Draper Must Apologise

Dolly Draper admits his ignorance by allowing commentators on his site to use the derogatory term for mentally retarded kids - "windowlickers"; ignorance is no defence, he didn't allow Carol Thatcher to get away with Golliwog because she knew no better, so nor should he, especially as he is an expert in mental health.
Or as he would say in that excitable way of his:

Derek Draper's offensive comments have to stop - and John Prescott must stop linking to him NOW!

Sadly the left wing blogosphere has today proved itself to be even more offensive and objectionable.
We have no doubt that sections of the blogosphere will accuse us of picking a fight But we should not - and cannot - ignore this.
Because this goes beyond personal abuse.
This is about zero tolerance of bullying. It is about coming down firmly on bullys and their apologists and enablers wherever they show their sick, ugly heads.
We call on Derek Draper to remove these comments immediately and apologise. Take down these comments now. They are on your website. You should hang your head in shame.


UPDATE
Draper has issued a decent grown up apology. That's the way to do it.

Haha - I hoped this would get picked up on when I saw it in the comments. Somebody must save Dolly's fantastic comment where he claims ignorance of the abusive nature of the term. Pathetic but very funny!

Don't bother posting on Alastair Campbells' blog. That crusader for free speech only accepts blog comment that supports him. So, yet another spin machine for the once great Labour movement. New Labour = Thought Police
