eremy Corbyn has urged his Labour supporters to “stay in the party” to fight for left-wing principles after his suspension.

Mr Corbyn was suspended from the party on Thursday after the human rights watchdog found it broke equality law in its handling of anti-Semitism.

The Labour leader of five years rejected some of the findings of the Equality and Human Rights Commission report and claimed the issue had been “dramatically overstated for political reasons” by his critics.

His comments prompted Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer to take decisive action against his predecessor.

But in a broadcast interview in Islington following the removal of the whip, Mr Corbyn called for calm and for members to “make the case” for left-wing values internally.
