Ms V Newton

Dear Ms Newton,
We are horrified at the recent article by Jeremy Clarkson in your publication. As Parliamentarians of every persuasion, we condemn in the strongest terms the violent misogynistic language against The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. This sort of language has no place in our country, and it is unacceptable that it was allowed to be published in a mainstream newspaper.
Ms Markle has faced multiple credible threats to her life, requiring the intervention of The Metropolitan Police. Hateful articles like the one written by Mr Clarkson do not exist in a vacuum, and directly contribute to this unacceptable climate of hatred and violence.
We are deeply concerned about the role modelling being promoted to young men and boys, that they can verbally attack women without a consequence or that it is okay to use violent language to address a woman that you might disagree with.
You will no doubt know how violence against women and girls has surged across Britain in recent years. We must do better.
Enough is enough. We cannot allow this type of behaviour to go unchecked any longer. We welcome The Sun’s retraction of the article, we now demand action is taken against Mr Clarkson and an unreserved apology is issued to Ms Markle immediately. We further demand definitive action is taken to ensure no article like this is ever published again.
