Labour split over anti-Semitism controversy after Panorama report

The divisions in the Labour Party over how to handle allegations of anti-Semitism took centre stage again today after the deputy leader Tom Watson described the Party’s reaction to a BBC Panorama documentary as “deplorable”.
Labour HQ condemned as ‘politically motivated’ the criticism from former party workers who say their attempts to investigate anti-Semitism were thwarted.
But today, more whistleblowers have offered to give evidence to an inquiry by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
