UK – In a bizarre twist we at the Bastard have received a letter from ‘Swindle, Underhand and Crook’ solicitors. Threatening legal action against the Bastard for defamation of the good name of Ian Brady, resident of Ashworth Hospital, Merseyside.
The letter alleges that in our article separated at birth, where we suggest that Iain Brady and Iain Duncan Smith, were separated at birth due to their similar facial appearance. Similar articles can be found in many other prominent weekly publications.
The letter goes on that their client Mr Ian Brady object in the strongest terms to being compared to The Conservative
Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith.
He goes on it may be true that I have murdered little children and a couple of others face to face. I am at least honest enough to admit it. Iain Duncan Smith on the other hand has murdered thousands, in the same way that an administrator in a Nazi mental hospital, who signs the order to terminate the lives of the patients in his care.
On a further level Our client, Mr Brady is widely acknowledged as a genius. Iain Duncan Smith is frequently described as the thickest ex-Guardsman, in a regiment noted for the inbred stupidity of its members.
We are instructed to demand that you take down the offensive article and publish an apology on the front page of your offensive little rag.
Well we have only one thing to say sue and be damned
