The liberation and elevation of people of colour has no better friend than the Jewish Left. And no worse enemy than the Jewish Right, which is often the liberal, neoliberal and neoconservative element in parties that are at least nominally of the Left.
As Denis Goldberg dies, the Board of Deputies demands that black women, as such, be banished from political life. It presumes the right to instruct the Labour Party, for which few or none of its members even vote, on whom to subject to disciplinary action.
And that party shows every sign of surrendering to it, on the same day as it has surrendered to Narendra Modi, of all people. Keir Starmer's woeful poll rating is richly deserved. Under him, Labour is finished, and the rest of us need it to be finished.
