Tories and Guardian v UKIP, Staggers and a Delingpole

It takes something pretty special to unite the Tories and the Guardian, and then have UKIP and the New Statesman team up against them. UKIP candidate Dick Delingpole’s photoshop of himself with Hitler and subsequent Telegraph blog “confessing” to a non-existent Nazi past were so obviously a joke surely no one could fall for it. Step forward Simon Geraghty, Delingpole’s Tory opponent in Worcester, to bore us all with a cringeworthy sense of humour bypass:

“I find it absolutely sickening and abhorrent. I think the vast majority of British people will find this shocking – it’s not funny at all, it’s dreadful and I can’t believe he’s done it.”

The Guardian‘s Nick Watt even managed to bring himself to write the non-story up in full high-minded glory, apparently using the headline “Ukip in fresh Nazi row after candidate Photoshops Hitler image” without irony. You knew the whole thing had reached farcical proportions when the Staggers came out in defence of Delingpole this afternoon. CCHQ, a Tory candidate and the Guardian versus UKIP, the Staggers and a Delingpole – roll on Friday.

    Oh, dearie me, Dickie D just doesn’t get it. You are not allowed to self-invoke Godwin in any jocular fashion; it just isn’t done. It must be left to those whose moral dudgeon cannot be questioned. Only those who see it as the neutron bomb of political debate should be allowed to use it. Otherwise, should anyone else show it for the damp squib it really is, “naked Emperors” (and the like) might spring to mind.

    Too right voting UKIP this week is one of the few chances to piss off a few of these lying useless c_nts that fill the County Councils across the land and to give ‘More Puffy Luv?’ Dave a scare that might make the pan cake run. I’m afraid I don’t qualify for any ‘benefits’, I’ve never been out of work longer than 3 weeks and don’t have any kids, nor do I have a bank loan, credit card or mortgage. Yes you’ve guessed it I’m one of those poor c_nts that every single party thinks it has a right to our money. So I’ll be voting UKIP it might mean getting my bin emptied will be cheaper which would be more than any other party has ever done for me in the last 40 years.

    If the political class think that this is of any interest (other than amusement) to any normal person, then I would suggest that they ought all find other things to do.

    If Mr Geraghty in Worcester can’t believe that Mr D has done it, why would he find it sickening?

    I'm Bonkers and Voting UKIP says:

    Very true, in many ways Westminster politics of the next 20 years or so will be determined by how the Scots vote in 2014, if they vote to go then Labour is over as a national Party it will become a protest party and a local corrupt fiefdom for certain English regions. The Tories if the grow one and get rid the Dave his dreadful mob could form the natural party of English government. We shall see. If all 3 go to the polls as is in 2015 then I’m afraid it will be more coalition till 2020 or when the riots start because we can’t borrow any more and printing the stuff has created hyper inflation.

    I too will be voting UKIP but will return to the tories at the general election because I am scared shxxless that the slimy toe rags turfed out last time and still sitting in opposition might just win by default and finish off what Brown started.
    My main reason for voting UKIP in the locals is that in this town it normally votes Labour and Farage appears to be saying what a lot of the working classes are thinking.
    Farage will also get my vote in the euro elections because he’s not afraid to tell the faceless, unaccountable beaurocrats currently running europe without a mandate from anyone, what an obnoxious, anti democratic shower they really are.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
