As the battle for the Labour Party leadership comes to a climax, watch leader Jeremy Corbyn face down challenger Owen Smith at JW3 on Sunday from 6pm – via Jewish News’ exclusive live stream.
The debate – organised by the Jewish Labour Movement, Labour Friends of Israel and JW3, and media partnered by Jewish News – is the final hustings before the ballot closes – bringing the curtain down on one of the most bitter leadership contests in living memory.
Polling suggests Corbyn – who has overseen a collapse in Labour’s support among British Jews – is overwhelmingly likely to win with a mandate at least as sizeable as that which he won last September.
Watch Corbyn come under heavy scrutiny over Labour’s ongoing anti-Semitism crisis – with other contentious communal issues such as faith schools and attitudes to Israel also set to feature heavily. Other hot topics include Brexit and the economy.
Labour Friends of Israel chair Joan Ryan says she hopes the hustings “can begin the process of rebuilding the confidence of the community in the Labour Party, which has been so carelessly squandered over the past year.”
