John Rentoul Apologises to Jon Trickett Over “Kill the Bill” Tweet

John Rentoul has been forced to apologise to Labour MP Jon Trickett for accusing him of “condoning violence against police officers” in a now-deleted tweet. On May 7th Rentoul tweeted that Trickett had used the Kill the Bill” slogan which implied “…support for murdering police officers”.
