Parliament’s Home Affairs committee is holding its first evidence session into allegations of anti-Semitism, and what a disgusting exhibition it’s turning out to be!

Committee members seem to have assumed the guilt of those Labour members who have been accused of anti-Semitism, are taking the opportunity to attack the Labour Party as a whole, and have a willing cheerleader in Jonathan Arkush, the president of the board of deputies of British Jews.

He has taken every opportunity to repeat the disproved misinterpretations that we’ve all heard already many times – that Ken Livingstone said “Hitler was a Zionist”, for example. Livingstone said Hitler was an “anti-Zionist”, in fact.

It is one of the most disgusting displays This Writer has witnessed in more than 20 years of political reporting. Tune into it here if you have the stomach for it. If not, I’ll be writing a report later today (June 14).
