The former Labour General Secretary resigns the whip … that it is institutionally anti-semitic, that its leadership is incapable of dealing with issues of anti-semitism, and has no intention of doing so.“

“If you look at event after event after event, my challenge is: any one of them, has he made the right call on it? – and the answer is not once, never.”

Its leader, and his circle, are anti-semitic, never having once made the right judgment call … he either is indifferent to the problem or he’s part of the problem.”

Jeremy Corbyn has responded and says he regrets the resignations, John McDonnell said the party needs to listen, to be in listening mode, to be sure that the trend dosn’t go much further. But it hasn’t altogether gone to plan, because one of the party’s MPs, Ruth George, has had to apologise today for suggesting that the seven MPs may have been funded by the state of Israel.”

Newsnight: Labour anti-semitism row

yesterday evening (monday 6th), 10.44-10.48pm, on bbc 2 tv
newsnight (presented by evan davis) includes …

The Labour Party is seriously struggling to close down its anti-semitism row. Yesterday’s video apology for anti-semitism from Jeremy Corbyn didn’t convince many of his critics. Today, the party dropped disciplinary proceedings against Margaret Hodge, but still managed a new row involving lawyers over whether she had apologised or expressed regret for her behaviour. Even loyal Corbyn supporters have to concede that the party leadership has failed to grab the problem and dispose of it successfully. The infighting on social media over the weekend was quite something. Is this whole argument a potential trigger for much bigger trouble in Labour?”
