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.
