“The EHRC report is a source of shame for us,” said Kir Sturmer, Jeremy Corbyn’s successor and current party leader. According to the report, Jews were discriminated against in appointments to party posts.
London: The opposition Labor Party in Britain has suspended its former leader Jeremy Corbyn from the party. This was due to the anti-Semitic conduct that took place during his tenure. A recent report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) states that Corbyn, as party leader, ignored complaints of discrimination against Jews. He did so on purpose.
“The EHRC report is a source of shame for us,” said Kirin Starmer, Corbyn’s successor and current party leader. According to the report, Jews were discriminated against in appointments to party posts. The EHRC report has also given Starmer a chance to step up his move in the party. Corbyn, 71, however, has denied all the allegations made in the report. At the moment, the party has started investigating the matter and Corbyn will remain suspended till the investigation continues.
Corbyn has lost his position as Labor whip in the House of Commons due to the suspension and will no longer be able to vote on parliamentary resolutions as a party MP. Sturmer has said the party has accepted the EHRC’s full report and will implement its recommendations. He described it as embarrassing for the party and apologized to the Jewish community. “There will never be a time when the Jewish community has a complaint against the party,” Sturmer said.
