Labour Against Antisemitism: Corbyn loses the whip but has Starmer lost the plot?

Featuring Euan Philipps and Emma Picken of Labour Against Antisemitism. Jeremy Corbyn spent just nineteen days suspended from the Labour Party after the Equality and Human Rights Commission's report delivered a damning verdict into the party's victimization of its Jewish members. But as Corbyn was restored to the membership, new leader Sir Keir Starmer refused to return the parliamentary whip to his former boss. But even that is open to review. The factional war between Labour’s hard-left and moderates is now in full flow, but what will the outcome be - and can Labour ever be voted into power while this remains unresolved? Euan Philipps and Emma Picken of Labour Against Antisemitism submitted 15,000 pages of evidence to the EHRC. In this episode, they explain their motivations, their hopes and predict what’ll happen now.
