Senior Labour MP, John McDonnell has slammed Alan Sugar for his latest tweet which appears to show an image of Mr Corbyn in a car with Adolf Hitler.

The tweet which has since been removed caused outrage with Labour supporters.

Mr Corbyns recent antisemitic Facebook groups have caused distress to thousands of voters.

In a tweet addressing the image, Mr McDonnell said: “People have contacted me about Alan Sugar’s tweet. I just make this appeal to him. Please delete and disown it. We all desperately need to bring people together now. We can hold strong views about each other’s politics but now is the time to learn from each other and unite people”

The Image can be seen below.

It carried the caption: “When you’re pictured at Nuremberg and claim you thought you were going to a car rally”.

Derby MP Chris Williamson said the post “promotes hatred and that is irresponsible” and brings his position as a peer into disrepute.

“I hope you will therefore swallow your pride, delete it and make a fulsome apology,” he added.

John Mann, chairman of the all-party group against anti-Semitism, said the use of Nazi comparators was “demeaning, unwarranted and dangerous”, according to the BBC.
