Matthew Steeples highlights an example of the kind of abuse Gina Miller has had to suffer for simply bringing a legal challenge that was most definitely necessary
Financier and philanthropist Gina Miller – a hero of our times for challenging Theresa May’s attempt to invoke Article 50 without a parliamentary vote – has suffered abuse from all kinds of lunatics. She’s been called a “despot” and a “bitch”, people have urged others to rape and murder her and one troll suggested “cancer’s too good for her”. Even the Mail Online – and they’re no fans of hers – stated that this is nothing but “vile”.
An example of an especially nasty rabid ranter is a man named Rupert James. Hailing from Cheshire and running some kind of solar panel business in Canada also (which seems a little curious for someone so anti the environmentalist movement), this angry ageing bore published a series of posts about Gina Miller on Facebook this week.
“Meddling bloody publicity seeking ‘Little Miller’ … Victory for Democracy … No its [sic] undermined the Democratic process!!!”
“Bloody self promoting ‘Minx’ …. !!” (accompanying article titled “Traitor”)
“Stupid ‘Bint’ … !!!”
James, who has also targeted me in recent days and predictably despite bullying humans likes to be photographed with animals, should be reminded of one thing: Civilised people don’t lower themselves to this level. Whether you like or loathe someone’s views, if you can’t express your own rationally in response, you belong in the nut house.
Rupert James added a lot to this site and you’ve turned on him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shame on you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He’s anything but a racist!!!!!!!! I saw his posts on Facebook and one rightly pointed out that murderers in Africa are “bloody black savages”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He tells it like it is.
Another bloody bigot
I blocked Rupert James on Facebook for another reason. He spews his commentary out in the most boring fashion. I think he’s actually just a dull, lonely old man. He needs to be pitied.
That poor creature. It looks terrified. What a vile bigot.
Nothing wrong with right sort of bigotry
I am an elderly lady and I enjoy reading this paper but what I did not enjoy were the comments left by Rupert James. He was a very rude man and I was upset by some of the things he said here. I am so pleased he has gone now.
I challenge you. I don’t believe you exist.
No one is called Ethel.
He should get a room with Aurelia Bonito I hear. NOW.
What a turd of a man.
