Corbyn Aide Grovels For His Job But Fails to Apologise For Abuse

capture11

Earlier today loony Corbyn aide Andrew Fisher deleted his Twitter account in an attempt to hide abusive tweets he had sent Labour MPs. This evening he has apologised for backing a rival candidate against Emily Benn in Croydon South. In a letter to Labour General Secretary Iain McNicol, Fisher laughably claims it was all a big joke:

“I obviously do not and did not support Class War in any way, let alone in an election. I was and am committed to the election of a Labour government and a successful and united Labour Party. I accept that the tweet has been misinterpreted and has caused embarrassment and understandable upset among party members, which I regret. I wish to completely and unreservedly apologise for this tweet.  I have now closed my social media accounts and assure you there will be no repetition of such activity in the future.”

Hardly the most believable defence.

Note that he has not apologised for calling Simon Danczuk “dumbf*ck“, or for saying Rachel Reeves is a “w*nker“, or for calling Sarah Vine a “piece of sh*t“, or for writing that Nigel Farage’s arm was “up” Yvette Cooper. Perhaps he couldn’t find the space in his letter to say sorry for the these ones, or perhaps he is apologising only for the Benn tweet, about which there is an official complaint. Will it be enough to save his job?

Quote of the Day

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
