Introduction — Dec 12, 2016
It’s not often that the political views of convicted killers are considered newsworthy. However, the media seems to have paid special attention to the opinions of one of Britain’s longest serving prisoners and most notorious killers.
Convicted and sentenced to life in prison for sexually abusing and murdering five youngsters in the 60’s, Ian Brady and his lover Myra Hindley came to be seen in the popular press as the embodiment of evil.
That was more than half-a-century ago but Brady, who is still alive, has come to the attention of the mainstream media once again.
Only now the media aren’t interested in his crimes, which are history now, but his opinion on Brexit. Readers will note that this is the main focus of the following article. If only subliminally, the implication being that child killers, sexual deviants and individuals of the very worst sort support Brexit.
As the correspondent who sent this in asked: is this a sign of desperation or what? Ed.
Moors murderer Ian Brady says Brexit judges ‘must not block the people’s vote’

Moors murderer Ian Brady, 78, who sexually abused and killed five children in the 60s with his lover Myra Hindley, has railed against the judges blocking the Brexit vote.
He also revealed that he is suffering from a ‘terminal’ lung condition.
Brady, Britain’s longest-serving prisoner, is currently held in a high-security psychiatric hospital in Ashworth, Liverpool.
Brady said, ‘Those three public school judges who dredged up a law from the seventeenth century to obstruct the people’s vote for Brexit, additionally exemplify the corrupt establishment, and the myth of a politically independent judiciary.’
Brady is now said to be so frail he has to be moved with a hoist.
Brady reportedly sent Christmas cards four months early, amid concerns for his health, the Sun reports.
Brady wrote, ‘I’m still bedridden and have been for over two years. The lung and chest condition is terminal.’
