LABOUR leader Jeremy Corbyn blasted “totally fallacious” accusations that anti-semitism was tolerated in his party yesterday.
Mr Corbyn was responding to Blair fundraiser Lord Levy’s threats to quit unless the leader made it clear anti-semitism was not accepted after a string of complaints.
“Lord Levy clearly hasn’t been listening to the seven times since I became leader I have absolutely condemned anti-semitism, I have condemned Islamophobia, I have condemned any form of racism anywhere within our society,” Mr Corbyn said.
“I’m disappointed that Lord Levy has made these remarks, he knows full well what my views are, he knows full well what the views of the Labour Party are, he knows full well the kind of decent, inclusive society that we all want to live in.
“We do take action in the very, very, very small number of cases where anything happens and if we hear any allegations they are properly and thoroughly investigated.”
