Labour MPs boycott newly-elected Lisa Forbes’ official photocall over anti-Semitism row


Colleagues of a newly elected Labour MP boycotted her official photograph yesterday after she was accused of anti-Semitism.

Only 30 Labour MPs – just over 10 per cent of the total number – showed up to appear alongside Lisa Forbes, who won the Peterborough by-election last week.

Backbenchers said there was no official boycott, with MPs ‘exercising their own judgment’. 

Mr Corbyn, pictured with his new MP, told Miss Forbes he was ‘proud’ of her win. 

The photo-call came before Mr Corbyn suffered what was described as his ‘worst meeting’ with his MPs.

The Labour leader was assailed from all sides over Brexit and his failure even to mention the probe into anti-Semitism in the party. 

MP Jess Phillips also told him that members of the ‘Corbyn cult’ were being ‘protected’ from allegations of sexual assault.
