A swastika has been carved on a lift in the Norman Shaw North Building of the Parliamentary Estate in London.
The disturbing discovery was made by Oliver Denton Lieberman, the Office Manager for Labour MP for Hampstead and Kilburn, Tulip Siddiq. Mr Lieberman tweeted: “Unbelievable but true — someone has scratched a swastika into the door of our lift in Parliament. Nazi graffiti in the Mother of Parliaments. A sickening act.” He added that he has reported the vandalism to the police.
A spokesperson for the House of Commons told the Jewish News: “We are aware of some highly offensive graffiti in a lift on the Estate and it will be removed as a matter of urgency.”
Campaign Against Antisemitism condemns this appalling act in the heart of British democracy and thanks the House of Commons staff for their swift response.
