Default Corbyn walks out of anti-Semitism debate as Labour MPs recall abuse

Quote:
Labour MPs received standing ovations from their colleagues today after recalling personal stories of anti-Semitic abuse - but their leader was not in the Chamber to hear much of it.

MPs including Ruth Smeeth, Luciana Berger and John Mann told the Commons about abuse including rape threats and warnings they would be deselected by far-left Jeremy Corbyn supporters.

Berger - who recently drew the media's attention to Corbyn's defence of an anti-Semitic mural - told the Commons: "One anti-Semitic member of the Labour party is one member too many. And yet... in 2018, within the Labour party, anti-Semitism is now more commonplace, it is more conspicuous and it is more corrosive."

She went on to blame Corbyn supporters who attacked her for speaking at last month's rally, who have called for her deselection as a result. Corbyn had himself walked out of the debate after around half an hour.

John Mann, who chairs the all-party group on anti-Semitism, said he "did not expect to be targeted by a group called Momentum", claiming the pro-Corbyn group was "explicitly targeting Jewish members of the parliamentary Labour party because they are Jewish".

Speaking after Corbyn had left the Chamber the Bassetlaw MP also claimed his wife had been sent a dead bird through the post, and that she had been "threatened with rape, and my daughter similarly".
Even if he doesn't want to do anything about the anti-Semitism in his party, why can't he publicly denounce Momentum? They're nothing but vile, and I can't think of anyone who actually likes them.
