The Guardian should stop publishing the work of Richard Seymour

Regular Guardian contributor Richard Seymour recently responded to comments by Falklands veteran Simon Weston, who suffered serious injuries of which he still bears the scars when his ship was bombed during the conflict, by Tweeting "Seriously, who gives a shit what Simon Weston thinks? If he knew anything, he’s still have his face”.

This crass personal attack has no place as part of civilised discourse, and if The Guardian wishes to remain part of that civilised discourse then it should very clearly distance itself Seymour by refusing to publish any more of his work.
