    Labour leader Jeremy Corby has refused to say if he would order the killing of the head of Islamic State, as well as hinting his party could scrap Britain’s nuclear deterrent. “I am not a defender or supporter of ISIS in any way”, Mr. Corby insisted on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show Sunday morning.

    A furious row erupted inside and outside the Labour party last night after former London mayor Ken Livingstone was “given a slap on the wrist” over anti-Semitic comments. Mr. Livingstone — who had been suspended from the party last April over remarks saying Hitler had supported Zionism — was handed a further 12-month ban from representing Labour. He will remain a full member of the party and will still be allowed to take part in Labour votes and attend meetings. But MPs, including some from his own party’s shadow cabinet, described the move as “shameful” and said the party leadership...

    A councillor from Britain’s Labour party who was suspended after being accused of sharing blood libels online and for saying Israeli Jews should “relocate” to America has been readmitted to the party, the British Jewish News reported on Wednesday. The councillor, Ilyas Aziz from Nottingham, tweeted on December 31, “Can resume my Labour Party activities now that my suspension lifted. Thanks to all who stood by me in difficult times.” Aziz, a supporter of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, implied in a Facebook post in 2014 that Israelis should “stop drinking Gaza’s blood,” which he allegedly retweeted from a Muslim youth...

    Sleaford and North Hykeham by-election: Dr Caroline Johnson holds seat for Tories as Labour heads towards 'electoral disaster'A senior Labour MP has warned his party is heading for "electoral disaster" after the Conservatives stormed to victory in the Sleaford and North Hykeham by-election. Ukip emerged as the runner-up to the Tory candidate Caroline Johnson, who will be the new MP after winning a landslide 17,570 votes. Ukip's Victoria Ayling secured just 4,426. Labour fell from second place at the 2015 general election to fourth with only 3,300 votes, behind the Liberal Democrats who pulled in 3,600.

    Britain's exit from the EU could be blocked, Tony Blair has said, as he ruled out a return to frontline politics because there is “too much hostility” towards him. The former Labour prime minister said he had been accused of “treason” for suggesting that Britain keep its “options open” over Brexit. But he insisted that voters had a right to decide they want to stay in the EU after “scrutinising” Theresa May’s final deal with European leaders.

    The leader of Britain’s opposition Labour Party says Prime Minister Theresa May’s government is resisting “democratic scrutiny” of the Brexit process because it has not developed any plans for leaving the 28-nation bloc. Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday called on May to immediately spell out her Brexit negotiating terms to Parliament now that Britain’s High Court has ruled that Parliament must give its approval before formal talks begin. …

    Jeremy Corbyn indicated that the Labour Party will not try and block Britain’s departure from the European Union after the pivotal High Court ruling in London on Thursday said that Prime Minister Theresa May has to get approval from parliament to trigger Article 50. “Labour respects the decision of the British people to leave the European Union,” the Labour Party leader said in a statement. “But there must be transparency and accountability to parliament on the terms of Brexit.”

    Pressure is growing on the Labour party to suspend a key Corbyn ally after she criticised Holocaust Memorial Day. Jackie Walker, vice chairwoman of the Corbyn-supporting Momentum campaign group, generated outrage for the comments and also said she hadn't found a definition of anti-Semitism she could 'work with'. Labour MPs demanded she be 'shown the door never to return'. Ms Walker was allowed to return to the party earlier this year after claiming that 'many Jews' were chief financiers of the slave trade. Meanwhile Mr Corbyn risked stoking more controversy after it was reported that he is set to appoint...

    Jeremy Corbyn will commit Labour to fighting the next election on a platform of continued open door immigration from Europe, as controlling numbers can “fan the flames of fear” and make it “more difficult to take a holiday in Europe” for the middle classes. The leader of the opposition is reportedly “relaxed” about record levels of immigration, and “it is not an objective to reduce the numbers, to reduce immigration” his spokesman told Sky News.

    British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn turned down an invitation by Israel’s opposition chief to visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial, a British newspaper reported. Corbyn responded to the invitation, made in the spring by Isaac Herzog, the head of Israel’s Zionist Union political list, several weeks later, saying his schedule was full and that he would send either Tom Watson, the deputy party leader, or Iain McNicol, the party general secretary, in November, according to the Guardian. The invitation from Herzog came in April after former London Mayor Ken Livingstone said Nazi leader Adolf Hitler supported Zionism. Already suspended...

    The Labour party has suspended a prominent donor for likening Jeremy Corbyn’s team to Nazi stormtroopers. Michael Foster, a former celebrity agent who has donated more than Ł400,000 to the party, said the Labour leader and his team had “no respect for others and worse, no respect for the rule of law”. His comments were published in an article in the Mail on Sunday, titled: “‘Why I despise Jeremy Corbyn and his Nazi stormtroopers’, by Jewish Labour donor Michael Foster.” The piece appeared on 14 August, a month after the high court ruled against Foster’s attempt to stop Corbyn from...

    Jeremy Corbyn used his position in Parliament to call for the “complete rehabilitation” of Leon Trotsky, it has emerged despite dismissing concerns about hard-Left entryism as “nonsense”. In 1988, the Labour leader – then a backbencher – demanded the Marxist revolutionary and other communists have their achievements formally recognised by the Russian state. Mr Corbyn was one of a series of prominent left-wingers who put their name to an Early Day Motion, a form of parliamentary petition with no standing in law, which made the call. It came to light after parliamentary staff on Monday uncovered a paper record of...

    He said the final published version of the report promoted the labour market case for immigration but unpublished versions contained additional reasons, he said. He wrote: "Earlier drafts I saw also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural. "I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended – even if this wasn't its main purpose – to rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date." The "deliberate policy", from late 2000 until "at...

    Some of Jeremy Corbyn’s supporters were promised Ł25 from a secret fund to pay their fees to vote for the underfire Labour leader to retain his position against Owen Smith, it emerged last night. The Labour Party has closed a JustGiving page that raised more than Ł14,000 in three days to pay people to vote in the election. The money will now be returned to donors after the party’s ruling National Executive Committee said it breached its rules. A separate Facebook group, named Gimme 25, had amassed almost 3,000 members. On its page, it says: “Don’t think of it as...

    Seumas Milne remains on the staff of the Guardian and Observer while Labour pays him to work as its director of strategy. As a colleague on leave, he has the right to be treated with a gentleness journalists would not usually extend to spin doctors who do not enjoy his advantages. I therefore write with the caution of a good corporate man and the cheeriness of a co-worker when I say Milne could not do a better job of keeping the Tories in power if rogue MI5 agents had groomed him at Winchester College, signed him up at Oxford University...

    I’ve always believed that one should not speak ill of the dead – and especially someone so brutally murdered as was Jo Cox MP on Thursday. But when that dead person is being deified out of all proportion– rather as Princess Diana was after her death – by a mainstream media hand-in-glove with a prime minister who is desperate to create false hysteria in order to sway the most important decision of our generation – our vote in the EU referendum – then something has to be said, ...
