Some genuine anti-semitic abuse at last?
Ian McCartney, Chairman of the Labour Party, comes across (personal grooming aside) as Rab C Nesbitt's less cultured brother.
He's where he is, I suspect, as a sop to Old Labour stalwarts: he doesn't get a whole lot of airtime, as a rule.
Oliver Letwin is Gordon Brown's shadow as Chancellor of the Exchequer - chief Tory spokesman on finance in the House of Commons. Reminiscent of a superior sort of estate agent. He is also a Jew - or is, at any rate, of partly Jewish antecedence .
In a speech, McCartney characterised Letwin thus:
No Oliver Twist, this man, more of a Fagin.
Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear. as Alan B'stard would have put it.
