Tory sacrifice to appease the pink vote.


Sacrificed by the Tories



There is no doubt in my mind that the suspension last week of the Conservative candidate for North Ayrshire, Philip Lardner, was only to appease the 'pink vote' elsewhere in the country.

David Cameron acted 'within minutes' to get rid of him after the website Pink News informed Tory central office after Mr Lardner published comments on his own web site, which have now been removed. It goes without saying that Pink News have slightly bent the story to suit their own agenda, (ie, Philip Lardner is a homophobe).

Mr Cameron said yesterday while campaigning that he had taken action against Mr Lardner "within minutes".

He said: "I think people in the gay community know it is easier for people who are Conservative and gay to vote Conservative than at any time before".


Easy for you to act like you did, Mr Cameron. Seeing as Philip Lardner had no hope of overturning a Labour majority of over 11,000. A lamb led to slaughter.

Meanwhile. Mr Lardner is receiving threatening e mails and telephone calls from 'gay' activist groups and has been suspended from his job as a school teacher. But he is determined to fight on. He may have had the support of the Tories withdrawn but he remains on the ballot paper and is still up for election.

He said,

"David Cameron and the rest of the Conservative leadership have been forced into this position by the culture of political correctness which bears no relation to the views of people here or up and down the country. I have been basically thrown out of the Party for views that Annabel Goldie, the Scottish Conservative leader, would have to support as a Church of Scotland Elder. These are views supported by 99 per cent of people in this country"


Indeed, Mr Lardner. But you cannot commit a thought crime nowadays, never mind publish it.

Particularly when your Party leader is an unscrupulous career politician.

The point is that if you are stupid or bigotted or whatever, you should know better than to shout your mouth off about it in public if you are standing for office.

He wasn't sacked for his opinions, he was sacked for being stupid.

YO, The info came from the print edition of the 'Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald' and when I checked the web site the story hadn't been put up.

Dark Lochnagar said...

The man was 100% correct in what he said but as Dioclese says above, he was a stupid twat. But, that shouldn't matter. Gays in North Ayrshire, Rab, fuck off! Although I'm told there was a boy in Saltcoats liked a wee chicken choke to 'ladyboy' pics online!

Thanks for the info , Rab .

I've got to disagree with Dioclese , however . What we need is politicians who don't slither about spouting PC platitudes . We want ones who tell the truth .

99% of the people? I don't think so.

If it were 99% of the people Cameron wouldn't have bothered his arse about it. He is bothered because it involves a large number of people, ergo a large number of votes.

There are all the gay people for a start (reckoned to be between 5 and 10% of the population), then there are the intellectuals, pehaps another 5% of the population, then all the ordinary people who are just intelligent enough to accept that not everone was born the same.... and that maybe THEIR sexual tastes might cause a shiver to go up and down the spine of the average elderly elder of the Church of Scotland.

Yeah a shiver of anticipation....you know what torys are like they need some guilt and shame to go along with their Um? pastimes

RantinRab said...

Stop whinging Niko, you're playing with the bog boys now.

YO, still no sign on the A&S website of the story. To be honest, their website is very poor.

RantinRab said...

Bloody typo, *big* boys.

Tris beat me toit
"views supported by 99 per cent of people", I think it is accepted that the Gay Community comprise a great deal more than 1% of the population.
So yes, he's stupid, or ignorant.
