'Jeremy Corbyn's Labour is institutionally racist with most of its MPs at "breaking point" over the antisemitism crisis which has engulfed the party, a leading Labour MP has claimed.
Writing for The Independent, the former shadow minister Chuka Umunna said the Labour party, led by Corbyn, was guilty of institutional racism towards Jewish people.
"In short, the Jewish community has clearly been subject to differential treatment by our party these past couple of years that is discriminatory," Umunna wrote, adding it is "beyond doubt" that Labour has met the criteria for institutional racism, as set out in Rob Macpherson's 1999 report into institutional racism in the UK police.
He added: "The Macpherson Report defined institutional racism as 'the collective failure of an organisation to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their colour, culture, or ethnic origin.'
"It said this 'can be seen or detected in processes, attitudes and behaviour which amount to discrimination through unwitting prejudice, ignorance, thoughtlessness and racist stereotyping which disadvantage minority ethnic people.'
"Based on its actions (or failure to act), it is beyond doubt that Labour, as an institution, meets these criteria insofar as the Jewish community is concerned - something which should shame every member of our party."'
