Coren still poles apart
He's done it again. Last week, The Diary reported on how Giles Coren, The Times' restaurant critic and columnist, had annoyed Poles by accusing them of remaining in denial about their responsibility for the Holocaust.
In his latest column last Saturday, an unrepentant Coren responded to a critical letter from Polish ambassador Barbara Tuge-Erecinska by raising the Kielce pogrom of 1946, in which Polish Jews returning home after liberation from the camps were killed by Poles. That should keep the postman busy for another week.
