UK's former Labour leader Corbyn not re-admitted to parliamentary party

However, Starmer refused to re-admit him to the Parliamentary Labour Party, meaning he would not officially represent Labour in parliament and would continue to be classed as an 'Independent' MP. "Jeremy Corbyn's actions in response to the EHRC (Equality and Human Rights Commission) report undermined and set back our work in restoring trust and confidence in the Labour Party's ability to tackle antisemitism," Starmer tweeted. "In those circumstances, I have taken the decision not to restore the whip to Jeremy Corbyn.

UK's former Labour leader Corbyn not re-admitted to parliamentary party

Former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn will not be restored as a Labour Member of Parliament (MP) after he undermined efforts to tackle anti-Semitism, Britain's current Labour leader Keir Starmer said on Wednesday.

Corbyn was re-admitted to the Labour Party on Tuesday after being suspended following comments seen to be downplaying a report critical of Labour's handling of anti-Semitism complaints under his leadership. However, Starmer refused to re-admit him to the Parliamentary Labour Party, meaning he would not officially represent Labour in parliament and would continue to be classed as an 'Independent' MP.

"Jeremy Corbyn's actions in response to the EHRC (Equality and Human Rights Commission) report undermined and set back our work in restoring trust and confidence in the Labour Party's ability to tackle antisemitism," Starmer tweeted. "In those circumstances, I have taken the decision not to restore the whip to Jeremy Corbyn. I will keep this situation under review."
