UK Labour Party candidate in Scotland, Kate Ramsden, announced Thursday her resignation for personal reasons after an antisemitic and anti-Israeli statement on her blog was revealed.

Kate Ramsden stood down in the Gordon constituency after the Jewish Chronicle highlighted a blog post from her. On the blog, Ramsden wrote that Israel is like "a child who has been abused and turned into an abuser in his own right", adding, "Like child abuse, this should be stopped".

"The [Labour Pary] headquarters of the party found these publications during a background check on Ramsden, and we informed the party branch in Scotland", explained a Labour official.

"The staff immediately informed the Scottish Labour Party, which informed the Scottish Executive Committee that the Scottish Secretary of State made a decision to conduct a new interview with Kate Ramsden". Group without lengthen alerted Scottish Labour, who suggested the Scottish Govt Committee, which determined to re-interview Kate Ramsden in regards to the unique posts.

Ms Ramsden, who campaigns heavily on the Israel-Palestine warfare, also reportedly stated Palestinian activists had been "centered with flawed allegations of antisemitism" on a weekly foundation.
