David Cameron tells Jeremy Corbyn to ‘sort out’ antisemitism problem in Labour

    Prime Minister David Cameron has told Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn he must “sort out” the problem of antisemitism in the Labour Party.

    Mr Cameron said during Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons that there had been a growth in support for antisemitism in parts of the Labour Party.

    Pointing at Mr Corbyn, he said: “I say to the leader opposite, it’s his party. He should sort it out."

    The Prime Minister made the comment in response to a question from Mike Freer, Conservative MP for Golders Green and Finchley.

    Mr Freer asked that with instances of antisemitism on the rise, did Mr Cameron agree that it should be rooted out from all organisations, whether public or private.

    The Prime Minister replied: “Antisemitism is an absolute cancer in our society and we should know when it grows it is the signal of even worse things happening.

    “There is sadly a growth of antisemitism in our country and we see it in terms of attacks on Jewish people and Jewish students.”

    Mr Cameron was speaking after a series of new revelations about antisemitism in Labour, involving the suspension of two local councillors, and claims that most Jewish Labour MPs had been catagorised as "hostile" to Mr Corbyn in a list allegedly drawn up by the Labour leader.
