Labour recently demanded the government launch an immediate inquiry into “improper interference in our democratic politics” by Israel. The link to this petition is below. Please sign it. The Israeli operative was denounced by the Israeli embassy and sent back home. The civil servant and Conservative official he talked to was forced to resign. This is no trivial matter. We should not have any foreign country trying to subvert the power of our democracy in the UK.
Further to the revelation made that a senior political officer at the UK’s Israeli Embassy talked of bringing down a UK Minister, other MPs, and influenced the setting up of groups within the Conservative and Labour Party, which are of serious concern."https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/177407
Shai Masot was filmed covertly as he boasted about establishing several groups, at least one of which was intended to influence Labour party policy, while appearing to obscure their links to Israel.
The disclosure comes as Labour demanded the government launch an immediate inquiry into “improper interference in our democratic politics”. A former Tory government minister also called for an inquiry into the Israeli embassy’s links with two organisations, Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) and Labour Friends of Israel (LFI).
Meanwhile, Masot is being sent back to Israel in disgrace, and a civil servant and Conservative official who was also filmed discussing ways to discredit MPs has resigned from her post.https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jan/08/israeli-diplomat-shai-masot-plotted-against-mps-set-up-political-groups-labour
