Labour Silent Over Councillor’s Holocaust Tweet

Labour MPs are queuing up this morning to voice their outrage at UKIP using a photo of the graves of war dead in their campaign material. For some reason they are however silent about this picture of a concentration camp tweeted by one of own their councillors, Mark Cherry, accompanying a tweet claiming “a vote for Tories in 2015 means more of the same”:

Chris Bryant was one of those itching to have a pop at UKIP over the cemetery poster. Guido has asked him if he condemns his own Labour councillor’s work, so far he has failed to do so. Wonder if this’ll make it onto the News at Ten…

UPDATE: Tory MP Tony Baldry has written to Ed Miliband:

“Councillor Cherry presumably thought this tweet was funny. However, you will see that it very clearly intends to depict Conservative Party policies on the unemployed and disabled as akin to being sent to a Nazi concentration camp. This is not in any way funny. It simply trivialises the horrors of the Holocaust.”

    Quoted in todays Spectator comments

    Last night on Newsnight Nigel Farage claimed that just over the past week 17 councillors had been ARRESTED on various charges, some quite serious.

    OK, so somebody may claim that it wasn’t 17, on their count it was only 15, but the point is that these are all people elected as councillors on the recommendation of the Tory, Labour or LibDem parties who have behaved in ways that have justified their arrest for REAL CRIMES.

    Meanwhile, during this election campaign maybe about the same number of UKIP candidates have been accused not of real crimes, but merely of THOUGHT CRIMES; and those people, fewer than 1% of all the UKIP candidates, have been assiduously drawn to the attention of the public through the mass media while the arrest of Tory, Labour and LibDem councillors has been largely ignored by the same media.

    And we know who has been principally responsible for trawling through the back stories of over 2000 UKIP candidates to dig up whatever dirt they can find, and we know who has been feeding the stories to the media, apparently even with an arrangement with the newspapers that they will be provided with a stream of salacious stories provided they go easy on the Tories.

    As I have repeatedly said, there are still many decent patriotic people who are members of the Tory party, and it may be asked how they will feel about the despicable behaviour of those leading their party; perhaps we will get some indication the next time that party publishes its membership figures.

Not interested in some ‘renegotiation’ stitch up where they pretend to give us some powers back until after a referendum which if we then vote to stay in will be the last chance I have as these referendums seem to come every half-century.

    And the yanks paid for both wars.

    Well…we paid for 1939 and 1940 and up to march 1941. Then we stopped paying.
    And we never paid our First World War loans which were the equal of our Second World War loans.

    And we only paid back our post war loan after fifty years. At 1.5% interest. Which was pretty generous seeing what a lousy credit risk we were.

    Oh yes..and the foreign aid. Britain received the same foreign aid as Germany and France COMBINED. we never paid a penny of that back either. Never had to. It was all free. Billions and billions of dollars.

    Germany built their modern industry with their share. France their modern transportation.

    …I voted “NO” in 1975, and have had to watch in horror as a once great country has slid into a cesspit of lefty utopianism,where free speech,banter and truth have been hijacked ,with the blessing of the Media and broadcasters!..Anyone with an alternative view is shouted down or prefixed with a modern term, be it, “Racism”, as it was yesterday,today it is “Sexism”…
    ..Back in the day when men were men,and women were fragrant,they worked hard in real jobs, producing real things, in the factories and in the fields,often being too tired to concern themselves with these modern expressions of “Racism”, or as today, “Sexism”…What will they find to offend them tomorrow?..Too many are employed in ridiculous non jobs,at taxpayer expense,producing zilch,but taking offence at the drop of a hat!

    More publicity for UKIP; how will we cope with that.

    Most people recognise the war graves as a fact of history and continuing evidence of the sacrifice men and women made for our freedom. If the Labour Party does not recognise that many view the recent transfer of self-government to the EU as an example of dishonouring that sacrifice, then they need to think carefully.

    I could accept it if they woul;d openly argue for an end to the UK but their secret furtive dissolution of our democracy does not give thema ny tright to criticise the selection of images chosen by their opponents at election time.

    Quite how the holocaust equates with the Tories I cannot fathom.

    My grandfather was an Italian POW during WW2. After being captured in North Africa (and escaping and being recaptured) he was shipped back to the UK to work on a farm in Somerset. As far as I’m aware I do t think there were any guard towers put up to guard him.

    Not everyone was kept behind barbed wire. WOPs (and I can say that without being waycist because I am one) were pretty rare in the West Country in the 1940s so I think the authorities were safe in assuming he wouldn’t get far if he tried to escape.

    Question Guido says:

    Guido how many disabled people is it claimed, by those on the left, have died as result of Government welfare reforms. In light of that then a mocked up concentration camp actually makes sense.

    The actual message is different, one is saying these men died for our freedom and we are the only party that represents them. A very poor tactic I might add, very tasteless.

    The other message says this Government is waging a war against the poor and vulnerable and disabled people are being targeted. Hitler as you well know targeted disabled people. The picture is again tasteless but is a logical extension of the argument being put forward by the left.

    When have people in politics cared about taste, using celebrities to win votes. It is no longer about policies but about style and apparently the more brash you are the more style you have.

    Guido do you like trying to control peoples thoughts?

    There is no record of a Dai Jones or David Jones on UKIP’s Members list in Wales where this leaflet has been circulating.

    I’m sure that it suits the likes of Chris ‘underpants Bryant and the like to run with this though.

    Personally I’m just bored now rather than annoyed at the level of the many conjured up attacks on UKIP every single day in the run up to polling day.

    Somewhat of an own goal on the part of labour as the Nazis were socialists. (National Socialist party na-see)

    All of the comments made by UKIP over the course of campaigning are probably taken right out of context. Now apparently it’s racist to be concerned about foreign gypsy gang crime and overwhelmed schools and hospitals. My grandfather lost the use of his legs in the 1st world war, and died an old man with shrapnel still lodged in his spine. My father was in the 2nd world war. They both be horrified at the establishments behaviour towards UKIP and by inference the British public. Their policies don’t cut the mustard any more so they blatantly lie instead and the public swalllows it whole and now falls for Labour, who’ll raise the minimum wage high enough to force ordinary workers out of jobs. The idea of having everybody on the same wage is typical Marxist rubbish.

    The Yanks did not pay for either War. In WW1, we acted as fund-broker and Guarantor for US loans to the Allies (us, our side, the Communists France, Russia,). The Germans also borrowed. After the dust settled, France and Russia defaulted on the loans and we repaid them to the Yanks. WW2 was funded by all the Euro powers to bankruptcy. Lend lease payments continued to be paid by us until 1997. In addition to transfers of wealth, there was the surrender of intellectual assets, proto-computing, nuclear weaponry and power, medicines, jet material technology, geographic assets such as World-wide naval/strategic bases in “exchange” for 50 worthless, unseaworthy WW1 destroyers of which only “Campbeltown” used at sea as suicide weapon to destroy a Dry Dock.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
