linger. properly, been left to linger. people who have been readmitted into the party, not disciplined properly, this is what he is saying, ifjeremy corbyn cannot handle these issues but then his party, this poison, as the chief rabbi says, that are spread and his party, how can he be fed for high office is his argument. and sonia, he stopped short for saint do not vote for labour, doesn't it? but i mean his views are pretty clear. i do not think he is leaving any doubt as to what his messages in this letter. it is incredibly clear. i think it is very serious and it is very serious belabour. as anna said, it is completely unprecedented. has been a lot of criticism about how have handles complaints of anti—semitism with a lot of focus on jeremy corbyn himself as leader of the party. they have been instances where jeremy corbyn himself has been accused of sharing things that have been anti—semitic. so, a lot of focus on the party. the equalities and human
rights commission has got an ongoing investigation into the party, so this is usually serious and i hope that it will be causing a lot of people in labour tonight to sort of reflect. because it is quite a shocking state of affairs that this is happening. i suppose the other thing i would say is that i think a lot of voters with a very angry and enabled and so my idea angry, because you have the eh rc investigating labour for institutional anti—semitism and on the other side i conservative party where there are very serious allegations of institutional islamophobia. a former chairwoman of the party has said she thinks there is an institutional problem and there is certainly concerned so that they conservative leadership is not telling those allegations properly either. again, you have sent councillors, for example, conservative councillors and members share islamophobe post, sometimes get suspended and get back in a week
later. so a very shocking sort of affairs. this is a dire warning from the chief wrapping. two of our main political parties, how have we got here? the political parties, how have we got here ? the conservatives political parties, how have we got here? the conservatives have been, the court have real that some of their policies, the writer meant policy that sees landlords being forced to do checks on people who we nt forced to do checks on people who went from them, that policy has been billed as racially discriminatory by the court. so, it feels like a very dry toa the court. so, it feels like a very dry to a state of affairs i think when both main parties have got these sorts of issues. something that also comes into play here in the election is the fact that this election, one of the themes of it is an issue of trust and the trust... trust in leaders. on both sides. something the chief rabbi raises is jeremy corbyn's claims that all allegations have been dealt with, allegations have been dealt with, all allegations of anti—semitism but
that labour had been dealt with, he calls it mendacious fiction. a to trust. the conservative party are launching an enquiry into islamophobia and they keep saying it is going to be by the end of this year. the end of the on this, and we have not seen it yet. it is by saying that reacting to the comments of the chief rabbi in the times, a labour spokesman has said that jeremy corbyn is a lifelong container against anti—semitism has made it absolutely clear that it has no place in our party and society. and that nobody who engages in it does so in his name. the story only just broke, but as you say an unprecedented and devastating are tight by the chief rabbi and no doubt we will be talking more about it. let us just turn to the daily mirror, sonia, labour's care revolution for pensioners. according to the mirror, this isjeremy corbyn's seven point plan to restore
dignity and respect after years of tory cuts. this is interesting, isn't it? because social care did not really feature in the conservative manifesto. what did you make of that? there is a huge difference between the two manifestos. the conservative one is essentially silent on it, saying this is a big issue. borisjohnson oi'i this is a big issue. borisjohnson on his way into downing street for the first time as prime ministers said it was something he would sort out. there was no plan in the manifesto. they said was we will try to work on a cross—party consensus, which, i to work on a cross—party consensus, which, lam to work on a cross—party consensus, which, i am sorry, to work on a cross—party consensus, which, lam sorry, has to work on a cross—party consensus, which, i am sorry, has not worked for a which, i am sorry, has not worked fora numberof which, i am sorry, has not worked for a number of years. they conservatives have been in government for almost ten years, some of them with a majority and this is not an issue that has been sorted out. we have overi million orgy people at home who need help with everyday tasks, like washing, dressing, eating —— we have overi million older people atom. it is not a human way to treat older people.
