One man is refusing to give up on the Jeremy Bowen rumour

by in news

This week we debunked the claim on Twitter that the BBC's Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen had been withdrawn from Gaza for apparently defending Hamas.

The real reason was much more mundane; he is in fact just on holiday.

"Claims that Jeremy Bowen has been removed from Gaza under Israeli pressure are nonsense," a BBC spokesperson told i100.

"After reporting from Syria, Iraq, Israel and Gaza he is on holiday but will be returning to the Middle East very soon.”

But one man in particular, an MP no less, is refusing to give up on other interpretation of the story.
