From Littlejohn in yesterdays Mail:-

Bring on the black armbands

The murder of three prostitutes in Bradford not only conjours up memories of the Yorkshire Ripper, but also the hysteria surrounding the killing of five 'sex workers' in Ipswich four years ago.

 

All these women lived wretched lives, selling sex on the streets to feed their drug and alcohol addictions.

 

But their murders are being reported in reverential tones, designed to make us all feel guilty.

 

I'm surprised Jon Snow, on channel 4 news, wasn't wearing a black tie and armband. He delivered the news like a vicar at a child's funeral.

 

They are described not as prostitutes, but as 'women who worked as prostitutes'.

 

Channel 4 news wouldn't dream of calling Harriet Harman 'a woman who works as a politician'.

 

When did you ever hear a nurse described as 'a woman who works as a nurse'?

Precisely.

 

Even the legalisation of brothels, which I support, wouldn't have stopped these women falling into the abyss. I resent the widespread implication that their murders are somehow society's fault.

 

What makes these killings newsworthy is the sordid, salacious, sexual angle. Dressing it up in social angst is simply a way of mitigating prurience.

 

For the record, 192 women were murdered in Britain last year. Very few of these killings led the national news bulletins.

 

Then again, they weren't ' women who worked as prostitutes'.

Surely Bradford gets the other blokes total?

 

It may be as I am mentally retarded, but I don't understand?

 

Unless the Bradford killer had also killed the guy who killed the Ipswich prostitutes, then he'd have earnt the additional kills.

Well Richard Littlejohn must be mightily thick then.

 

Harriet Harman had the choice of being a politician, earlier in her career/life. She has become known as a politician. The women who became prostitutes almost certainly did it as the very last resort to keep body and soul together. Yes, maybe to feed a drug and alcohol habit. But perhaps also to give them the ability to look after dependants.

 

I don't give a monkey's whether the news was read out in reverential tones or not. Any death is sad, whether it be to a prostitute or to the Queen. I wonder where those women would have been if they'd have had her life chances, and how much of a reverential tone would be used then..?

 

And as StKip says, breathe... this is TMS.

I just posted the original article as a response to the OP`s question as to how the victims were referred to:-

" They are described not as prostitutes, but as 'women who worked as prostitutes'.

 

Channel 4 news wouldn't dream of calling Harriet Harman 'a woman who works as a politician'.

 

When did you ever hear a nurse described as 'a woman who works as a nurse'?"

It wasn`t meant to be a deep, meaningful or controversial contribution.

There is all the world of difference between a poor lost soul who offers to suck **** or give a five minute rumble in the back of a punter's car for twenty quid to feed her heroin addiction and/or pay her abusive pimp and a lady escort who works from a proper establishment with a Madame, clean sheets and is under no duress to provide the services she provides.

 

The former is ripe territory for sadistic murderers to prowl, the latter is totally different: the ladies are safe, consensual and the visitors are appreciative of the service they get and respect the establishment and the Madame's ladies. And the ladies earn a decent living.

 

Let's not cast all into the same net.

Prostitutues would not exist if it wasn't for the people who paid them to do these things. What about the sad cases who give them business - and the even sadder cases who then beat them up or murder them?

Non one deserves to be murdered, not even a prostitute.

For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an "Australian treasure!"

 

General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.

You'll love his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of an ABC interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military headquarters.

 

...FEMALE INTERVIEWER:

So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

 

GENERAL COSGROVE:

We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.

 

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:

Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

 

GENERAL COSGROVE:

I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

 

 

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:

Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

 

GENERAL COSGROVE:

I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

 

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:

But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

 

GENERAL COSGROVE:

Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

 

The radio went silent and the interview ended.
