Aside from the thankfully lifeless British National Party, there is little evidence of anti-Semitism on the British Right today. Contrast that state of affairs with the miserable condition of the British Left. Since its hijacking by Jeremy Corbyn and his acolytes in the fall of 2015, the Labour Party has been engulfed in a series of anti-Semitism scandals. Ken Livingstone’s sick fixation on claiming Adolf Hitler was a Zionist (the ulterior motive of which is to slander Israel as the reincarnation of Nazi Germany) would be comical were the former London Mayor not such a popular figure within his party. Indeed, so voluminous have Labour’s anti-Semitic eruptions been that they led both the party and parliament’s Home Affairs committee to launch separate inquiries. The latter of these determined that “The failure of the Labour Party consistently and effectively to deal with anti-Semitic incidents in recent years risks lending force to allegations that elements of the Labour movement are institutionally anti-Semitic.” As for Labour’s internal probe, it was a travesty, capped when Corbyn rewarded its author, the shameless Shami Chakrabarti, a peerage just two months after she produced a whitewash.
