Jeremy Corbyn has criticised Bradford West MP Naz Shah over a controversial Facebook post appearing to endorse the relocation of Israelis to the United States.

The Labour leader said: “What Naz Shah did was offensive and unacceptable. I have spoken to her and made this clear. These are historic social media posts made before she was a Member of Parliament. Naz has issued a fulsome apology. She does not hold these views and accepts she was completely wrong to have made these posts. The Labour Party is implacably opposed to anti-Semitism and all forms of racism.”
