    Default Labour Anti-Semitic Under Corbyn

    What a surprise (not).

    Labour broke equalities law over anti-Semitism - BBC News

    A report into allegations of anti-Semitism in Labour found the party was "responsible for unlawful acts of harassment and discrimination".

    The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) said it "identified serious failings" in the party's leadership in addressing anti-Semitism.

    It also said the party had "inadequate processes" for handling complaints.

    The watchdog gave the party an unlawful act notice, meaning it has to publish an action plan within six weeks.

    The Labour Party was plagued by accusations of anti-Semitism from 2016, during the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.

    Mr Corbyn insisted he was getting to grips with the issue and had improved the party's internal disciplinary procedures.

    He was replaced by Sir Keir Starmer in April, who said tackling anti-Semitism within the party was his "priority".

    The EHRC launched its investigation in May last year after receiving a number of complaints from organisations and individuals, including the Jewish Labour Movement.

    In its report, the watchdog found the party responsible for three breaches of the Equality Act, namely:

    *Political interference in anti-Semitism complaints
    *Failure to provide adequate training to those handling anti-Semitism complaints
    *Harassment

    In a statement, it said: "The equality body's analysis points to a culture within the party which, at best, did not do enough to prevent anti-Semitism and, at worst, could be seen to accept it."

    I'm still waiting for the Conservative Party investigation into Islamophobia within it's ranks but won't be holding my breath
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    How is he going to get rid of Len McCluskey? Who doesn't seem to recognise when he makes anti-semitic comments about someone e.g. Peter Mandelson he doesn't like.

    This news is on every single news website. In fact The Guardian are doing a rolling update of it.

    Corbyn suspended over Labour anti-Semitism report

    Corbyn suspended over Labour anti-Semitism report - BBC News
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
