The anti-Semitism scandal has haunted Labor since Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader in 2015.

Here is a timeline of the controversies:

April 2016:

Labor MP Naz Shah has been suspended due to anti-Semitic posts – including one in which she seemed to endorse the Israeli calls to the US.

She apologized and received a formal warning.

Ken Livingstone goes on the radio to defend Mrs. Shah – but causes new controversy by claiming that Hitler supported Zionism.

He is suspended by labor, but refuses to apologize and has repeated the claim many times.

He finally leaves Labor two years later, saying that his suspension has become a distraction.

June 2016:

A two-month investigation by civil liberties campaigner Shami Chakrabarti found that Labor was not flooded with anti-Semitism.

But the launch is overshadowed by Jewish Labor MP Ruth Smeeth fleeing it in tears after being accused by Corbyn supporter Marc Wadsworth of conspiracy with the press.

Critics accuse the report of a whitewash and Mrs. Chakrabarti is widely criticized for accepting a peer from Jeremy Corbyn shortly thereafter.

October 2016:

The Committee on Home Affairs says Labor is guilty of incompetence in dealing with anti-Semitism and creating a safe space for people with a & # 39; bad attitude toward Jews & # 39 ;.

March 2018:

It is revealed that Jeremy Corbyn defended an artist who painted an anti-Semitic mural and said that offensive art should be removed.

He apologizes and said that he had not viewed the photo properly before posting.

Jewish leaders are taking the unprecedented step of holding a demonstration outside parliament in which they protest against Mr. Corbyn's failure to tackle anti-Semitism.

Various Labor MPs address the public.

April 2018:

Marc Wadsworth is evicted from Labor after being accused of anti-Semitism.

Meanwhile, Labor Jewish members of parliament talk about the anti-Semitic abuse they have suffered in a powerful parliamentary debate – and prosecute their leader for not tackling it.

July 2018:

Labor leadership generates new anger by not fully adopting the definition of anti-Semitism of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance

Peter Willsman, a strong ally of Jeremy Corbyn, is secretly recorded and rages that Jewish & # 39; Trump fanatics & # 39; have invented the anti-Semitic storm that floods Labor.

In a furious rage at a Labor & # 39; s reigning executive committee meeting, he said he & # 39; surprised & # 39; was, there was evidence that party members hated Jews.

He claimed that & # 39; some of these people in the Jewish community support Trump – they are Trump fanatics & # 39; before they shouted: & # 39; So I will not be read by Trump fanatics who come up with duff information without any proof. & # 39;

August 2018:

Jeremy Corbyn publishes a video that says he is committed to tackling racism – but it is banned by Jewish leaders.

Corbynistas set up a campaign on social media to stop deputy Labor leader Tom Watson after criticizing the party's criticism of anti-Semitism.

The Daily Mail only publishes photos of Jeremy Corbyn holding a wreath at a ceremony honoring a terrorist associated with the Munich massacre.

The Labor leader maintains that he was there to honor killed others, but receives new calls to leave the scandal.

February 2019:

Nine MPs, including Luciana Berger, Joan Ryan and Ian Austin, are among those who have left the Labor party with widths by doing nothing about anti-Semitism led by Jeremy Corbyn.

Berger, the Jewish MP from Wavertree in Liverpool, had experienced a barrage of attacks from members of her own local party and broader abuse, said Labor & # 39; institutional anti-Semitic & # 39; had become.

Enfield MP Joan Ryan was attacked because she was the chairman of Labor friends of Israel. And Dudley & Ian Austen, who was an adoptive father, said he was & # 39; ashamed & # 39; for what the party had become under the leadership of Mr. Corbyn.

November 2019:

MP Chris Williamson, a close ally of Mr. Corbyn, leaves the party after being unable to stay in his Derby North seat during the general election. He was suspended after saying Labor & # 39; too apologetic & # 39; had been about anti-Semitism.

Corbyn was later confronted with his own anti-Semitist row after a major intervention by Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis. He accused the left winger of allowing the & # 39; poison & # 39; of anti-Semitism to take root in Labor. His comments were later supported by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Corbyn repeatedly refused to apologize to British Jews in a sharp interview by Andrew Neil of the BBC and said that Mr. Mirvis & # 39; mistake & # 39; used to be.
