A stunning intervention into the realm of geopolitics from the Green Party, whose conspiracy theorist foreign affairs spokesman has told the BBC that ISIS are funded by the Rothschilds. Loony ex-Labour MP Tony Clarke told 5Live:
“There are British oil companies such as Genel Energy, run by Nathaniel Rothschild, one of George Osborne’s friends, who are making money, who are buying oil from ISIS, who are putting money into the pot, allowing ISIS therefore to fuel their evil across the world.”
That’s right, apparently it was “the Jews” all along.
City AM report that the Green Party have been forced to retract their official spokesman’s statement and apologise:
“The Green Party and Tony Clarke apologise to Genel Energy for this false statement, which they have withdrawn and have undertaken not to repeat. The Green Party and Tony Clarke wish to publicly retract this statement and accept it to be untrue and without foundation. Genel Energy… is not, and never has been, a purchaser of oil from anyone.”
The BBC have also had to edit the programme on iPlayer to get rid of his defamatory comments. If the Greens do the decent thing and boot Clarke out, he can always rejoin Labour…
