No. Harassment requires proof of a “course of conduct”, defined in s7(3) Protection From Harassment Act 1997 as “conduct on at least two occasions”.

A single recording, whether politically motivated or not, does not establish a course of conduct.

If any other journalists want to make up criminal offences and pass them off as real things, I’m here all day.
Fun fact: What *might* constitute a criminal offence of harassment, however, is an online campaign by a prominent newspaper columnist aiming to expose and incite hostility towards a private couple who called the police to report a potential incident of domestic violence.
Like this, for instance. This is what I as a prosecutor might consider pretty decent evidence of inciting an offence of harassment.
