The Jewish Labour Movement has said it has no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn's leadership following the damaging anti-Semitism rows in the party.

The no-confidence vote was passed "overwhelmingly" at JLM's annual general meeting, said the group, which has been affiliated to the party for almost a century.

A motion noting the "crisis of anti-Semitism" within the party since Mr Corbyn's election as leader was passed "almost unanimously" at the meeting.

The group said there were were "strong speeches" from Labour MPs Dame Margaret Hodge, Ruth Smeeth and Dame Louise Ellman at the event at a north London synagogue.

The no-confidence motion was passed despite a plea from Baroness Chakrabarti, the Shadow Attorney General, who led Labour’s internal inquiry into anti-Semitism, not to "personalise" the issue on Mr Corbyn.

She said: "My plea to the JLM is to stay in the Labour movement and to tackle racism together, not to personalise it and make it about Jeremy Corbyn, because he is one person and he won't be leader forever."

The JLM motion concluded: “The blame for both the crisis of anti-Semitism within the Labour Party and the party's failure to deal with it...ultimately rests with Jeremy Corbyn".

It added that "Jeremy Corbyn is therefore unfit to be prime minister" and "a Labour government led by him would not be in the interest of British Jews".

Speaking after the meeting, Dame Louise, the MP for Liverpool Riverside, said the no-confidence vote reflected the "deep anger about the Labour Party's failure to address anti-Semitism".

The JLM meeting took place after Labour again found itself embroiled in a row over its handling of anti-Semitism complaints.

The Sunday Times said it had seen leaked internal documents which showed the party's system for dealing with complaints had been beset by delays, inaction and interference from the leader's office.

Some members investigated for posting comments online such as "Heil Hitler" and "Jews are the problem" had not been expelled despite complaints being made a year ago, while Mr Corbyn's office had been involved in approving, delaying or blocking at least 101 complaints, the paper reported.

But Labour said lines from internal emails had been "selectively leaked" to "misrepresent their overall contents," adding that it was "committed" to rooting out anti-Semitism within the party.

A party spokeswoman said: "The Labour Party takes all complaints of anti-Semitism extremely seriously and we are committed to rooting it out of our party. All complaints about anti-Semitism are fully investigated in line with our rules and procedures. We can't comment on individual cases."

She went on: "Lines have been selectively leaked from emails to misrepresent their overall contents.

"One of the emails shows the General Secretary's Office ending the practice started by former staffers of asking the Leader's Office for their help with clearing the backlog of cases. This practice lasted for a few weeks while there was no General Secretary and was ended by Jennie Formby[following her appointment to the role]."
