Keir Starmer under pressure over Labour's Rochdale election candidate

Keir Starmer is facing pressure to distance Labour from its candidate in the Rochdale by-election after he was revealed to be a Gaza conspiracy theorist. Azhar Ali, who was secretly recorded saying Israel effectively sanctioned the Hamas atrocity against its own people to get the 'green light' to invade Gaza, has apologized for his comments. Despite calls for the party to pull support for his campaign or suspend his membership, he continued to receive the support of the party machine. Jewish groups and the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism have criticized Labour's stance and called for urgent action.
