UK Labour under pressure over anti-Semitism after BBC doc

UK Labour under pressure over anti-Semitism after BBC docBritain’s Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn came under renewed pressure over anti-Semitism on Thursday after a string of former officials spoke out about the party’s failure to tackle discrimination in a BBC documentary. Former officials, including the main opposition’s former general secretary Iain McNicol, broke non-disclosure agreements to allege that members of Corbyn’s inner circle had interfered with investigations into anti-Semitism in the left-wing party. Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson, who has been critical of Corbyn, said the revelations were “harrowing”.
