A veteran UK Labour party lawmaker on Tuesday accused leader Jeremy Corbyn of being a racist and an anti-Semite after the party adopted new guidelines on anti-Semitism, which have been criticized as too weak and falling short of a widely accepted formulation.
MP Dame Margaret Hodge confronted Corbyn in Parliament after the Labour top governing body approved the guidelines, the Huffington Post reported Tuesday.
Speaking inside the parliament chamber, but out of range of media, Hodge reportedly told Corbyn he is a “fucking anti-Semite and a racist.”
“You have proved you don’t want people like me in the party,” she said, according to eyewitnesses.
“I’m sorry you feel like that,” Corbyn reportedly responded.
