What’s Rebecca’s view of Israel and antisemitism?

THE odds on Jeremy Corbyn’s “chosen one” to succeed him as Labour leader have shortened dramatically in the last few days.

Rebecca Long-Bailey is fully supportive of all the policies presented to the nation last month, which were summarily dismissed by the electorate — many of them life-long supporters of the party.

But where does she stand on the Middle East and the ongoing problems on antisemitism — currently under independent investigation — that have blighted Corbyn and his associates in recent times?

Will her attitude be to follow her boss’ line on the Israel-Palestinian conflict and also will she be strong enough to take action on internal matters, bearing in mind her close connections to the unsavoury Momentum group?

We wait with some trepidation for the outcome of the ballot for the new leader in just over two months’ time.
