Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to a tweet by George Galloway’s in which he wrote that Tottenham’s defeat in the Champions League final meant “no Israel flags on the cup”.
Marie said: “We would like to thank Tottenham Hotspur FC for calling out the ‘blatant antisemitism’ in George Galloway’s tweet. We also applaud talkRADIO for taking this poisonous and divisive figure off air. His attempt to bring hatred into a wonderful occasion for English football has attracted the derision it deserves.”
