Al Jazeera timed this well.
The day the Labour Party conference began, the Middle East news channel uploaded a new documentary, The Labour Files, to YouTube.
Here’s the promotional blurb:
Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit uncovers the true story behind the “crisis of anti-Semitism” that engulfed the British Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn. It made him appear unfit to govern and led to a crushing electoral defeat.
An analysis of internal party documents, social media data and covert recordings reveals how senior Labour officials used the party’s procedures to undermine support for Jeremy Corbyn and to silence debate about Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.
The files also show how pro-Israel groups ask the party to distance itself from the Boycott Divest and Sanctions campaign, a protest movement that seeks to end Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands, and how – in response – the Jewish Board of Deputies was assured that Labour would “never accept attempts to exceptionalise and deligitimise Israel.”
Part of the documentary concerns alleged links between the husband of Labour MP Stella Creasy – Dan Fox – with the far-right English Defence League (EDL). You’ll be able to watch the video below but before you do, in the name of balance, here’s Ms Creasy’s statement about this aspect of it:

This tweet seems to have pre-empted the statement, though:

Here’s the programme:
The documentary has provoked a large amount of commentary on Twitter – much of it criticising the mainstream news media for ignoring it:
So far, not one major newspaper in the country has dedicated a solitary word to covering the shocking revealations in The Labour Files on Al Jazeera.

Labour’s “antisemitism crisis” under Jeremy Corbyn was one of most intense propaganda campaigns ever fought in peacetime Britain.
It was a fraud pushed by the Labour right, Israel lobby, mainstream media, among others.
The truth is finally out. Watch 👇https://t.co/h3ARCRwqjc

The #LabourFiles revelations should be all over the MSM.
Absolutely sickening that they’re actively ignoring it but it’s not surprising at all.
In Sir Keir, the establishment know they have somebody safe waiting in the wings.
He deserves to be nowhere near power at all. #Lab22

#LabourFiles will of course not be spoken about at #LabourConference2022 because #LabourConference2022 are the ones responsible for what #LabourFiles reveals.
They'll pretend it isn't happening, as will our 'fearless' 4th estate.#ItWasAScam

Rest assured, you won’t hear a peep out of the media about the Labour files because they’ve got the Labour leader they want. pic.twitter.com/cTjt4BqPM8

Interesting convo with Him Indoors who doesn't understand why we keep making a fuss about Labour, as if we are trying to somehow "save" it.
He's right, to an extent. But those of us who were on the receiving end during the Corbyn years need this final catharsis.

Another Labour Files documentary appeared two days previously. Here’s the blurb for The Purge:
An investigation based on the largest leak of documents in British political history. The Labour Files examines thousands of internal documents, emails and social media messages to reveal how senior officials in one of the two parties of government in the UK ran a coup by stealth against the elected leader of the party.
The program will show how officials set about silencing, excluding and expelling its own members in a ruthless campaign to destroy the chances of Jeremy Corbyn becoming Britain’s prime minister. Candidates for key political roles were blocked and constituency groups suspended as the party’s central office sought to control the elected leadership.
And here’s the programme:
