WATCH: Caller Calls Clegg a Suit Wearing Lunatic

The Deputy Prime Minister fielded a call on knife crime from a Paul Whitehouse impressionist on LBC this morning:

“How are elderly people meant to sleep in their beds when they’ve got lunatics in suits like him who are looking after this country? You created these momsters out there, you like it. You’ve got all your lawyer mates all earning money out of it, the system. Helping all the criminals, Clegg.”

Sobering stuff.

      Nick is of course correct. It is sheer madness and totalitarian to imprison everyone who carries a knife. Those who want to stab yoofs must be outnumbered thousands to one by those who carry a pen knife to cut string, peel fruit, prune wood etc.

        We all know what is meant by carrying a knife. If you are not sure then perhaps the knife could be shown to the court and it could be judged wether it is acceptable or if it is purely offensive. Also where you are when caught with it, I find it hard to understand why you would have a six inch sheath knife in a nightclub.

      I think pollsters are perhaps seeing too much in past results and applying them to comfortable predictions for 2015. Two years ago UKIP was only seen as a small irrelevant political party inhabited by such a small number of the electorate that the media and other parties could insult and ridicule with impunity. However since the last GE when UKIP polled only 3% there has been and is a fast growing resentment about immigration and our creeping loss of sovereignty to Brussels. This resentment has been transformed after Farage took apart Clegg’s arguments in the TV debates. The general public now know beyond any doubt and regardless of Cameron’s ultra spin that a) he cannot control our borders and b) he cannot deny benefits to anyone from the EU or for that matter anywhere else. They also realise that this unprecedented and uncontrollable rise in immigration has overloaded our schools social housing and NHS not to mention the fierce competition in the jobs market. Cameron has claimed in the last couple of days to have cut immigration and it is this propensity he has to assume that the electorate are stupid that turns many against his party. The Internet now is a means whereby the truth is available as never before and the political elite are exposed. Yes there may well be some who return to their old allegiances in 2015 but there is nothing to even remotely suggest that the growth of UKIP support will slow. No one even UKIP themselves were prepared for their spectacular rise in popularity or even dreamed of the possibility they could win a national election. The disregard of UKIP’s influence in the 2015 GE is I fear based more on hope than reality. If the orchestrated smear campaign is failing (which it undoubtedly is) then one could ask what would be the catalyst to turn voters against UKIP and expect them to vote for the politics they are abandoning today en-mass?
      Interesting time ahead I think.

        Those who acquired the economic means to leave the cities on their own merits would be a mix of violent folk and smart folk: Violence and intellect being the two key qualities by which people acquire wealth.

        The effect of government through social engineering, artificially advantaging the lower ranks would enable people who rely more on violence to leave and relocate to the towns and villages.

        However, violent crime overall has dropped since leaded petrol was discontinued (the effects on IQ biasing people towards using violence as a strategy). Now people’s perception is distorted more by the media lens and outright propaganda.

        The numbers need to be looked at.

        Classifying anyone who is found in possession of a knife, which itself does not imply any intention of criminal wrong doing, or intent, is stupid.

        All of this b/s is easily fixed by allowing people to acquire and hold firearms – in particular allowing law abiding folk to apply for concealed carry permits. That would cut knife crime figures very quickly, not that they are a massive problem.

    Clegg will soon change his mind when his three young sons are teenagers and cannot go out for the evening without the fear of being mugged at knife point.

    Every parent of teenage boys is only too aware of this.

    Tom Utley wrote an excellent piece on this subject several years ago in the Telegraph.

    Yes it did sound like a caller from’Down the Line’ didn’t it?

    If it is known that you will go to jail for carrying a knife, second offence, just don’t carry a knife, of any kind.Pretty obvious.

    Why don’t we just adopt Saudi Arabian justice! Then the state can be the ‘knife-wielding lunatic’ instead! Off with their Head! ATM, the only ‘Knife-wielding lunatics’ we have in the UK are working in Halal Slaughter Houses..

    Clegg is half-Dutch and quarter Russian — which is why he has that broad stupid face — and only a quarter English. He is married to a Spanish Roman Catholic harpy.

    The pair of them should move to Brussels, where they belong.

    When I was at school we where often told that “anyone heard talking during the lesson would receive one stroke of the cane”. There where no ifs, no buts, no second chances, therefore, unless you wanted the cane you didn’t speak.

    In Clegg’s classroom you would probably be given 25 chances not to speak, then be told that you are a very naughty boy and please do not do it again.

    Alas, in this progressive brave new world, the teacher who carried out the caning at my school would now be seen as the aggressive bully and the pupil who couldn’t keep his mouth shut the victim.

    Welcome to the world of the gobby kid.
