Mark McDonald published in Tribune: Don’t let these racism smears stick
Mark McDonald writes:
In the last year, there has been mounting and heavily publicised criticism against the Labour Party of anti-Semitism or failure to sanction anti Semitism within the party. It is, however clear, with only the slightest scrutiny, that any allegation of anti-Semitism is wholly without foundation. The Labour Party does not have a problem with anti-Semitism. But it is a sad truth that when any person or organisation is accused of anti-Semitism, it sticks. The allegation may be without evidence, unproven or, indeed as we find here, politically motivated. But once the label is there, it stays – like a festering sore.
