SIR - No one can accuse Jeremy Corbyn of being a political careerist (T&A letters, May 9).

He has always represented the wider movement without any thought for his own benefit.

Regarding the comments on anti-Semitism, the Labour Party Manifesto of 2017 is quite clear on its desire for equality in seeking to build a society free from all forms of racism, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.

Did the Tory manifesto make the same commitment?

Finally in the same edition of the Telegraph and Argus the question has to be asked on how the disgraced Bradford Councillor, who was jailed for 9 years, managed to be selected by the Conservatives to represent them on the Council?
