Euan McColm: Corbyn’s words ring hollow on anti-Semitism
An especially tricky thing about bad guys is that they don’t ever admit their flaws. A rotter will never tell you “I’m a wrong ’un, by the way”. In fact, he’s more likely to say precisely the opposite. The claims of those who don’t wear their virtue lightly are to be treated with a healthy degree of scepticism. Take men who make a point of saying “I love women,” for example. You will have met such a fellow, I’m sure. And you’ll know that he doesn’t “love” women.
