Another Day, Another Insult from yet Another Tory!

David Cameron once said he was putting caring back into 'compassionate Conservatism' - really? Can't say I've noticed!

What an appalling condescending arrogant heartless party the Conservative party really is.

A few weeks ago the Labour Shadow Attorney General, Emily Thornberry tweeted a picture of a house which was bedecked in three large tatty, dirty England flags which were covering the windows. The house had a white van on the drive, and apparently the flags had been up there for five months! She did not pass judgement, she just tweeted a picture, this was immediately jumped on by the main stream media (MSM) and all sorts of things were attributed to her which were completely untrue. She resigned quickly, personally, although I like Ed Miliband, I think he was far too hasty, although this did come on the back of a month of personal abuse and attacks on Miliband and the Labour party he probably thought a quick decision was in best interests of Ms Thornberry and Labour and to be fair, the right wing Tory supporting press would not have let it drop, they would have continued with their character assassination of a genuinely good constituency MP (who actually grew up in a council house) and a good shadow cabinet minister until they had pushed her out, simply because she belonged to the Labour party. It is just part of the abuse and dirty tricks campaign being levelled at the Labour party and anyone supporting them.

With Emily Thornberry in mind and the Tory press behaviour, why the are they so quiet over the disgraceful comments of many in the Conservative party?
  • Conservative Peer, Lord Young resigned after inferring that the people 'had never had it so good' during the last recession. He described the loss of a 100,000 public sector jobs as "within the margin of error"
  • A former Tory MP Howard Flight said that benefit changes would "encourage the poor to breed" just days after being awarded a peerage by his good friend prime minister, David Cameron!
  • In 2010 David Shakespeare, the  most senior Conservative councillor in the country said that the unemployed should travel south and work as fruit pickers and replace European migrants!
In recent days we have had another deluge of insults from the Conservative party

  • Former Tory Culture secretary David Mellor, was caught on tape swearing at a London cab driver, calling him a "sweaty stupid little shit". Mellor has form, he has called a victim of child sex abuse "a weirdo". A chef  "a fat bastard" and  the police are investigating for a foul mouth racist rant to a Polish security guard.
  • Andrew Mitchell when he was Tory whip swore at police officers in Downing Street, calling them "f*****g plebs" in earshot of the public. The police officers 'crime'?  They would not open the main gates for him to ride his bicycle out of and had simply asked him to use the side gate.
  • Conservative Lord Freud was caught on tape saying that "disabled people were not worth being paid the minimum wage".
  • Conservative MP Sarah Wollosten and Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan insulted #CameronMustGo tweeters on Twitter when they inferred that tweeters were ignorant and knew nothing about economics.
  • Last week Tory MP Mark Garnier was caught on tape urging George Osborne that there was no need for his party to worry about attracting 'dog-end voters' who live in the "out-lying regions of Britain" they should be ignored as they earn less than £150,000 per year!
  • Yesterday (8th December 2014) Conservative Peer Baroness Jenkin was forced to apologise for saying that "the poor were going hungry because they can't cook!" (Never mind they have no money for gas or electric to cook their food under her government!)
  • Now this is morning (9th december 2014) yet another senior Tory politician, Chris Steward Conservative councillor said "there was no need for food banks as they are an insult to starving people around the world, and that donating to them allowed recipients to spend more money on cigarettes and alcohol"!

How much more of this crap do we have to take from these people who are so far removed from real life? They just don't get it, they don't understand what their policies are doing to good decent folk and what is more they just don't bloody care, they think the Tory right wing press has their backs and they will nit be forced out like Emily Thornberry , and they are probably right! the Tory press are very quiet when it comes to hounding Tories out who behave in this crass insulting way.

It's plainly obvious what the elitist Conservative party think of us ordinary folk, let's show them what we think about them on election day May 7th 2015.

George has got the hump with the BBC.

Poor George Osborne, last Wednesday he delivered his 2014 Autumn Statement to parliament, well I say that, but 99% was leaked in the week preceding the statement, the only thing that was not leaked was what the sycophants at the Sun, Times, Daily Mail and Telegraph kept on referring to as his rabbit out of the hat - 'stamp duty' and the  'little matter' of where his axe was going to fall in the form of vicious cuts to pay for it all.

We are told that Mr Osborne is a little upset because the BBC has been taking him to task over his Autumn Statement bonanza give away, never mind that he has been allowed to get away with 'reannouncing' reannouncements that have already been re-announced several times, or the fact that not once did Osborne allude to where all the billions was coming from to pay for his pre election trickery and blatant attempt to bribe the taxpayers with their own money. The British media, (75% Tory supporting) has allowed this chancellor one of the easiest rides imaginable, not once has any of the usual suspect newspapers quizzed Osborne about where money is going to come from, yet apparently this is not enough for George, he has to moan about the BBC not staying 'on message'.

This Tory chancellor and Tory prime minister have stuffed the BBC full of Conservative cronies from the top to the bottom, so I understand that Osborne is miffed, he obviously thought that the BBC was going to carry on in same biased way they have been carrying on for the past four and a half years, so it must have come as a shock to him when they suddenly decided to do their job and present the truth - for once!

Hopefully this is the start of the BBC regaining their objectivity, but I am not holding my breath. For the past two weeks there has been a campaign running on Twitter under the hashtag #CameronMustGo, it has been trending for two weeks and has been used over a million times. It has made the news and broadcast media in other countries, because the number if tweets it has attracted is unprecedented in twitter terms, yet the BBC have refused to include this in any of their news programmes, apparently, many thousands of people who feel so disenfranchised by the prime minister David Cameron taking to twitter to air their views over a million times is not news! One wonders what is then? Especially as the BBC thought Ed Miliband eating a bacon sandwich a little awkwardly was enough to make their flagship news programmes for a few days.

Two days have passed since Osborne got to his feet in the House of Commons and still the broadcast media and the Tory supporting press have not exposed the most mendacious propaganda that has been allowed to pass for the Chancellor's Autumn Statement in the history of the House of Commons.
