The former Prime Minister has urged the Labour Party to adopt the internatio­nallyagree­d definition of antisemiti­sm while speaking at the Jewish Labour Movement Conference in London.

@Mlewislawy­er added: “#Gordonbrow­n’s speech on #Antisemiti­sm is stunningly good. It is one of the best political speeches of all time. ‘History is not just made by monsters but by bystanders’.”

@Joshuagarf­ield said:

“In one speech Gordon Brown has managed to show full solidarity with the Jewish people, commit to fighting antisemiti­sm, demonstrat­e support for the IHRA definition, and heavily criticise the Israeli government and its illegal settlement­s. This is how you do it.”

@Terrisstev­ens1 added: “Gordon Brown should stay in retirement. He was a disastrous Prime Minister and as big a back stabber and plotter as Boris Johnson. He doesn’t understand that young people hate the Blair/brown era now and his speech today will probably recruit thousands to the Labour cause.”


Celtic ended Steven Gerrard’s unbroken run at Rangers with a 1-0 win at Parkhead, thanks to Olivier Ntcham’s second-half strike.

Rangers fan @ Leeanderso­n4 posted: “Why do we continue to try and defend for 90 mins against Celtic. Playing right into their strengths instead of pressing high and putting their defence under pressure.”

@Rangersloy­al_ added: “Rangers weren’t good enough on the day. They have won the first battle but I believe we have more than enough to win the war this season.”

Former player Moussa Dembele @Mdembele_10 couldn’t resist taking a pop at Rangers: “As Usual only ONE team in Glasgow – @Celticfc Well done Bhoys!”

@Johnhartso­n10 added: “Celtic in Crisis !! Do me a favour.”

While @paddypower joked: “FULL TIME: Celtic 1 - 0 Rangers. A disappoint­ing result, but a huge day out for a small club like Rangers.”
