UK's May: Never thought I'd see Labour accused of antisemitism by ex-party member

LONDON - 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 antisemitism.
"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 antisemitism by a former member of that party."On Monday, seven Labour lawmakers quit over leader Jeremy Corbyn's approach to Brexit and a row over antisemitism, saying Britain's main opposition party had been "hijacked by the machine politics of the hard left."
