"Lord Mitchell has led a distinguished career in business and politics, during which he has always fought against antisemitism. For five years he chaired the Coexistence Trust, whose mission is to encourage dialogue between Muslim and Jewish students at British universities. As a prominent member of the Labour Party, he was highly critical of a report into antisemitism by Shami Chakrabarti which whitewashed severe and ongoing problems in the Party, and condemned her elevation to the peerage following the publication of the report (she remains the only peer ever nominated by Jeremy Corbyn). Upon Mr Corbyn’s re-election as leader of the Party, Lord Mitchell resigned from the Party on principle, telling a television audience that Mr Corbyn had failed to tackle antisemitism in the Party and had surrounded himself with people who are hostile to Jews."
