The career of Nazi-partying Aidan Burley may be approaching his political best before date, with the UK’s leading Jewish representative organisation in the country and holocaust charity issuing strong statements condeming the Cannock Chase’s behaviour as “alarming” and “an appalling insult”.
The Board of Deputies of British Jewry:
“We find it alarming that Aidan Burley MP did nothing to confront friends who were dressed in Nazi uniforms and were behaving so appallingly.”
Meanwhile, the Holocaust Educational Trust says:
“It should be obvious to anyone that this kind of shameful behaviour represents an appalling insult, both to those who survived the Holocaust and to those who fought to defeat Fascism in Europe.”
Cameron is unlikely to alienate the Jewish community to cling onto a boorish vote-repelling machine.
