Quote of the day 26th November 2019

"The way in which the leadership of the Labour Party has dealt with anti-Jewish racism is incompatible with the British values of which we are so proud - of dignity and respect for all people."

"It has left many decent Labour members and parliamentarians, both Jewish and non-Jewish, ashamed of what has transpired."

Ephraim Mirvis, Chief Rabbi of Great Britain, writing in today's Tunes.


He added that it was "not my place to tell any person how they should vote" but he urged the public to "vote with their conscience".

The Chief Rabbi also said that the response of Labour's leadership to threats against parliamentarians, members and staff has been "utterly inadequate" and said it "can no longer claim to be the party of equality and anti-racism".
