ROCKET MAN: Cross-Party Condemnation For David Ward

A LibDem spokesperson said:

“We utterly condemn David Ward’s comments, they are not representative of the Liberal Democrats. The party takes this matter very seriously and will treat it as a disciplinary issue.”

A Labour spokesperson said:

“At a time when all sides should be working for a ceasefire and a peaceful settlement, it defies belief that a Liberal Democrat MP should tweet something so vile and irresponsible. Nick Clegg must act immediately to disassociate his party from this comment.”

Tory chairman Grant Shapps said:

“Appalling: No MP should tweet what’s essentially incitement to violence. Mr Ward must withdraw now. Completely irresponsible.”

Last time Ward timed his comments just as MPs were heading off on recess, guaranteeing him a recess-only suspension. He has done the same this time round, so will Nick Clegg step up and give him the punishment he deserves?

      What the above essentially means is that David Ward is the only honest, principled libdem and the rest are arselicking slime who would give their granny to the chosen ones if it would advance their careers.

      Man displays an essential Darwinistic survival instincts (proving himself to be at least partly human) and is condemned by turkeys that would vote for Xmas and even sharpen the axe for the farmer.

      Mad politics from the consistently dumb 3 parties.

      Another huge boost to UKIP, the only party that has a human dimension first.

      Another grateful thanks from all here at UKIP.

        What annoys me, but does not surprise me one bit, is the stench of hypocrisy from MPs who say that he should be sacked as an MP, because supporting terrorism is inconsistent with being an MP… That did not stop hundreds of MPs voting to side with Al Qaeda in Syria did it? It was also government policy to fund, arm and train terrorists in Kosovo. In fact we have funded, supported and armed terrorists all over the place. I guess on that rule, most of the house of commons should resign.

      It was not incitement. That is bogus. I deplore Ward’s politics and his comments but what concerns me more is the growing tendency in this country to censor rather than criticise free speech. Ward’s position is a matter for his electorate who will pass final judgement on him but this fad of calling for apology, resignation or sacking every time someone in the public eye says something that dissents from the groupthink is the real issue.

      Oooo look over there ,no not this way says:

      Photoshopping a nobody’s face in that picture doesn’t work, just wondering why so much deflection to this nobody is being used, I’ve never heard or seen this nobody before and won’t again after he’s been fed to the raging mobs.

      Now if one of the many El Presedenti’s we have in the EU dictatorship had been shown then that picture would have been believable, how long before Gaza becomes an EU member.

        Because they are utterly ignorant of the fact that most people have already twigged that the Izzies are a bunch of monumental hypocrites.

    Is one allowed to say Hamas are deserving everything they get without being labeled a ziloon?

    Is one allowed to criticise the billionaire Hamas leadership (who spend most of the year with Russian hookers in Dubai) for using women and children as human shields without being labeled a ziloon?

      You can say what you like, but it would help if you actually knew anything about the subject instead of just parroting Hasbara like a twat.

      Yes, it would be interesting to see how things would go if ISIS got into Gaza. Hamas is funded by Shia Iran and ISIS has been killing Shias and Christians at three times the rate that the IDF has in Gaza.
      An Egyptian Sunni cleric is claiming Hama’s is in cahoots with the Israelis to kill Palestinians.
      Arafat had a billion in his bank account when he died so terrorism pays just as in Northern Ireland.
      I still do not understand why the left supports such a creed with the attitude to women and gays it shows. Hard of thinking I suppose.

    “will Nick Clegg step up and give him the punishment he deserves?”
    Let some politician unsullied by duplicity, cast the first stone. Or in other words, stay the execution permanently. Instead, leave us have a national debate. In which our leaders are invited to explain how their internal mental ‘understandings’ reference real world situations. If they do truly know what they are talking about, there will be no need for prevarication nor the blanking of that invite. Since they will simply be telling it like it is. But as they repeatedly appear to contradict each other’s musings, if not their own, there seems little hope of any real sense resulting. Except a public realisation, that the delusional are a liability.
