Ignore Selwyn

JEREMY Corbyn’s acceptance of a meeting with the Jewish Leadership Council and the Board of Deputies is welcome.

I trust it will dispel the idea — apparently held by some of his followers — that those organisations are wings of the Conservative Party.

The last thing we need now is for our Jewish MPs to follow columnist Selwyn Dorfman’s advice last week and abandon their posts.

I do take Mr Dorfman’s point about some hard-left people refusing to accept there is a problem, but how much clearer can Corbyn make it that he does see it?
