Investigating the revelations that UK embassy staff in Israel are cooperating with Israeli political parties to influence UK policy making.
A large number of those who have been making Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's life a misery belong to Labour Friends of Israel. They are the same MPs who have been talking up an "anti-semitism crisis" in the Labour party - based on zero tangible evidence - since Corbyn became party leader. Were they following the dictates of their conscience? Did they really fear an anti-semitism plague had suddenly beset their party? Or were they playing deeply cynical politics to oust a leader who supports justice for the Palestinian people and is considered by Israel's right wing government, which has no interest in making peace with the Palestinians, to be bad news for Israel?
Here we have documented evidence of the Israeli government secretly plotting with "friendly" British MPs to oust a British government minister. If that isn't interference in the British political system, I don't know what is. Will we similarly have weeks of coverage of this story in the UK media, or will it be quickly filed away and forgotten?
