There is something quite poetic about a conspiracist falling victim to a conspiracy. In this case, several far-Right commentators lined up to express their sorrow over the passing of historian and Holocaust-denier David Irving. “David Irving, possibly the bravest British historian ever, has died, aged 85,” tweeted former BNP leader Nick Griffin. “After years of persecution by the Holocaust industry, he was asked ‘Mr Irving, are you anti-Semitic?’ His instant reply: ‘Not yet’.” The eulogies, however, were premature. According to Irving’s X account, he’s not dead but is “currently facing health challenges”. No doubt Mr Irving would be pleased with all the historical revisionism going on with his death.
