UK: Jewish Tory delegate abused by protesters outside party conference

The Jewish Chronicle reports:

A Conservative Party delegate has told how he was subjected to antisemitic abuse from protestors outside the conference in Manchester.

Stephen Woods, chairman of the Conservative Sale East and Wythenshawe Association, was leaving the centre with a group of Jewish friends, wearing kippot, on Sunday.

He said: “The abuse we had to endure was despicable, with a number of protestors screaming ‘Jewish Tory scum, get back to Auschwitz.’

“I have never heard such vile language. The whole incident left us all shaken up.”

Hundreds of people gathered outside the Conservative party conference over three days to protest against austerity.  Read more.
