Vile Child-abusers and killers used for game
A CARD game has gone on sale featuring dozens of well-known paedophiles.
Child abuse victims and charities say they are appalled by British Nonces trumps.
The 54 cards bear images of DJ Jimmy Savile, artist Rolf Harris, publicist Max Clifford and MP Cyril Smith.
Roy Whiting, given life for murdering eight-year-old Sarah Payne in 2000, is included
Also in the deck are Savile’s chauffeur David Smith, who committed suicide last year, priest Francis Cullen, diplomat Sir Peter Hayman and ex-DJ Chris Denning.
Their crimes are listed next to scores in categories such as “slipperiness”, “remorse” and “nonceoriety”.
The game is advertised online for £7.87 and as suitable for 14-year-olds.
Amazon took the game off its site yesterday.
It was still available on two sites — Meaty Trumps and Brown Jewel. A spokesman for Lancashire-based Brown Jewel declined to comment and said in an email: “I’m very busy, thanks.”
The game’s creator Vyvyan Lutyan said: “The game is not intended to be fun, it is a grim game which holds up a satirical mirror to the British Establishment.”
Jill — abused by Clifford when she was just 14 — said: “It’s disgusting, especially selling it to teenagers.
“I was hoping people would take the subject of child abuse more seriously.”
Mum-of-two Jill, 62, gave up her anonymity to speak out after Clifford, 71, was jailed for eight years in May.
She added: “It’s sick that someone is trying to make money out of it. There’s no scruples at all.
“Whoever has come up with this should be ashamed of themselves, laughing at other people’s misfortune. It’s just a joke.”
