ITV has shown contempt for the Jewish community as Good Morning Britain, its flagship morning show, features Prof. John Ashton on its programme yet again today.
Prof. John Ashton, a public health commentator, has a long history of antisemitic and infammatory comments, including comparing Israel to the Nazis and holding Jews responsible for the actions of the State of Israel, both of which are breaches of the International Definition of Antisemitism, as well as trolling Jewish women MPs.
He therefore has no place on our television screens, which is why over one thousand people have signed our petition calling on the BBC, ITV and Sky News to cease featuring him in their programming. You can sign the petition here:
So far, BBC and Sky News have both dismissed Prof. Ashton’s antisemitism as “political views”, and now ITV has shown contempt for Jews by featuring him again, even after his dreadful antisemitism has been exposed.
Campaign Against Antisemitism again calls on all self-respecting broadcasters to stop featuring this racist, hate-filled man.

Good morning @susannareid100,
Clearly @piersmorgan cares nothing for the concerns of the Jewish community so I thought I would reach out to you.
