Lee Anderson has been given Deputy Chair of Tory party and as you can see he may well not be your kind of guy?
As Kelvin MacKenzie wrote: “In favour of the death penalty. Criticised nurses for claiming to use food banks. Boycotted England for taking the knee. Believes nuisance tenants should have to live in tents. Excellent views of the new Tory Deputy Chairman Lee Anderson, the Red Wall MP. Make him the chairman!”
He also shared a video of Lee and his views and wrote: “Pro-hanging, anti taking the knee. I salute the new Conservative Deputy Chairman Lee Anderson. Lefties will hate him, he’s a winner.”
This interview on local BBC radio was pretty shocking as well.
Of course it isn’t just Lee Anderson in the party who has pretty awful regressive views.
So perhaps I am bullying him…
On the bullying note Dominic Raab is being accused by even more people of very dodgy behaviour.
Or Nadhim Zahawi and his tax affairs?
Nadine Dorries is standing down as an MP but hasn’t exactly covered herself in gold.
Unlike Boris Johnson, who literally did with his wall paper.
Then there is Liz Truss…
I could go on and list the other Tories up to mischief and mired in scandal.
So it leaves one to think why are so many Tories like this, and the closest explanation i’ve ever seen is doing the rounds again.
Charlie Brooker wrote it a few years ago and does it still chime with you today?
He wrote:”The Conservative party is an eternally irritating force for wrong that appeals exclusively to bigots, toffs, money-minded machine men, faded entertainers and selfish, grasping simpletons who were born with some essential part of their soul missing.”
