See #VoxPolitical’s Mike talking about #antisemitism and the false claims made about it [VIDEO]

This Writer was on TV last night – albeit TV on the internet.

I was on a programme set up to discuss the new documentary Reaching Over The Noise: Is Labour Really Antisemitic? that was made to counter the false claims made in a BBC Panorama programme a little more than two years ago (at the time of writing).
