Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Bernard Corbyn is the current leader of the British Labour party and the opposition leader since 2015. Corbyn was born in Chippenham and was raise in Shropshire and Wiltshire. Before pursuing his career as a left-wing political activist, he attended a grammar school in Shropshire and a technical college in North London. He was a Trade Union Representative while living in London and in 1983, he was elected as the Member of Parliament for Islington North. Jewish leaders criticized Corbyn for not recognizing antisemitism. Recently, Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, had a heated argument in the House of Commons over the same antisemitism issue. Both of them demanded apologies for racism in their respective parties. In 2018, Jeremy Corbyn called for the resignation of Amber Rudd, a member of the conservative party and the British Secretary of State for Work and Pension, because of the Windrush scandal.
