Sir Keir Starmer apologises on behalf of Labour after the publication of a damning report on antisemitism which he described as a “day of shame” for the party.
Labour has suspended Jeremy Corbyn and hints his predecessor can expect to face investigation by the party over issues like his support for an antisemitic mural, pledging that “it is our responsibility to look at all cases”.
Starmer accepted in full a report by the Equalty and Human Rights Commission which found, after a year-long investigation, that the party broke the law by failing to prevent “acts of harassment and discrimination”.
Under Mr Corbyn’s leadership it “did not do enough to prevent antisemitism and, at worst, could be seen to accept it”, said the EHRC, which described Labour’s failure to act as “inexcusable”.
