He went on to say Hamas “did not exist” when battle in Gaza started within the Forties – having been based in 1987 – claiming Palestine was “occupied”.

Co-host Gould mentioned Palestinian folks had been “occupied now” however “weren’t in 2005” – previous to when Hamas seized management of the Strip following the Battle of Gaza.

Hedley could be heard suggesting Whale was “attempting to assault” him, to which the presenter replied “I’m not attempting to assault you, I’m an previous man with most cancers.”
