The Labour Party let the Jewish community down — we must take action

THIS has been a shameful week for the Labour Party.

The EHRC’s findings were clear. The Labour Party let the Jewish community down.

The anti-Semitism that saw MPs and members harassed and forced out over the past five years was disgraceful.

Those of us calling it out were accused of lying or exaggerating the problem to “smear” Jeremy Corbyn. It was wrong.

When Sir Keir Starmer was elected leader of the party the first thing he did was apologise.

But it needed to be followed with action.

Processes will be quickly put in place.

Politicians will not be able to interfere.

There will be zero tolerance.

We have a long way to go but change is taking shape.

  • Catherine McKinnell is MP for Newcastle North and Co-Chair of Parliamentary Group Against Antisemitism
