UK Labour Party suspends former leader Jeremy Corbyn after anti-Semitism report

Global News published this video item, entitled “UK Labour Party suspends former leader Jeremy Corbyn after anti-Semitism report” – below is their description.

Britain’s opposition Labour Party suspended its former leader Jeremy Corbyn on Thursday for seeking to deflect blame away from himself after a report found that under his leadership the party was responsible for unlawful harassment and discrimination. Corbyn’s tenure was marred by persistent complaints of anti-Semitism in party ranks and criticism of the leader’s response, prompting the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) to launch an investigation in May 2019. The EHRC said the Labour Party was responsible for three breaches of the Equality Act: political interference in anti-Semitism complaints; failure to provide proper training to handle the complaints and harassment. Corbyn’s successor, Keir Starmer, apologized and said the Labour Party was facing a “day of shame.” Starmer said he accepted the EHRC’s report “in full” and would implement all of its recommendations.
