BBC jumped the gun on antisemitism charge against the Labour party | Letter

Bob Adamson cannot understand why the BBC made the sort of Panorama programme that it did in advance of the EHRC inquiry

I am as keen as anyone to see antisemitism rooted out of my party. For that reason I was quite pleased when the issue was referred to the Equality and Human Rights Commission (Dozens more will testify over Labour antisemitism, 12 July). I expect that body to look at the situation from all sides before then coming out with an objective judgment on what has been happening and what needs to be done. What I cannot understand is why the BBC on Panorama felt the need to make the sort of programme that it did, in advance of that inquiry.

Is it not as if, when a notorious criminal case is known to be coming to court, some programme-maker decides that it would be acceptable to get together all the witnesses for the prosecution in advance to find out what they have to say about the situation?
