"I decided to have one last go at trying to make some sort of a difference – I’m so desperately unhappy with what Israel has become,” says lawyer John de Frece, who has just been elected chairman of Meretz in Ramat Gan, where he lives.

He began his political activity in Liverpool, where he was born, and continued in Israel, where he came to live in 1975. Always on the far left of the political spectrum, he first became active in the Hashomer Hatza’ir youth movement as a teenager.
