Apologise for having published an unjust attack on the late Lucy Meadows

This petition had 155 supporters


To suggest, as he did, that Lucy Meadows was in the wrong job, was a threat to her pupils' innocence and should "disappear quietly" rather than risk "confusing" a ten-year-old, Richard Littlejohn would have undeniably caused an enormous amount of distress to someone who, in her own words, was still on "a long and difficult journey". The Daily Mail allowed Richard Littlejohn to publicly flog someone who actually needed respect and compassion (which is what I believe the school she worked at was trying to provide). Well, as pointed out by the following article: http://www.freethoughtblogs.com/zinniajones/2013/03/trans-woman-commits-suicide-after-being-bullied-by-the-daily-mail/ - Lucy Meadows did "disappear quietly". This is beyond tragic and, while it is but a miniscule gesture under the circumstances, I strongly believe The Daily Mail has an apology to make. It is the very least it could do. Lets make some noise for Lucy.
