Guido Fawkes has an absolute shocker of a story from this week's Labour conference, demonstrating continuing antisemitism in the Labour Party. If you've not already seen it I'd urge you to take a deep breath and read it. I'd say 'Unbelievable!' but, alas, it really isn't anymore.
Meanwhile, here's a brief exchange on the same subject from this morning's The Andrew Marr Show:
Andrew Marr: Let me put to you something that Lord Mitchell - who has just resigned from the party in the Lords - has said today. He said, first of all, that he has to go because he thinks Momentum, 'Corbyn’s people', he says, ‘have the Labour Party by the throat’ is his expression. But he then goes on to say something quite disturbing...
Jeremy Corbyn: Has Lord Mitchell ever met anyone in Momentum? Has he ever spoken to anyone in Momentum?
Andrew Marr: I haven’t asked him, I have to confess. But he also says this, and this goes back to, I know, issues in the past. He says, ‘I think it’s very difficult if you are Jewish and you support Israel to be a member of the Labour Party.’ That’s disturbing that he thinks that, isn’t it?
Jeremy Corbyn: It’s unfortunate he would say that, because it’s not a fair comment. And I would hope that he would reflect on that because clearly there are diverse views within the party on issues in the Middle East, but there’s absolute unity in the part of opposing any form of anti-Semitism, any form of racism, in the party. That is very clear.
Andrew Marr: Let me move on to big policy issues.
