He has claimed that EU packaging and hygiene regulations have cost his business hundreds of thousands of pounds annually, which is the principal reason he is in favor of Brexit.Forman is a climate change denier.His son, Oliver (Ollie) Anisfeld is the CEO of Turning Point UK, the British branch of Turning Point USA, a controversial, right-wing, pro-Trump organisation.Together with his wife, Rene Anisfeld, Forman is a patron of the charitable organisation One Family UK, which aids victims of terror attacks in Israel.
