For ten years Lee Scott represented the constituency of Ilford North in London. He fought four elections, lost the last two and won't be standing again — but not because he lost.
"I wouldn't put my family through what we went through in the last three of those four elections," says Scott, who is Jewish.
Two people came up to him on a Friday afternoon calling him a "dirty Jewish pig" and "saying they were going to kill me". Some of his campaign team were approached in the street and asked: "Why are you voting for a Jew?"
Leaflets that Scott considers antisemitic were also being handed out at several mosques labelling him an "ardent Zionist" who "considers Muslims as alien to the UK".
They also baited him as a "self-hating Jew" for denying that he had ever described Muslims as "alien".
