Labour Candidate’s Shameful Slur on Tunisia Victims

At midday, a minute’s silence will be held across the country in memory of the 30 Brits murdered in Tunisia.

Just hours before, this is what Labour’s defeated parliamentary candidate in Aylesbury, William Cass, thought appropriate to put on his Facebook page:

“Civillians should not be repatriated as if they were fallen ‘soldiers’. They weren’t. They died on holiday not in service. Sad as it is, all this militarization makes it look as if the country is at war. It will legitimise a response (like bombing Syria). They will be used to justify an imperialist response.”

How anyone in their right mind can think repatriating the victims of a terrorist attack could be seen as “militarization” only he knows.

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
