UK: Former UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom makes "Jewish bank" comment

Via Jewish Chronicle:
A former Ukip Member of the European Parliament has been accused of making an antisemitic comment after referring to an “international Jewish bank” recommending a second vote on Brexit.

Mr Bloom tweeted this morning in response to Lloyd Blankfein, the CEO of Goldman Sachs.

Mr Blankfein had tweeted yesterday, saying that the “#Brexit decision belongs to UK citizens, and I'm not one. But GS [Goldman Sachs] built its Euro biz in the UK on certain assumptions, pays taxes and employs thousands of UK citizens concerned about the economy and their futures. On their behalf, at least, I have to be interested in the outcome.”

In response, Mr Bloom quoted the tweet this morning, saying that “International Jewish bank recommends second vote & we should vote Remain. mmmmmmmmmmmm.”
