Board of Deputies of British Jews thanks Labour chief for action on anti-Semitism

The Board of Deputies of British Jews praises Labour leader Keir Starmer for firing Shadow Education Secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey after she shared an article linking Israel to the death of George Floyd, in what was attacked as promoting an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.

The Board’s president, Marie van der Zyl, thanks Starmer for “backing his words with actions on antisemitism” and praises the party for improving how it deals with the matter after Jeremy Corbyn’s tumultuous tenure.
