The prime minister was among dozens of people across the UK who were targeted by a poison pen letter writer.And this is news?
Gordon Brown's Fife constituency office received a letter in April, while others were sent to mosques, hospitals, universities and private homes.That’s what constitutes ‘hate’ now..? Wanting to get out of Europe?
Much of the hate mail, mostly posted from Hampshire, includes references to "repatriation" and "exit Europe".
They have also been received in Derbyshire, Merseyside, Lincolnshire and Bedfordshire.There’s a manhunt going on for a poison pen crank?
These forces had initially been conducting separate investigations until Hampshire Police set up Operation Heron in January 2009 to co-ordinate the search.
I’m sure it’s not nice to have a letter full of obscenities, perhaps written in green ink, delivered to your door, but seriously! Don’t the police have better things to do?
One of the letters was sent to Somers Park Primary School in Portsmouth.Oh, good grief! Have we lost all sense of proportion in this country?
Head teacher Janet Fleming said: "The content of the letter was sickening.
"But I would want to assure parents that this is a perfectly safe environment for their children to be in and that all the steps necessary to keep children safe were in place and still are in place.
"I am concerned that the person who sent it is not mentally stable. The language is appalling."
Just throw it away, love. Unless it contains a direct threat to your children, or perhaps a severed body part, it’s just a crank.
By now, you must know (the police would have told you) that he or she has written to all sorts of people. So why the ‘CODE RED! CODE RED!’ response? Do you think it will reassure the parents?
Det Insp Donna Goff, of Hampshire Constabulary, said: "Many of the letters people have found extremely distressing.By receiving one letter, no matter how obscene?
"Many people have felt extremely victimised by the letters."
People need to get a grip…
The letters do not target a particular race, culture or religious group but are all pro-English, investigators said.Ah, I see where this is going…
The inquiry will feature on the BBC1's Crimewatch programme on Tuesday night when officers will appeal for assistance in tracing the culprit.What are they going to do? Ask the audience if they know anyone who is too ‘pro-English’?
Al-Jahom concurs on the pointlessness of this manhunt, and has an example of the letters from the Beeb too.
