Chakrabarti Inquiry

Keith Kahn-Harris, Guardian, CIF, This antisemitism report deserves Labour’s calm, close attention. No chance opinion piece: "It’s a measure of how intense the last week has been that the antisemitism controversy that engulfed the Labour party in the spring seems a long time ago. Thursday’s publication of Shami Chakrabarti’s inquiry into antisemitism in the party seems in some ways to be a jarring voice from the past. Inevitably though, given the civil war in the party, some will try to use the report as a tool in this conflict." A copy of the report is here.
