Human rights watchdog rules UK’s Labour Party ‘responsible for unlawful acts’ of anti-Semitism

The EHRC report found Labour responsible for unlawful acts of harassment and discrimination over anti-Semitism. In his initial reaction, Corbyn rejected the overall conclusions, saying that the anti-Semitism problem within the party was “dramatically overstated for political reasons.” The politician also said in a Facebook post that he had been obstructed by party officials in trying to tackle the issue, but expressed regret that “it took longer to deliver that change than it should.”

The EHRC’s lead investigator, Alasdair Henderson, said that as the leader of the party, Corbyn “is ultimately accountable and responsible for what happened at that time.”

Keir Starmer, who replaced Corbyn as Labour leader in April, said he accepted the EHRC report “in full” and the party was facing a “day of shame” over the failings revealed.

“Under my leadership, we will have zero tolerance of anti-Semitism,” Starmer added.
