Michael Winner (1935-2013) slams Richard Littlejohn homophobia

For all the B-movies and crappy commercialsScrapbook’s favourite memory of Michael Winner — who died today aged 77 — will be his comprehensive demolition of Richard Littlejohn for homophobia on the columnist’s own Live and Uncut TV show in 1994:

“I’m quite appalled and very nearly walked out to be on a British television programme where lesbians are wheeled in for you to make smutty and offensive remarks to [audience applauds].”

“I think it was an absolutely shameful exhibition of vulgarity directed toward a minority. I think the lesbians have come over with considerable dignity and you’ve come over as an arsehole.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
