Jeremy Corbyn was heckled during a Labour Friends of Israel conference event, for failing to say the word Israel.

The Labour leader’s eight-minute address on Tuesday night in Brighton failed to mention the name of the country, drawing anger from one member of the audience.

He did get a few laughs though, diplomatically negotiating his way through the issue of people he disagreed with. 

He said: “I, as you know, have taken an enormous interest in the affairs of the Middle East for a very long time. I’ve been nine times on visits, I’ve visited many places in the region and met many people – some I agree with, some I don’t agree with, some … I have neutral opinions on lots of things.”
