The Labour Party broke the law in its failure to handle antisemitism complaints and there were "serious failings" by its leadership, the equalities watchdog has concluded.

An investigation into anti-Semitism in the party by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) found it responsible for "unlawful acts of harassment and discrimination" and said there was political interference into complaints.

It said Labour broke the law in three areas: political interference in antisemitism complaints, failure to provide adequate training to those handling antisemitism complaints and harassment of those who complained.

An unlawful act notice has been served to the party following the findings, which means the commission can recommend any necessary action to avoid the actions being repeated or continued.

Labour has until 10 December to draft an action plan to implement the report's recommendations, which is legally enforceable by the courts if not fulfilled.

The investigation found evidence of 23 instances of "political interference" by then leader Jeremy Corbyn's office and others in the antisemitism complaints process, our of the 70 files the watchdog looked at.

Labour has no choice at this point but to kick out any members espousing antisemitic views, and it should have been done long ago.

I don't agree that accepting donations from a union whose leader denied an antisemitism problem in the party is tantamount to tolerating antisemitism, though.

Corbyn was always a joke. Seriously. The guy is deluded.
