B-BBC readers may recall a small furore over my tweet a few months ago that the Hate Flotilla should be stopped in it’s tracks and “no messing this time”. Gosh but the BBC were so VERY keen to hear what I meant by that with my political opponents claiming that this was “incendiary” and indeed verging on “bigoted” and “hate speech”. I rather got the impression that the dear old BBC seemed to relish this dross, almost as if blackening my name was a good day out for them, perish the thought.
Anyhoooo…I’m waiting for the BBC to move on the news that the head of Amnesty’s Finnish branch, Frank Johansson, has told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday that he stands by his statement that Israel is a “scum state.”
“Scum State”? Oh dear – sounds a bit…incendiary to me, maybe even a tad bigoted and possibly “hate speech”. Can’t wait for those eager beavers at the BBCto get an Amnesty spokesman tomorrow morning on to ask him to condemn Johansson.
