.@jeremycorbyn has repeatedly attempted to reassure those concerned about #LabourAntisemitism that @UKLabour’s disciplinary process would deal with the problem.

1/5 Mr Corbyn should be subject to the same procedure as every other member.
The report we submitted contained 21 separate instances that we felt justified investigation, including Mr Corbyn’s honouring of the Munich terrorists...

Labour high command has been accused of letting off allies of Jeremy Corbyn accused of anti-semitism by claiming that leading activists in the firing line are not even members of the party.

Jeremy Corbyn Must Show He Is Listening to Community Representatives, Not Just Minority Factions
1/7… Jeremy Corbyn has yet again shown misjudgement in meeting with Jewdas, the radical minority group. It has been received as a provocative action, that appears to be cynically engineered to create division within the Jewish community.
