UK: "A non-Jewish MP... can’t be accused of any vested interest"

Via Jewish News:
It’s gloves off in Finchley and Golders Green as shock poll puts Conservative incumbent behind Jewish Labour rival

The race to be MP for Finchley and Golders Green moved into top gear this week after the Tory incumbent claimed he’s better placed to represent Jewish constituents – as a new poll gave his Jewish Labour rival a surprise lead, writes Justin Cohen.


Pointing to his extensive efforts on behalf of the Jewish community, including his campaign to help secure further funds for security at Jewish buildings and resignation as a ministerial aide to vote against the Palestine motion, Freer said his record on issues of concern to Anglo-Jewry was “unimpeachable”. And he added: “A non-Jewish MP is able to represent Jewish constituents more forcefully as I can’t be accused of any vested interest. People know if I’m arguing for the Jewish community, it’s what I believe and what constituents want.”
