According to a report by Reuters, on Friday, British lawmaker Ian Austin became the ninth person to resign from the opposition Labour Party, stating that it was 'broken' and had been infiltrated by the 'hard left.' Austin reportedly said that he was appalled at the treatment of Jewish lawmakers who had taken a stand against anti-Semitism and that the 'party is tougher on the people complaining about anti-Semitism than it is on the anti-Semites." Austin reportedly told the Express and Star newspaper, "The Labour Party has been my life, so this has been the hardest decision I have ever had to take, but I have to be honest and the truth is that I have become ashamed of the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn."
