Philip Schofield forces Jeremy Corbyn to say ‘sorry’ for Labour’s Anti-semitism scandal

Philip Schofield forced Jeremy Corbyn to apologise for Labour’s anti-Semitism scandal live on This Morning.

The leftie boss snapped at the veteran presenter as he was grilled on air over alleged abuse of Jewish people from party members.

Mr Corbyn said: “Obviously I’m very sorry for everything that has happened. But I want to make this clear, I am dealing with it, I have dealt with it.”

It comes after the Labour leader refused dodged giving an apology four times during an interview with the BBC’s Andrew Neil last week – despite saying sorry in the past.

Mr Corbyn has faced tough questions on his party’s reputation for anti-semitism after Britain’s chief rabbi said he was not fit for office.

Ephraim Mirvis says that “a new poison” has taken hold in Labour “sanctioned from the very top”.

But Mr Corbyn told Schofield and co-host Holly Willoughby that he wants “everyone in this country feel secure there is no place for antisemitism in this country.”

Mr Corbyn was also questioned on his claims that leaked documents proved Tory ministers had discussed selling off the NHS in a post-Brext trade deal with Donald Trump.
