Shamed ex-Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn flees to hotel on the Isle of Wight


SHAMED former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has fled to a hotel on the Isle of Wight.

Mr Corbyn, suspended from the party over his reaction to a damning anti-semitism report, was spotted ­getting a ferry there despite living in a Tier 2 area in London, where travel to lower-risk areas is discouraged.

He is staying at a four-star hotel in Shanklin with wife Laura Alvarez and appeared in a good mood as they dined together at an Italian restaurant.

He was also spotted going for a jog over the weekend.

One local said: “He must have just wanted a break. But he was having to keep his head down.

“The island is a strong Tory area.”

Meanwhile, his successor Sir Keir Starmer urged Mr Corbyn to “reflect” on his claim that got him suspended — that the scale of Labour’s anti- semitism problem had been “dramatically overstated for political reasons”.

Sir Keir told the BBC’s Andrew Marr that people wanted “an honest recognition of the problem”.

He added: “He should accept the failings, apologise and move forwards.

“It’s pretty clear across the Labour movement most people think he is completely in the wrong place on this.”
