Board of Deputies Vice President Marie van der Zyl has condemned Aslef President Tosh McDonald for making an inappropriate comparison between Hilary Benn and Adolf Hitler.

Marie said:  “Hitler comparisons like this are lazy, ignorant and offensive. But then, what can one expect from someone who says that Daesh – a totalitarian theocracy that crucifies Christians and sells women as sex slaves – is remotely comparable to the anti-fascists in the Spanish Civil War? It’s time for Mr McDonald to engage with reality, and for people in public life to stop misusing Hitler references.”
