The Labour leader has been criticised after it emerged he joined a gathering of a group called "Jewdas" in his north London constituency, in order to celebrate the Jewish feast of Seder during Passover. Blair said he is certain that the general British public is not at all anti-Semitic, and that Labor had to make it clear that anti-Jewish sentiment in party ranks can not be tolerated.

It's all very well planting yourself on the far left of the political spectrum to give your party a clear identity and direction and the nation a shuddering alternative to the status quo at the ballot box, but such re-positioning comes at the price of greater scrutiny of some of the elements within that party - and the results so far have not been good. It has also opened other divisions with one of the groups that campaigned for Britain's withdrawal from the European Union, Leave E.U., arguing that Labour was uninterested in combating anti-Semitism because it relied on votes from Muslims.
In an interview with Channel 4 News, Mr Corbyn said the issue would be a top priority for MS Formby and insisted "absolutely strong and watertight" investigations would take place.
