Money Saving Expert founder Martin Lewis has accused Jeremy Corbyn of failing to tackle antisemitism in the Labour Party.

The 45-year-old personal finance guru has also attacked Facebook for not paying enough tax in the United Kingdom and revealed he limits the amount of time his daughter spends online.

Lewis founded the popular Money Saving Expert website and has a reported net worth of approximately £73 million.

In an interview with The Times he revealed that he receives anti-Semitic abuse online and that his family have been spat at for being Jewish.
