It’s taken years but at last a group of independent media outlets – and yes, This Site had a hand in it – have released a documentary debunking claims by the BBC’s Panorama that the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn was anti-Semitic.
And it is still topical, three years after the Panorama attack piece was aired.
In the Panorama programme, interviewees alleged that The Labour Party is institutionally antisemitic. After Labour, led by Jeremy Corbyn, strenuously denied the claims, these people sued – and new leader Keir Starmer paid them a six-figure sum, despite having been told the party could win if it mounted a defence.
If you watch the new documentary, Reaching Over The Noise: Is Labour Really Antisemitic, you may easily come to the conclusion that Starmer’s advisers were right – and Starmer was wrong.
This Site covered the Panorama attack piece in depth at the time it was released – in a series of six articles:
The new documentary takes a hard look at the allegations in Panorama, examines whether they were really justified, and comes up with an honest answer.
It balances the Panorama piece by interviewing British Jews who approved of Jeremy Corbyn and his leadership of the Labour Party – and revealing the abuse they have suffered as a result.
It examines the individuals whose testimony formed the backbone of Panorama – were they entirely honest or did they have a shared interest in putting forward a particular interpretation of events?
And it asks whether the narrative put forward by the BBC documentary was the whole story – or missed out vital information.
The verdict? Well…
Watch the documentary and you’ll find out.

I read an interesting comment on a news site forum by someone apparently in Israel, he summed up the situation by saying…..
“Antisemitism used to be the Hatred of Jews but now it’s Who certain Jews Hate”
I find it difficult to disagree with his statement.
I Have never voted Labour but, in my opinion the anti Semitic allegations were founded on Jeremy Corbyn’s efforts to support the Palestinian’s arguments. These allegations, I submit, were instigated by the Israeli’s to humiliate Corbyn and thereby cause damage to the Labour party.
Corbyns sight we the peasants would have been better of but they the establishment media and anyone who believed the crap they put out a darn sight better under his leadership stammer the spammer and his lot need throwing out let them cross the floor to their right full party the Tory’s
