Labour leadership hopefuls clash over handling of antisemiti

The Labour leadership candidates have clashed over their personal records on antisemitism as they went head to head in the first hustings.

Jess Phillips appeared to suggest other candidates had failed to speak out about antisemitism, claiming the party had "lost the moral high ground" to fight racism.

Emily Thornberry said she had always been clear about standing up against racism, insisting the party should kick out antisemites in the same way "Oswald Mosley was kicked out of Liverpool".

Keir Starmer said it was possible to be critical of the Israeli government without being an antisemite, but added: "If you are antisemitic, you shouldn't be in Labour".
