Ursula Presgrave: idiot sent to court of saying something idiotic
Free Speech is under threat. The Mail says the “star of BBC reality TV show The Call Centre faces JAIL after posting ‘sick’ Facebook message that ‘anyone born with Down’s Syndrome should be put down’.”
Being a Call Centre star must be a bit like being a Jeremy Corbyn’s tailor or Ricky Hatton’s nutritionist. So much for the billing. What did Ursula Presgrave says?
Anyone born with down syndrome should be put down, it’s just cruel to let them lead a pointless life of a vegetable
Not nice. Pathetic. Deliberately designed to cause offence. But prison?
Hundreds of people posted their disgust and many then went to the police
Can we put down the ones who called in the cops? Only joking. Really. JOKE!
The 23-year-old pleaded guilty to an offence under the Malicious Communications act and now faces a maximum sentence of six months in jail or a £5,000 fine.
What utter balls. What horror. What ridiculous, snide-mouthed toss.
Presgrave, who was known on the BBC show for her tattoos, piercings and foul language, told Facebook followers…
You kind of get what it says on the tin, with Presgrave.
More than 550 people commented on the post and described it as ‘vile’, ‘sick’, and ‘attention-seeking’.
Well, a small comment made it all the way to the national press and the police Narks Hotline.
The call centre worker, who appeared alongside Nev Wilshire in the BBC Three fly-on-the-wall series, was arrested after police also found photos joking about the disabled on her phone, Swansea Magistrates’ Court heard.
It went to court!
Ursula, who worked at the Save Britain Money call centre in her home city of Swansea, told police ‘she wanted people to notice her’ when she wrote the post.
And that’s a crime?
Mark Davies, defending, told Swansea Magistrates Court: ‘There is genuine remorse, and she would like to make a public apology.'”
Better she told every one to ‘F*** off!”
Presgrave, of Swansea, was released on bail for reports and will be sentenced later this month.
We really are in a mess.
