Jonathan Reynolds MP Gives Brilliant Response To Holocaust Denier

When Jonathan Reynolds was found himself being criticised by a Holocaust denier on Twitter, the Labour Co-operative MP gave what can only be described as an absolute masterclass in how to handle the situation.

Reynolds, who represents Stalybridge, Hyde, Mossley, Longdendale & Dukinfield, quoted a tweet in which a user claimed the Holocaust was “one big lie”.

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day. I signed the book of remembrance & told my kids why we must always call out hate, before it takes over from love

You politicians are not doing your duty to the public. The Holocaust is one big lie. Time you put pressure on the media to do their job and start asking a few questions. But politicians and journalists are either owned or brainwashed themselves.

If you needed any proof why Holocaust Memorial Day is essential #WeRemember
The user was not deterred – but instead of engaging with him, Reynolds had a brilliant response…
Proof? Your logic is coming round full circle Jonathan. Look at the chemical, physical and numeric evidence instead,
As much as I would like to converse with you Steve, I’m literally going to prioritise picking up shit with my hands from my local canal this morning

For the avoidance of any doubt, Reynolds then shared a picture of precisely how he had spent his Saturday morning…
Good to see a strong response to this. Just to confirm this was how I actually spent the morning
Holocaust Memorial Day is marked on 27 January, the day Auschwitz was liberated in 1945.

Around the world, events are held to remember those who were murdered by the Nazis, as well as in subsequent genocides.
