Chakrabarti Doesn’t Deny Corbyn Offered Her Peerage

Shami Chakrabarti has repeatedly refused to deny she has been offered a peerage in an interview with J-TV:

Alan Mendoza: “Do you have political ambitions in the Labour party?”

Shami Chakrabarti: “Do I have political ambitions in the Labour party?” 

AM: “Do you want to run as an MP?”

SC“I don’t know. Probably not. But I don’t Know.”

AM: “Okay. If you were offered a place in the House of Lords would you take it?”

SC: “Goodness me.”

AM: “General question.”

SC: “I don’t know.”

AM: “Have you been offered a place?”

SC: “I don’t know whether I want to talk about my future ambitions at this point.”

AM: “Have you been offered a place in the House of Lords?”

SC: “You can ask the question and I’m going to evade it at this point.”

Not even a non-denial denial. What was Shami promised for the report which claimed “The Labour Party is not overrun by antisemitism”?

UPDATE: PoliticsHome report Corbyn’s team are also refusing to deny she has been offered a peerage.

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
