We can win this battle – in our party and society

Toxic Labour leadership fight has emboldened anti-Semites
Sadiq Khan ought to be the most popular Labour politician in the UK. He has the largest personal mandate of any elected politician in British history. His victory in May wasn’t just a great triumph for Labour, it was a triumph for hope and decency...
