How the shite-y have fallen.
Britain’s main opposition party, Labour, suspended its former leader Jeremy Corbyn on Thursday after he tried to deflect blame for the party’s handling of anti-Semitism allegations.
Mr. Corbyn made his comments after a human rights watchdog in Britain said in the findings of a formal investigation that the party bore responsibility for “unlawful acts of harassment and discrimination” against Jewish members, reinforcing complaints that long clouded Mr. Corbyn’s tenure as party leader from 2015 to 2020.
A few hours after Mr. Corbyn posted a statement on Facebook blaming “opponents inside and outside the party” and the media for overstating Labour’s failures on anti-Semitism, the party said that Mr. Corbyn had been suspended.
“In light of his comments made today and his failure to retract them subsequently, the Labour Party has suspended Jeremy Corbyn pending investigation,” the party said.
For his part, Corbyn does not plan to take this decision lying down
Look at the bright side, Jeremy. Now that you are suspended, you can unleash your antisemitism without any filter. I am sure your brother Piers can give you some tips. Perhaps even son Tommy. Also, your wife can now go to all the antisemitic events she wants, without having to claim she attended by mistake.
Besides, if Labour won’t have you, I am sure there are other “political” parties that will.
