If you’ve read Tory blogs and tweets you’ll know there are some very nasty people in their ranks – racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic and just plain offensive to most of the rest of us. You probably also know of the secret undercurrent of paedophilia in the party elite but that was largely covered up by police collusion in the interests of ‘state security.’
I had a feeling the Tory ‘surge’ in the local elections would bring some of them into the light where media exposure can only damage their party just in time for the next independence referendum and I was right. I’m not suggesting any of this lower order in the party are paedophiles. I’ll take them in alphabetical order rather than in order of offense.
Donald Gatt elected to Keith and Cullen stood for UKIP before and commenting on free meals for P1 pupils, is reported to have said that those who cannot afford to feed their children should use a contraceptive.
Neil Graham, a Paisley councillor, had his contact details on a leaked BNP database. I downloaded that myself at the time and found a near neighbour on it!
Ian James, for Strathtay, was reported to have praised a speech by UKIP MEP Steven Woolfe and bemoaned the lack of characters like Enoch Powell in the tory Pary leadership campaign.
Most pathetic was Fife teacher Kathleen Leslie (above) who described Nicola Sturgeon as a “drooling hag”, a “wee fish wife” and a “walking horror show”. This is a teacher, a role model for young people, who teaches what…..English? Is she that braw hereself
Ken MacBrayne for Benbecula and North Uist, Roxana Iancu for Glasgow and George McIntyre for midlothian were caught in time and dropped, after anti-Muslim rants by them were allegedly identified.
Finally, David Wilson of Inverclyde was reported to have asked gay people to out themselves during a public meeting during which a donation to an LGBT group had been moved.
Of course, there is also the suggestion in the Herald from the Orange Lodge Grand Master that ‘at least six of its members had been elected as councillors, with dozens more sympathisers also returned in the local elections.’
Before I go you might like to be reminded that the Holyrood contingent are capable of a big foot in the mouth sideways too:
All of this can only go well for the Yes campaign as the new councillors and the soon to be reinforced Tory ranks at Westminster get more and more opportunities to say what they really think.
