Over the weekend, an internal Labour Party report entitled "The work of the Labour Party's Governance and Legal Unit in relation to antisemitism, 2014-2019" was leaked. The report was reportedly prepared to "submit to the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s (EHRC) investigation into antisemitism".
As the report is a leak and has not been officially published, there are a lot of varying reports on its conclusions. For example, Skwawkbox, a generally pro-Corbyn outlet has reported that the document:
accuses senior right-wing staff of failing to act on antisemitism complaints – and of working against the party and its leadership in the hope of removing Jeremy Corbyn as leader.
while the BBC takes the subtly different line that the opposition to Corbyn itself was the reason for the failure to act on antisemitism:
Anti-Jeremy Corbyn sentiment within Labour hindered the party from tackling anti-Semitism, says a leaked report.
Meanwhile, LabourList writes that the report:
has laid bare the extent to which disciplinary cases were poorly handled by party staff members, but concludes that there is no evidence antisemitism complaints were treated differently
and the Jewish Chronicle, which has previously criticised Corbyn and Labour's approach to accusations of antisemitism, quotes a former Spad, who:
described it as a report written by Corbynites who then deliberately leaked it, “blaming their antisemitism on other people plotting against ‘Jeremy’, which is itself an antisemitic trope, and now they’re bleating that Starmer won’t send their forgery to the EHRC.”
Given that accounts of the report's findings and conclusions seem to vary wildly based on one's choice of news outlet, what exactly are the true conclusions drawn by the leaked report?
