Labour’s anti-semitism trope just won’t go away. The Jewish Chronicle reports that Shami Chakrabarti’s enquiry had access to the results of the Royall inquiry into Oxford University Labour Club and is failing to document whether she’d seen it. They major on the fact that Royall discovered evidence of acts of anti-semitism at Oxford University Labour Club but Royall descoped individual acts from her report as she stated she believed that the Party or University’s disciplinary code should be invoked. She (Royall) also argues for more training and is confused as to how far back people should be investigated for evidence of anti-semitism.
My red line is that the Labour Party must not put its disciplinary process in between a perpetrator and the police and courts. I think the language the rules use around culprits of electoral fraud, which is non-compromising should be used and her argument that there should be no statute of limitations is also unacceptable to me.
