Metro Hack – Ill-Educated, Or Just Plain Bigoted? – Slurs Farage!


Exactly who is Aidan Milan?

He writes for London’s rather basic ‘Metro’ newspaper.

But he is hardly a journalist, judging from his insertion of a nasty pejorative into what is meant to be an informative news story this week.

It’s ostensible aim is to help readers find how to join the new Brexit Party – but almost instantly Milan slurs the Brexit hero Nigel Farage as an ‘INFAMOUS’ right-wing politician…’

Oh yeah?

PS

Although, among British people, Aidan is always a name bestown on boy-children, the culprit here, after further investigation, turned out to be a female, whose intellectual depth may be measured by her vacuous self-description..
