Comic 'Sickening' Comments About Gosport Pupils
Comedian Frankie Boyle has been attacked over his 'sickening' comments about 2,100 Hampshire schoolchildren who formed the Olympic rings in their school grounds to raise money for charity.
The pupils of Bay House School in Gosport won a new world record by arranging themselves in the shape of the Olympic logo.
But the Mock The Week star wrote in a national newspaper that their effort was 'the most autistic response to a global sporting event' .
And added: "For the kids of Gosport, learning how to stand bewildered in a blue jumper is all they need to qualify them for a life of working in 99p stores."
Caroline Dinenage, MP for Gosport, says: "It sickens me, these people who make a living and spend their lives being spiteful towards others to make money.
"The kids have got themselves a Guinness world record and nobody can take that away from them."
Headteacher Ian Potter says: "The pride we feel in the young people of Bay House School raising a significant sum of money for the orphans of Malawi in their achievement of breaking a world record must not be lost."
