LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s opposition Labour Party on Thursday suspended former leader Jeremy Corbyn in light of comments he made after a report said the party was responsible for unlawful harassment and discrimination in its handling of allegations of anti-Semitism.
“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.”
