Labour former minister Dame Margaret Hodge was applauded after a speech in which she said it felt as if her party has “given permission for anti-Semitism to go unchallenged”, adding: “Anti-Semitism is making me an outsider in my Labour Party. To that, I simply say enough is enough.”

She was also applauded after she gave a highly personal speech about how her family had been caught up in the Holocaust.

She added: “I have never felt as nervous and frightened as I feel today at being a Jew.

“It feels that my party has given permission for anti-Semitism to go unchallenged.

“Anti-Semitism is making me an outsider in my Labour Party. To that, I simply say enough is enough.”
