Only Now! Shame!

Apology, 800 years on, for laws that expelled Jews from England...

 

I'm not completely sure, but I think that England (+ its Principality of Wales) was the first kingdom in Western Europe to expel the Israelites.

But it welcomed Karl Marx.

Since it was a king (Edward I )who ordered the original expulsion of around 3,000 in 1290 – in order to avoid the repayment of loans of money (for war) that the Jews were obliged to make – why did the current and venerable Britannic Majesty not give this apology, in Windsor Castle or Buckingham Palace, to the Israeli ambassador and Jewish religious leaders ?

Shame! Shame!
