The Anthony Browne twins

Nick Cohen - he never changes, does he?

A few years back he attacked a man called Anthony Browne:

This line of cant has been developed by Anthony Browne, an occasional contributor to this paper, and a writer for the Times and Spectator, elite journals both. "Blair's epidemics" of Aids, TB and hepatitis B are being spread by asylum-seekers, he has asserted to great acclaim. You can understand the reasons for the applause. Browne has moved the debate on. Asylum-seekers are not only scroungers and terrorists but plague carriers, like the rats that brought the Black Death.


And ended the piece with a warning about what could happen if recession hit.

Today he declares his support - not in a shy way - for another Anthony Browne.

Browne has stood up for free speech and against liberal alliances with radical Islam, and exposed the civil servants who were pretending that a rise in HIV was due to poor sex education rather than immigration from African countries where the virus is raging. A former press officer at the Department of Health staff told me that his arguments caused consternation, not least because they were true.


And he ends the piece with a warning about what could happen if recession hit.

How spooky is that?
