Bob Piper is Not a Racist, He is a Fool

Sorry, but Bob Piper was just taking the piss with this image. Guido feels he should show some solidarity with the blogging Labour councillor since almost every day some politically incorrect comment gets Guido accused of misogyny, racism, homophobia, anti-semitism et cetera.

It is not a joke Guido would run, because if you are not left-wing anything you say is likely to get you accused by lumpen-lefties of some ism, which is tiresome if you consider yourself to be a metrosexual-liberal. Humour is cruel, offensive and cringemaking at times, that is why we laugh at it.

Piper made his point, he then took it down as the avalanche of condemnation came down on top of him. That means he must in retrospect think it a mistake, it was chuckle-worthy, but foolishly risky for a politician.

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
