Jeremy Corbyn suspended from UK Labour Party over anti-Semitism complaints. By Jacquelin Magnay.

Former leader Jeremy Corbyn has been suspended from UK Labour for downplaying a damning report into anti-Semitism within the party.

Mr Corbyn became the first Labour leader to be suspended…

During 2019, accusations of anti-Semitism within the Labour Party were a key issue in the general election.

The [Equalities and Human Rights Commission] found that Labour had harassed, discriminated and politically interfered with Jews over the past four years, which coincided with Mr Corbyn’s leadership. …

The commission looked at 70 anti-Semitism complaints and found that 23 showed signs of political interference by Mr Corbyn’s office or others. …

Mr Corbyn said he would “strongly contest” the suspension and he has refused to retract his statements. He said he would not quit the party. …

[Keir Starmer, Leader of the Labour Party,] said people who thought there is no problem with anti-Semitism in the Labour Party and that it was all exaggerated and a factional attack, were “part of the problem too”.

See? Retreat from woke can occur, but it first requires an election defeat. Well done, Keir Starmer.
