Ben Bradley, the Tory MP who slandered Corbyn by falsely accusing him of being a spy for the Communist bloc, has been forced to publicly apologise, publicly admit the charge is untrue, and pay damages(which will be paid in the form of a donation to a charity in the MP's own constituency:

Labour said Bradley would tweet the following apology: “On 19 February 2018 I made a seriously defamatory statement on my Twitter account, ‘Ben Bradley MP (bbradleymp)’, about Jeremy Corbyn, alleging he sold British secrets to communist spies. I have since deleted the defamatory tweet. I have agreed to pay an undisclosed substantial sum of money to a charity of his choice, and I will also pay his legal costs.

“I fully accept that my statement was wholly untrue and false. I accept that I caused distress and upset to Jeremy Corbyn by my untrue and false allegations, suggesting he had betrayed his country by collaborating with foreign spies.

“I am very sorry for publishing this untrue and false statement and I have no hesitation in offering my unreserved and unconditional apology to Jeremy Corbyn for the distress I have caused him.”

"He has sided again and again with anti-Semites rather than Jews..."

The knives are out for Corbyn. The lobby does its bit...

"The 'anti-Semitism' witch-hunt - whose real target is Jeremy Corbyn and anyone else who supports Palestinian rights - will not end until it is either victorious or defeated. It's time for the whole left to finally step up to this task.'

There's something of that, but Corbyn also left himself open to it on a couple of occasions.  That, and the Russian poisoning reaction (although he was not incorrect), has dropped Labour a couple of points behind the Conservatives.  But that's likely temporary.

Stop Jeremy Corbyn's Mistrial by  Media Over Anti-Semitism

https://t.co/mpLK0Vv0XQ

"More than 40 academics write to condemn anti-Corbyn bias in media coverage of the antisemitism debate..."

"Just because the UK Israel Lobby which overwhelmingly supports Tories and their media allies say Labour has an anti-Semitism problem, doesn't mean it does. In fact it doesn't."

Jeremy Corbyn Apologises  For Anti-Semitism in Labour and Admits its a 'Clear' Problem...

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/jeremy-corbyn-apologises-for-an...

"Writing exclusively in the Evening Standard ahead of a key meeting with Jewish community leaders, he offers his most contrite apology yet for the failings. His emotional mea culpa goes further than ever before by confessing the scale of the problem and by telling his own left-wing followers they need to change their thinking and behaviour..."

Corbyn caves. Blairites/Lobby wins.

Jewish leaders dismiss Corbyn meeting on antisemitism as 'missed opportunity'

Jeremy Corbyn’s hopes of reassuring the Jewish community over his efforts to combat antisemitism have suffered a blow after Jewish leaders labelled a meeting with the Labour leader a “disappointing missed opportunity” with little achieved.

In a joint statement read to the media outside parliament, the heads of the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) and Board of Deputies (BoD) said Corbyn had failed to agree to any of their requests, set out in a letter last month.

quote:

Before the meeting, Corbyn issued a strong condemnation of antisemitism, saying the party’s structures were unfit for purpose and that it must confront the fact that a number of members held antisemitic views. He said in the past fortnight alone, more than 20 individuals had been suspended from party membership, and more were being investigated.

Writing in the Evening Standard, Corbyn said: “We have not done enough to get to grips with the problem, and the Jewish community and our Jewish members deserve an apology. My party and I are sorry for the hurt and distress caused.”

Labour Anti-Semitism: Jewish Leaders Blast Meeting With Jeremy Corbyn as 'Disappointing'

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/labour-antisemitism-jewish-lead...

"The Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council have said their meeting with Jeremy Corbyn was 'a disappointing missed opportunity' to deal with the problems of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

'We welcomed Mr Corbyn's personal involvement in the discussion and his new comments recognising and apologising for antisemitism in the Labour Party but he failed to agree to any of the concrete actions we asked for..."

Apology unaccepted. The destruction of Labour will continue.

He did the politically necessary thing knowing nothing he could say would appease them.  These are some of the same folks who accused Ed Milliband of being insufficiently pro-Israel.
