180515 mail headline change

Apparently, yesterday’s Daily Mail headline (see above) wasn’t good enough and had to be modified, now reading as follows:

Anti-Semitic songwriter who claims the Holocaust is ‘meaningless’ and Auschwitz is a ‘theme park for fools’ deliberately targeted Jews because of their faith, court hears

I think on the whole press coverage was pretty fair: selective in parts, for sure, but Jenni Frazer actually manages to call me a performer – a giant step forward. Hurrah!
