Labour Peer Baron Triesman this morning accused Corbyn’s Labour of being “institutionally anti-Semitic”.

The criticism came in the form of a resignation letter, after Triesman and two colleagues resigned the Labour whip over anti-Semitism.

This is the latest blow to Corbyn’s Labour, which has faced innumerable anti-Semitic scandals in recent years.

Corbyn himself is known for his affiliations with a number of anti-Semitic organisations, including terrorist organisations such as Hamas and Hezbollah.

Corbyn’s cronies are no better.

MP Naz Shah, ex-Mayor of London Ken Livingstone, and MP Chris Williamson have all recently faced similar scandals.

Around 30% of all cases of anti-Semitism reported within the Labour Party have been ignored, facing no investigation.

The lack of scrutiny within Labour is astounding. Now three Labour Peers have resigned, citing the institutional lack of accountability for anti-Semitism.

This lack of accountability “risks lending force to allegations that elements of the Labour movement are institutionally anti-Semitic” according to a Home Affairs Select Committee report in 2016.

Luciana Berger drew attention to this earlier this year, stating that she was “embarrassed and ashamed” to be a member of Corbyn’s Labour.

MP Joan Ryan left, stating that Corbyn’s Labour had “become infected with the scourge of anti-Jewish racism”.

MP Ian Austin resigned, damning Mr Corbyn for “creating a culture of extremism and intolerance”.

Frank Field, a Labour MP for 40 years, resigned stating that the party under Corbyn had become¬†“a force for anti-Semitism in British politics”.

Lisa Forbes, Labour’s newest MP, who narrowly beat the Brexit Party in the Peterborough by-election, was roundly condemned for suggesting Theresa May had a “Zionist slave masters agenda”.

The Peterborough by-election has been the subject of controversy for other reasons, with broad suspicion of Labour corruption.

Labour won the seat by only 683 votes, and critics have highlighted the vulnerabilities in the way postal votes are handled, which is open to corruption.

Labour anti-Semitism is getting worse by the day, how much worse can it get?
