A bunch of the borough’s chattiest Jewish gentlemen met with Wes Streeting yesterday.

The Ilford North MP visited Jewish Care’s Redbridge Community Centre at Sinclair House, Woodford Bridge Road.

Mr Streeting said: “I really enjoyed meeting the Chaps That Chat group at Sinclair House to discuss a wide range of topics from local council issues to national pressures on the NHS.

“Given the recent controversy in the Labour Party concerning Ken Livingstone, it was particularly heartening to receive such a warm welcome and support for the stance I’ve taken to combat antisemitism within the Labour Party and wider society.”

Mr Streeting was in the news last week after he accosted the former Mayor of London on TV and told him his anti-Semitic views meant he would not be welcome in Ilford.

Sid Green, 85, who has been a Jewish Care volunteer for the last 10 years, helped launch Chaps That Chat in Redbridge in October 2015 and due to its success is now working with the Centre on a second group.

Mr Green said: ““It was a pleasure to meet and greet with Wes yesterday at Chaps That Chat, 45 Chaps attended firing all manner of questions at Wes and he responded to each and every one perfectly.”
