Jeremy Corbyn is laying out plans to try speeding up the way Labour deals with serious anti-Semitism complaints amid calls for tougher action.
Labour’s bitter row over anti-Semitism has further intensified with attacks on Tom Watson, and Diane Abbott highlighting a call for his resignation.
The bitter row at the top of the Labour Party has deepened, with general secretary Jennie Formby accusing deputy leader Tom Watson of “traducing” her while she is undergoing cancer treatment.
Labour has been urged by its deputy leader to publish its submission to a watchdog investigating anti-Semitism claims as the bitter row within the party continues.
Tom Watson has said he believes there was “some participation” from Jeremy Corbyn’s office in the disciplinary process of dealing with accusations of anti-Semitism in Labour.
Labour and party leader Jeremy Corbyn have been condemned after a BBC Panorama programme investigating claims of anti-Semitism in its ranks was broadcast.
