Maureen Lipman hits out at Oldie magazine

March 6, 2014

Maureen Lipman has reiterated her anger at The Oldie magazine and its editor Richard Ingrams, after discovering its April issue featured a news story criticising Israel’s treatment of Eritrean and Sudanese immigrants.

Ms Lipman cut her ties with the magazine last week, saying she could no longer tolerate its “antisemitic, anti-Jewish, anti-Israel material”.

She has now described Mr Ingrams’s coverage of the country as the result of a “terrible vendetta”.
She added: “He is never going to stop. If he can find a way to vilify Israel, he will.”
