Modern British Jewry

In an economic sense, British Jews prospered during the 1980s; they were, in truth, little affected by the economic problems which beset the manufacturing industry during Mrs Thatcher's premiership. But the economic recession of the 1990s, in which the previously secure southeast of England and the professional classes experienced unemployment and economic insecurity, seems to have had a proportionately greater impact upon Anglo–Jewry than on any other ethnic minority. Jewish business people and professionals suffered bankruptcy and redundancy on a hitherto-unknown scale, an experience which may account in part for the move of Jewish voters back to Labour — or at least away from the Conservatives — in the May 1997 general election. Jewish charities and welfare organizations, themselves now short of funds, reported increasing poverty and hardship.
