Matthew Harris was the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary candidate for Hendon at the 2010 General Election and is a former vice-chairman of Lib Dem Friends of Israel. He writes here in a personal capacity.
Lib Dem Chief Whip (and Government Deputy Chief Whip) Alistair Carmichael has written this letter to Karen Pollock, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust: http://www.scribd.com/doc/122300465/ChiefWhipLetter, regarding David Ward's comments about "the Jews" and the Holocaust. I am very pleased to see that this letter has been written and sent.
I have never wasted much time blogging about Barnet Council. I have wasted lots of time blogging about other things, but rarely about that. There is a band of bloggers who spend all their time blogging about the Council as if it was Parliament and they were Private Eye...One such is Mrs Angry (I know, I know).
