Am I a dirty jippo (sic)? Free speech explained to a bigot

Tom Winnifrith
Thursday 15 January 2015

Someone using an anonymous name and made up email keeps on trying to post comments on this website. The content is the same – defamatory and untrue comments about me and my business interests followed by the assertion that I am a “dirty jippo” (sic)

I make an effort to shower once a day and am not of Romany extraction and I am afraid to say that I know no gypsies. When I was a child my parents used to let a couple of hippies called Rob and Maggie camp in our field and so I have taken the reins of a horse drawn gypsy wagon. But that is the closest I have got.

I have no problems with gypsies. Nor with free speech.  If this coward wants to go post racist and defamatory comments (anonymously) there are plenty of places to do it. Hitler was not keen on gypsies so maybe he should try a white supremacist site somewhere?

But as a publisher I am not obliged to provide this bigot or any other bigot with a platform.  As such this cretin can keep submitting untrue, defamatory and racist comments but he is mistaken if he thinks I shall approve any of them.
