Wasn’t it a bit weird to see Ken slithering sideways over his Hitler remarks on the Victoria Derbyshire show this morning.
“The Zionists had to work with Hitler” is his latest plea - “it wasn’t their fault”.
People keep bounding up to him in the street to encourage him, he attests. They say: “I’m Jewish and I know you’re right! Don’t let the bastards grind you down”. In fact, he's sure that the whole enquiry into his conduct and reinstatement is has stalled because everyone knows he’s right.
However deep his hole doth grow (must be near Australia by now) he still can’t slither out of the context in which he made the remark. Defending Naz Shah, if you remember. Now that she’s been reinstated it appears that she’s still under investigation by the CPS. (Not that anything will come of it) but a number of other incriminating remarks have surfaced, which she would find difficult to defend, although her ‘deep and sincere’ apology might cover them.
To her credit Victoria Derbyshire appeared suitably cynical throughout, and she did a mean, 'BBC thing' to poor old Ken at the end of his appearance. She summed by announcing the very thing he’d just spent the last ten minutes trying to slither out of, i.e., that Ken still claims that Hitler supported the Zionists. Or was it the other way round? Anyway, I don’t imagine he’ll be very pleased with that.
You’d have to have a heart of stone……. etc etc.
