David Cameron & Jewish Zionists – What’s Not to Like?

David Cameron Levita – His Jewish Lineage

David Cameron’s Jewish family name, Levita is the Latin form of the name Levite, a Jew descended from the Tribe of Levi, the son of Jacob and one of the original twelve tribes of Israel. The leader of the Levites at the time of the exodus from Egypt was Moses, who was married with two sons. It is entirely possible therefore that he is a direct descendent of the Prophet. If affirmed he would be more royal than the queen.

Emile Levita, who came to Britain as a German immigrant in the 1850’s is Cameron’s great great grandfather. Granted citizenship in 1871, he enjoyed considerable financial success, becoming a director of the Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China, which had offices in Threadneedle Street in the City of London. He took on all the trappings of an English gentleman – he hunted, owned a grouse moor in Wales, and started an educational tradition which has continued through to today’s Tory leader, by sending his four sons to Eton. Emile’s eldest son, Arthur, a stockbroker, married Steffie Cooper, a cousin of the Royal Family providing Cameron with a link to King George III, an ancestor he shares with the Queen – his fifth cousin once removed.

Team Cameron’s big Jewish backers 12/10/2006

Having been selected to lead the Tory party, by prominent members of the Jewish community, Cameron’s bid was championed and fully financed by his backers in his successful bid for power. The biggest Jewish donor to the party, while Mr Cameron has been leader is gaming magnate Lord Steinberg, who has donated £530,000, plus a loan of £250,000. Hedge-fund owner Stanley Fink has donated £103,000, even though he was a declared supporter of Mr Cameron’s leadership rival, Liam Fox. A further £250,000 has been loaned by philanthropist Dame Vivien Duffield.

During Mr Cameron’s campaign to lead the Tory Party, Jewish figures gave his team (as opposed to the Party) additional donations of more than £60,000. Direct donations to, “Team Cameron” in the leadership battle came from philanthropist Trevor Pears (around £20,000), Bicom chair Poju Zabludowicz (£15,000 plus £25,000 to the party), Next chief executive Simon Wolfson (£10,000 plus £50,000 to the party), former Carlton TV boss Michael Green (£10,000) and Tory deputy treasurer and key Cameron fundraiser Andrew Feldman (£10,000 through his family firm, Jayroma).

Beyond the donors, a small but influential group of Jewish Conservative officials and politicians were also key players in Mr Cameron’s campaign for the leadership. Among them was party treasurer and managing director of Cavendish Corporate Finance, Howard Leigh, who worked closely with Mr Feldman running the so-called “Team Cameron,” both were charged with broadening the party’s donor base. Mr Feldman is a close friend of Mr Cameron, whom he met as an undergraduate at Oxford University. Other senior figures around the leader included Oliver Letwin, head of policy. A former shadow Home Secretary and shadow Chancellor, Mr Letwin, like Mr Cameron, is an Old Etonian.

Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps, who seconded Mr Cameron’s bid to become Tory leader, decided early on that he was the man “of the future.” He backed his campaign because, “I saw that he had great leadership qualities.”
The Key Players

Andrew Feldman – met Cameron at Brasenose College, Oxford. He is a close friend and tennis partner of the leader. A member of the Tories’ so-called Notting Hill set, he lives in West London with his wife and two children. Mr Feldman attended Haberdashers’ Aske’s school, and, after qualifying as a lawyer, entered the family’s ladieswear firm, Jayroma. Having acted as fundraiser for Mr Cameron’s leadership campaign, he is now deputy treasurer of the party and is in Mr Cameron’s economic-policy group.

Michael Green – former chairman of Carlton Television, gave financial support to David Cameron’s leadership campaign. He said, “I am a big supporter of David Cameron but I want to make it clear that I have not supported the Tory Party. I have supported David Cameron’s quest to become leader,” he said.

Lord Steinberg — formerly Leonard Steinberg — became a life peer in 2004 and is a major donor to the Conservatives. Raised in Belfast and educated at Royal Belfast Academical Institution, the 70-year-old Baron Steinberg of Belfast was a founder of Stanley Leisure plc, the gaming company, serving as executive chairman from 1957 to 2002 and non-executive chairman since then. He is a former deputy treasurer of the Tory party and is a founder and chairman of his family charitable trust. His political interests are listed in Dod’s, the parliamentary guide, as Northern Ireland, tax and gambling, and Israel.

Simon Wolfson – A donor to David Cameron’s leadership campaign and to the Conservative Party, Simon Wolfson, 38, continued a family tradition when he became an adviser to Mr Cameron on improving economic competition and wealth creation. The son of Lord Wolfson, who was chief of staff to Margaret Thatcher, Mr Wolfson, chief executive of the Next clothing chain, was one of the youngest advisors to be appointed by Mr Cameron. Along with MP John Redwood, Mr Wolfson jointly chaired the advisory group that sought to reduce red tape and improve education and skills in the workplace. It also examined the country’s transport infrastructure.

