As I observed in a comment, Helen Pidd has tweeted that someone tweeted her unkindly, asserting that the (only) reason her guest, the immigrant “Yasser”, didn’t rape her was because she was too ugly. It was hilarious (in my slightly cruel opinion) that some of her co-tweeters tried to console her by intimating that she wasn’t ugly at all.
Someone here just suggested that the only reason my lodger hasn't raped me is that I'm so ugly. What is wrong with some people?— Helen Pidd (@helenpidd) January 10, 2016
She and they were more concerned about that ‘lookist’ insult than about the implication that immigrants would rape anything that wasn’t covered in a black sack.
Yasser’s self control saved the day, luckily for the theory that all immigrants are gentlemen.
David Davies believes that it doesn’t matter who heads the “out” campaign, but I beg to differ. While we’re on the topic of ‘looks’, everything is about appearance these days, and if not ‘looks’, it’s personality.
If he wasn’t a bit too ‘yesterday’ I’d suggest David Mitchell. His stamp is on everything else ‘BBC’, but Brexit? He’s probably a ‘yes’ rather than a ‘no.’ What about Joey Essex? He’s popular with the public. He could get his head around the concept of ‘yes’ and ‘no’, surely. But I suppose he might get them mixed up.
I know. A woman. That’s what we need. A woman to head the “No’ campaign! Katie Hopkins!
