Jeremy Corbyn leaving the chamber has not gone unnoticed elsewhere, Political Betting has these Tweets:
I simply don't understand why Jeremy Corbyn has left the chamber for this debate on antisemitism. I had him down as all sorts of things. I never had him down as a coward.— Tom Peck (@tompeck) April 17, 2018
Well, I don't hold Corbyn responsible for the abysmal contents of antisemitic Facebook groups he is a member of, or of disgraceful tweets done in his name. But to walk out of this, to show no solidarity with his own MPs? I'm really quite stunned.— Tom Peck (@tompeck) April 17, 2018
Ever seen him call out a racist on his own side?— GOsborneGenius (@GOsborneGenius) April 17, 2018
Of course you haven’t, he’s always been a coward with a thin skin.
From the beginning of all this I think he’s been more guilty of cowardice than anything else. He won’t confront; instead he retreats to his adoring base, again and again.— Benji Lanyado (@benjilanyado) April 17, 2018
(He has returned. After a lengthy, curious spell standing with his hands in his pockets behind the Speakers chair, he is back on the front bench.)— Tom Peck (@tompeck) April 17, 2018
