Chuka Umunna MP described to Sky News that he knows that Labour is “institutionally racist” because of how they have handled the antisemitism row that engulfed the party under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.
Umunna the Streatham MP spoke to Sophy Ridge at Sky News, he said when quizzed whether or not Labour was racist institutionally:
“Yes I do. It’s very painful for me to say that.
“Part of the reason that I joined the Labour Party [and] my family started supporting the party was because it was an anti-racist party and I think the failure to deal with the racism that is antisemitism in particular and clearly is a problem.
“It’s a sadness to listen to you talk about what has happened and transpired over the summer, because we failed to deal with this issue properly and most recently whether or not we adopt the International Holocaust Memorial Alliance’s definition of antisemitism, which we should have done right at the beginning of the summer.”
Chuka Umunna was slammed by the Labour Chairman for telling Jeremy Corbyn to “call off the dogs” which targets more moderate Labour MPs in the party, he also called on Umunna to apologise.
High-profile Labour figures like Frank Field have already resigned for similar reasons and now Chuka Umunna is another veteran Labour MP already basically contemplating leaving Labour and admitting they are an “Institutionally Racist Political Party”, one thing is clear Labour is now the new nasty party in British politics. Labour was once a party for the working-class and now it has become a weird, ugly and divisive cult.
