Keir Starmer has ‘got the message right’ says national chair of Jewish Labour movement


Hundreds of people have attended a rally in Trafalgar Square calling for the safe return of the hostages taken from Israel during the Hamas attacks two weeks ago. Many were carrying placards with the faces of those captured, and chanting ‘let my people go’.

Yesterday we reported that more than 20 Labour councillors had resigned over their leader, Sir Keir Starmer’s support for Israel.  But there’s still widespread backing within the party for his stance – not least from the Jewish Labour Movement who held their long planned conference in Manchester today.
