Praying for defeat: Labour insiders accused of wrecking Corbyn campaign in leaked report

The Labour party has launched an “urgent investigation” into a leaked internal report on antisemitism, which has revealed evidence of factionalism and alleged sabotage that took place during Jeremy Corbyn's four-year tenure as party leader.

The 860-page report found evidence of a “hyper-factional atmosphere” at the party’s headquarters with regards to Corbyn, who was replaced by former shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer as party leader earlier this month.

In a joint statement with his deputy leader Angela Rayner, Starmer said on Monday that the investigation will look at the circumstances in which the report was commissioned as well as the “wider culture and practices referred to in the report”.

“We have seen a copy of an apparently internal report about the work of the Labour Party’s Governance and Legal Unit in relation to antisemitism. The content and the release of the report into the public domain raise a number of matters of serious concern," the statement said.
