Just 3 per cent of voters think Keir Starmer has successfully tackled anti-Semitism within Labour, according to a poll. Almost a quarter of voters thought he had failed to handle the issue inside his party. 

Labour was accused of 'downplaying' the scale of anti-Semitism within its ranks after shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves claimed it had not 'let the Jewish community down'.

She insisted Sir Keir had intervened 'swiftly' in suspending two parliamentary candidates who made vile anti-Israel remarks.

The party withdrew support for its Rochdale by-election candidate, Azhar Ali, after the Mail revealed he had made anti-Semitic remarks at a meeting last year.

But Labour was criticised for being slow to act after The Mail on Sunday reported Mr Ali said Israel 'deliberately allowed' the October 7 massacre to get the 'green light' to invade Gaza.
