Aidan Burley, MP for Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, was with a group of a dozen friends, some of whom were filmed toasting the Third Reich and pictured performing Nazi salutes at the ski resort of Val Thorens.
During a meal in a restaurant in the resort, Mr Burley, 32, who is Parliamentary Private Secretary to Justine Greening, the Transport Secretary, sat next to the member of the group dressed in a black SS uniform and cap.
At one point, a guest made a speech saying: "Let's raise a toast to Tom for organising the stag do, and if we're perfectly honest, to the ideology and thought process of the Third Reich."
Later, after moving on to a British-themed pub, some of the group, many of whom adopted thick German accents, chanted: ‘“Himmler! Himmler! Himmler!” and “Eichmann! Eichmann! Eichmann!”. Heinrich Himmler and Adolf Eichmann were senior SS officers directly responsible for the Holocaust.
I am not sure whether this is the appropriate forum for this post; but since antisemitism is a perennial topic here, and since there are two stereotypes about it that are utterly wrong - that it doesn't really exist any more, or that it is mainly a product of the Left - I thought I'd give this shocking example of behaviour by British mainstream Conservatives.
