    From the Report:


    The party is responsible for three breaches of the Equality Act (2010) relating to: political interference in complaints, failure to provide adequate training to those handling anti-Semitism cases and harassment.

    The party has been served with an unlawful act notice and has been given until December 10 to draft an action plan to implement the report's recommendations, which is legally enforceable by the courts if not fulfilled.

    The EHRC found evidence of political interference in the complaints process, with 23 instances of inappropriate involvement by the Leader of the Opposition's Office (LOTO) and others in the 70 files the watchdog looked at.

    They included LOTO staff influencing decisions, including on suspensions or whether to investigate claims.

    The EHRC found the situation to be indirectly discriminatory and unlawful as it put the person making the complaint at a disadvantage.

    The watchdog found that the lack of training for people handling anti-Semitism complaints indirectly discriminated against Jewish members until August 2020, by which time Sir Keir Starmer was leader of the party.

    Labour has committed to proper training, with the EHRC recommending it should be mandatory and fully implemented within six months.

    Lord Mann, a former Labour MP and independent adviser to the Government on anti-Semitism, tweeted: 'The moment of greatest shame in the history of the Labour Party.

    'And to think how many said it was all made up and exaggerated. Which amongst them will stand up and say that I am truly sorry?'

    The Jewish Labour Movement said the report showed that 'the blame for this sordid, disgraceful chapter in the Labour Party's history lies firmly with those who held positions of leadership - those who possessed both power and influence to prevent the growth of anti-Jewish racism, but failed to act.'

    In a statement it said: 'What the report shows is that, worse than simply failing to act, the leadership of the Labour Party actively interfered in the processes relating to anti-Semitism, for political reasons.

    'This failure of leadership amounted to unlawful conduct that facilitated antisemitism to become normalised within the Labour Party, a situation that continues to this day, that must be stopped, and must never happen again.

    How Corbyn got to be the labour leader;

    The change in Labour's leadership contest rules in 2014 was heralded as a way of reducing the influence of the trade unions but it also allowed anyone to take part in ballots for a 3 fee.
    It received little attention at the time but nearly 200,000 people have taken advantage of it. This appears to have caught Jeremy Corbyn's leadership rivals, who focused their message on the existing Labour membership, by surprise. Only Mr Corbyn had a link to the 3 affiliate scheme on his campaign website.
    Panic spread through the party when mischievous Conservative supporters started claiming they had signed up for a vote to sabotage the contest.
    A different kind of panic took hold when it emerged that supporters of other parties, most notably the Greens but also far left groups, were attempting to sign up. There was much talk of "entryism" and a purge by party officials, which saw more than 3,000 people banned from casting a ballot because they were deemed not to support Labour's "aims and values".
    Only Mr Corbyn, of the three candidates fully embraced the new arrivals (apart from the Conservatives of course), promising them a role in setting Labour's policy agenda.
    RIP Wes.

    Yes, i paid 3 and voted for Corbyn. When it beacame possible to do so, I, and about 70,000 others who hate Labour, saw our chance to saddle them with a total marxist looney who was completely unelectable, and he exceeded our expectations, and made labour lose3 national votes and a referendum. Corbyn did a magnificent job of making labour smell so bad huge swathes of its lifelong supporters deserted and did the unthinkable, and voted for the Tories. Best 3 I ever spent on politics, and such good value.
