Jeremy Corbyn won’t have Labour whip restored, says Sir Keir Starmer | Politics News



Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will not have the party’s whip restored, his successor Sir Keir Starmer has announced.

It means that Mr Corbyn will not officially be a Labour MP.

In a statement on Wednesday, Sir Keir said: “I’m the leader of the Labour Party, but I’m also the leader of the Parliamentary Labour Party.

“Jeremy Corbyn’s actions in response to the EHRC report undermined and set back our work in restoring trust and confidence in the Labour Party’s ability to tackle antisemitism.

“In those circumstances, I have taken the decision not to restore the whip to Jeremy Corbyn. I will keep this situation under review.”
