eremy Corbyn is “yesterday’s man, he’s absolutely irrelevant,” said Jewish MP Dame Margaret Hodge just minutes before the former leader was suspended from  the Labour Party.

The bombshell move against the left-winger is a symbolic slice of justice for the Jewish victims of Labour’s anti-Semitism scandal.

But the party has much more to do to get rid of the anti-Semites whose views are one of the most ancient and insidious forms of racism.  

Mr Corbyn contests his suspension and says he has a “zero tolerance” policy towards racism.

But it is undeniable that under his leadership cranks, holocaust deniers and conspiracy theorists flocked to the party.  

The moderate wing of the Labour Party will be delighted, many were openly critical of Mr Corbyn’s leadership.  

Mr Corbyn’s swift suspension echoes the purge Neil Kinnock took against the Militant tendency in the 1980s.
