Former Labour PM Gordon Brown Calls for Urgent Action Against Party's Anti-Semites

(Jewish Chronicle-UK) Lee Harpin - Former Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown (2007-10) told a Jewish Labour Movement conference on Sunday that his party must adopt the full International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism to remove a "stain" caused by the party adopting a watered-down version in July. Brown said the decision was "not just a procedural issue but about the soul of the party. It is time to say that this wrong must and can be righted, this injustice has got to be remedied....The hurt it has caused has got to be undone....We must never allow ourselves to be in a position where we are the problem." Brown received a standing ovation when he called for urgent action to be taken against Labour's anti-Semites. "It cannot be hesitant, it cannot be grudging. We can't just move on."
