Board of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush, has praised Tim Farron’s decision to sack David Ward as a Liberal Democrat candidate in the General Election.
Jonathan said: “Tim Farron has made the right decision to sack David Ward as a general election candidate.
“David Ward has a track record of making appalling comments about ‘the Jews’ and blaming the UK itself for the recent terrorist attack in Westminster.
“This should signal the end of his dismal political career. Antisemitism has no place in any political party and must be stamped out.”
