Guardian Hack Kia Abdullah Laughs At Death of Gap Year Kids

The news broke overnight that three students were killed on their gap year adventure to Thailand. Bruno Melling-Firth, Conrad Quashie and Max Boomgaarden-Cook, all 19, died when their bus travelling to Chiang Mai collided with another bus. A tragedy and a nightmare scenario for the parents of thousands of students travelling around the world every year. There have been outpourings of sympathy from across the media today, with one exception – one Guardian class crusader:

The three boys were all state-educated at The Charter School in South London.
