A BOSS caused outrage by saying he would rather employ a paedophile than former servicemen or women. Karl Winn, 60, said that "ex-drug dealers, convicts and child molesters" made better employees than war heroes, The Sun reported. Forces Recruitment Services - which help find jobs for former British military personnel - had emailed Winn inviting him to consider taking on ex-servicemen and women at the Webeurope design company he runs in Taunton, Somerset.
Winn, a former social worker, replied: "Personally, I'd rather recruit ex-drug dealers, convicts and even child molesters rather than consider anybody who has been in the pay of the British Government. "Anybody who has been in the pay of such a military force, and by their silence and complicity has condoned such illegal and immoral actions while accepting a monthly blood-stained pay-packet, certainly will not be considered for employment by us! "Please remove us from your email list. Regards, Karl."

Winn tried to deny he wrote the email when first challenged, blaming instead a "disgruntled" worker who had managed to hack into his personal email. But confronted by further emails between him and the recruitment agency he caved in and admitted he had written them - but refused to apologise.

Winn, who employs 16 people, agreed that his views were "a bit over the top," but continued, "I don't regret saying it at all. "Even if it costs me money, I'll still stand up for what I believe in." Winn later issued a media statement to clarify his views. "Ex-pedophiles and drug addicts who have been charged and paid the price for their actions deserve a chance to get on with their lives. In my opinion, military personnel who have got away with murder do not," he said.

"I will therefore continue with my blanket ban on employing ex-military personnel. I understand this will affect innocent as well as guilty people."


Shall we let everyone know what a charmer this guy is?
