"Simong Henig"

Thus has the Anne Frank Trust taken to describing one of its Patrons in the nine days since I last looked.

An appalling choice of insult, especially for an organisation with such roots and aims. But still, an accurate indication of what absolutely everyone now thinks of him.

Again I say that the impact of his treatment of the Durham Teaching Assistants on children with disabilities and on children from ethnic minorities makes Simon Henig morally unfit to be a Patron of a charity dedicated to education about the Holocaust and about the issues that it presents.

There is also the question of his CBE.

And, once certain matters have resolved themselves, of his Labour Party membership, which brings that party into disrepute.

It did so very strikingly at the Durham Miners' Gala, in the presence of the Leader of the Labour Party.
