Former British PM Tony Blair Slams Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn for Failure to Deal With Antisemitism in Party

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair blasted current Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn on Sunday for failing to combat antisemitism within the party.

In a televised interview, Blair told Sky News that Corbyn had not been “robust” enough in his response to the party’s growing antisemitism crisis.

“Of course we should eradicate antisemitism from the Labour Party,” he said. “We are supposed to be a progressive political party, how can we say it’s tolerable to have a certain level of antisemitism in the party?”

Blair also referenced the no-confidence motion brought against Jewish Labour MP Luciana Berger in response to her outspoken activism against antisemitism in the party.

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
