          Progressive multiculturalism should be waffle waffle and interwoven into our DNA. Hard-wiring fairness into our constitution and blah blah blah. Investing in education yadda yadda while opposing Tory cuts in inbalances and consensual majority drone etc.

          I am committed to blah blah blah. Public services and NHS stuff, Tories eat babies waffle drone using the Lib Dems as a human shield while thingy doodah. Lecturing pious indignant whine, more stuff about opposing evil Tories and buzzwords which did well at the focus group last night. Radical progressive majority giblets. Policy initiatives in 21st-century buzzwordism and islamic multicultural Britain without borders and integrationist ideologies. (Pause for applause)

          Everything we think is pure and good so everything everybody else must be evil and blah blah blah. Progressive this, progressive that and multi-cultural radicalism in Britain today while educating and brainwashing via the BBC which the forces of evil would dismantle. Prattling and preaching to the converted, simper whimper drone waffle buzzword and radical idealism stuff. Please let me be PM so I can make Ed Balls chancellor, we really won’t wreck the country again I promise. Go back to your constituencies and prepare an omelette. (Pause for standing ovation)

        Any kind of discrimination based on ethnicity is wrong, even ‘positive’ discrimination and tokenism.

      BTW – if you have red wine at lunch you need a snooze around 4-ish, so don’t knock Ken too much. He’s a great public servant even if he harbours stone-age views and is unable to put a sock in it until spoken to by Big Dave.
