First, it is worth noting his main rant is about how the CPS and Police were absolutely correct in bringing the case against Ross McKnight and Matthew Swift, accused of plotting a Columbine style massacre at their Manchester school.
The jury took 45 minutes to find them not guilty after a three week trial. With all the wisdom of someone who wasn't in the courtroom for any, let alone all, of the trial (and indeed, probably wasn't even in the country) he decides:
That probably says more about the members of the jury than the evidence laid before them.
Errr, well no. If a jury can dismiss a case of that (apparent) seriousness in less than an hour, that says everything about the evidence before them.
McKnight's lawyer said it was all fantasies caused by the 'frivolty of youth'. Littlejohn snorts with derision.
But then a comment from Jon in Camberley catches the eye. He wrote:
I remember when you said, in print, "Kill all the lawyers." Fantasies of mass murder, huh? Hardly the frivolity of middle age. I hope you're going to hand yourself in at your local police station at the first opportunity.
Really? Yes, indeed. During a webchat in 2007, Littlejohn was asked:
Do you agree that lawyers are overpowerful in their influence in British politics?
To which he replied:
YES - as Hal said to Dick in Shakespeare: First thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.
Later he is asked:
Will we ever get rid of this elf 'n' safety/PC mentality?
To which he said:
See previous answer about killing all the lawyers!
Dangerous fantasies of murder indeed.
Littlejohn moves on to the story of Sultan Kosen, recently crowned World's Tallest Man. He begins:
The world's tallest man is in London looking for a bride.
Well, not quite. He is London, promoting the launch of the 2010 Guinness Book of Records before flying off the Germany and the US. He said he'd had a tough time finding a girlfriend, so it's not quite the 'imposing foreigner stealing our women'-type situation Littlejohn first implies.
But then he comes up with a 'hilarious' solution:
A Pakistani woman was recently granted asylum in Britain on the grounds that, at 7ft 2in, she would be subject to persecution if returned home.
She was last seen living on benefits in a council house in Stockport.
This is a match made in heaven. I'm sure she'll be very happy in Turkey.
Oh, where does he come up with this stuff? Recycling his column of three years ago? But we thought Littlejohn didn't 'do' recycling?
Now, here's the first problem - the Pakistani woman in question (Zainab Bibi) appears not have been granted asylum in Britain.
On 6 January 2009, the Mail confidently stated Pakistani woman given asylum because she's 7ft 2in tall. But the decision had not been made and the Mail was pre-empting it for no reason other than to stir up anti-asylum feeling.
Four days later, it admitted her asylum claim was in fact rejected. This was echoed by a report in the Asian News.
Although both stories claimed she was looking to appeal against the decision, I can find no other news stories related to her case since then, so it appears that Littlejohn has, umm, got that wrong. Again.
What about his claim she was:
last seen living on benefits in a council house in Stockport.
Well, not quite. Again, going by the 10 January Mail report she was living:
in a council house in Stockport, Cheshire, until recently
The Asian News story confirms:
A spokeswoman from Stockport Homes confirmed that Miss Bibi was moved out of the borough by the Home Office and they are no longer supporting her.
It's perfectly possible that there have been some developments on her case that have escaped the Mail, Google, Yahoo and the BBC. But given Littlejohn's record at doing any proper research that seems highly unlikely.
Just put it down to yet another example where his 'merely reporting the facts' has let him down.
