MEP of the Month: Jim Nicholson (ECR UK)

A Northern Irish politician renowned as an expert on Agricultural policy is maybe not who you would think of as a champion of Israel, but then Jim Nicholson MEP is not your ordinary politician.

He has been a member of the British Parliament during the height of the IRA’s terror attacks in Northern Ireland, and was targeted for assassination many times, even having his car sprayed with bullets. Remarkably he survived and went on to become Northern Ireland’s longest serving MEP.

He has been to Israel and marveled at its hi-tech approach to agriculture, advocating that the EU takes a leaf out of the State’s book. He also defends Israel in the chamber and outside of it too and this week he took the time to come to our exhibition and listen to the artist, Mr Bob.

Jim, the whole team at EIPA thanks you and wishes you continued success. Mazal Tov!
