Worthy of ridicule

On 23 November 2016, in an interview with RT, Craig Murray described the HJS as "a creature of the CIA" and deemed it worthy of ridicule:

"Any organisation which embraces Jim Murphy, Nadine Dorries, Roger Scruton and Patrick Minford is going to have some fruitcake right wing opinions and be more worthy of ridicule than political debate.[3] So I really couldn’t maintain a straight face when discussing the Henry Jackson Society on Russia Today."[4]
