Jeremy Corbyn’s resistance to issuing an apology amid allegations of antisemitism in the Labour party leads most of the front pages on Wednesday. Corbyn, who was questioned about the long-running issue by the BBC’s Andrew Neil, declined to apologise and rejected claims that antisemitism had risen in the party under his leadership.

The Times’ splash headline is “Corbyn refuses to apologise”, while the Telegraph’s is only slightly different: “Corbyn refuses to apologise to Jews”.

The anti-Labour tabloids treat the story with a more dramatic flourish. The Mail headline says “Torn apart” while the Express prefers to ask the question: “Has Corbyn’s horror show gifted Boris keys to No 10?”.

The Mirror ignores the Corbyn story and keeps up the attack on the possibility of the Conservatives doing post-Brexit deals with the US to supply medicines to the NHS. “Tory minister’s trade talks with US drug firm boss”.
