Jeremy Corbyn opens up about racism allegations against him

Early in this video interview, Jeremy Corbyn states that “to falsely accuse somebody of any kind of racism is a major dishonest and dishonourable thing to do.”

To This Writer, that is a welcome claim – but only if it is attached to an admission that, during his leadership, the Labour Party falsely accused many people of racism, and anti-Semitism in particular.

Let’s have a gander at the rest of the clip:

Okay – so there’s lots of other good material in there. The stuff about racism/anti-Semitism comes in around 27 minutes into the interview.

Mr Corbyn had already said that Labour Party officers had not kept him properly informed of developments within the organisation, so it seems strange to This Writer that he accepted their claims about party members being anti-Semitic without any apparent question at all.

… Even more so when we hear him referring to the Forde Report and the leaked report that prompted it, containing allegations about fellow MPs that he knew not to be true. If he was sure of that, about people he knew, then why was he so certain of the opposite about people he didn’t?

It’s the one subject on which he let us all down and, sadly, there’s no joy here for those of us who were so badly wronged with accusations that Mr Corbyn himself described as “dishonest and dishonourable”.

    To be frank he would have made us proud our children growing up in a great Britain but to me he listened to stammer and the rest which lead him up the garden path if he had had more hardness to rid the then party of these far right then perhaps he would have stood a chance but we now that he on the outside while the greedie ones reign
