New Report Condemns Labour Party for Anti-Semitism

But does the report go far enough?


The United Kingdom’s Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) released a report on anti-Semitism in the Labour Party on October 29. The EHRC studied 70 complaints out of roughly 220 they were able to identify.

Their findings are not impressive. The executive summary of the report states: "Our 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." That statement would be condemning enough, but it is amplified with the paragraph that follows (emphasis added throughout):

"The issue of anti-Semitism within the Labour Party has been the subject of much scrutiny, most formally with three investigations in 2016 …. Since then, the party has failed to implement the recommendations made in these reports fully, or to take effective measures to stop anti-Semitic conduct from taking place. It is regrettable that many of the concerns we raise here were first raised in these reports over four years ago."

Just what concerns does the report refer to?
