Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called a "liar" by heckler at Jewish Labour Movement Chanukah party per The Jewish Chronicle

News that you won't find reported on the BBC.

'Jeremy Corbyn was called a "liar" during his speech at the Jewish Labour Movement's Chanukah party tonight in which he said there was "zero tolerance" of antisemitism within the Labour Party.

Mr Corbyn told a crowded room at the party's headquarters in central London: "I'm here because I want the party to be strong in all areas, I want the Jewish Labour Movement to be absolutely part of and involved with the party at all levels."

Prior to Mr Corbyn's speech, a plea had been made for the all those in the room to treat each other in a comradely spirit, but at this point a female heckler responded with the words: "But you hate us".

During the Labour leader's speech, the same heckler shouted: "Corbyn, you're a liar", before reportedly leaving the room.'

Imagine that it was a leading Conservative politician who had been so heckled, headlines on the BBC. However as it's the leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn not a word.

Where people would get the idea that the Labour leader and elements of that party have a problem with anti semitic sentiment is beyond me. It's not as though Jeremy Corbyn calls the antisemitic terrorists of Hamas and Hezbollah 'friends', appears on platforms with known antisemites and turns a blind eye to the anti semitic attitudes that many of his supporters espouse.

An independent news reporting agency would report fairly on such matters but the BBC is more like the Labour Party's propaganda arm than the unbiased news reporting service that it purports to be.
