Mike FreerMike Freer, Member of Parliament for Finchley and Golders Green since 2010, has criticised Sara Conway, following her claims that the Labour Party’s antisemitism crisis had been “weaponised”.

Conway, who is the Labour Party’s candidate for the Northwest London seat went on to say that the row had been “drummed up to such a level”, it had become “an endless back and forth that doesn’t work”.

In his statement, Freer, a long standing advocate of Israel and former officer of Conservative Friends of Israel, said: “I condemn the idea that antisemitism has been ‘weaponised’ or ‘drummed up.’ Tell that to the number of Labour activists and MPs like Dame Margaret Hodge”.

He further commented: “To suggest that the Commission for Racial Equality have launched an investigation into Labour as being complicit in weaponising the issue is laughable. The Labour candidate shows how out of touch and complacent the Labour Party have become”.
