Yes he is. But the people who employed him are exactly the same. As are the editorial team who passed that article. And the photo team who matched the picture of a mixed race man with a gorilla. And the sub editors who didn't tone it down. etc etc

While it's hilarious that someone who has spent his entire career bullying and abusing people has found himself suddenly scapegoated, his colleagues were perfectly happy with that obnoxious pile of race-baiting shite until they discovered it might just be over the legal line when it came to inciting racial hatred. Morally they have no problem with it as it stands - the fact they went ahead with publication demonstrates that.

It is certainly true that the "One bad apple" argument will fail spectacularly in this case.

But let's enjoy this while it's fresh, even if 2 decades overdue.

I do expect a backlash from the gutter press.
Once the dust has settled, the episode will be re-written and we'll be reminded how poor Kelvin was persecuted by the dark forces of the liberal elite.
Hopkins and O'Neill will tear their rainnments and bemoan the "attack on free speech".
And the rest of the press will follow suit in less dramatic fashion.
Littlejohn will compose an Eulogy "How was he to know, the man doesn't look a bit like the housemaid from Tom and Jerry" and hint at "score settling".

Meanwhile several Mail commentators are shocked to discover the the "previously hilarious" Kelvin Mckenzie is in fact mixed race, and alter their opinions of him.

One despairs...


And still no statement from Sacha Baron-Cohen / Paul Nuttals of the UKIPs.

Well it's not like their isn't another 100 articles that could have sunk him, rehash some Hillsborough lies he spoke, suggest it's new and unearthed and pretend he had gone too far.
