JEREMY Corbyn was shamed over his party’s anti-Semitism crisis by Nancy Pelosi – the most senior US Democrat.
She told the Labour leader he must “forcefully confront” the anti-Jew racism in a “candid discussion” between their two teams.
But when the Labour leader tweeted about the meeting he failed to mention the word “anti-Semitism” and instead said they discussed how to “confront racism”.
The meeting piles further pressure on Mr Corbyn, whose party has been blown apart by the anti-Semitism row.
Labour MP Louise Ellman, who is Jewish, said the crisis is a “stain” on the party.
She told the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme: “It is an undisputed fact that since Jeremy Corbyn became the leader of the Labour Party, anti-Semitism within the Labour Party has developed and it is rife and it has not been dealt with yet.
“The only time where it is dealt with properly is when there is public exposure.”
The party is facing a full-blown investigation by Britain’s equalities watchdog over allegations it discriminated against Jews.
