UK: “There’s plenty of antisemitism in England. People don’t like Jews", says Jewish actress

Via Algemeiner:

“Corbyn handled it badly and I regret it, because he’s a good man and he’s not an antisemite,” Margolyes added. “But he should have gone, he should be out the way and let’s get on with new people.”
