As former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is readmitted to the party, will this re-open divisions over anti-Semitism once again? Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog
Labour has readmitted former leader Jeremy Corbyn as a member following his suspension last month.
He was punished after saying the scale of anti-Semitism in the party had been "overstated", in response to a damning report by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission.
Mr Corbyn issued a statement earlier saying he regretted any "pain” caused, but current leader Sir Keir Starmer maintained Mr Corbyn’s initial reaction to the report had been "wrong".
Should Jeremy Corbyn now have the whip reinstated? How will this affect relations with the Jewish community? And will this reignite deep divisions in the party?
