Rachel Ri­ley,

Daily Mail - - News -

famed for her maths-whizz brain and short skirts on chan­nel 4’s count­down, is un­der at­tack for con­demn­ing, in a pod­cast she made for the broad­caster, labour’s anti-Semitism. Karl hansen, a labour shadow min­is­ter’s aide, railed: ‘Rachel is a celebrity with 604k [Twit­ter] fol­low­ers who smears her po­lit­i­cal op­po­nents as an­tiSemites and boosts troll ac­counts that are no­to­ri­ous for tar­geted cam­paigns of harass­ment. She isn’t stand­ing up to bul­ly­ing, she is a bully.’ Doughty Rachel, 33, who is Jew­ish, is not the kind of woman to be put off by such an ill-in­formed bruiser, who, in­ci­den­tally, last year de­scribed is­rael as an apartheid state.
