LIB DEMS WON’T ACT OVER WARD TWEET

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

THE LIB­ERAL Democrats will not take dis­ci­plinary ac­tion against Brad­ford East MP David Ward over his tweet last month that he would “prob­a­bly” fire a rocket if he lived in Gaza. Party chief whip Don Fos­ter said that com­ment had not brought the Lib Dems into dis­re­pute and had not been mo­ti­vated by an­ti­semitism. The sub­se­quent apol­ogy from the MP “should draw a line un­der this mat­ter”, he be­lieved. The party had ini­tially said leader Nick Clegg “ut­terly con­demned” Mr Ward’s com­ments.
