A RANTING company boss has caused outrage by claiming that he would rather employ a PAEDOPHILE than one of our brave troops.
Karl Winn, 60, said he would "recruit ex-drug dealers, convicts and child molesters" instead of former servicemen or women. Winn yesterday he said he did not regret his actions - and would continue his "blanket ban" on heroes.
Forces Recruitment Services - which help find jobs for former military personnel back in "Civvy Street" - had emailed Winn inviting him to consider taking on ex-servicemen and women at the Webeurope net design company he runs in Taunton, Somerset.
Winn, a former social worker, wrote back: "Personally, I'd rather recruit ex-drug dealers, convicts and even child molesters rather than consider anybody who has been in the pay of the British Government.
"Anybody who has been in the pay of such a military force, and by their silence and complicity has condoned such illegal and immoral actions while accepting a monthly blood-stained pay-packet, certainly will not be considered for employment by us!
He said: "Ex-paedophiles and drug addicts who have been charged and paid the price for their actions deserve a chance to get on with their lives. In my opinion, military personnel who have got away with murder do not.
"I will therefore continue with my blanket ban on employing ex-military personnel. I understand this will affect innocent as well as guilty people." No wonder OUR country is in the state it is in with people like this walking around while OUR troops are fighting and dying as this object is making money hand over fist.
All OUR returning troops want is the opportunity to pay their own way with a job they can do, they do not need discrimination in any way at all. If you feel as bloody angry as I do about this lefty then you can tell him how you feel at the email addresses below as I have done.
