“[NR] Jeremy Corbyn, it is extraordinary isn’t it that the leader of a religious community has to warn people about you and your party?”

“[BJ] His unwillingness to take a stand, to stand up for Jewish people in the Labour Party, his unwillingnes to protect them, to put an arm round them, is in my view a failure of leadership.”
