The Labour Party’s response – I think it’s pathetic, what they’re trying to do is to denigrate the witnesses rather than to take seriously the evidence of the witnessses, which were very very powerful … They’re very defensive for very good reason, they’ve never taken the issue seriously, I don’t think all of them are anti-semitic themselves, but what they are guilty of is at best complacency about anti-semitism, not understanding that it is as racist to be anti-semitic towards somebody who is of the Jewish faith as it is to be racist towards somebody who’s black or asian. They don’t get that, and critically they conflate concern about the way the Israeli governments in recent years have treated the Palestinians, which let me say I and many Israeli Jews share, into a trope against people of the Jewish faith and against the existence of Israel. And that’s where Jeremy Corbyn I think is, and has led to this terrible permissive regime.”

W@1: Falconer waits

world at one (presented by sarah montague) includes …

“The former Labour Lord Chancellor, Lord Falconer, says anti-semitism is an existential crisis for the Labour Party. He’s been asked to review the problems with anti-semitism within the party, but just as he was about to take up the role last week, the Equaltiies and Human Rights Commission, the EHRC, announced that it believed Labour may have unlawfully discriminated against people because of their ethnicity and religious beliefs, and it’s considering a full investigation. Lord Falconer told me their investigation should take precedence, and not operate in parallel to his, he could then take up a longer-term role after they finish.”
