David Wright MP: Conservatives are 'scum-sucking pigs who would ruin Britain'

David Wright is a Minister of the Crown. He has not only insulted Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, but feigned cloak-and-dagger infiltration of his tweets and conspiracy.

This post gives absolutely no pleasure at all – none whatsoever. Whatever the political allegiance of a Minister of the Crown, subterfuge deserves to be exposed and the consequences endured.

Mr Wright, a Labour whip, was responding to the latest Conservative advertising campaign targeting people who have never voted Tory before. The MP for Telford tweeted: ‘Because you can put lipstick on a scum-sucking pig, but it's still a scum-sucking pig. And cos they would ruin Britain.’

But after an hour, Mr Wright took down the comments, later issuing an apology. He said: ‘Think you'll find the pig is the Tory Party, not Tory voters. But fair does, apology in the ether.’

He told The Daily Telegraph: ‘Somebody has tinkered with my tweet. I never said “scum sucking”. I said “you can put lipstick on a pig and it is still a pig”. I need to find out how this happened.’

He would save an awful lot of time (and preserve what remains of his dignity) if he just admitted that he typed it with his own fingers. It appears that ‘scum’ is Mr Wright’s favourite word, and he has form in the use of it.

The Conservative Party Chairman Eric Pickles said: “This is exactly the sort of politics that voters are so sick of This sort of language falls way short of what you’d expect of a Minister of the Crown.”

Except, of course, it’s not.

It is precisely the sort of puerile insult-hurling one has come to expect of politicians.

But it is not the ‘scum-sucking pig’ comment which causes Cranmer great offence; it is the assertion that that the Conservatives ‘would ruin Britain’.

Setting aside the question of hyperbole, what does David Wright think Labour have done to the country after 13 years?

Taken us to war on a false premise.
Replaced Cabinet government with a politburo.
Diminished democracy.
Marginalised Parliament.
Taken in three million immigrants.
Saddled us with recession.
Soaring unemployment.
The highest youth unemployment in history.
Eroded our liberties.
Abolished the right to trial by jury.
Raped the Constitution.
Politicised the civil service.
Brought us to the brink of bankruptcy.
Sold off our gold reserves at the bottom of the market.
Raided our pensions.
Subjected us to the Lisbon Treaty.
Failing schools.
Relegation from 7th to 24th in maths and literacy rankings.
Pensioner poverty.
Increased inequality.
Caused fascists to be elected to Brussels.
Increased tax burden.
Given us 5000 new laws.
Created an authoritarian state.
Debased our politics.

And David Wright believes it is the Conservatives who would ruin Britain?

Take another look at Mr Wright’s facial profile:

‘The typical socialist is… a prim little man with a white-collar job, usually a secret teetotaller and often with vegetarian leanings, with a history of Nonconformity behind him, and above all, with a social position which he has no intention of forfeiting.’

That list would make a better campaign poster than airbrushed big brother shots and smiling single-mums.

Your Grace,

if I may ask a question which has been niggling in my mind and brought to the surface by your post.

John Locke:

"it being as impossible for one or a few oppressed Men to disturb the Government, where the Body of the People do not think themselves concerned in it, as for a raving mad Man, or heady Male-content to overturn a well-settled State; the People being as little apt to follow the one, as the other."

At present I feel like the raving mad man. Or at least 70% there.

If the current trends continue then my rulers, my government, will cease to be the same as those that have governed for so long, the legitimacy of a system that governed my forebears would no longer exist. If I see a politburo as illegitimate, especially after its introduction being so anti-democratic, when should my loyalty to the state be transferred to a duty to rebel?
At what point on this journey our government is taking does it become us to call it illegitimate?

Has that already occurred and we are cowards or is there some point in the future which could be considered a step too far, the proverbial straw on the camel?

Do I have to wait for 'Body of the People to think themselves concerned'?

Basically, when a democratic process incrementally turns itself into something unjust or tyrannical, is there an identifiable point at which my duty shifts? If so what is it.

Obviously I would not expect a man of the cloth to advocate violent action, and of course if I am later arrested in a balaclava carrying an RPG I will certainly not blame you.

It would though be most interesting to understand your thoughts on the 'right/duty to revolution' and when you think our current system will be beyond the dignity of good people to countenance.

I sense that above I have merely made the same point equally badly several times. Hopefully you can ascertain what I am wittering on about.

I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments regarding the damage Labour have done to this country and your list is correct. I have a big problem with the alternative though, as 'call me Dave' looks as though he will just be more of the same. More spin, more PC, more immigration, more EU, more inept policing and sentencing, more Quangos and worst of all, it seems, no stomach for a fight.

