Recently Shalom Lappin and I were interviewed by Ha’aretz about the Euston Manifesto. The published article completely confused and misrepresented our views, though I doubt this was out of malice; the reporter hadn’t brought his recorder so he took notes of our conversation in Hebrew and drank beers as he did so. I haven’t mentioned this before either here or on the EM site because I didn’t want to draw attention to the piece, but it has been cited by at least one mischievous Website so I wanted to put the inaccuracy of the article on on the record.

Shalom has however been interviewed more recently on camera by a Canadian current affairs programme. I have only been able to watch part of this, but what I saw I thought was excellent. (And there’s something surreal about seeing a rostrum camera shot of your own mobile phone number going out on Canadian TV.)
