A denial and clarification from Mr Sam Wilson MP

I have been in correspondence with Mr Sam Wilson MP and I wish to put on record what he has said in response to my private email to him regarding the dreadful and most offensive words used in the headline of the report of a statement he issued to the “Belfast Telegraph” of August 19th.

The report clearly implied that the words they used in the headline were the words Mr Wilson employed.

I am very glad to receive the following statement from Mr Wilson.

“I assure you I did not use those words I simply quoted what Biden was reported to have said in the daily express or mail can’t remember which one I saw it in and it was those words I pointed out to the BT. I assure you it is not language which I use or have ever done so.”

Having known Mr Wilson for nigh on half a century, it grieved me to see the report and I am pleased with this clarification.

Sincerely in Christ,

Ivan Foster
