It has come to my attention that Desborough and his wife have been receiving rape threats. This is unacceptable and shameful behaviour, and there is no place for it within proper discourse.
No matter my personal feelings, Desborough is a human being and deserves dignity and respect like anyone else. I hope he and his wife have a strong emotional support network to help get them through this. Rape Crisis UK has a counselling hotline should either of them need it. As someone who has also been targeted by such attacks, it is not an experience I would wish on anyone, and my thoughts are with the Desboroughs as they work through this.
