British daily The Telegraph reports that they were suspended due to racist and anti-Semitic statements; Labour chairman Jeremy Corbyn admits for the 1st time that there is a problem within the party.
Fifty members of the British Labour Party were secretly suspended over the last two months due to racist and anti-Semitic statements, the British daily The Telepgraph reported Monday.
Twenty out of the fifty were suspended only in the last two weeks. Labour chairman Jeremy Corbyn acknowledged for the first time that there is a problem within the party, although he insisted that “it is not a huge problem”.
Corbyn told the Daily Mirror that “what there is is a very small number of people that have said things that they should not have done. We have therefore said they will be suspended and investigated.”
