Timeline of Tim Willcox
At a unity rally on 11 January 2015 after 17 people were killed in terrorist attacks in Paris, many of them Jews, Willcox, while interviewing a Jewish woman who was explaining that Jews live in fear in France, interrupted her saying that “Many, many, many, many critics though, of Israel’s policy would suggest that the Palestinians suffer hugely at Jewish hands as well”. This question was criticised by many including historian and BBC presenter Simon Schama, Jewish Chronicle editor Stephen Pollard and the Campaign Against Antisemitism as antisemitic for assigning collective responsibility of Israel’s actions to all Jews. The woman was later identified as the daughter of Holocaust survivors. Willcox apologised the next day on Twitter, saying his question had been “poorly phrased”.
On 8 November 2014, Willcox stated that the Labour Party would lose funding from Jewish sources because “a lot of these prominent Jewish faces will be very much against the mansion tax”. The tax refers to a Labour proposal for an additional tax on properties worth $3.5 million or more.
