LABOUR MPs last night furiously demanded the party set up an independent complaints system as they lashed Jeremy Corbyn’s failure to boot racists out the party.
Leading moderates said they had lost confidence in the party’s ability to handle the anti-Semitism crisis.

It comes after controversial Corbyn aide Laura Murray was appointed head of complaints – sparking a furious backlash from Jewish MPs.
Labour MP Stella Creasy told The Sun: “It’s unusual these days for any large organisation to deal with complaints in house, and it’s clear that the system we have in place at present doesn’t command the confidence of those it is designed to protect.
“Moving to a fully independent process would send a strong message that Labour will not rest until all anti-Semitism is rooted from its ranks.”
Meanwhile, Labour activist Amanda Bishop sparked outrage by calling on members to march on their local Synagogue to protest against an anti-Semitism suspension.

Mike Katz, chairman of the Jewish Labour Movement, said the comment was “truly beyond belief”.
He said: “When is ‘let’s march on the Synagogue’ ever the right reaction? Won’t have it from neo-Nazis. Won’t have it from supposed progressives.”
Labour MPs unanimously passed the motion demanding an independent complaints procedure at meeting last night.
