Labour ‘in total disarray’ over antisemitism allegations, campaigners claim
Activists warn anti-Jewish sentiment becoming ‘institutionalised’ in party and call unit responsible for tackling complaints ‘disjointed, confused and chaotic’
Labour activists campaigning against antisemitism in the party have hit out at officials for failing to deal with allegations.
Labour Against Antisemitism (LAAS) said the party’s compliance unit, which handles claims of wrongdoing by members, was “in total disarray”.
The group claimed antisemitism is becoming “institutionalised” in Labour and called for “immediate and decisive” action to address the issue.
Labour has been blighted by allegations of antisemitism in recent months, despite the party insisting it takes a no-tolerance approach to all forms of racism.
