Make a scene and confront people being racist or anti-Semitic, minister says

Britons should “make a scene” and confront people being anti-Semitic, a Cabinet minister urged today.

Communities Secretary Sajid Javid said individuals should “call out” racism and anti-Semitism and not just turn away. “We have to object when a line is crossed from legitimate debate to smears and abuse,” he was due to say in a speech at a Holocaust Educational Trust reception in Parliament today.

“Ultimately, we have to be prepared to do that most un-British of things — we have to make a scene.”
