…am gobsmacked to see that Newsnight Review has that well-known anti-Semite Tom Paulin on again this evening (Friday 5 March). I’ve given up complaining to the BBC myself, and so am relying on you to pass this on to the relevant blogs!

Just in case anyone had forgotten, Robert Kilroy-Silk made some comments about Arabs that combined home truths with some unlovable and boorish generalisations. In no way did he advocate violence. Nonetheless, the BBC professed itself utterly shocked and horrified, and Kilroy-Silk’s show was taken off the air. In contrast Tom Paulin called for Jewish settlers to be shot. Shot as in dead, sans phrases … and the BBC welcomes him back.
