Their interventions will increase tensions between the Socialist Campaign Group of MPs and Labour’s leader following the latter’s decision to apologise and pay damages to seven staff who claimed they had been defamed by senior party figures after taking part in a BBC Panorama documentary on antisemitism. … [Read more...] about Monday briefing: ‘Shroud of secrecy’ fuelled bad Covid-19 decisions
