Letter to The Editor - High time that the Australian Government terminated any restrictions on Irving's entry
To The Age A key player in the exposure of the fraud of the fake Hitler diaries ("Editor who took the rap for fake Hitler diaries", 7/1) was David Irving. It is a pity that this is not mentioned in the New York Times obituary you have republished. Its unworthy omission of reference to his dramatic intervention at a German press conference is no doubt a result of the current disgraceful taboo on this distinguished historian's writings. Which reminds us that it is high time that the Australian Government terminated any restrictions on Irving's entry into Australia. Those restrictions, some of which were enacted precisely to keep him out, were never justified. The fact that a UK High Court decision later found some errors in some of his works does not change that reality.
