Re: just plain wrong!


Hello Lewis,

I was looking at this work, & I tried to find some kind of human compassion=
or sense of dealing with political scum or anything else worth doing - but=
it seems that the individual who created the work is keen to spread hatred=
instead, whilst hiding behind a mask. It reminds me of the sort of individ=
ual who hates everyone & wants to shoot them all, a psycho. It also reminds=
me of a national front bigot - we get plenty of those backward types in th=
e UK. The sun newspaper has a few writing for them also. I hope the individ=
ual who setup this site did it learn something and not perpetrate even more=
bigotry in the world. Doubt it though...

marc

this is about as wrong as they come:
