Singer who spread anti-Jewish hatred warned he faces jail

Graham Hart, 69, pleaded guilty to eight charges of spreading racial hatred on radio shows, which contained ‘extreme hatred towards Jews’.

A radio host who pleaded guilty to spreading anti-Jewish racial hatred has been warned he faces a prison sentence.

Graham Hart, 69, of Penponds, Camborne, pleaded guilty to eight counts of producing a programme in service with intent or likely to stir up racial hatred at Truro Crown Court yesterday.

The charges relate to comments made on radio shows between 2016 and 2020, which Campaign Against Antisemitism said was among the worst hatred towards Jews they had ever encountered.

It has been reported Hart had previously posted a song called ‘Hoax Train’ online, which appeared to question the Holocaust to the tune of the disco song, ‘Love Train.’

The Judge, HHJ Linford scheduled a sentencing hearing for 6th August, pending a psychiatric report and warned Hart that he “should anticipate an immediate sentence of imprisonment”.

Charges were brought against Hart following an investigation by Campaign Against Antisemitism sparked a police probe.

The CAA’s Stephen Silverman said: “The offences constitute some of the most extreme hatred towards Jews that we have ever encountered.

“It is vital that the Jewish community is protected from this man, and we hope that the sentence will also send a message to like-minded people that hate towards British Jews will not be tolerated.”
