Jeremy Corbyn: British Labor Party Suspends Former Leader After Anti-Semitic Reports

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) on Thursday declared a “grave failure” on how labor was being used against Jews in the party during Corbyn’s tenure.

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.

He said Twitter“I have made it clear that those who deny that there is a problem in the Labor Party are wrong. I will continue to pursue a policy that does not tolerate all forms of racial discrimination.”

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.”

Before Corbyn’s postponement was made public, his successor, Keir Starmer, said he fully accepted the report and would follow through on it. “It was a day of shame for the Labor Party. We have failed the Jews … I’m truly sorry for the pain and sorrow that has arisen.” Starmer said in a prepared statement.

“We will no longer oppose the anti-Semitism and we will never lose your trust,” Starmer added.

EHRC Said Political parties are responsible for three violations of the Equality Act. These are: political interference in anti-Semitic grievances; Failure to provide appropriate training to deal with complaints; And harassment.

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.
