A new study in the UK has found anti-Semitism is prevalent in the fast growing anti-vaccination movement.

The report’s analysis of 27 leading anti-vaxxer networks operating on Facebook and Twitter found that antisemitic content was present in 79 per cent of them.

The study — prepared for the government by Lord John Mann, its Independent Adviser on Antisemitism, and Dr Lewis Arthurton, an expert in molecular cell biology in health and disease — noted how countrywide lockdowns had left people feeling increasingly anxious and more susceptible to conspiracy theories about the pandemic.

KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Lord John Mann, the former Labour MP, about the study.
