John Whitaker “Jack” Straw (born 3 August 1946) is a Jewish politician who has been a member of the Labour Party and of Parliament (MP) for Blackburn since 1979. Straw’s maternal grandmother was Jewish from a family based in Eastern European. Straw released Jamie Bulger killer John Venables early with a new identity. He was later caught with child porn including a video of an 8 year old girl being violently raped. Nevertheless Straw was in favour of providing Venables with another new identity and letting a paedophile in the making free on British streets.
