Guardian deputy-editor deepens hole over Lord Ahmed

Then there is this to add to the posting on Lord Ahmed. It's also from the engage website, but shows Guardian Deputy-Editor Michael White using the Livingstone Formulation, as noted in the heading to the article.

Read and try not to throw up.

By the editor: for those short of patience here is the main part of the story:

Daniel Finkelstein is the Executive Editor and a leader writer of the Times. He tweeted: “Surprised to find our Lord Ahmed Jews story not in BBC radio news summaries…”

Michael White, Assistant Editor at the Guardian replied: “@Dannythefink I agree it’s a stinker and typical of double standards. Pity about the illegal settlements though. Best wishes”

The handwriting is on the wall. Pretty soon it will be restrictive laws, forcing the people into Ghettos and finally either forced expulsion from the nation or a repeat of the Holocaust.

Britain will do ANYTHING to appease their Muslim masters.

Actually, Katie, fortunately not, as the repeated reporting (today, March 15) from The Times of London shows. It wades in again, with further reports from numerous Labour MPs, damning Ahmed and demanding his expulsion from the Party. Further the Times spells out what he said on that Pakistani tv station, and some Muslims are attacking him too.

It has another editorial as well, hammering him even harder than yesterday. Given The Guardian's falling sales, the writers are beginning to talk just to themselves and a declining coterie of readers. They do manage a further website comment, but it's merely a very slightly amended article from yesterday.

Nice that at least some Labour Party MPs can exhibit a bit of sense, but what about the hard core cases like Corbin?
As regards the Guardian's long term prospects of remaining in businss, Can we live to hope and breath that the BBC is going to catch what it richly deserves over the Masharawi story:

Who says the settlements are illegal? Oh, well, of course. And the Guardian's sales are falling? Oh, happy day.