Grant Shapps MP – As vice-chairman of the Conservative Party and seconder to David Cameron’s campaign, backbencher Grant Shapps persuaded parliamentary and constituency Tories of the virtues of Cameron.

David Cameron Spoke to the Movement for Reform Judaism 12 April 2010

Thank you for inviting me to write a few words for your newsletter. I have many friends on this mailing list, so as we’re now about to launch into a General Election campaign, this might be the last they hear from me for a few weeks. I would also like to send you my best wishes as you celebrate the festival of the Passover.

I am a great admirer of the Jewish people and your extraordinary achievements. I’ve long seen your community as a shining light in our society. To me, one of the biggest contributions of Judaism is its understanding of what makes a responsible society. Last summer, I gave a speech to Jewish Care where I talked about this idea. I quoted a phrase of Rabbi Hillel’s which I think captures it beautifully: “If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I?” That urgent, selfless moral compulsion to change the world for the better is right at the heart of the Jewish way of life. If I become Prime Minister, I want to see that idea of responsibility extend right across our society. A key part of that will be about building a stronger, more cohesive society – and that means doing much more to tackle the rise of anti-Semitism. I was appalled when the Community Security Trust told me that there were more anti-Semitic incidents in the first half of 2009 than in the whole of any previous year. We need big changes to root out this extremism – stopping preachers of hate from entering this country, banning those extremist groups who are already here, and doing much more to tackle radicalisation in our universities.

But I don’t just want to make our society stronger. I also want to build a bigger society. And we can’t do that without backing faith-based organisations in the good work that they do. Take faith schools, for example. They are a really important part of our education system and often have a culture and ethos which helps to drive up standards. Through our school reform plans, there will be a real growth in new good school places, and I’m sure some of these will be in faith schools.

So there is a lot I admire about your community, and a lot more that I think it can offer if given the chance. At this General Election, I’m asking the British people to have faith in me and the Conservative Party to bring change to this country. The truth is that we can’t afford five more years of this tired Labour government making this worse. A Conservative government will do much more to protect and empower the Jewish community in our society. Voting Conservative gives us a chance to make these changes and together, we can put this great country back on her feet.

Cameron declared himself a Zionist 2010

“I am a Zionist,” Conservative Party leader David Cameron told an audience of party supporters of Israel in London on Tuesday. “If what you mean by Zionist, is someone who believes that the Jews have a right to a homeland in Israel and a right to their country then, yes, I am a Zionist and I’m proud of the fact that Conservative politicians down the ages have played a huge role in helping to bring this about,” Cameron declared. The Conservative leader was guest of honor at the Conservative Friends of Israel annual business lunch, which was attended by some 500 people – including half the parliamentary party, 30 Conservative parliamentary candidates, former leaders, lords and Israel’s ambassador.

The UK before joining the EEC

I lived in Hampshire, England from 1970-1973. Almost weekly local newspapers carried graphic reports of huge numbers of French and Belgian shoppers travelling across the channel to Dover, Folkestone etc.  to purchase food, drink and many other household items. Significant savings were achieved even after adding in the cost of a return ticket. In light of the foregoing  we considered ourselves lucky that Harold Wilson’s bid to join the EEC in 1967 had been vetoed by General de Gaulle.

But bad tidings awaited the UK in the form of the introduction of the “Common Agricultural Policy” (CAP). The  hugely expensive policy had been forced on the EEC by the French who intended retaining their vastly inefficient “peasant farmer”  agriculture system. Once this was in place France dropped their objections to the UK joining the EEC.  Informed politicians warned the UK public that France needed the UK in the EEC so that finance would be available to fund their  inefficient farmers and this proved to be the case.

In 1971 Ted Heath’s Tory government (prodded by the USA)  opened negotiations with the EEC once more. Simultaneously they launched an expensive political and media onslaught on the UK public broadcasting the subliminal message that the EEC was simply a trading agreement and there was no threat to the UK’s sovereignty. The conduct of discussions were not openly broadcast and in time many aspects of the agreement disadvantageous to the UK unravelled. But the (USA owned) UK media and press clamoured for membership, through their heavy use of emotive headlines shaping and promoting USA and Tory  agenda’s.

Yet again the UK public was subjected to a massive con trick orchestrated by politicians and the media who, whilst extolling the virtues, (as yet intangible)  gave no mention  of the extortionate costs of joining the EEC.  Nevertheless  Heath, (assisted by a compliant media and press) without affording the UK public the opportunity of a referendum, agreed a treaty committing the UK to  joining the EEC  in January 1972.

Within days of joining the cost of living in the UK increased by around 40%, (without any increase in wages). Those of us living in the South of England formed “shopper clubs”. These organised weekend trips to France to purchase, food, drink etc. “The shoe had been transferred to the other foot.” What a nonsense.








Cameron resurrecting Project Fear bullying tactics in EU Referendum

David Cameron has come under renewed pressure over his conduct during Scotland’s independence referendum – after new revelations that his government put pressure on big business to try and play up anti-independence fears.

