The election of Boris Johnson as leader of the Tory Party and therefore as Prime Minister piles pressure on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to embrace the European imperialist project as the only way to defeat a hard Brexit. But while tensions within the Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) between those who represent Brexit-majority constituencies and the pro-Remain majority of Labour MPs remain unresolved, Zionists – in an unholy alliance with right-wing sections of the party for whom even Corbyn’s mild anti-austerity policies are anathema – have stepped up their campaign to isolate Corbyn and drive him from the Labour Party leadership. Their actions threaten to tear the PLP apart as dozens of Labour MPs and peers unite with the most reactionary forces outside the Labour Party to demand the expulsion of anyone suspected of the slightest sympathy with the Palestinian people. Fabricated allegations of anti-Semitism have become the norm, with the BBC lending them credence during an unashamedly biased edition of Panorama. ROBERT CLOUGH reports.
