Jeremy Corbyn’s critics use the issue of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party to subvert him, a union boss has said.
Unite general secretary Len McCluskey said such actions were “despicable” but added that the party “never directed the anti-Semitism issue correctly”.
Labour’s response to alleged anti-Semitism among its members has been under investigation by the Equality and Human Right Commission since last May.
Meanwhile, his uniting has backed Rebecca Long-Bailey for Labour leadership.
But Mr McCluskey said it was “unfair” to describe her as the “continuity Corbyn” candidate as she will have different priorities.
