Look Mehdi, US Cartoon Mocks 9/11 And No One Gets Shot

“I’m fed up with the hypocrisy of the free speech fundamentalists,” says Mehdi Hasan as he finally gives his two cents on the Paris terror attack. He asks: “Has your publication, for example, run cartoons mocking the Holocaust? No? How about caricatures of the 9/11 victims falling from the twin towers? I didn’t think so (and I am glad it hasn’t).”

And I think in one moment we learned more about Labour’s attitude to the NHS than we’ve learned perhaps for five years. They just see it as a political weapon and frankly I think that is disgraceful.”

Ed has to do better than “I can’t recall”…

WATCH: Miliband on “Weaponising the NHS”

Marr asked Ed Miliband half-a-dozen times did he use the word “weaponise” to discuss cynically politicising the NHS issue as a tool of attack. Ed was even given the chance to disown the “weaponise” word. He didn’t…
