How allegations of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party became a central issue in Britain’s election campaign.

The British national election on Thursday will probably determine whether the United Kingdom will leave the European Union. But another issue has become central to the campaign: accusations that Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has not adequately addressed allegations of anti-Semitism in his party. On First Person this week, we hear from the editor of Britain’s Jewish Chronicle, Stephen Pollard, who has written about Corbyn for years.
