General Election 2019 latest news: Jeremy Corbyn launches race manifesto before TV grilling tonight


Jo Swinson has claimed the fact the Chief Rabbi “felt compelled” to speak out over anti-Semitism shows how serious the situation is.

Speaking in the south-west, the Liberal Democrat leader said the issue was “extremely worrying”.

She said: “It speaks volumes about the genuine fear that people in the Jewish community feel about Jeremy Corbyn and his inability to tackle antisemitism within the Labour Party.

“I hope that Jeremy Corbyn will reflect on this instead of dismissing the concerns about anti-Semitism that I have heard him to on so many occasions by pretending that he has got a grip on it when Jewish people tell me, and the Chief Rabbi’s intervention clearly shows, that is not the case.”
