Jeremy Corbyn 'very sorry' over Labour party anti-Semitism

Google has banned eight Tory ads since the election campaign began

Mr Corbyn has apologised to the Jewish community before, but faced criticism for failing to do so in an interview with the BBC's Andrew Neil last week.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says he is "very sorry" for "everything that has happened" in his party regarding anti-Semitism.

Corbyn: "Can I make it clear?"

"Obviously I'm very sorry for everything that's happened but I want to make this clear I am dealing with it", Corbyn replied. I have dealt with it.

In response, the Conservatives says Labour's claim it will reduce living costs "defies belief", accusing the party of proposing policies which contain tax rises for "ordinary hardworking people" - including the scrapping of the Marriage Allowance, which could cost couples £250 a year.

The Labour leader demanded that the UK-US talks must cease until Mr Trump amends negotiating objectives to exclude pharmaceuticals, and accepts the role of the UK's National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in setting cost-effectiveness of NHS drugs.

The Labour Party was also up one point at 35pc.

Jeremy Corbyn's handling of antisemitism allegations has made him "unfit for high office", the Chief Rabbi has stated, with further warnings that the soul of the nation is at stake in next month's general election.

He said: "I think the chief rabbi's comments really ought to be taken for what they are. Very happy to talk to him".

Corbyn told This Morning he was also open to meeting with members of the Jewish community to discuss the matter.

In other news, it has emerged that Jeremy Corbyn wrote to U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday to ask him to revise United States negotiating objectives for a post-Brexit trade deal to ensure Britain's public health service is not included.