As reported today, a leaked letter from Serco has shown that the Prime Minister has pushed corporations to encourage the publication of anti-Brexit information – and makes clear that the UK Government did the same thing during the independence referendum and ‘managed to garner a lot of publicity’.

Commenting, SNP MSP James Dornan said:

“This damning new evidence lays bare the concerted effort of the UK Government to pressurise big business to try and whip up anti-independence fears – and gets to the heart of the sinister, behind the scenes campaign David Cameron ran in the final weeks of the referendum.

“Now we know that the UK government was pressing businesses to garner publicity for anti-independence scaremongering, people in Scotland will view every anti-independence pronouncement from the Tories in the same light – and won’t believe a single word they say on the issue.

“As Prime Minister of the whole UK, David Cameron had a duty to people in Scotland – instead, he put his partisan interest first and actively sought to undermine our economy, and it’s high time he apologised.

“But it’s clear that he hasn’t learned a single thing from the appalling way his government conducted their business during the independence referendum – and seems content to use the same Project Fear bullying tactics on the issue of the EU. “He should make clear that he will eschew the negative tactics of scaremongering from now until June 23rd – and make the positive case for being part of Europe.”








2014 – The Scottish Referendum

Retailers under pressure from David Cameron to back no vote in Scottish referendum

The UK’s biggest retailers are being ruthlessly pressurized by David Cameron forcing them to intervene in the Scottish referendum debate, pushing his message that a, Yes” vote next week will result in higher prices. He invoked Britain’s defeat of Hitler as part of a plea to around 200 business leaders aimed at preventing Scotland voting for independence. The Prime Minister said that it was as a United Kingdom that the Second World War had been fought and won, and that it was crucial that the country remained undivided.

Cameron’s remarks at the private gathering represent some of his most bizarrely impassioned comments so far, ahead of a referendum which is more finely balanced than at any stage since campaigning got underway. “He (Cameron) emphasized the need for us to do everything we can over the next few days to keep the union together,” said one of those present. “He wants us to highlight the dangers of a Scottish exit in any way we can.”

The so called, “initiative” will take the form of a letter to be released to the UK media in the next day or so. It is being led by Sir Ian Cheshire, the Chief Executive of Kingfisher, the business behind B&Q, the DIY chain. Other retailers understood to have agreed to back the initiative, so far include Marc Bolland, the chief executive of Marks & Spencer, and Charlie Mayfield, chairman of the John Lewis Group. Andy Clarke, the chief executive of Asda, and John Timpson, boss of the Timpson shoe repair business, also support it.

On Thursday night Cheshire confirmed his involvement: “Business leaders need to speak out and get the facts in front of Scottish voters who need to make a decision. It’s not scaremongering. There are costs and consequences of separation and I think the current system works better. Independence is possible but people have to decide if it is better. There needs to be measured debate.” So far, it is understood that Morrisons has refused to add its name and that several other leading retailers are holding back, fearing it would alienate vast numbers of Scottish shoppers. News of the move will fuel concerns in Scotland that a dirty tricks campaign is being co-ordinated through Downing Street

Competition and Supermarkets – A Guidance Note

In the event the Scottish referendum results in Scotland becoming an independent nation. At the date of change supermarkets would be free to establish new markets in Scotland in all respects. Assuming Scotland would retain, “special membership status” within the EU all, “new” markets would be governed by internal market regulations operating within Europe.

To that extent any restriction of trade measures that Supermarkets might seek to introduce would need to meet all aspects of the aforesaid regulations.

The European Commission may, if provided with reference, decide to order a market investigation so as to ensure a fair extension of the frontiers of competition within Supermarkets operating within England & Scotland.

Any costs inflated by carriage charges would need to be measured and imposed equally across the entire supermarket distribution area, (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). eg Asda, (based in Leeds) would need to introduce an added carriage cost for distribution to Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, Plymouth, Portsmouth and Cardiff.

It would not be permissible to add carriage costs to goods for sale in Scotland to the exception of the same goods for sale in England.

Foot in Mouth Mr Cameron ?

At a press conference, (attended by President Obama) Mr Cameron was asked about the ever changing nature of the, “special relationship” with the US. He replied, “I think it is important in life to speak as it is and the fact is that we are a very effective partner of the US but we are the junior partner,” he went on, “We were the junior partner in 1940 when we were fighting the Nazis.”

After the conference Mr Cameron was reminded, by some, “press hacks” that the US only officially declared war on Germany on 11 December 1941, shortly after Hitler launched hostilities against the US and four days after the Pearl Harbor attacks which drew the US into conflict with Japan.

The President of the Association for Veterans of Foreign Wars, said Mr Cameron’s comments would alienate a lot of veterans who had been fighting the war a long time before Pearl Harbor.

A BBC political correspondent offered that, Mr Cameron had been trying to be realistic about Britain’s position in the world, but it his comments had backfired in this case
