Despite being rebuked, the Nazi left in the UK is blaming Labour’s rout on the “Jewish vote.”
Labour’s deep and dangerous antisemitism problem doesn’t go away with Corbyn. It’s the party, not just its leader.
Notorious antisemite Ken Livingstone said the UK’s brutal election result is “the end” for Jeremy Corbyn, and blamed “the Jewish vote” for contributing to the losses. The former Labour MP and Mayor of London said his friend and ally Jeremy Corbyn had paid the price for several aspects of his campaign.
“The Jewish vote wasn’t very helpful,” Mr Livingstone said.
“Jeremy should have tackled that issue far earlier than he did.
“It looks like the end for Jeremy, which is disappointing for me since I’m a close ally.”

Jeremy Corbyn quits as Labour leader after being steamrolled by Boris Johnson

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn announced his resignation as head of the party after a stunning loss in the United Kingdom’s general election.
Corbyn, dogged by his failure to tackle anti-Semitism in his party and his attempt to bring the party further to the left alienated voters who traditionally voted Labour. Corbyn was seen as fiercely hostile toward Israel and expressed sympathies for anti-Israel terrorist groups.
Thursday’s vote was the worst result for the party since the 1930s.
After the election, Corbyn said it was a “very disappointing night for the Labour Party” and said he would not be helming the party as it goes into the next election, though he said he would stay on during a period of “reflection” after the campaign.
“Obviously, I’m very sorry for what has happened, but I want to make this clear: I am dealing with it. I have dealt with it,” Corbyn told ITV. “Other parties are also affected by anti-Semitism. Candidates have been withdrawn by the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives and by us because we do not accept it in any form whatsoever.”
With results still filtering in, Conservative Party leader and current Prime Minister Boris Johnson was set to win a majority of more than 80 seats, the best result for the party since Margaret Thatcher’s majority of 102 in 1987.
The pound rose as much as 2% against both the dollar and the euro.
