"Mild Fascist"

OVER FIFTY YEARS AGO, on May 1, 1959 the Daily Mail reporter Clifford Luton quoted David Irving, then a student at London University, as saying, "You can call me a mild fascist if you like."

Mr Irving never said it. It is nonsense. The Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Calgary Jewish Community Council of Alberta, Canada, and other malevolent organisations around the world pasted the clipping into their "David Irving" dossiers, however, and they trot it out again and again (with the actual date concealed of course). Luton, later a BBC reporter, was disgraced in a paedophile scandal and vanished from view.

A dossier on this perennial smear is currently being compiled.
