Jewish MP Louise Ellman last night held on to her seat in Liverpool Riverside – despite a contest in which she and neighbouring MP Luciana Berger were targeted for their membership of Labour Friends of Israel.
Mrs Ellman benefited from a 0.3 per cent swing to Labour from the Liberal Democrats – meaning that her 59.2 per cent share of the vote was bolstered.
Labour MP Karen Buck has held Westminster North, incorporating St John’s Wood, in a nail-biting contest with Tory Joanne Cash.
During the campaign Ms Buck told the JC that she had always "championed" the causes of Jewish constituents.
Ms Cash, nicknamed a "Cameron cutie", criticised media coverage of her candidacy, which she claimed had "an incredibly powerful" impact on the result. In a recent Channel 4 Dispatches programme, her campaign was said to have received a large amount of money from Conservative Friends of Israel.
Labour have regained Bethnal Green and Bow, the seat won by Respect's George Galloway from Jewish MP Oona King in a bitter 2005 campaign.
With Mr Galloway fighting a losing battle in Poplar, Respect support plummeted by 20 per cent in Bethnal Green, where their candidate Abjol Miah lost to Labour's Rushanara Ali with a 14.1 per cent swing.
Labour's John Mann, chair of the All-Party Inquiry into Antisemitism, has retained his seat in Bassetlaw, north Nottinghamshire, with a 8,977 majority over Tory Keith Girling.
"I'm really pleased to see the result being a high swing to Labour which is totally contrary to what's happening elsewhere in the country," Mr Mann said. "I'm looking forward to getting back to work tomorrow and fighting the cause for the people of Bassetlaw."
His Labour colleague Denis MacShane, chair of the Antisemitism Inquiry panel, also retained his seat in Rotherham.
