Board vice president Jonathan Arkush has reacted to the news that far-right activist Joshua Bonehill has been arrested and banned from travelling within the M25.

He said: “It does not come as a surprise to discover that the Joshua Bonehill, a self-promoting far-right activist with a criminal record, has been arrested again – this time for sending vile antisemitic tweets to MP Luciana Berger. Residents of Stamford Hill will be comforted to know that Bonehill has now been banned by police from travelling within the M25, which hopefully ends any prospect of his proposed ‘anti-Jewish’ march actually coming to fruition. It is also reassuring to see that police are taking strong measures to curb the actions of haters like him.”
