The Board of Deputies has condemned Baroness Tonge for her comments following the General Election results on Friday morning.

A spokesperson said: “We stand behind the 90 peers who are urging Baroness Tonge to give an unqualified apology following her latest antisemitic trope of blaming Labour’s election defeat on ‘the pro-Israel lobby’. She should also be ashamed that she spoke of the Chief Rabbi dancing in the streets at a time when Rabbi Mirvis has actually been mourning the death of his father. As has been proved time and again, Jenny Tonge is unfit to sit in the House of Lords.”
