Richard Littlejohn thinks that the sex workers who were murdered in Ipswich were merely vermin.
His Daily Mail piece is sick-making. That death for sex workers is the same as death for Hollywood stunt doubles – an occupational hazard. That they were never going to find a cure for cancer – on which basis we should probably give up on the African agrarians he mentions in the next breath – I mean, they probably can’t even read.
That the sex workers’ friends and families failed – but that society is blameless. That they were on the street because they were too disgusting to be accepted into a brothel.
Visceral moral disgust. It’s a funny old thing. I think it’s a dangerous thing.
