Grant Shapps (duty fall guy) did the usual round of media whipping boy on today’s political round-up. As Conservative Party Chairman he delighted in explaining the defection of UKIP MEP Amjad Bashir.

Tories are awful at defections

Tories are awful at defections

Shapps told Murnaghan (SkyNews) and Andrew Neil (BBC Sunday Politics) that Farage’s UKIP had manufactured certain anomalies with Bashir’s past, in an attempt to trash his reputation, after discovering he was about to defect to the Tories.

Shapps was asked if he had done due diligence prior to welcoming Bashir aboard? He insisted he and his party had! But now it looks like they were more interested in a defection story going their way, and not at all diligent!

Over at Breitbart they have more to say.

That awful Green Party interview by BBC Sunday Politics’ Andrew Neil!

When Gordon Brown labelled Mrs Duffy  ‘a bigoted woman’ for asking him why his Labour government was allowing foreigners to take British jobs (don’t forget he once claimed ‘British Jobs for British Workers’)  he instantly created around 30 million bigots!  Why wouldn’t our entire working population be concerned about their job being given to an immigrant happy to work for less. Equally,  why wouldn’t the average employer take advantage of cheap immigrant labour if it was available?

The left always label anyone concerned about a threat to our lives or national security as ‘bigots’. It’s their way a shutting down a debate they find uncomfortable!

So when Mathew Richardson said: “I’ve said before, people talk about Ukip being bigots. There are hundreds of thousands of bigots in the United Kingdom and they deserve representation.” He was simply referring to the entire UKIP database.

UKIP supporters manifest themselves in all corners of the political divide. They used to be referred to, benignly, as ‘the silent majority’.

We are all bigots aren't we?

We are all bigots aren’t we?

The man in the pub, the lady in the butchers,  the bigot in the armchair shouting at the TV ‘Alf Garnet style’ – we are all bigots – simply because a bigot is someone who we think is in possession of views someone else   thinks are unfair.

This weekend the press and broadcast media, largely controlled by bigots, have been displaying mass hysteria towards UKIP and Mathew Richardson. However the British public are thinking something completely different, they are seeing a man who understands their bigoted views and relates to them.

 

As we reported last week,  Lynton Crosby and George Osborne are attempting to create chaos and sabotage the televised Leader’s Debates. It appears they’ve succeeded if you read this Spectator article by Isabel Hardman

Broadcasters are now desperately trying to get David Cameron to the cameron-_raving_1631384cpodium and have reset the terms of the debates to include the Green Party and nationalists from Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

It seems the broadcasters have been negligent and overlooked the DUP!

Prepare yourselves for more party political posturing as others demand inclusion.

Now who currently leads the Monster Raving Looney Party?

Over at Iain Dale’s Blog there is a certain amount of sympathy for Labour Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna.

As Iain Dale points out:

I don’t blame him. There was nothing wrong in Murnaghan asking him about the Pickles letter, but to press it in the way he did (and with a bit of a smirk on his face) was rude, smart-arsish and counter productive.

If a guest walks out of an interview, as a interviewer, it’s you who looks bad, not the guest. If that happened to me, I would think I had failed in my job.

Whilst we don’t disagree that Murnaghan was at fault, Umunna could have acted more professionally. He lost his cool and that’s unforgivable from today’s highly media trained politicians.

In effect, both men were out of order, the public is unimpressed by this type of TV experience. Little wonder the viewing figures are down year after year across the UK mainstream media, and no surprise that politicians are seen in such low regard by the majority of voters.
