British Jewish Groups Express Cautious Optimism Over New Labour Party Leader’s Pledge to Stamp Out Antisemitism Within the Party

Denny Taylor, founder of the internal party advocacy group Labour Against Antisemitism also expressed guarded optimism, saying the group “cautiously welcomes” Starmer’s victory.

Citing the BOD’s Ten Pledges, Taylor said Starmer “must now honor those pledges in full” and work with Jewish communal organizations to do so.

“The election of a new leader does not mark the end of our campaign,” he noted. “We will continue to report instances of antisemitism in the Labour Party as we find them, and hold the leader (and the wider Labour movement) to account.”
