An overwhelming 78 per cent of British Jews would prefer a no deal Brexit over the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister, a new poll has confirmed.

Asked to decide between both scenarios as their least objectionable outcome for the UK in the coming months, just 12 per cent of respondents to the survey, conducted by the polling firm Survation for the JC, said they would rather see the Labour leader in Downing Street than exiting the European Union without a deal.

When asked separately whether they would consider voting Labour at the next general election with or without Mr Corbyn as Labour leader, just 7 per cent said they would consider supporting the party.

But in a sign that Labour could win back substantial numbers of Jewish voters if Mr Corbyn were no longer in charge, 42 per cent said they could vote for the party with a new leader.

Wes Streeting, Labour MP for Ilford North, told the JC: “I’m afraid this poll reflects what I hear on the doorstep in my own community, but seeing it so starkly presented is devastating – not least for significant numbers of Jews who clearly want to vote Labour but can’t because of Jeremy Corbyn.

“Given our very public failure to tackle antisemitism within our ranks, who can blame them?”
