Home Secretary Sajid Javid has opened himself to libel action by a tweet – to a now-deactivated account – clearly implying that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn teaches or misleads people to deny the Holocaust.
Corbyn has, of course, never said or done anything to lead anyone to deny the holocaust and in late 2016 visited the Theresienstadt Holocaust memorial to quietly pay his respects to those murdered there.
Javid responded to a tweet about Margaret Hodge with this comment:
An array of Twitter users called on him to retract the libel, including Labour front-bencher Clive Lewis:
Javid’s tweet remains undeleted and he does not appear to have apologised.
Wouldn’t it be great to see whether a Javid ‘Please retweet’ apology would go even more viral than the Tories’ most ‘successful’ tweet of the year so far – Ben Bradley’s humiliating take-back after defaming Corbyn in relation to Czechoslovakia?
