Labour is facing criticism for standing by its Rochdale by-election candidate, even after he claimed that Israel allowed Hamas to carry out its October 7 attack to provide grounds to invade Gaza. Jeremy Kyle and Rosie Wright are joined by Host of the podcast ‘Power Play’ Anne McElvoy and chief political commentator Peter Cardwell to discuss whether the Labour candidate should still stand. Azhar Ali apologised for his “deeply offensive” comments after he was recorded telling a meeting of the Lancashire Labour Party that Israel had deliberately relaxed security after warnings of an imminent threat. Labour’s decision to stick with Mr Ali has raised questions about Sir Keir Starmer’s claim to have changed his party since Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, when it was embroiled in an antisemitism controversy. Pat McFadden, Labour’s national campaign co-ordinator, said Mr Ali’s comments were “completely wrong” and did not represent the party’s view. But he said Mr Ali would remain Labour’s parliamentary candidate in the Rochdale contest on February 29, which was triggered by the death of sitting MP Sir Tony Lloyd.
