“There has been a failure of leadership. It’s a stain on Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of this party.  … many people turning away from the party because of this. It’s shameful the way that these complaints have been managed, and frankly when a senior backbencher like Margaret Hodge is crying, effectively, in the parliamentary Labour Party because of the horrific language that’s been used against her and others, I stand in complete solidarity with them, and I say quite clearly that this pernicious nastiness is found on the extreme left as it is found on the extreme right, and we resist it and fight it equally.”

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”

“The former Labour Lord Chancellor, Lord Falconer, says anti-semitism is an existential crisis for the Labour Party. He’s been asked to review the problems with anti-semitism within the party, but just as he was about to take up the role last week, the Equaltiies and Human Rights Commission, the EHRC, announced that it believed Labour may have unlawfully discriminated against people because of their ethnicity and religious beliefs, and it’s considering a full investigation. Lord Falconer told me their investigation should take precedence, and not operate in parallel to his, he could then take up a longer-term role after they finish.”
