Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has added his voice to those criticising the Daily Mail for their depiction of Ed Miliband’s father Ralph.

Speaking on London radion station LBC this morning, he said that the Daily Mail claiming that Ralph Miliband was “the man who hated Britain” was "out of order".

In a tweet on Wednesday, John Mann, the chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group Against Antisemitism, called the article on the late Ralph Miliband, which portrayed him as a disloyal Marxist, was a “classical age-old antisemitic smear about disloyal Jews”.

In this week’s JC Jonathan Freedland reminds readers that “antisemitism in Britain often works that way: latent and hinted at, rather than overt”.
