Independence day for Labour complaints

This article first appeared in the Times Red Box, on 27 September 2021

Moral, because we are supposed to be a party committed to fighting racists, not harbouring them.

Political, because who can doubt that the stain of Labour antisemitism told voters all they needed to know about Jeremy Corbyn.
