The interview, with Middle East Eye, was fiercely criticised by the organisation Labour Against Antisemitism, which described it as “unacceptable”.

“By apparently appearing to invent a bizarre conspiracy theory about Conservative underfunding of this independent and highly-respected body, Mr Corbyn has once again brought the Labour Party into disrepute,” said Euan Philipps, its spokesperson.
