Do you think Jeremy Corbyn could be doing more about that issue?”
[Chuka Umunna] “It would be completely disingenuous for anybody to deny that in fringes on the left there have been problems with anti-semitism. but I tell you what, if anyone can lead the charge. in stamping it out and showing a zero tolerance to it, it is Jeremy.”
