Leo McKinstry: 'Sorry not to join the liberal wailing: heroin traffickers deserve to die'
This is an opinion piece from the Daily Heil about Akhmal Shaikh, who was executed by lethal injection in China this morning for drug smuggling. He was caught in Urumchi with a suitcase containing 4kg of heroin. Akhmal Shaikh, a British citizen, had serious bipolar disorder and recorded a song about rabbits and world peace. I'm not a great fan of drug smugglers, but anyone could see that the man was not well.
Nevertheless, Leo thinks that China is setting a splendid example by killing a man for a crime committed while he was not in full possession of his faculties. China is a drug-free paradise where citizens are at liberty to live their lives in peace and harmony, whereas Britain is a drug-addled open sewer, full of criminals, liberals and other undesirables, where the good, stalwart Audi-driving populace are oppressed by political correctness and speed cameras on dual carriageways.
Akhmal Shaikh wasn't even a proper British citizen anyway because he spent loads of time in Poland and United States. Whereas Viscount Rothermere, the owner of the Daily Mail is ENTIRELY a proper British citizen, even though he is non-domiciled for tax reasons and has spent most of his life and cash in France.
The buzzing fly atop this particular pile of excrement is that they have decided to illustrate the story with a giant picture of Kate Moss, with the caption A country which reveres such junkies as Kate Moss has no right to lecture China on its drugs policy, argues Leo McKinstry.
So the self-righteous hypocrites get to rail against our permissive society, and yet illustrate their article with a barely relevant picture of top totty. Which is something they do at least 10 times every day, because why have a relevant picture of someone unattractive when you can have an irrelevant one of some woman who makes the idiot menchildren who edit that rightwing rag want to spank one out in the bogs at break time?
I hate to up their unique user count, but you should see their splash page. Every single story is twisted to fit their agenda, from decent sales on the high street (£11bn VAT RISE SHAMBLES!) to the BBC taking nine of the top ten places in the ratings. (BBC HIT BY RATINGS SLUMP AS VIEWERS COMPLAIN!)
THEY are everything that is wrong with this country. They are gobshites.
