Richard Littlejohn : An Apology (for a man)

He's at it again. In his latest column of hate, he refers to Cameron being in a mud hut in Rwanda. And we thought Bernard Manning was dead. No word on Jim Davidson yet. This ties in with yesterday's posting.

If anyone was in any doubt over his views on such matters, I would direct them to his oft-quoted comments in 1984 regarding the genocide in Rwanda, by black Hutus against black Tutsis in Rwanda in 1994 – he wrote,
"Does anyone really give a monkey's about what happens in Rwanda? If the Mbongo tribe wants to wipe out the Mbingo tribe then as far as I am concerned that is entirely a matter for them."

Surprisingly, when last I looked at the site, no comments had been made. Is this the case of Mail readers waking up to the crass nature of RL's views? Or maybe the lawyers have censored some of the more crazed supporters.

I watched the film 10 Rillington Place last night. I remember being quite frightened when I first encountered it. It is based on the book by Ludovic Kennedy, who campaigned for the pardon for the hanged Timothy Evans. A potent argument against the reintroduction of the death penalty.
