Station that exposed the Labour right’s antisemitism scam long before Forde will examine how the right-wing regime uses purges to ‘crush democracy’ in the party and gag members
In 2017, the Al Jazeera TV station broadcast a series of undercover exclusives titled ‘The Lobby’, about the work of operatives of the Israeli government and their UK allies to promote smears of the Labour party and its then leader, as well as targeting other politicians who inconvenienced them. At the time – an event almost airbrushed out of history as far as the UK media and the Labour right are concerned – the Israeli government was forced to admit:
- to working to ‘take down’ MPs they considered troublesome or unfriendly to their interests
- that Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour party conflicted with their wishes and interests
- to setting up groups within the Labour party to further their interests
- to ‘helping’ those groups achieve their ends
The revelations resulted in the expulsion of an Israeli diplomat exposed through the fearless undercover journalism of Al Jazeera’s man on the inside – and exposed the political ‘weaponisation’ of antisemitism allegations against the left long before the Starmer-commissioned Forde report reached the same conclusion.
Now, on Thursday evening at 9pm, Al Jazeera Investigations will broadcast a new exposé of the Labour right – this time the use of purges by the Labour right to ‘crush democracy’ and ‘silence the membership’ – a fact long known and discussed on Skwawkbox and other left sites, but again almost entirely ignored by the so-called ‘mainstream’ media.
If your TV device does not include the channel, it should be possible to watch the programme live online here and later on the Al Jazeera YouTube channel.
