Right Thinking: Sorry

Dr. Frank Shizenhausen’s latest post shows that even hard-hitting and searing columnists can cross the line

Yesterday I wrote a post suggesting that beneficiaries should turn to prostitution and crime to supplement their incomes, rather than rely on food bank handouts.

I was wrong and I unreservedly apologise.

I know a lot of drug dealers, pimps, petty criminals and streetwalkers. They are all good people, doing their bit to improve their lot, give their clients a buzz, and put food on the table. That I would even suggest their noble trades be opened up to those wastrels on benefits fills me with regret and shame.

Rest assured that I’ll be careful not to make inappropriate comparisons next time I post something about vermin.
