I won’t stay silent

On Saturday and last night the Daily Mail printed stories about my Dad. The headlines called him “The man who hated Britain.” 

There was a time when politicians stayed silent if this kind of thing happened, in the hope that it wouldn’t happen again. I will not do that.

This isn’t about me and my family – this is about doing what’s right.

Speak up for decency in British politics, and add your name to mine.

It is perfectly legitimate for the Daily Mail to talk about my father’s politics but when they say that he hated Britain, I was not willing to put up with that.

My father loved Britain. After he arrived in Britain as a refugee from Nazi Germany, he joined the Royal Navy. He did so because he was determined to be part of the fight against the Nazis and to help his family hidden in Belgium. He was fighting for Britain.

Britain was a source of hope and comfort for my dad, not hatred. He loved Britain for the security it offered his family and the gentle decency of our nation.

The simple truth is something has really gone wrong when a newspaper attacks the family of a politician – any politician – in this way.

I won’t stay silent when it happens – that’s why I have written a reply in today’s Mail. I hope you take a moment to read it, and then say you won’t stay silent either. We can be better than this.
