Well, I suppose you can lead a horse to water, and all that.
For me this was the real story: why would the BBC broadcast something so clearly intended to be harmful to the Labour Party; it was biased and unbalanced, and tantamount to propaganda.

Here's a small part of the problems that have been reported about the labour party.
Antisemitism and labour.
Deputy Leader Tom Watson seems to be at loggerheads with Corbyn
Any allegation of antisemitism must be taken seriously – and proven cases must be dealt with appropriately. However what is obvious to many in the Labour Party, but not seemingly to Panorama or reporter John Ware, is that many of the alleged instances of antisemitism are not what they seem.
Many are quite evidently statements that members have made about the Israeli state or Zionism, twisted athletically to assert that their criticism is directed at and insulting to Jews. Many are the result of bulk allegations generated on an industrial scale by just a few organisations, prominent among them the Campaign Against Antisemitism, and Labour Against Antisemitism, set up explicitly to undermine the Corbyn leadership and to protect Israel. The new General Secretary Jennie Formby has expanded the numbers of staff and NEC members struggling to catch up with the backlog of accusations that these operations have generated. Panorama mentioned none of this.
This programme has presented a grossly simplified and utterly distorted picture of Labour’s travails with allegations of antisemitism. It is shameful that the BBC has joined in an orchestrated campaign whose principal aim is quite clearly to prevent Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister of a Labour government committed to socialism.

I watched Panorama. Frankly it's nothing unexpected and a total disgrace. The inability of the Labour Party to deal with this problem makes them totally unfit for government.
It's a world with a lost up its own arse where Labour complain that the fantastically complicated Brexit was not sorted in two years, yet cannot address antisemitism over a longer period. It’s because half the leadership are racists.

Now hold on just one moment there, you have always been against labour and are merely jumping the bandwagon here now are you not.

Maybe its the conspiracy theorist in me but....
There are rumours that if Jeremy Corbyn was to be elected Prime Minister then the Armed Forces may openly revolt against him.
Milliband would have been our First JEWISH prime minister and he was the leader of the Labour party before Corbyn and nearly won that election,
In August 2018, he resigned the Labour whip citing anti-semitism in the party, whilst also citing a "culture of intolerance, nastiness and intimidation" in local parties. Field lost a confidence vote in his constituency party a month before his resignation, after siding with the government in Brexit votes.
