Is there something inherently psychotic about Tories, that they think they have a God-given right to cause harm to others?
Already today (at the time of writing), This Site has published an article about a Tory who had more than 1,500 child sex images, including torture and bestiality. He walked free because he was not considered a danger to children, even though the judge stated clearly, in court, that people who consume these images cause other people to make them.
Nigel Wright is a danger to children. He contaminated Tesco baby food with metal shards during an attempt to blackmail the supermarket giant, claiming that he represented dairy farmers who had been underpaid by the firm.
He tried to get Tesco to pay him £1.4 million in return for information about where he had hidden the jars.
Wright is a former Conservative councillor who then shifted to UKIP, for whom he was a Parliamentary candidate.
Look at the details:
The court heard two mothers found the metal fragments when they were feeding their children after Wright began his two-year campaign in the spring of 2018.
He threatened to inject tins of fruit with cyanide and salmonella unless the supermarket giant handed over the cash in Bitcoin.
He triggered two nationwide recalls on Cow & Gate and Heinz baby food as a result of the threats, prompting the supermarket to clear 140,000 products from the shelves.
A detective posed as a Tesco employee named Sam Scott and handed over £100,000 in the crypto-currency to trap the blackmailer.
Wright was caught on CCTV buying wine and flowers for his wife after placing a contaminated jar on the shelves of a Tesco branch in Lockerbie in Scotland on November 29 last year.
It was said that he took ‘delight’ in what he was doing, believing he could get rich anonymously by using bitcoin and downloading the Tor browser that allows anonymous communication.
This is really sick stuff, and it demonstrates that at least some people who identify as Conservatives have serious psychological problems.
It is not acceptable for Wright to endanger other people’s children for the sake of a bit of cash – just is it was not acceptable for Mark Lerigo to cause children to be harmed for the sake of his personal gratification.
But these Tories blithely carry on, in the unshakeable belief that they are above the law.
After all, their colleagues in Boris Johnson’s government are.
Their attitude seems to be, why shouldn’t they be above the law, too?
