Jeremy Corbyn suspended from Labour Party over antisemitism report reaction
Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been suspended from the party and has had the whip removed.
A party spokesman said: “In light of his comments made today and his failure to retract them subsequently, the Labour Party has suspended Jeremy Corbyn pending investigation. He has also had the whip removed from the Parliamentary Labour Party.”
Mr Corbyn had reacted to a damning report into antisemitism by saying the number of complaints made during his tenure were “dramatically overstated for political reasons”.
