This story of Penguin publishing an antisemitic author while actively hiding his antisemitism is appalling & @JeremyDuns deserves huge credit. But there is one more detail to add: the support for Pedro Banos from Chris Williamson & others on the UK left /1…
Back in December Williamson was gripped by the idea there was a government-funded conspiracy to undermine democracy via the Integrity Initiative. He asked loads of questions in Parliament about it/2
As well as believing Integrity Initiative was smearing Jeremy Corbyn on behalf of the government, Williamson also claimed they campaigned to stop Pedro Banos being appointed Spain's Director of Homeland Security. Here he is asking a question in Parliament about Banos /3
Here is Williamson writing to the Spanish Prime Minister in defence of Banos /4…
And here he is writing about it in the Morning Star /5…
Williamson even went to the Integrity Initiative office to confront them, a stunt excitedly written up by The Canary. "I want to ask some questions about Pedro Banos", he cried as he knocked on the door /6…
Who else supported Banos on the British left? Why, here is Aaron Bastani doing just that /7…
Maybe Williamson and Bastani didn't know that Banos believes the Rothschilds run the world. Maybe they knew but didn't think it mattered. Who knows. But it's odd, isn't it, how often anti-racists of the British left inadvertently find themselves defending antisemites? /End
