today (presented by justin webb) includes …

“It should be a wonderful time to be a Labour MP, but of course it isn’t, in part that’s because the party’s split over Europe, but there is among many Labour MPs a real horror too, of what they see as the mishandling of accusations that the party’s institutionally racist. The decision yesterday to re-admit the MP Chris Williamson who was suspended from the party for a pattern of behaviour culminating in a recording of him saying that the party had been too apologetic about anti-semitism, has caused pretty widespread upset.”

6ocn: Burgon lied

this evening (tuesday 16th), 6.10-6.12pm, on bbc radio 4

six o’clock news includes …

“The disclosure that Richard Burgon described Zionists as the enemies of peace has again reopened Labour’s gaping wound over anti-semitism, one made sharper by the fact Mr Burgon is not only the shadow justice secretary but also a close ally and supporter of Jeremy Corbyn.

His comments have provoked a furious response from leading Jewish organisations, including the British Board of Deputies, who said they encapsulated the total sham of Labour’s approach to anti-semitism.

… only last year … Mr Burgon denied making such remarks.. I didn’t say that, and they couldn’t tell me when they believed I had said that, and it’s not my view.

Tonight, the chairman of the Jewish Labour Movement, Mike Katz, wrote in protest to the party’s chief whip. Nick Brown, and said that Mr Burgon could not play at being lord-chancellor-in-waiting while making dog-whistle attacks on British Jews.”
