Following the misrepresentation of David’s intentions in the blog post “Status Quo” I am reproducing hereunder an appeal by David Friggieri.
I invite all those quoting my article ‘Status Quo’ carried on the J’accuse blog to refrain from quoting this piece out of context. What I am saying is precisely THE OPPOSITE of what I am being accused of saying. No more, no less. If you would like me to spell it out for you, here it is: it is insane for critics of the Labour party to viciously attack everything that Labour stands for and does in the vile way they do. When they do this they are savaging half the nation. My piece is a clear criticism of those who attack Labour viciously and not of Labour supporters. My appeal is an appeal for a form of national unity and decency, no less. And I felt I could write it because it goes beyond party politics.
I would expect the persons involved in misquoting this piece to have the decency to set the record straight in the name of honesty, if nothing else.
