British MP: “In the coming months we will work to outlaw BDS in the UK”
A British MP from the Conservative Party, Robert Jenrick, has revealed that the British government will advance legislation as early as the next parliamentary session.
Conservative British MP Robert Jenrick revealed (Tuesday) that the British government intends to advance legislation in the coming months that would outlaw BDS in the UK.
He made the remarks in a digital lecture at the International Conference on Strategic Leadership, between Israel, Australia and the United Kingdom.
Jenrick said: ‘I think we’re beating BDS here. There is currently no political party in the UK to support BDS, and this is becoming an increasingly fringe activity. What we want to do is pass legislation here, and I’m sure it will be in the next legislative program next spring. “Banning the BDS in the UK.”
This is an encouraging and rather unusual statement by a senior British MP who declares for the first time that the BDS activity against Israel around the world will be officially defined as illegal.
As mentioned, Jenrick said this at the International Conference on Strategic Leadership, founded by the Jewish-Australian philanthropist Albert Dadon, who was born in Morocco, grew up in Israel and emigrated to Australia over 30 years ago. Since then, he has become one of the largest and most well-known businessmen and philanthropists in Australia, close to senior government officials, and one who works to tighten the strategic triangle of countries – Israel, Australia and the United Kingdom.
He founded the conference with the aim of creating a common dialogue between key factors in Israel, Australia and the UK on a variety of topics and deepening collaborations in science, research, security and economics.