jeremy corbyn is proposing, a big pledge and are manifesto, free personal care items for the over 65. what that means is at the moment in out what that means is at the moment in our system, if you are diagnosed with dementia, many people have to meet the cost of that kind of selves. if you are diagnosed with cancer, does kaka sketch covered by the nhs. so, labour is proposing quite a long way into closing the gap between the two systems, between social care and the nhs. it does cost billions of pounds, but there isa very cost billions of pounds, but there is a very good case. it is money we should be spending, because if you make people fund their own care they tend not to pay the cost upfront, because it is very expensive. and then what happens is that older people can suffer balls, for example, at the end up in hospital, which stretched over them and is also not great for the nhs.m affects everyone, the families of those people, the number of people who have to care for their family,
their parents, their elderly relatives. it has a huge impact on society and frankly, it is really disappointing that the government to have been in a position to come up with solutions, i mean, we have been waiting for a social cow green paper, it was meant to come last autumn and we have not seen anything. —— a social carer green paper. social care was a huge priority for them and as sonia said, borisjohnson pledged priority for them and as sonia said, boris johnson pledged to priority for them and as sonia said, borisjohnson pledged to exit on the steps of downing street. what is really disappointing as we had a ma nifesto really disappointing as we had a manifesto yesterday which is philly, it is completely overshadowed by their experiences in 2017. work to may put forward a policy that had a huge u—turn. we are not saying that that was in anyway a good way to solve it, but avoiding the problem because it might be politically toxic or slightly risky compared to
having a vanilla manifesto is not appropriate. let us move on to your paper, and. tory majority would bring boat on brexit deal before christmas. this is the news that the concept is when and when a majority, they will bring forward a queen's speech on december the 19th. yes, just as we thought that all the drama and fun with and on the two other december were the result on the 13th, we are now going to have a queen's speech on the 19th of the tories when a majority. what is interesting about this is they are setting out a mission statement that if they win a majority, there are going to actually pass. a queen's speech, a brexit vote back to parliament before christmas, which a lot of voters, particular brexiteers, will find really encouraging. because as boris johnson keep saying he is the only candidate who is talking about a real plan to get brexit done and
over the line. he does keep saying that. we notice. yes, i think what is interesting about this is it will bea is interesting about this is it will be a ballet, the queen speech is the moment when the government is meant to set out its agenda for the next five years of the back of its manifesto when it hasjust five years of the back of its manifesto when it has just won an election. as an upper saying, the conservative manifesto is incredibly then. there's barely any policy in there. it is essentially a get brexit done manifesto. it is devoid of ideas and quite depressing read. when you consider the challenges we face as a secondary, daycare crisis, whether it is what today about how to scale up young people who do not go to university, there are no solutions in the tory manifesto, it is dollar but getting brexit done. the story gives a flavour of the alike after december the 12th of the conservatives to win a majority. i think the answer is it will feel a lot like the politics of the last
two years. so, it will all be about getting brexit done. borisjohnson is saying that he can get brexit finally over the line by the end of next year. he year. he thinks he can get a final trade but the european union a nine or ten months. a lot of experts say when you think six months of that will be taken by process alone, it is incredible to think you could negotiate a full trade deal in that time. the alternative is another delay after january to 31st and more uncertainty, so at least this is a plan assay rights, even before christmas we will get back into parliament, start voting on this day and see what mps think about it. but they amend it, what was that like at they amend it, what was that like at the end? and then we will actually no, probably early january the end? and then we will actually no, probably earlyjanuary abi leaving, when, how might and it'll probably be quicker. this all depends on a tory majority, so we shall see. we do not have much time, but i just like to shall see. we do not have much time, but ijust like to touch on the
katmai guardian. child by the table surged to six year high under tories. who are saying this? a resolution foundation, an independent think tank. incredibly robust analysis, it is that about respected. this is incredibly great, i think. you respected. this is incredibly great, ithink. you know, comes back respected. this is incredibly great, i think. you know, comes back to the idea of this conservative manifesto, nothing very new and diverse one thing that the institute for fiscal studies said about it as a part in schools and hospitals, the spending cuts of the last ten years i baked into the next five years according to this manifesto. what does that mean? look at what happened in the la st mean? look at what happened in the last ten years, low income families with children have lost thousands of pounds a year in tax credit, some of them. at the same time that tory chancellors have delivered income tax credits,... it was a political choice. conservative chancellors have ta ken away choice. conservative chancellors have taken away money from low income families the children and given it to better off households. it is going to be more of the same
in the next five years. that is why we are going to see child poverty surged to a 60 year high. it is an absolute indictment that we have the child poverty levels that we do in out child poverty levels that we do in our country. it is a rich country, we should not have parents having to go differed banks to feed their children. that is essentially the situation we have got ourselves into. anak, the resolution foundation says labour‘s £9 billion of action spending between half a million fewer children in poverty. had they costed that? well that money come from? do we know? i think thatis money come from? do we know? i think that is part of the manifesto, isn't it? part of the 83 billion extra spending. as they have pointed out it looks unlikely they will be able to do all of the 83. i will have to stop now. that's it for the papers this hour. anna mikhailova and sonia sodha will be back at 11.30pm for another look at the papers, and don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website.
