The truth about racism in the Labour Party

How deep does racism run within the Labour Party?

Since the start of the Gaza war, there’s been a growing anger within British Muslim communities at Labour’s perceived lack of leadership on the Palestinian issue, ignoring the overwhelming calls from their own constituents to stand for a ceasefire. Under Sir Keir Starmer, the opposition party has mirrored the government line, publicly supporting Israel’s devastating military actions, despite the outcry of many Labour MPs - many who quit in protest.
But some have remained to fight.

This week on The Big Picture, we speak with Labour Party member and former Uxbridge candidate Ali Milani, who says he’s ready to publicly challenge the way senior members of the party view Palestinians, and Muslims in general.
