MAY­ORAL CAN­DI­DATE QUES­TIONED AT JFS

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

JFS PLAYED host to the Con­ser­va­tive can­di­date for Lon­don Mayor, Zac Gold­smith.

The Rich­mond Park MP took ques­tions from 250 stu­dents at the Ken­ton, north-west Lon­don school last Thurs­day, cov­er­ing top­ics in­clud­ing vot­ing, the en­vi­ron­ment, the cost of trans­port in the cap­i­tal, and next May’s may­oral elec­tion.

Ac­knowl­edg­ing the low “youth” turnout at the gen­eral elec­tion, Mr Gold­smith said: “It’s not be­cause they feel ap­a­thetic, but peo­ple feel dis­en­fran­chised.”

Mr Gold­smith also re­peated his back­ing for David Cameron’s “zero-tol­er­ance” pol­icy on an­tisemitism.
