The famous Spectator columnist Taki has recently revealed that early on he tried to expose Jeffrey Epstein but his column was spiked.
The only column of mine in 42 years that was spiked long ago was about Epstein. I called him a raging pedophile and an assistant editor got scared and killed it. I have never laid eyes on the ghastly Epstein. (Taki’s Magazine)
Was Taki’s column spiked sometime between 1999-2005 when Boris Johnson, the present Prime Minister of Britain was the editor of the Spectator?
That would seem to be probable because before 1999 Epstein was not yet totally out of control and after 2005 Epstein was already under police investigation and therefore Spectator probably would not then have spiked the article.
At the time Hollinger group also included the Jerusalem Post.
On the board of the Hollinger group sat many extreme Zionists, including Les Wexner, the mentor of Jeffrey Epstein.
Was it Conrad Black who ordered Boris Johnson to spike Taki’s column? Or was it the board that was in the process of firing Black?
