Stella Creasy receives antisemitic Christmas card


A Labour politician has posted images on Twitter of an antisemitic, Holocaust-denying Christmas card she was sent in the post.

Stella Creasy, MP for Walthamstow, said she had received the card on Tuesday.

It appears to show a drawing of two people, with one asking the other: “Do you still believe in Father Christmas?”

The second person replies: “Do you still believe in Holocaust?”

The message inside the card includes a handwritten note in broken English stating: “No Jew can be Prime Minister of England, no MP can be a Jew… We are all in a Holocaust and the white race people of USA, Russia, Europe…no shame…

“Re Trump… There’s 70 million people in our country Stella, you received 260 complaints. Get real. It’s the Jewish vote rig conspiracy. Stupid.”

After Ms Creasy, who is not Jewish, posted her tweet about the card a number of users of the social media site said they had reported the episode to the Community Security Trust.

Earlier this month Ms Creasy was targeted for abuse after voting for airstrikes against Daesh in Syria.

Anti-war activists marched on her office in east London and sent her photos of dead children.
