TOM Pride looks at some comments left by Daily Mail in reaction to news that Malala Yousafzai had won the Nobel Peace Prize:
“Send her back home.”
“How come she’s still here?”
“The UK taxpayer has been stumping up the bill for her to fly around the world.”
“Sick of hearing about her.”
“A joke. She has been awarded a Noble Prize for stopping a bullet?”
“I just find her annoying.”
“Why is she still here?”
“Living off the taxpayer.”
“Praise some British kids for a change.”
Malala Yousafzai is the champions of free speech, a campaigning girl recruited to be a BBC blogger and shot in the face at very close range by the Taliban. She copntinues to speak out against misogyny, bigotry, bias, spin and fear.
She was given refuge in the UK.
This country should be proud of that.
