Say what you like about Rupert Murdoch’s Currant Bun, but sometimes it nails the issue with unerring precision. Most media today wittered sympathy for the paltry fine let-off awarded to the loudmouth racist. Not The Sun:
Dior havin’ a laugh
£20m Galliano fined £2.64 for racist rants
By NICK PARKER, Chief Foreign Correspondent, and DAN SALES
DISGRACED Dior designer John Galliano was let off yesterday over his vile anti-Jewish and racist rants.
A French court convicted the 50-year-old fashion guru — caught raging on a Sun video — but ordered him to pay just one euro (88p) to his three victims. That is £2.64 in total.
Galliano, sacked as Dior’s chief designer over the scandal, was convicted of “casting public insults based on origin, religious affiliation or ethnicity” following two ugly incidents in a chic Paris bar.
He could have been jailed for six months and fined £20,000.
