Doctor, I can't keep my mouth shut
Like, er, the NME, which committed the heinous crime of reporting the Wiley affair. “Appalling from NME. They have breeched the society of editors code of practice and will be held to account” ranted Mann. So what part of the Editor’s Code have they breached? On he went. “This maniac has stopped tweeting for now. This tweet is about a violent racist attack. There will be consequences including for Twitter allowing his putrid hatred to continue for so long”. He stopped because Twitter temporarily suspended him. And then removed Tweets that contravened its Ts and Cs. As the BBC has reported.
And then Lord John Mann did it. He blamed it on Corbyn. “[Jeremy Corbyn] a fan of yours has been on an antisemitic hatefest for 14 hours. As you have exchanged salutes with him previously, why are you not directly challenging him to stop his antisemitism [sic], rants? The possibility is he might listen to you”. He’s not a fan of Jezza, the “exchange of salutes” was Jezza saying “thank you”, and there is otherwise no relationship here.
Is John Mann on a mission, or just pursuing a personal feud? Don’t all shout at once.
