Did Abrahams say this?

Text settings

Just when you thought that the David Abrahams’s story could not become any more bizzare, along comes this. The Jewish Chronicle has an explosive interview with Abrahams this morning in which he warns that if “the government starts hammering” him, then the whole affair “might take one or two dirty turns.” He also claims that the “real reason I wanted to remain anonymous was that I didn’t want Jewish money and the Labour Party being put together because this is what I feared would happen. People would say there’s a Jewish conspiracy.” But Abrahams is denying that he ever gave the Jewish Chronicle an interview. David Rowan, the editor of The Jewish Chronicle, robustly defended his paper’s story on the Today Programme this morning and challenged Abrahams to take the paper to court.
