(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)

As many as 18% of UKIP supporters think “Jews have too much influence” in Britain.

And 13% of UKIP voters are less likely to vote for a party such as Labour – simply because it has a Jewish leader.

These interesting statistics come from research by Tim Bale, Professor of Politics at Queen Mary University of London, who is writing a book on the recent history of the Labour Party.

To be perfectly honest, I’m a little surprised this kind of prejudice still exists in Britain today.

Although, on the other hand, nothing should surprise me about UKIP when it comes to prejudice.

British voters open to a Jewish prime minister — but some are more welcoming than others
