MN: Corbyn tape

this morning (sunday 14th), 12.01-12.03am, on bbc radio 4 

midnight news leads with …

“A leaked recording of Jeremy Corbyn suggests he believes Labour officials have either lost mislaid or ignored evidence of anti-semitism in the party. His words were secretly taped in February, as Labour struggled to cope with the number of anti-semitism complaints made against its members. The recording was made by the Labour MP Dame Margaret Hodge, a fierce critic of Mr Corbyn, during a meeting between the two of them. Part of it has now been released by the Sunday Times.”

Rows about anti-semitism have dogged Jeremy Corbyn for much of his time as Labour’s leader. It’s been the problem that will not go away. He has faced, and continues to face, stinging criticism from within his own party and from his own MPs about his handling of the issue”
