    Poor old Judy Finnigan, begin again.
    Unfortunately you've said it now, Judy mate. Live tv, you can't begin again. You of all people should know that. Too late, you trivialised a criminal, immoral act and now your family are being trolled by these dickheads who think they also can trivialise it. Richard seems to be taking these threats very seriously.
    This is irony, Judy. It's not funny, but these are idle threats. Realistically, nobody is going to harm your daughter. You even implied that it isn't so bad if the victim is drunk. Did the nasty trolls not offer to buy her a few shots first?
    At least the subject of sex crime is being talked about more. With the latest crime figures, it seems more victims of sex crimes are coming forward. So we don't need public figures siding with convicted rapists, thanks.

    Here's a transcript of what she said:

    She's talking about Ched Evans and whether he should be allowed to continue his career after his release.

    I honestly don't see anything wrong in what she's said. She's never said rape is anything less than reprehensible. It's fine to disagree that he should be allowed to carry on playing professional football, but the argument 'he's done his time, he's now a free man' doesn't warrant the reaction.

    Yes but some people HAVE taken offence, and they've illustrated this offence by threatening to rape her daughter. Which is completely reasonable.

    People are scum.

    "Are we to refuse to let him do his job even though he has served his time?"

    Yep.

    I'm not saying he should be refused any job. But having his old job back? Is that what normally happens to convicted criminals? I wasn't aware of this. I thought they could consider themselves to be extremely lucky if they didn't lose their job, or am i missing something?

    A very silly thing for her to say, and an even more awful reaction.

    He was released by Sheffield United when he was convicted, so in effect, he lost his job. Nothing stopping him applying for it, in effect, now that he's out.

    Are you saying it's a silly thing to say in the sense that what she has said is in any way 'wrong,' or silly in the sense that whenever anyone tries to suggest certain rapes are not as bad as others they're immediately pounced on as some sort of backwards idiot.

    I agree some rapes are not as bad as others. In the same way that some murders are not as bad as others. It's her apparent inability to grasp how serious the crime of rape actually is and her husbands attempt to divert attention onto the trolls who are clearly not convicted rapists or they wouldn't be picking on the Finnigans, would they?

    She has described the rape as 'reprehensible.' In what way did she not grasp how serious it was?

    The debate was about whether Ched Evans should be allowed to work again. On one hand, we have the argument that he should, as we have a justice system, and he's been punished and served his time. On the other, he should be punished forever. Agreeing with the former in no way trivialises the crime.

    They actually just let his contract run down until it finished (whilst he was in prison). I assume they weren't actually paying him though.

    I think it's also worth noting that he hasn't actually served his sentence yet. Just the part where he is in prison. The rest will be served under licence. He's never admitted any guilt or shown any remorse either.

    I honestly find the fact that someone behind the camera decided that a programme as trivial and shallow as Loose Women would be a good place to talk about a subject as serious as rape more offensive than what that idiot said.

    Sure she said something ridiculous live on air, but that's what happens when you push a microphone in front of an idiot and ask them a question.

    as has already been stated, he's served his time. so once you get over your hyper-feminist feelings being hurt, you have no choice but to mature a little, and try to understand that according to law this individual has a right to weave his way back into society - eg work, lifestyle, possibly even fake tan, Leeds nightclub success - unless, you believe like me rapists ought to face the death penalty upon conviction?

    "He's never admitted any guilt or shown any remorse either."
    I'm highly suspicious of the double standards encouraged by our bullshit laughable society today, usually espoused and engineered by the incredibly intelligent leftist yoof. do I believe the amount of rape claims aimed at young footballers today equates to an epidemic of footballer rapists, raping & molesting their way to quite literally the top of the league, possibly triggered by working class masculinity (needs to be eradicated!) and the phallic like subconscious message of 'scoring a goal'?

    er, no. so clearly then why are today's yoof footballer blokes accused of rapes, like every month?
    I'll leave that to you gais to discuss, however I shall at least make an effort to concur with the consensus before I leave, in that the reasoning cannot have anything to do with todays super free girlies, making incredibly bad decisions under zero duress, refusing to take full, or any responsibility at all. you go girls. cos there's nothing that says 'freedom' and 'equality' quite like refusing to accept personal blame for ones actions.

    "I honestly find the fact that someone behind the camera decided that a programme as trivial and shallow as Loose Women"

    "I, the supreme leader of the socialist republic of Leeds, claim loose women to be nothing more than a conduit to idiocy and shallowness. I forbid you from engaging in any discussion beyond make up tips, cute boys and eastenders. The fact that you, as free females in my socialist utopia, wish to be free to discuss any subject at will, means little to me or the republic's greater cause. Know thy place, shallow one."

    so women should have freedom, like total uber freedom. but they should also know their talk shows are fucking stupid and shallow. so stop talking about important things you stupid fucking bitches. stick to discussing what you're good at, like boys, make up and cup cakes. sounds legit.

    At what point do socialism and working class equality play any part in this discussion?

    Do us a favour son, **** off and when you get there **** off a little bit more. The adults are having a conversation. It's rude to interrupt
