Corbyn on Labour anti-Semitism row

PA Wire  PA Images

Former Labour peer Lord Sugar has taken down a tweet showing Jeremy Corbyn in a auto next to Hitler after it sparked a Twitter row.

Mr Jones praised the Labour Party leader for his response to the situation, blaming a delay in the publication of the Chakrabarti Inquiry on antisemitism in the Labour party for the new series of allegations.

It carried the caption: "When you're pictured at Nuremberg and claim you thought you were going to a vehicle rally".

The leader of Britain's left-leaning Labour Party is facing intensifying criticism from outsiders and some of his own members for what is viewed as a failure to address reports of anti-Semitism involving some Labour supporters.

If Labour were elected to govern, Abbott would serve in Corbyn's cabinet as Home Secretary, a position which would put her in charge of hate crime, including anti-Semitism. After it was called out as distasteful by many outraged Twitter users, the Apprentice host has since deleted it.

Lord Sugar later replied, apologising to McDonnell for any offence caused by the tweet but stressed that he was not the originator of the image he had shared.

"And yet it has failed to expel many of those who have engaged in the grossest derogatory fantasies about Jewish/Zionist conspiracies - and Jewish characterisations and accusations which conjure up the very kind of anti-Semitic attacks that led to such unbearable consequences for innocent millions in the past", he also said, adding: "So there no longer exists a party which even pretends to maintain and promote the principles and the integrity of what always was, to me, the Labour Party".

"I think the time has come when we've got to get a one-day conference - that conference can be done in a regional basis, or in a national basis - but we need the membership to come together and say: 'In no circumstances are we anti-Semitic. There is no smoke without fire in Labour".

Lord Sugar said the post was "a joke" and the "angry brigade like to moan".

Lord Sugar responded: "You should follow me so I can send you direct messages".

Labour MPs have joined the voices criticising Lord Sugar for posting the tweet.

John Mann, chairman of the all-party parliamentary group against antisemitism said the was "unwarranted" and also urged Lord Sugar to remove it.

He added: "I hope you will therefore swallow your pride, delete it and make a fulsome apology".

He tweeted: "The use of Hitler/ Nazi comparators is demeaning, unwarranted and risky". You would accept that perception is something that can do a lot of damage to political parties. "Withdraw this and apologise please".

"We are not tolerating anti-Semitism in any form in the Labour Party".

Shawcroft said her presence on the leadership board had become a "distraction".

Mr Corbyn has come under increasing pressure in recent days.
