Ipswich Murders: "No Great Loss" says Littlejohn
Catherine Redfern // 19 January 2008
I didn’t think it was possible that the Daily Mail’s Richard Littlejohn could become more hateful than he already is, but apparently he can.
Writing about the five murdered women who worked as prostitutes, he says:
It might not be fashionable, or even acceptable in some quarters, to say so, but in their chosen field of “work”, death by strangulation is an occupational hazard. That doesn’t make it justifiable homicide, but in the scheme of things the deaths of these five women is no great loss. They weren’t going to discover a cure for cancer or embark on missionary work in Darfur. The only kind of missionary position they undertook was in the back seat of a car.
