All of Israel are proud chickens today!
‘We are the Champions’ was ringing out through Rabin Square when I left at just after 4am. Not even an unseasonal downpour (more than enough to disperse an Israeli crowd usually) was dampening this party. I planned to get a taxi from my hotel but...

Less than a week into the general election campaign and already we know the next Parliament will be missing two of Anglo-Jewry’s greatest friends in Westminster. Having decided not to contest their seats, Yorkshire duo Sir Eric Pickles and Michael Dugher will be sorely missed...

Livingstone brought Labour into disrepute, it’s an open-and-shut case
