Silent Corbyn Under Pressure on Anti-Semitism

First Mandelson and then Labour’s Angela Smith gave their dithering leader both barrels on Wato:

Mark Mardell: Is Jeremy Corbyn doing enough?

Angela Smith: Well I think Jeremy Corbyn has a role to play here as the leader of the Labour Party. I think the entire leadership of the Labour Party, the Shadow Cabinet, really has to get out there and make it absolutely clear there is no place in the party for this behaviour.

MM: So they’re not doing that now?

AS: Well I think Jeremy could do more. I think Jeremy really needs to come out and say publicly that he will not tolerate this in the party. He said it privately at the PLP last night. I think he needs to come out and say it.

Some in Labour are doing this best to say this isn’t about Corbyn. Clearly not everyone agrees.
