) published the image — which was ostensibly compiled using 4,800 photos of supporters, and bears the likeness of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn — on Sunday. “This image of Jeremy Corbyn is constructed out of many photos of Jews supporting Labour,” the group wrote. “All those, apart from Noam Chomsky and Naomi Klein, are photos of Jews in Britain.”

Yet critics quickly pointed to the mosaic’s heavy repetition of many photos, which they described as misleading and evidence of the low support both JVL and Corbyn maintain in the British Jewish community. One photo of a woman in a red shirt appeared more than 200 times in the collection, according to a count by The Algemeiner.

Meanwhile, after being sprung, JVL have removed the link to the high-res version of the mosaic; when you click on “the larger image” below per their instructions

this is what you now see:

They also provide examples that – surprise, surprise – do not contain any duplicates.

 

Yet another example of their dishonesty.

I am thinking they would have been better off making a mosaic of Corbyn out of images like this
