Antisemitism remains an important issue for Jewish communities, the government and policy makers alike. Indeed, such is the severity that Labour – the official party of opposition – was found to have been institutionally antisemitic.
In the recent Labour conference, delegates voted overwhelmingly (73%) to implement the Equality and Human Rights Council’s (EHRC) recommendations to root out and tackle antisemitism when it is found in the party. This is of course, a positive step forward in tackling a scourge that has plagued the party for quite some time. Whilst significant amounts of attention have been rightfully placed on the relationship between antisemitism and the left, indicators of antisemitism on the far-right must also be taken just as seriously.
