Simmering for years now, and lead item on BBC news today.
Labour is still refusing to accept the full document, rejecting the examples that define the usage of the definition.
Margaret Hodge MP (Labour) is to be disciplined over her protest about it.

The problem may be that accepting the definitions would expose senior people to being in breach of them.

From BBC (25 mins)
"She told BBC Radio 4's Today she stood by her criticism of the Labour leader, saying: "What has happened over the last months - from failure to respond to anti-Semitism against Labour Party members, from failure to respond to the massive demonstration, unique demonstration by the Jewish community, culminating in the failure to adopt in full the universally used definition of anti-Semitism is just a bridge too far."
She insisted she would not leave the party, saying: "I am going to fight within the Labour Party - and it is terrible that in 2018 I have to do that." "

"Jewish MPs Ruth Smeeth and Louise Ellman will submit an emergency motion at Monday's Labour meeting calling for the party to amend its guidelines to include the IHRA definition.
Critics of the party's new guidelines included the chief rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, who said Labour would be "on the wrong side" of the fight against racism unless it toughened up its stance."

No it isn't
Accusations of antisemitism against the Labour Party began immediately after Corbyn declared support for the Palestinian People (within weeks) and that has been a traveable issue ever since.
At no time before this has antisemitism been an issue with the Labour Party - on the contrary - they have led the fight against antiseemitism since the time Tories were forming an alternative government to take power when "Herr Hitler wins the War" -and before that - the Labour Party was formed largely by the support of Jews fleeing the European Pigroms, for crtying out loud
This has never been about The Jewish People (many of whom have said the same)
It is about smearing the Labour Party by using The Jewish People as a club.
If you want to claim that this is not what this is about - address your remarks to the millions of Jews who say it is - I know what this is about

The topic is vexatious, Kenny, started by a vexatious poster, and after eleven posts it has already turned rancid. Perhaps you missed the previous Mudcat bouts on this non-topic that invariably turn sour. Perhaps one fine day the poster will start a thread on the rampant Islamophobia in the party he supports or the hush-hush on child abuse connived in by the Christian faith that he also supports. In the meantime, revel in his hypocrisy for a minute, then ignore. Only a suggestion.

Jim you always see no ships in other peoples comments so whats new
For those interested in the topic :

Differences from the article quoted who is for and who is against?

The code does reproduce the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's "working definition" of anti-Semitism and lists behaviours likely to be regarded as anti-Semitic - but critics point out that it leaves out four examples provided by the IHRA definition:

1 Accusing Jewish people of being more loyal to Israel than their home country

2 Claiming that Israel's existence as a state is a racist endeavour

3 Requiring higher standards of behaviour from Israel than other nations
4 Comparing contemporary Israeli policies to those of the Nazis

But Labour has insisted that while the examples are not reproduced word for word, they are covered elsewhere in the new code.
Labour's code says it is "wrong" to accuse Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel than their own country. And it says that using Nazi comparisons in Israel-Palestine debates "carries a strong risk of being regarded as prejudicial or grossly detrimental to the party", triggering a disciplinary investigation.
Labour's code says: "The party is clear that the Jewish people have the same right to self-determination as any other people.
"To deny that right is to treat the Jewish people unequally and is therefore a form of anti-Semitism."
The code also says Israel's conduct should be assessed "against the requirements of international law or the standards of behaviour expected of democratic states" and that double standards should not be applied.
A party spokeswoman said: "The code of conduct adopts the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) definition and expands on and contextualises the IHRA examples to produce robust, legally sound guidelines that a political party can apply to disciplinary cases."
Tory vice-chairman Rehman Chishti said: "Labour's failure to adopt the IHRA definition of anti-Semitic racism in full is shameful."

A definition that one protected the Jewish People of the kind of attacks that sent six million of them to their deaths has now been adapted politically to protect a regime from criticism - the result of this is that one third of the population of Israel is in favour of Ethnic Cleansing and the Jeewish people around the world are up in arms at being excluded from being Jews by new laws that are based on Zionist Fundamentalism - that happened last week

People how bowed to Israel's pressure to adopt the politicising of a perfectly simple definition antisemitism = the hatred and denigration of the Jewish People
Accusations of Antisemitism have become a weapon in the hands of an extremist regime openly co-operating with other extremist regimes - including fascist ones
Israel has much of the world over a barrel - accuse it's leadership of anything and you become an antisemite - hence the blanket of silence surrounding the mass murder of over a hundred unarmed demonstrators
That has never happened within my lifetime
If Labour has any sense it will face these accusations head on
No attacks on the Jewish people have ever been n prove - not ever
Beyond that, Labour has no case to answer, no critic of Israel has.

Common justice and common sense dictates that if an accusation is made it is up to the accuser to prove guilt, not the accused to prove innocence
Everything else is politicking bullshit

This thread is about ANTISEMITISM IN THE LABOUR PARTY. It was started by KEITH A. OF HERTFORD, who has a good deal of form in setting up and polluting threads with this topic, while the US moderators of this board were asleep in bed. The initiator of the thread hoped to extend its longevity by putting a set of anodyne-looking initials in the thread title instead of the far more honest word ANTISEMITISM. Please don't let this man sucker you into discussing this with him. It's a waste of time and it will serve to bring the forum into disrepute when it inevitably turns nasty.

Had there not been a groundswell of opinion supporting the allegation,it would not have been picked up by the mainstream media. Trying to claim it is a poisonous assertion simply because you cannot deal with it is simply a cop out. Once again Shaw your actions speak louder than words.
You need to do a little more than jump up and down, shouting no,no,no if you wish to dispute the assertion that the labour party clearly has a problem with anti semitism.

WHY LABOUR REFUSES TO SIGN THE "CONTROVERSIAL" CODE

Some comments from other labour mambers
Margaret Hodge is a member of Labour Friends of Israel, a pro-Netanyahu lobby group that has opposed Jeremy Corbyn from the moment he became leader. LFI refused to condemn the Israeli government for murdering 100s of unarmed Palestinians in the #LandDayMassacre. Shame on them.
