As the United Kingdom gears up for a critical general election, some Britons are deciding between party loyalty and independent candidates.

The opposition Labour Party is predicted to win the election by a staggering margin. But many of its longtime supporters are disillusioned with the party’s stance on Israel’s war on Gaza.

According to a recent poll commissioned by Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) and the Council for Arab-British Understanding (CAABU), 86 percent of Labour voters support an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Labour leader Keir Starmer has only called for a “sustainable ceasefire” and repeatedly backed what he sees as Israel’s right to self-defence, even as tens of thousands of Palestinians are killed.
