Ronson warns on Corbyn as PM

CST FOUNDER Gerald Ronson has reiterated his stance that life for British Jewry would become “more uncomfortable” if Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn becomes prime inister, writes ADAM CAILLER.

Mr Ronson, who started the Jewish security organisation in 1994, told online Jewish news channel

J-TV that this will make it difficult for Jews who want to live their life in the UK as “fully identified Jews”.

He said: “I’ve been involved in fighting antisemitism for more than 50 years. The enemy is more sophisticated — the enemy is now the radicalised Muslim fundamentalist.

“The left were our friends 20 years ago, but now they are anti-Zionist and anti-Israel.

“If Corbyn became prime minister, and with the people he has around him, you will see an increase in antisemitism.

“I’ve always been proud to be a Jew, it’s in my soul and in my heart.”

Mr Ronson gave similar comments at CST’s annual dinner in March.

At the time, he said: “I know when the wind has turned and I recognise that smell. Look at Britain, from Brexit to Corbyn.

“As Jews, we also know that antisemitism is a warning about the wider state of society. We are the canary in the coalmine. But this is one canary that has no intention of ending up dead in its cage.”
