Labour MP Ruth Smeeth Targeted By ‘25,000 Abusive Messages In Jeremy Corbyn’s Name’

Smeeth, who is Jewish, has said Corbyn should resign as Labour leader because the party is no longer a “safe space for British Jews” with him in charge.

She made the call after walking out of a anti-Semitism event attended by Corbyn after being accused by a Momentum activist, captured on film above, of working “hand-in-hand” with the media to damage the Labour leader.

Earlier this week, Labour MP Chris Bryant revealed 25 MPs from different parties had been sent a photo of someone who has been beheaded.

“More than two dozen of us have now had an identical email which says warning I am going to kill you and all of your family with a very unpleasant photo attached,” the former shadow cabinet minister told LBC.

“All the death threats I have had as an MP have all been through social media, either Twitter or Facebook or emails.”

Speaking at the launch of his “digital manifesto” on Tuesday, Corbyn said there should be “quite strict codes of conduct” for how people behave online.

“I absolutely will not allow any sort of it whatsoever anywhere around our campaign – we do chase it down, we do stop it,” he said.
