The legendary film director puts forward a motion to condemn the BBC for breaking its own codes at his constituency Labour Party
Ken Loach has put a motion to his constituency Labour Party slamming a Panorama documentary on alleged institutional anti-Semitism in the Labour Party as a “dishonest hatchet job” and condemned the BBC for breaking its own code.
Backlash from the programme’s airing and accusations of “institutional racism” within Labour intensifies with Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL) and constituency Labour Parties (CLPs) having expressed concern over the legitimacy of the claims.
JVL said that the documentary heavily featured advocates for Israel, while a number of CLPs including Bath, Cambridge, Liverpool Riverside and Hornsey and Wood Green have backed the leadership over the party’s handling of anti-Semitism claims.
