The Tory leader
I am delighted to have this opportunity to wish the Jewish community a very happy and successful Rosh Hashana.
Britains Jewish community plays a central role in the cultural, economic and moral life of London and the United Kingdom as a whole. The values that stand behind its success such as education, enterprise, family and community are many of the same values that we share in the Conservative Party as we develop our alternative programme to provide a fair deal for the people of Britain.
New Year is always a time for reflection, and I want to use it to emphasise our commitment to a tolerant, diverse and inclusive society in which nobody is held back and no-one is left behind.
Happy new year!
Iain Duncan Smith
