Labour MP Wes Streeting speaks to Iain Dale about the Vicki Kirby race row on LBC:

“Today I’ve had messages from party members who have cut up their membership cards… I’ve had constituents write to me asking: ‘what on Earth is going on? Is there still a place for Jews in the Labour party?’ I think Jeremy really does need to be proactive at this stage. I think he’s got to now stamp on it… I’m actually in Berlin at the moment at an international conference tackling antisemitism. It feels pretty embarrassing being a British Labour MP at this conference given what seems to be a pretty poor approach to tackling antisemitism ourselves.”

As of 7pm tonight Kirby is still a Labour members and still the vice chair of the Woking Labour Party…

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
