Director of Progress, Richard Angell, has promoted an “8 Point Plan” within the Labour Party, which calls for a lifetime ban for those judged anti-semitic. It is available here.
Workers’ Liberty have written: “Until the left’s political programme on Israel-Palestine is picked apart and corrected, incidents like these will continue to occur. Labour Party expulsions would have little effect on left anti-semitism; they would explain nothing and educate no-one.”
Cathy Nugent, editor of Workers’ Liberty’s newspaper Solidarity, will debate the issue with Richard Angell. Entry is free; all are welcome.
