British Labor part splits in revolt against Corbyn

Seven MPs have quit the UK Labor Party in protest against Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership and his policies on Brexit and anti-Semitism. “For my part I have become embarrassed and ashamed to remain in the institutionally anti-Semitic Labor Party,” said MP Luciana Berger. She is joined by Chris Leslie, Angela Smith, Gavin Shuker, Mike Gapes, Ann Coffey and Shuka Umunna. They will stay in parliament as an independent group.

A prominent member, Dame Margaret Hodge, said she is staying in the Labor Party, although her reason embodies a grave indictment: “For far too long many of us have put up with intolerable & unprecedented antisemitic abuse from the hard left. But with my Jewish colleagues I want to stay and fight for the values, principles and soul of the party that was the natural home for Jews when I joined 57 years ago.”

    All leftist parties in the West will be split between Jew-hating globalists and their less hateful (but just as stupid leftist) colleagues. It is also happening in America where newly-elected Sicklamists and Commies have been handed the torch by the likes of Sanders, Schiff, Blumenthal, Cohen, Nolan, Schumer, Pelosi, Waters, etc. I hope that this will make it easier for voters to decide to make more sensible choices than the crazy left.
