Journalist and author Rachel Johnson says Keir Starmer's mission to "clean house of antisemitism" has been pushed back "by the pro-Palestinian cause that has swept the campuses, that has swept the left." The Labour leadership is facing questions after withdrawing the party’s support for its Rochdale by-election candidate, amid a storm of criticism of remarks he made about Israel. Azhar Ali had apologised after he was recorded suggesting in a meeting of the Lancashire Labour Party that Israel had taken the October 7 Hamas assault as a pretext to invade Gaza. But a party spokesperson said on Monday evening that Mr Ali, who is understood to be suspended pending an investigation, had Labour’s backing withdrawn “following new information about further comments”. #israel #palestine #labour #talktv Click here for more from TalkTV https://talk.tv If you need any help visit: https://talk.tv/helplines
