Freud back on list

By Simon Round, April 22, 2009

Of all the newspaper reports following the death of Sir Clement Freud last week, the one which he would be least happy about was the story that appeared on the JC’s website.

Back in 1974, when Freud was a Liberal MP, he demanded that he be removed from a list of Jewish parliamentarians compiled by the JC — despite the fact that he came from a Jewish family which fled the Nazis and that his grandfather was the Jewish psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud.

If we ever make a list of deceased Jewish Members of Parliament, rest assured that Freud will be on it.
