MacKenzie could face police quiz over Corbyn knife ‘joke’

Thursday 4th May 2017

SUSPENDED columnist and former editor of the Sun newspaper Kelvin MacKenzie could be reported to the police for inciting hatred and violence towards Jeremy Corbyn, Labour sources said yesterday.

The hack “joked” about the idea of the Labour leader being “knifed to death” in an interview with the New York Times.

He then contacted writer Katrin Bennhold in an attempt to change the quote and referred to the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox last June as the reason for his sudden change of mind.

Mr MacKenzie was quoted as having said: “I think the fake news headline that would give this country the most joy would be: ‘Jeremy Corbyn knifed to death by an asylum-seeker’.”

Ms Bennhold wrote: “The next morning, I got a text message from Mr MacKenzie: ‘Hi Katrin, Can you change that perfect headline from ‘Jeremy Corbyn knifed to death by asylum-seeker’ to ‘Jeremy Corbyn defrauded by asylum-seeker.’ In the light of Jo Cox murder mine is in tol [sic] poor taste.”

The Sun suspended Mr MacKenzie — who was in charge when the Sun published front-page lies about the 96 Liverpool fans killed at Hillsborough — for comparing mixed-race Everton footballer Ross Barkley with a gorilla last month.

He is also known for criticising Channel 4 for delegating the job of reporting the Nice truck attack last year to Muslim newsreader Fatima Manji, who wears a headscarf.

A Labour source confirmed to the Star that Mr MacKenzie could be reported to the police.

They said: “This sort of disgusting language should not be tolerated by anyone in the media, politics or any walk of life.

“We saw last year how overheated language in politics led to the murder of Jo Cox.”

I suspect that police may not treat MacKenzie as harshly as they might theat some hypothetical Muslim who hypothetically made some sick joke about knifing, eg, Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May to death.

    FORMER Sun editor Kelvin MacKenzie will not return to the paper after being suspended for making a stream of hateful and racist comments in his regular column.

    The tabloid’s publisher News UK is in talks about Mr MacKenzie’s departure and will not be employed “much longer,” with a decision expected this week, according to the Financial Times on Monday.

    A source close to the talks told the Guardian yesterday however that Mr Mackenzie will not return to work for the paper.

    In a column for the Sun last month, he compared Everton and England footballer Ross Barkley, who is mixed-race, to a gorilla, which prompted public outrage and led to his suspension.

    Mr MacKenzie, who edited of the right-wing rag between 1981 and 1994, has been embroiled in numerous scandals including printing lies about Liverpool fans following the Hillsborough tragedy.

    His suspension is believed to be a tactical move to better the chances of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp — which owns News UK — in its bid to take over Sky.

    The Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom’s Tim Gopsill described the suspension as “a very important moment,” as Mr McKenzie has personified the newspaper for 30 years.

    He said: “As a single person he has done more damage politically than anyone. He is the last person Murdoch would want to sack.

    “It’s an embarrassment — it shows how important it is for Murdoch to get hold of Sky.

    “People are a liability in his quest. He’s prepared to do anything to get it.”
