Wally of the Week: David Irving

Section:

David Irving’s legal action against the BBC over a programme presented by Jeremy Clarkson represents yet another low for this disgraced historian

 

On Sunday The Telegraph’s Richard Eden reported that the Holocaust denier David Irving is to instigate legal proceedings against the BBC over a programme about the Second World War Navy Arctic convoys presented by Jeremy Clarkson.

Jeremy Clarkson need not feel glum about having been criticised by Holocaust denier David Irving

Commenting, Irving stated:

 

“At least half of Clarkson’s script and story is anonymously quarried from my book… I am sending to the BBC’s legal department on Monday a Letter before Action, including a full schedule of 14 passages which I claim were lifted from or based on my book”.

 

“It is shameful, but, alas, characteristic, the way the BBC overpays its ‘stars’ and gives neither cash nor credit to those who toiled at the coalface, so to speak, 50 years ago. There are limits to how far fair usage can go”.

 

David Irving is banned from entering Austria, Canada, Germany and Italy. It’s a great shame he can’t be banned from Britain also. This hateful individual who will stop at nothing to keep himself in the public eye is deservedly our most worthy Wally of the Week.

    1. David Irving denies the Holocaust, so what? He has probably never tortured ducks or eaten Foie Gras. The British Broadcasting Corporation will settle out of court. He is obviously a mensch.

    2. Hollywood mogul Steven Spielberg founded the Survivor of the Shoah Visual History Foundation in 1994. The Foundation conducted 52000 interviews in 56 countries in 32 languages over 5 years. The overall aim of Holocaust deniers is to reduce public sympathy to Jews, thus undermining the legitimacy of the state of Israel which the Holocaust deniers believe was created as compensation for Jews suffering during the Holocaust.
      Holocaust denial and distortions are motivated by agendas that are neither about the Holocaust or about understanding an evidence based well documented Historical event. David Irving can make as much noise as he wants, it falls on deaf ears. I guess, you can call him a wally. Jeremy Clarkson has nothing to answer for.

      You are after the man and not the ball. That's foul play and argumentum ad hominem, I'd say…
