Does Littlecock Hate Women?

Anyone with an ounce of common sense may think the headline of this post is a reverse-Rentoul, especially after Littlecock infamously said of the serial murders of sex workers in Ipswich in 2006, "in the scheme of things the deaths of these five women is no great loss" and that "strangulation is an occupational hazard".

Now he's at it again, raging that the women murdered over the last ten months in Bradford have been "described not as prostitutes, but as 'women who worked as prostitutes' and resenting, as before, "the widespread implication that their murders are somehow society's fault".

Some of the comments on Littlecock's piece have rightly taken the blustering over-paid fool to task:

Given the amount of genuine hate you managed to impose upon yourself following your disgraceful "No great loss" comment over the Ipswich murders, I am staggered you would go anywhere near the horrific Bradford Murders. No wonder your face has all but disappeared from our screens and the best you can do these days is independent local radio gigs.

Stewart Lee devoted five minutes of stand up to Littlejohn's original comments about the Ipswich prostitute murders, he expresses his disgust at Littlejohn in a funnier and more eloquent way than most could ever hope to.

Spot on CD you've hit the nail on the head.

I think everyone reading this should search for the youtube clip of Stewart Lee where he talks about Richard Littlejohn. I wish I was as articulate as he is in that clip.

So, to save everyone the effort, here's the superb Stewart Lee clip in question - he gets going on Littlecock at 4 minutes 53 seconds:
