UK political leader not a patron of the Jewish National Fund shock!

I got a reply to an email to Liberal Democrat leader, Nick Clegg, yesterday. Among other things the email stated that he is not a patron, honorary or otherwise, of the Jewish National Fund and helpfully provided a link to prove it. So here's the line-up:

Honorary Patrons:

Professor David Bellamy OBE

The Rt Hon Tony Blair

The Rt Hon Gordon Brown PM

The Rt Hon David Cameron MP

The Rt Hon Lady Cosgrave CBE

General the Lord Guthrie

The Rt Hon Michael Howard MP

Anthony Krais JP

Rabbi Dr Abraham Levy OBE

The Prime Minister of Israel

HE The Ambassador of Israel Ron Prosor

President - Shimon Peres

Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks

Rev Malcolm Weisman OBE

Look at it. A real hall of shame.

Hat-tip, Nick Clegg for not joining with such a nasty bunch of sheisters, oh and to Bess Mayhew from the great man's office for giving me the info. I've done a lot of searches for the JNF's patrons and never found a one hit document.
