One ought to rejoice on the day when Keith Wallis gets sent to “The Big House” but overshadowing the festivities is the news that Peter Nunn of Emerson’s Green in Bristol is to face trial. His heinous offence was to criticise the Rt Hon Stella Creasy during the tsunami of shit that engulfed Twitter over Caroline Criado-Perez.
I care not who is on the £10 note, I do not support rape or death threats made by inadequate trolls. However where is the line to be drawn? After Twitter’s far from robust response to Criado-Perez the pendulum swung against any criticism. Greasy and her coven including the dire Caitlin Moran then had special access to “zap” accounts.
I am not even anti-feminist as I enjoy reading and supporting Hadley Freeman. The current state of affairs is that with the prospect of Nunn being jailed the UK will join Burma, Cuba, Ethiopia and Uzbekistan in terms of imprisoning bloggers and tweeters. Land fit for heroes?
Criado-Perez relished the publicity her notoriety brought. Grace Dent (a poor man’s Caitlin Moran) jumped on the feminazi bandwagon. In the light of yet another innocent man being exonerated and William Roache’s victory where is Britain going?
