Chris Williamson schools timid BBC interviewer on the meaning of genocide

Talking straight: Chris Williamson.

Congratulations to former Labour MP Chris Williamson for putting a BBC interviewer straight about what’s going on in Gaza in no uncertain terms.

Speaking after fellow Workers’ Party politician George Galloway won the Rochdale by-election, Chris – who is a personal friend of This Site – expressed his horror that the Labour Party was “facilitating” and “supporting genocide” by Israel against the civilian population of Gaza.

The interviewer – possibly at the behest of some unseen producer’s voice in his earpiece – moved to silence this shocking revelation of the facts, and… it did not go well for him:

Good for you Chris. You are absolutely right.

Nobody who supports genocide deserves any consideration from right-minded, decent people. And that includes the leaders and MPs of the Labour Party.

    that is pathetic from the interviewer to ask Chris to not mention genocide as it might offend
