Mr Katz

I have now read your highly inaccurate account of a speech which I
delivered at Johannesburg. Why did you not challenge me at the time if
as you claim I used the n-word to describe the country’s black
population? Your allegation is ludicrous. I have asked others who were
present and all say that you are lying. I have never used the n-word in
my life. To have used it, when I was a guest of South Africa, would have
been tasteless beyond words. My last two personal assistants have been
(a) a Sri Lankan (b) a Punjabi. I think you are a very sick puppy, my
friend.

David Irving
