Corbyn responded to the report by saying that while he was speaking out against the Semites, the issue of issues under his leadership was “overlooked for political reasons”.
Those comments attracted a quick and exciting response from the party. A party spokesman said: “In the opinion of (Corbyn) stated today and his failure to withdraw them later, the Labor Party has suspended Jeremy Corbyn pending investigation. He has also been removed from the Labor Party.”
The decision made a splash in British politics: less than half a year ago, in the December 2019 general election, Corbyn was running for prime minister.
Corbyn said he would “strongly argue” his decision to suspend.
On Thursday morning, Corbyn said in a statement that he was working to “speed up – not interrupt” the complaint investigation.
He added: “The anti-Semitism is too much, but the scale of the problem is still too much for political reasons by our opposition inside and outside the party, and most of the mixed media is damaging to the Jews and should not be repeated.”
“We will no longer oppose the anti-Semitism and we will never lose your trust,” Starmer added.
Caroline Waters, EHRC interim chair, said in a statement on Thursday: “Our investigation has identified areas where [Labour’s] Guidelines and leadership in resolving the Jewish issue are not enough. ”
“This is something that cannot be said and appears to be the result of a lack of willingness to deal with anti-Semitism rather than an inability to do so.”
Long-term leftist caretaker Corbyn presented a socialist agenda for the government in December’s elections. But it was rejected by voters, who re-elected the Conservative Party under his new leader, Boris Johnson. Corbyn resigned as labor leader, to be succeeded in April by Starmer, who conducted a weak session.
The Labor Party was last in power in Britain from 1997 to 2010.
