Is this the day Labour draws a line in the sand over anti-Semitism in the party, or begins a new civil war with Jeremy Corbyn leading the charge? Please subscribe here: http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

The Labour Party has suspended former leader Jeremy Corbyn from the party over his reaction to a highly critical report on anti-Semitism.

The human rights watchdog found Labour responsible for “unlawful” harassment and discrimination during Mr Corbyn’s years in charge of the party.

Corbyn later said the scale of anti-Semitism within Labour had been “dramatically overstated” by opponents.

A Labour Party spokesman said Jeremy Corbyn was being suspended “for a failure to retract” his words.

Newsnight’s Political Editor Nick Watt reports and Kirsty Wark is joined by Labour’s Deputy Leader, Angela Rayner.
