UK Labour Party Votes Down Attempt to Restore Jeremy Corbyn as Party MP
Some good news to start the morning.
Jeremy Corbyn, a Labour party MP and the United Kingdom’s former opposition leader from 2015-2020, was not reinstated as an MP in the Labour party following a vote Tuesday, international media reports.
Corbyn, from the left-leaning Labour party, served as leader of the opposition for the better part of the 2010s. He was suspended by the party in October of 2020 after stating antisemitism in the party had been overstated for political reasons – as the party was embroiled in accusations of organizational antisemitism. He has yet to be reinstated by his replacement as party whip, Keir Starmer, and lost his latest appeal on Tuesday morning.
