Labour leader hopeful Rebecca Long-Bailey has said she will work “very hard and very robustly” to tackle anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.
Long-Bailey told Sky News’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday programme, “I wasn’t happy with the way our process was being run, I’ll be honest, I don’t think we were dealing with complaints quickly enough and I think that’s quite clear, I’ve been quite vocal about that.
“I spoke to Jeremy about it, I spoke to the various members of the team, I spoke to various members of the NEC (national executive committee) about that.”
She also said the Jeremy Corbyn has apologised and takes responsibility for anti-Semitism in the party. She said, “He does and he’s apologised.
“I think any Labour politician that leads the Labour Party should apologise again for what has happened because it has been unacceptable.”
