She told Sky News: 'I don't know how many incidents of anti-Semitism we have to have for the party leadership to stand up and really listen'.

Labour MP Margaret Hodge, who lost family in the Holocaust, said: "Wanted: Leadership. If found: Please return to Labour Party HQ, Southside, London".

Hundreds of Labour staff yesterday signed an open letter accusing the party of trying to "smear Jewish victims and former staff".

Four leading Labour peers have written to Jeremy Corbyn, offering suggestions as to how best to combat address the issue of anti-Semitism within the party.

Baroness Smith of Basildon, the shadow leader of the Lords, was among signatories to a letter to Mr Corbyn in which the Labour Peers Group offered to establish a small panel to review the substance of allegations made in last week's Panorama programme.

"There's always lessons to be learnt, but I think the way Jennie Formby, our general secretary, has operated, implemented the measures, is getting on top of this", he told BBC Radio 4's World At One.

They wrote: "The objective of these proposals is to ensure the Labour Party can regain the trust of its members, supporters and the wider public".

"The concern that I have - and I have known Jeremy Corbyn for 47 years - is that he is not cut out to be a party leader".

China said Wednesday that further levies would complicate the negotiations. "Hopefully they will start soon!" he said on Twitter. The U.S. economy is the envy of leaders across the world, according to President Trump .

Both Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt have said they are prepared to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union without a deal, which is likely to significantly disrupt the economy.

The pair were both asked whether they thought the Labour leader is personally anti-Semitic in the wake of a damning report by BBC Panorama into the party's handling of allegations of anti-Semitism.

Former attorney general Dominic Grieve said on Tuesday that blocking a no-deal Brexit in Parliament would "technically" hard but added that: "if a government persists in trying to carry out a no-deal Brexit, I think that administration is going to fall".

'It's the very bad question'Sarah Champion said she would back a no-deal Brexit against no-Brexit.

Asked if he agreed with her comments, Mr Corbyn said: 'Anti-Semitism is a poison within our society, and as a party we have a process for dealing with it and we support all our staff for any stress that they're going through and dealing with.

The shadow cabinet is expected to meet on Monday to discuss the alleged antisemitism, and Mr Corbyn will then face questions from MPs.

MPs close to Boris Johnson have suggested they believe his administration could secure enough Labour votes to pass a new version of a Brexit deal, after Jeremy Corbyn said Labour would campaign for remain in a second referendum.

Our correspondent said there was strong support at the parliamentary party for those former members of Labour's staff who had spoken to the BBC about their concerns.
