Ruth Gledhill of the Times:
The contemptible Holocaust-denier Bishop Richard Williamson, who believes there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz but despite this had his excommunication lifted by Pope Benedict XVI, has boarded a British Airways flight at Buenos Aires and is on his way to England. This pic shows him threatening to punch the Reuters reporter who saw him. He raised his fist then shoved him. And in case he tries to deny that too, it was caught on TV. See my story on it here.
AP’s Jeanette Neumann reports: ‘A local television station showed Richard Williamson raising his fist toward a reporter, then shoving him into a pole with his shoulder as he hurried through Buenos Aires’ Ezeiza international airport to catch a flight for London.’
Argentina had given him ten days to leave so he decided to jump before he was pushed. More on this breaking story soon.
Does Benedict XVI still believe he was right to lift the excommunication.
