Report says Chakrabarti knew she was being offered a peerage before her whitewash inquiry into antisemitism

An exposé in The Telegraph appears to confirm our suspicions that Shami Chakrabarti’s peerage was a reward for her whitewash report into antisemitism in the Labour Party.

We welcome new rules passed by Labour Party Conference to make it easier to expel antisemites, but now the Party must walk the walk, not just talk the talk

With great reluctance, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has just passed a motion allowing greater sanctions against antisemites in its ranks.

The Labour Party’s antisemitism is laid bare by its decision to drop its investigation into Oxford University Labour Club
