BBC's Palestine hoaxer Paul Martin tries to cover his online tracks

Paul Martin is a BBC-linked journalist who I exposed as a fraud last month, in a major investigative feature. Although a freelancer, Martin has been described by Newsnight as “our correspondent” at least once. The problem is that Martin has a bad habit of using false identities and making up stories, as my article showed. Since this story got out, Martin (whose real name seems to be Paul Cainer) has been trying to cover his tracks. 

As Israel haemorrhages British political support, its supporters watch impotently

His comments confirm other indications of increased mainstream support for Palestine in the political mainstream, as I showed in a feature for EI last month.
