Imagine If Bryant Were Still a Tory

Chris Bryant caused a stir on Newsnight last night with a clumsy comment on immigration. Perhaps he was harking back to his days as a member of the Oxford University Conservative Association:

“It would be nice sometimes when you go into a British hotel if the receptionist was British.”

One might have thought Bryant would choose his words more carefully given the vigour with which he jumps on “offensive” comments from his opponents, such as  “pantomime dames”. Imagine the enormous hoo-haa Labour would be kicking up right now if Bryant were still a Tory…

        My original comment ended “(if he ever was one)” but I thought for a moment and then edited it. Deleting those words caused a small delay and thus allowed you to get the coveted #1 slot.

        He might have been a Conservative once upon a time, but his admiration for Tony Blair filled his head with airy-fairy happy-clappy claptrap, forcing the Conservativeness out of it, leaving us with the trainwreck of a PM we see today.

    I thank Labour for bringing back that old colonial experience where white people can arse around or take early retirement while foreign people have to work.
    Instead of picking veg in the fields,my daughter is at Rustthorpe University studying her navel and my son, the great piss artist and thinker, thought about getting a job but decided fuck it.
    Myself I retired at 50 on full pension after 15 years working for the council.

    Proof, if ever any were needed, that Labour people are congenitally stupid. A Labour councillor said the Government is wasting money tackling female genital mutilation because it is “yesterday’s” problem.

    She was born in Somalia and underwent FGM herself:

      She underwent FGM? That’s an interesting fact. Does she have it on her CV? Or on her passport (the bit that says “Any distinguishing features? – Yes, my lady bits have been hacked off.”)?

      Maybe she uses it to break the ice at parties. “Hi, my name’s Rakhia, this is a nice party, isn’t it? Is any of your genitalia missing like bits of mine are?”

      In 1415, St George’s Day was declared a national feast day and holiday in England. The traditional celebrations diminished in popularity after the Union with Scotland in 1707. The traditional wearing of the red rose was hi-jacked more recently by the Labour party.

      So, the Scots and Labour impacting English identity again…

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
