Corbyn apologises over anti-Semitism in Labour party  

Political Editor

Jeremy Corbyn has finally issued a detailed apology for the anti-Semitism he now admits has surfaced in the Labour party during his time as leader.

Just 24 hours after infuriating some of his MPs with his description of “pockets” of anti-Semitism in the party, he’s admitted the problem has too often been dismissed “as simply a matter of a few bad apples”.

His open letter to Jewish leaders came after they accused him of presiding over institutional anti-Semitism. They’re protesting in parliament tonight.
