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”

“A whole number of his top team, not just one person, lots of them, are involved in decisions around individual complaints, and what they do is they interfere and they lower the sanctions so that people aren’t suspended, they’re just given a warning letter. And what is so awful about this is that Jeremy always proclaims a zero tolerance of anti-semitism. When it comes to the actual cases. if they’re his mates, he doesn’t demonstrate zero tolerance … trust in him has gone.”
