Simon Montefiore was born in London. His father was Stephen Eric Sebag Montefiore and his brother is Hugh Sebag-Montefiore. They are descended from a line of wealthy Sephardi Jews who were diplomats and bankers all over Europe and who originated from Morocco and Italy.

After the Edict of Expulsion was issued against the Jews in Spain of 1492, some of Montefiore's ancestors stayed in the country whilst remaining secretly Jewish. During the reign of Philip II of Spain, one of them became governor of a province of Mexico, where he and his family were denounced by a political rival and tortured by the Inquisition. Two teenaged girls were burned alive in Mexico City while a son escaped to Italy and changed his name to Montefiore.[3]

At the start of the 19th century, Montefiore's great-great-uncle, Sir Moses Montefiore, was an international financier who worked with the Rothschild family and who became a philanthropist.[4] His mother, Phyllis April Jaffé, comes from a Lithuanian Jewish family of scholars.

Her parents fled the Russian Empire at the beginning of the 20th century. They bought tickets for New York City, but were cheated, being instead dropped off at Cork, Ireland. Due to the Limerick boycott in 1904 his grandfather Henry Jaffé left the country and moved to Newcastle, England.

Montefiore was educated at Ludgrove School and Harrow School where he was an editor of the school newspaper, The Harrovian; he interviewed Margaret Thatcher for The Harrovian in the autumn of 1983.[5]. He read history at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge[6] where he received his Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD).[7] He won an Exhibition to Caius College

Why shouldn't a friend of cameron be allowed to present an a-political history program? Would anyone not left of centre be banned in your ideal world?
I'm guessing the real problem here is, what with you being a corbynite, is he's Jewish.

Haha thats funny.
Who were the biggest opponent to the Emancipation of Jews in England and protested loudest against Lionel Rothschild being allowed to take his seat in parliament?
The Tories.

It was only when the said Jews started greasing the ballbearing with cash did Emancipation actually happen.
Strange that isnt it?

Not worried about that, it’s the new Labour Party and it’s membership and voters,  that’s where the racism is to be found

When did it happen?
It was constant upto around 1850 in all walks of life, but started changing around 1830s.
The Catholics were 'accepted' first, but the Jews were still banned from many areas, parliament being one because they couldnt swear the oath as Jesus the savour (from memory) and the Tories continually opposed the changing of the wording to allow for Jewish MPs.

Lionel Rothschild was backed by the Liberal Party and won three times for London but was resisted a place in parliament.
Bills kept coming to change their lot but mostly tories voted them down.

That is until the Rothschilds flushed out prejudice with cash, even going so far as to influencing Prince Albert with a number of loans allegedly used to purchase Balmoral and its grounds...Albert being instrumental in 'winning over' significant members of the tories opposed to Jews.

You see its the funding that does it, and has done ever since. It's remarkable how one seems to lose whatever it is you stand for when cash is offered.
