The William Hickey column writes:-


DESPITE being labelled a liar and a racist, David Irving has no shame about showing his face. The portly charlatan caused a stir when he wafted in like a bad smell to a soiree held by society networker Carole Stone in London on Monday night. Guests including Liberal big wig Des Wilson and chef Anton Mosimann were among those who raised an eyebrow. Carole says: "Yes, David Irving was there, no, I don't know him, and yes, some people were taken aback. My friend, Lady Michele Renouf, asked if she could bring him.

Nobody was paying for Mr Irving. His witnesses testified without payment, from conviction. [Help!]
