Former BBC Talking Head: Brexit Voters Should Be Left to ‘Starve and Die’
Journalist under fire for social media rant wishing death on pensioners
British establishment media talking head Terry Christian suggested people who support Brexit should be deprived of food and medicine in the event of a 'no-deal Brexit,' adding he is hoping for a “good virulent strain” of flu to strike down pensioners who voted to leave the EU.
In a somewhat mean-spirited social media post, former BBC and Channel 4 broadcaster Christian wrote:
“No Deal Brexit [sic] will cause shortage of flu vaccine."
“Should have 2 queues at Doctors [sic] one for Brexit [sic] one for remain. Brexit queue gets told they dont [sic] need vaccines as they were put together by experts they should [sic] just believe harder. Only remainers get vaccinated. It’s win-win,” he added.
But when one of his followers noted that his suggestion could have a negative impact on society at large, he dismissed the notion.
“‘Its [sic] the flu – so mainly OAPs [Old Age Pensioners]. If they voted to destroy our lives – lets [sic] hope its [sic] a good virulent strain this year -[sic]”.
Northumbria University professor challenged him on the callousness of his remarks, describing them as “despicable” and that “If Remainers cannot be better than this they have lost already,” Christian was remorseless.
“If you truly think that you don’t get out in the real world enough,” he sneered, doubling down on his position.
“I truly hope the darkness comes to them all.”
“They all knew exactly what they were voting for, besides vaccines are put together by experts, and they don’t like them,” he told another critic, adding a whimsical winking emoji, “heres [sic] to mother nature.”
“It’s going to be Darwinian. In ignorance they’ve aqueisced [sic] in cutting their own throats,” he added elsewhere.

Imagine when there are shortages of food fuel and medicines caused by No Deal brexit , the fury at those thick c**ts getting served. They voted to starve and die , let them— terry christian (@terrychristian) August 30, 2019
Christian’s cruel comments about Brexit-voting pensioners being deprived of flu vaccines and medicines came amid other comments about Brexit supporters being starved in the event of food shortages.
“Imagine when there are shortages of food fuel and medicines caused by No Deal Brexit, the fury at those thick c**ts getting served [sic],” he tweeted angrily.
“They voted to starve and die , let them [sic]” he added bitterly.
Christian recently claimed he was aware of employers who were sacking known Brexit supporters from their workforce, urging “all employers should follow suit where possible.”
“Wigan, Tameside, Oldham, Rochdale, Bolton, Salford, Bury, Stockport, Trafford all voted to leave, so these are the areas you want people sacking & forced into homelessness Terry?” asked one shocked social media user.
“Yes , [sic] lots of those areas sadly thought voting to leave the EU would mean no more Pakistanis and other muslims [sic] coming in, a racist vote [sic]” the journalist alleged coldly.
Last month, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson accused pro-EU MP's s of “collaborating” with their “European friends” to block Brexit.
Johnson made the comments during “People’s PMQs” on Wednesday, using Facebook to talk directly to the country and answering questions from members of the public.
“There is a terrible kind of collaboration, as it were, going on between those who think they can block Brexit in Parliament and our European friends,” Johnson said.
