Anti Semitic adverts/comments

Asked if the Prime Minister expected to be challenged by the Board of Deputies this evening about the anti Semitic adverts put up by the Labour Party, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that they were Labour Party posters and it would therefore be inappropriate for him to comment on them.

Asked if that extended to commenting on the Mayor of London’s anti Semitic comments, the PMOS said that as we commented at the time, those remarks were made by the Mayor of London, and it was for him to answer for them, not us.

Put to him that he had made comments at the time of the Mayor’s words, the PMOS said that he had commented about the Prime Minister’s position, and those comments remained.

Asked why he couldn’t comment on the posters, but he could comment about the Mayor of London, the PMOS said he was asked about adverts published by the Labour Party, so he could not comment. With regards to the Mayor’s remarks, we had already said all we had to say on the matter.
