This is deeply unpleasant stuff from BASC.
Posted on the BASC website last week:
Targeted and abusive, aimed at a young woman at the start of her conservation career, who would never in a million years consider herself a ‘celebrity’.
Megan’s ‘crime’? First, writing an accurate post on social media about the environmental damage caused by driven grouse shooting. And second, being Chris Packham’s step-daughter.
BASC’s Garry Doolan, ex-tabloid hack (and boy, can’t you tell) accuses Megan of writing ‘woke guff‘ (which, as Mark Avery points out here, is a term which ‘tends to be used pejoratively only by the far right of politics, and racists’) and says her words were ‘admirably tackled in the comments thread‘.
By ‘admirably tackled‘ is he referring to the personal abuse Megan has received, which, unsurprisingly, has since increased considerably since BASC published this personal attack?
Nasty stuff, BASC, very nasty indeed.
