Jeremy Corbyn has been suspended by the Labour Party.
The Labour Party has announced that it has suspended former leader Jeremy Corbyn in light of comments he made after a report about anti-semitism in the party.
“In light of his comments made today and his failure to retract them subsequently, the Labour Party has suspended Jeremy Corbyn pending investigation,” it said in a statement.
“He has also had the whip removed from the Parliamentary Labour Party.”
In a TV interview recorded shortly before his suspension, Mr Corbyn dismissed suggestions he should resign, saying: “Of course not. I’m proud to be a member of the Labour Party. I joined the party at 16, I’ve fought racism all my life.”
