An Anti-Semite In Every Crypt

Today's award for Fanciful Anti-Semite Spottery goes to Timothy Garton Ash who, anxious lest anyone anywhere spend 15 seconds of her life unmindful that 'there have always been, and are still, nasty strains of anti-semitism in British life,' adduces the claim that 'Even the humorous Private Eye portrayal of Howard as Count Dracula of Transylvania, picked up in a cartoon in this paper over the slogan "Are you drinking what we're drinking?", teeters somewhere on the edge of a historical minefield.'

Somewhere? Where, please? Would that be the edge of the notorious Anti-Semitic-Pogroms-Against-Transylvanian-Vampires minefield?
