Why Won't The Guardian Barf Up Bapthrope?

As a public service notice about an antisemitic commenter "William Bapthorpe" who was supposed to be banned but has apparently been allowed back.


To give some background - last month Bapthorpe stated that West Bank Jews should be slaughtered down to the last man, woman and child. It took over two weeks for Bapthorpe to be banned for making this comment and it was only after a campaign led by CiF Watch and a police investigation into this that Bapthorpe was finally banned.

It now emerges that he has been posting under a new moniker and he claims, based on his emails with the Guardian, that he was allowed to return as William Bapthorpe if he wanted to.

This is nothing short of outrageous.

If you feel outraged about this, write to Matt Seaton at and give him a piece of your mind.
