The solitary lone exception to the press blackout this Sunday seems to be a short diary column piece by Rod Liddle for The Sunday Times, entitled 'They've made a martyr out of this Holocaust denier'.
Liddle, for those of you who don't know the world of the British media intimately, is a moderately unpleasant former producer of Radio 4's Today breakfast news show and probably more famous for his marital infidelity than his sneering right-wing views. But even Liddle can't bring himself to do more than conclude his article with the line 'What a singularly unpleasant man Irving is, in almost every regard, despite his obvious erudition. A snob and a pathological racist who will now revel in his role as martyr to the freedom of speech'.
But this isn't the most notable thing about the article. Liddle evidently gave Irving a tinkle on the dog and bone, extracting the following quote from him:
"It did occur to me how many of the leading Nazis were either Austrian by birth,That should have a few deniers choking into their cornflakes this breakfast-time.
or educated in Austria. Really, if they're so touchy about the whole thing, they
shouldn't have done it in the first place."
