AN OLDIE BUT NOT A GOODIE
ONE Israel-supporting pensioner in Yorkshire was surprised to receive an appeal for Medical Aid for Palestinians through the post.
How had his contact details been obtained, he asked the charity? They had been sold on by the
magazine, to which he had, until that point, subscribed.
The magazine’s former editor Richard Ingrams once said he refused to read letters if he thought the writer had “a Jewish name”.
Appealing to them for donations, though, is fine.
