Andrew Bridgen: My hon. Friend is from the Jewish community and I am not. Does he agree, though, that we all have a duty to fight anti-Semitism, not because it is the right thing to do and the decent thing to do but because it is essential for the wellbeing of our wider society, as history shows us that anti-Semitism is always the thin end of a very nasty and very wide potentially racist wedge?

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Ultimately, that would make the world a far more dangerous place.

Andrew Bridgen: Has my right hon. Friend made any assessment of the Venezuelan economic model that is so favoured by the shadow Chancellor?
