“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.”

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.”
