UK: Ed Miliband postpones Oxford talk after anti-semitism claims

Via New Statesman (h/t glykosymoritis):
Ed Miliband has postponed an event at the Oxford University Labour Club after the student society was engulfed by allegations of anti-semitism. The former Labour leader was due to address the club’s annual John Smith Memorial Dinner on 4 March.

A spokesperson for Miliband told the New Statesman: “Ed is deeply disturbed to hear of reports of anti-semitism in the Oxford University Labour Club. It is right that the executive of the club has roundly condemned the comments and fully co-operates with the Labour Students investigation. Ed and the Labour Club have agreed that his talk should be postponed until the investigation is resolved."
