British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday she never thought she would see the opposition Labour party being accused by a former member of anti-Semitism.
"I never thought I would see the day when Jewish people ... were concerned about their future in this country," she said in parliament. "And I never thought I would see the day when a once-proud Labour party was accused of institutional anti-Semitism by a former member of that party."

On Wednesday, yet another lawmaker quit, claiming that the Labour Party is "infected" with "Anti-Jewish Racism."
