Labour Party

Chakrabarti nominated for a peerage

No great surprise, but this news further discredits Chakrabarti’s controversial report into antisemitism in the Labour Party, already dismissed by many as a whitewash.  (A piece in today’s  Jewish Chronicle claims that Baroness Royall was ‘carved out of the Chakrabarti report entirely.’)  News of her elevation has been met with much disapproval and derision.
