The Board of Deputies of British Jews has issued the following statement following reports of Jenny Tonge’s suspension from the Liberal Democrat Party:

Jonathan Arkush, President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said: “Jenny Tonge’s suspension from the Liberal Democrat Party has to be the right decision. She is a repeat offender, propagating the worst antisemitic tropes over and over again. Yesterday, we raised her antics as a key topic in our meeting with Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron and it is heartening that our comments were taken on board. This action by the Liberal Democrats should send a clear message that antisemitism must have no place in their party or any other.”
