POLITI­CIANS’ SURGERY

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment & Analysis -

I was in­ter­ested to read of the se­cret talks be­tween Pres­i­dent Shi­mon Peres and Mah­moud Ab­bas at the home of Poju Zablu­dow­icz ( JC Au­gust 19).

Sim­i­lar events took place at my home in St John’s Wood be­tween Oc­to­ber 1968 and Au­gust 1977 when it was owned by Dr Emanuel Herbert, a distin­guished GP whose fash­ion­able prac­tice in­cluded King Hus­sein of Jor­dan and other roy­als. It was con­sid­ered that pa­tients vis­it­ing a doc­tor’s surgery would not at­tract at­ten­tion.

Vis­i­tors in­cluded Abba Eban, Yi­gal Al­lon and King Hus­sein.

Talks con­tin­ued in­ter­mit­tently for sev­eral months but un­for­tu­nately were un­pro­duc­tive. Dr Cyril Nemeth Lang­ford Place. Lon­don NW8
