Labour NEC adopt JLM's Rule Change Proposals

We are heartened that the NEC has adopted our rule change proposals and will be taking them forward to Party Conference next week.  This is another step forward, however our campaign will not end until these proposals are adopted in full by Conference itself -this is not a given and will require the firm support of the Leadership.  These constitutional amendments, if passed, will simply bring the Labour’s rules to the place that should have been expected from a political party rooted in values of equality and anti-racism.  The proof of the pudding will be in the eating.  That means that if passed at Conference the new rules will need to be firmly implemented to create a zero-tolerance environment for antisemitism and other forms of discrimination. The Party will then need to take steps to rebuild its relationship with the Jewish community.”
