Nick Lowles of Hope not Hate has been accused of lying by Gilad Atzmon in a thoroughly nasty little article, ‘Hope not Hate? Truth not lies more likely’. Atzmon, in a later post, accused Lowles of ‘falsifying documents’ relating to correspondence with the Dean of Bradford. The Dean has now clarified his position, and exonerated Nick Lowles from these charges – his full statement is given here. Although the Dean’s statement on Atzmon’s views will probably strike most readers as over cautious, he has at least stepped in to defend Lowles from unfounded smears.
