Solidarity 435 carries background material and discussion on the row in the Labour Party over how Ken Livingstone should be dealt with, following his inflammatory remarks no the relationship between Zionism and Nazi Germany.

Our editorial position is that we do not call for Livingstone to be expelled. We want to limit, not expand, the powers the current party regime has to "ban" political views.

However, as the articles we print here make clear, Livingstone's long-held view views on these matters are seriously harmful.

We invite further debate.
