Tory hasbeens in happier times. Enter our caption competition and win something in pink silk
No doubt you’ve all been reading about Tory Councillor David Burgess Joyce who has been all over the mainstream media for all the wrong reasons. His insulting and imbecilic tweets comparing black Labour MP David Lammy to a member of white supremacist murderers the Ku Klux Klan was low even for a Wirral councillor but let’s face it, not a new low . As we know their standards are lower than a rattlesnake’s belly and ignorant racists are two a penny at Wallasey Town Hall (yes, we’re talking about you Cllr George Davies…)
Needless to say we had BJ – as we like to call him- nailed as a Grade A arsehole in our A Fair Cop post in 2016 :
Her Ladyship and I have always asked each other who on earth was that preening, self -regarding pompous windbag who with faux sincerity talked ever -so – slowly – and – in – a -way – that – made – you – think – that -what -he-was -saying – was – ever – so- important – and – profound – when -really – it -was – the – usual – mix -of -blather – and – BS.
And now we know – Mr B-J !!!
BJ has now been suspended by the local Tory Party – fortunately for him not in a manner approved by the Klu Klux Klan. Might we suggest that he should now spend his time arranging his collection of lurid silk pocket handkerchiefs and reflecting on the fact that he is one of many Wirral councillors who should never, EVER have been in a position to make decisions about other peoples lives…
Meanwhile here’s a history lesson in song for BJ :
Birkenhead MP Frank Field , having moved an amendment to the European Union (Withdrawal ) Bill earlier this week must be grateful that the local TV media chose a clip of Wirral South MP Alison McGovern’s contribution to the House of Commons Brexit debate for their news bulletin rather than his latest waspish display of self-aggrandizing disrespect for others. Therefore we’d particularly like to thank Old Queen TV for posting the above footage.
Field’s innocuous amendment read : ” The UK ceases to belong to the European Union on 30 March 2019″ andwe can say one thing about Frankenfield and that he united the House during the debate – united that is in their distaste of his sly jibes.
The most spectacular putdown was of fellow Labour MP Hilary Benn which drew gasps from benches on both sides of the House. Sitting behind Frankenfield David Lammy looks simply aghast……and who wouldn’t be as Field snipes at Benn : ” I’ve always bought my houses, I’ve never inherited them……” . On being corrected by Bennhe apologised and withdrew the comment. However the snooty, sarky tone of his statement , part Lady Bracknell/part Lily Savage, continued unabated.
The thing is with Frankenfield is that locally he is so used to saying what he likes to who he likes – and being gifted a platform to do it – that it comes as a bit of a surprise when someone dares to challenge him on the facts.
However there were several other comments Frankenfield made during his speech which led to us sit here scratching our heads with our mouths agape. The full transcript of the debate can read here
We’re confused as to what Frankenfield is trying to say in these statements . However it should be noted that overall 51.7% of the voters of Wirral voted to remain in the EU Referendum , whilst his own constituency voted 51.7% to leave .
