Default Seven MPs split from the Labour Party

Seven MPs have split from the UK's Labour Party, which was formed in 1900 to represent working-class people. https://youtu.be/k7_E_APwKkY

We have had the same thing before but on a larger and more influential scale in 1981, the media dubbing the group the Gang of Four after Communist Party figures during the Cultural Revolution in China. https://youtu.be/2ouiUzQ76_c

Why do people consider Jeremy Corbyn anti-Semitic?

Obviously you know nothing about him. Or, being such a radical liberal yourself, you can't see your hand in front of your face.

I hope you’re paying higher taxes this year.

It's quite a complicated issue to explain JSP. Jeremy Corbyn himself has no anti-Semitic bone in his body. However he's very much a hands-off leader and since the rapid expansion in membership numbers since he became Leader in 2015 a small number of members with anti-Semitic views have crept in and not been rooted out. To add confusion Jeremy doesn't accept the IHRC definition of anti-Semitism which more or less forbids any criticism of Israel, but couldn't prevent the party's ruling body from endorsing the definition in full. https://www.theguardian.com/politics...nition-in-full

Jeremy has sometimes been his own worst enemy in the causes he supports and vilified in the Press for so doing. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45196409

For those interested there's a debate on the current state of the Labour Party here, which does raise the anti-Semitism issue. https://youtu.be/uNUDVXFrzvo
