Labour could become the second party to be investigated by Britain’s equality watchdog. The party has been accused of failing to tackle antisemitism Christopher Furlong/Getty ImagesBritain’s equalities watchdog is expected to launch a full investigation into Labour after its failure to stamp out antisemitism in the party. Until now, the only party to have been investigated in the EHRC’s 12-year history was the British National Party. The watchdog’s board is expected to meet next month to discuss the evidence.
