'It’s a STALINIST attitude!' Tory politician hits out at Sadiq Khan after HEATED row

CONSERVATIVE politician Andrew Boff hit out at Sadiq Khan and said the London Mayor’s intolerance to criticism captures a “Stalinist attitude” within the Labour Party.

According to the Huffington Post, Dame Margaret said: “You’re a f***ing anti-Semite and a racist.

Mr Corbyn is believed to have responded simply: “I’m sorry you feel like that.”

The former minister expressed her anger over the decision of Labour’s national executive committee (NEC) to agree on a new code of conduct on anti-Semitism despite widespread criticism from the Jewish community.

Ms Hodge, who confronted the Labour leader following a key vote on Brexit in the House of Commons on Tuesday, said she stood by her comments.

She said: "I confronted Jeremy Corbyn in Parliament and told him to his face what I and many others are feeling.

"Under his leadership, the Labour Party is perceived by most Jews, thousands of party members and millions of members of the public as an anti-Semitic, and therefore racist, party.
