Within minutes of Jeremy Corbyn's suspension from the Labour party a Go Fund Me page was set up by 'fans' of the former labour leader.
It was Corbyn's twitter response to The Human Rights Watchdog's report, and not his behaviour in the scandal itself, that earned the demented trotskyist a ban from the Labour party.
The report was a vindication for all those who had reported anti-semitism in the party, and a damning indictment of Corbyn himself who was leader of the party at the time. But, it was not the report itself that prompted Keir Starmer to suspend his former boss from the party, it was the response issued by Corbyn to it that triggered the action.
The landmark report found 'significant failings in the way the Labour Party has handled anti-Semitism complaints over the last four years'. But Corbyn sparked fury in a statement released this morning by saying:
"the scale of the problem was also dramatically overstated for political reasons by our opponents inside and outside the party, as well as by much of the media".
This prompted current Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer to suspend him from the party this morning. Since then, thousands in donations been made to 'Jeremy's Legal Fund' online and #standwithcorbyn is trending on Twitter as hundreds of other Labour supporters share Corbyn's views and beliefs.
Less than 24 hours after being created, the £20,000 target was smashed and quickly rose to more than £200,000, with the figure currently standing at £347,028.
