Cameron's anti-extremist promises

November 24, 2016 22:54

Conservative leader David Cameron promises "I will banish extremists from Britain," according to the JC's headline, going on to say that his party "...would never ally with a party we believed to be antisemitic, led by antisemites or with links to the far right."

I wonder if this means the Tories' European friends from Prawo i Sprawiedliwość and Tēvzemei un Brīvībai/LNNK, the latter being the party notorious for including members who attend events celebrating the Waffen-SS?

Oh, David. We know there's a General Election just around the corner and you're desperate for votes now your lead in the opinion polls has slipped so much, but you're so transparent we can see right through your attempt to persuade British Jews to tick your party's box at the ballot box. Perhaps if your actions backed up your words it'd be a different matter, but if you associate with blatant antisemites people are going to assume you're one too.
