Wally of the Week: Richard Littlejohn

Richard Littlejohn’s attack on the memory of the late Jean-Charles de Menezes is an utter disgrace

 

Richard Littlejohn has the misfortune to look like the convicted criminal Thomas McLoughlin. He also has the distinctly disagreeable characteristic of sharing this creep’s foul mouth and in attacking the memory of the electrician shot dead by firearms officers on a tube train in Stockwell in 2005, he has utterly disgraced himself.

In a commentary published in Friday’s Daily Mail, pugnacious Littlejohn stated: “[Jean-Charles de Menezes] was the wrong man, in the wrong place at the wrong time… [His death was an] unfortunate business… It shouldn’t be another cause celebre… Let’s just leave it there”.

 

Showing his complete lack of empathy, the columnist described the Menezes family’s efforts to secure justice for their massacred relative as the actions of those “egged on by the usual Left-wing troublemakers” and his death as a “mistake [that] happen[ed]”. For his complete lack of empathy, we make Richard Littlejohn our most worthy Wally of the Week: Shame on him.

  1. I have just spent time in Rio and Sao Paolo and running from the police in Brazil gets you immediately shot…. innocent or not.
    And don’t expect an apology or compensation.
    Certainly don’t expect the Brazilian government to spend millions(as we have done) to investigate the circumstances. His family know in their country, unlike ours, life has little value.
    Brazilian friends are amazed at the lengths we have gone to determine what happened on a day when London was at war.
    What happened was appalling, but there was a certain inevitability on a day when the police thought a wave of bombings was planned and a man leaps across a barrier having been told to stop.
    He was here illegally, in the wrong place; at the wrong time….sad, but true.

  2. The Home Office says his visa expired at that time and that he remained illegally in the UK until his death.

  3. Personally I don’t give a flying copulation for the opinions of this squalid, repellent little oik. I sincerely hope the bereaved family are of the same opinion……….

    1. You sound frightfully vulgar. I suppose you are some ghastly little fellow.Anyone describing himself as ‘Jack the Lad’ requires pity….doubtless bullied at his horrid school

  4. Goodness, “Wayde”, steady on ! …..”The lady doth protest too much, methinks”…….!!! Another an oik, one can but assume….?! ( YOUR opinion is most definitely not worth a f**k as far as I’m concerned…………….!)

    1. Mr Wayde, to you, boy…horrid, common fellow. Show some respect to your betters. And cease swearing:it’s a mark of the ill educated classes

      1. Swearing has been well documented, contrary to your assertion, as being a sign of intelligence! Some of the worlld’s greatest thinkers and writers have used copious amounts of profanity in order to enhance their work!

  5. Wayde, you appear to be an utter buffoon, in a sadly comical way…..!!! Rather an ill-bred example, obviously….
    Do desist from making a further fool of yourself and go away………….(i.e. copulate off…)

  6. Little John is to journalism, what a maggot is to rotting entrails.
    Both feed off the remains of misfortune and grief.
    The latter for survival and the former for notoriety and money. A complete scumbag!

  7. Richard, I have just sent two lines to your editor for the letters page which reads “All the outrage over a “presumed” No Deal. The remainers have obviously never played poker! On reflection I should have sent it to you. You could have made a good game on your page involving the cunning to get one,s own way, mentioning a few names that have been in the paper recently, It might work.lol – Pat Biglin
