Mike leads the way in the fight against anti semitism

Mike Freer MP is pleased to announce that he's been elected as Vice President of the Parliamentary Anti-Semitism group.

Speaking after the appointment Mike said, “Representing a constituency with a substantial Jewish population I’ve seen for myself the terrible effects of antisemitism, which shamefully is a fact of life for many of my constituents.

“We experienced a surge in graffiti and threats last year when the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was dominating the news, showing that antisemitism is always bubbling under the surface and certainly hasn’t gone away. ”

“This committee demonstrates that antisemitism is being fought against at the highest level and I am very pleased to be able to play a part in that.”

The Jewish Chronicle has welcomed the election of Mike to this important role.

The Friends of Mike Freer congratulate Mike on his appointment. It is great to see that his fellow MP's agree with us that Mike is a valued addition to Parliament.
