Labour peers take out ad attacking Jeremy Corbyn

Labour peers take out ad attacking Jeremy Corbyn”

The session of prime minister's questions came hours after more than 60 opposition Labour members of Britain's upper house of parliament signed a statement in a newspaper accusing Corbyn of failing "the test of leadership" over anti-Semitism in the party, and May demanding an apology for failing to deal with it. Referencing the number of deaths which are attributed to air pollution every year, Corbyn attacked the government for a failure to act over this issue, which he described as "suffocating our children".

The socialist lords addressed Corbyn saying the party was "no longer a safe place for all members" and suggested that thousands have already resigned "because of the toxic culture you have allowed to divide our movement".

The advert opens with: "The Labour Party welcomes everyone irrespective of race, creed, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation".

"You have failed to defend our party's anti-racist values", it adds.

In the Guardian on Wednesday, the peers said Mr Corbyn had failed to accept responsibility for "allowing anti-Semitism to grow in our party".

Labour, the main opposition party in Conservative-led Britain, denied this.

A party spokesman told the BBC: "Regardless of false and misleading claims by those hostile to Jeremy Corbyn's politics, Labour is taking decisive action against anti-Semitism".

The Labour deputy leader and West Bromwich East MP is among five members of the party's ruling NEC to back new measures that will see an independent disciplinary process brought in.

Signatories include Peter Hain, John Reid and Peter Mandelson - all ministers in previous Labour governments - along with public figures including broadcaster Joan Bakewell and scientist Robert Winston.

A third of Labour's peers have posted a full-page advert in The Guardian blasting Jeremy Corbyn for not telling the "whole truth" about antisemitism in the Party.

"We are fully committed to the support, defence and celebration of the Jewish community and implacably opposed to anti-Jewish racism and racism in any form".

Addressing Corbyn directly, the advert states he has "failed the test of leadership" over his handling of anti-Semitism.