I can understand the above concern about the lack of fighting spirit but we do have to remember that since the Dianafication of Britain, a lot of voters are touchy-feely tender shoots who recoil from robust debate. We do need to be a little forgiving if a leader decides to keep a light touch on the controls when he is basically heading in a winning direction. A sudden change of campaign direction could open up a new area of debate and that very freshness could invigorate the Labout campaign along the lines of " we said they hadn't changed".

Cameron has turned his party's fortunes around and sometimes you have to cut him some slack. It is his strategy that has brought us so close to ending the Brown nightmare, so if he is happy where he is and doesn't need to radically alter track we have to let him call the shots.

There’s something missing from your list. The socialists, through the federal constitution, have reintroduced the death penalty.

‘So Napoleon, with the help of his dogs, slaughters anyone who is said to be disloyal. "...the tale of confessions and executions went on, until there was a pile of corpses lying before Napoleon's feet and the air was heavy with the smell of blood, which had been unknown there since the expulsion of Jones." To top it off, Napoleon outlaws Beasts of England, which had served as one of the only remaining ties between Animal Farm and old Major.’

He really really didn't.

Gordon Brown and an economic crises turned the Tory fortunes around. Or rather sunk the Labour vote enough to leave Cameron at the highest altitude.

For a while there the desperate Tories thought they needed a Tony Blair. Lehmans changed that, almost overnight. Real Toryism is the elixir required to fix this country. People are desperate to vote for anyone they think is honest, forthright and in possession of some vision and integrity. Instead of taking the opportunity of playing a straight bat, uplifting the standards of politics and creating a genuine mandate, Cameron has gone for PR, triangulating his way from issue to issue.

The result? He may well end up with least fewest votes. Not a great way to get to office.

The socialists destroyed Christian charities because our brothers and sisters dared to read the Bible for guidance; they were then made unemployed; then they could not pay their mortgages and so they became homeless.

They destroyed the pub trade where in villages across the land men would meet after work and smoke since Sir Walter Raleigh’s day – because the very thought of the liberty of private association threatens the only association that they, the socialists, think worth preserving: the socialist power bloc.

They destroyed our children’s education because the very freedom for a man to think for himself, defended since time immemorial, threatened the tenets of their ideology. For it is that ideology, socialism, that makes their acts seem kind not only in their eyes but in the eyes of those who are not yet its victims.

They taught our youngsters, sexual license and issued them with condoms. And when they became pregnant they made an appointment at the abortion clinic so that the child could be flushed into the sewer thus severing the connection between the present generation, the dead and those who are yet to be born. They have nothing to offer but death as a solution.

And when men saluted their country’s national flag and dared to conceive of ourselves as a national community – they sold us into the slavery of the fascist European Union – an anti-democratic imperial power – to which resistance is legitimate - for it is illegitimate.

Unfortunately I wouldn't hold out much hope for any other party to do better, the government work for themselves these days rather than working for the people who employ them.

And Mr Singh, strange you would pick a quote like that from The Road to Wigan Pier. I personally like the following:

"As with the Christian religion, the worst advertisement for Socialism is its adherents."

-George Orwell: The Road to Wigan Pier

Or of course there is this one that couldn't be more apt following a discussion with yourself:

"What can you do against the lunatic who is more intelligent than yourself, who gives your arguments a fair hearing and then simply persists in his lunacy?"

The thought of how it interferes in other lives however does create a feeling of dread in me, but that is the same feeling of any interference from an unwanted angle.

You do know that Orwell was generally regarded to be an atheist don't you? And don't bother mentioning his burial wishes on his death bed.

You issue an explosive statement: ‘And caused fascists to be elected to Brussels.’ But how did they do that?

They abandoned first the concept of the nation-state (the national community and therefore the national interest)) in exchange for the supra-national power the European Union.

And they abandoned the British working-class even though the father of the Peoples promised ‘British jobs for British workers’ – which he could not deliver because of superior federal employment law.

5. enriched themselves at the expense of anyone who does anything worthwhile

Not at all. I believe you have expressed yourself very well indeed.

There is no such point at which there will ever been any form of revolution. Revolutions have to be organized, and therefore also financed.
The same people who have always done both are the people who have always controlled your material life. They have never been acts of the people, or indeed originated from the people.

The only thing that could possibly happen is the public to finally understand that it really is every man and women for themselves. In fact things are, as they have always been.

We are individuals enduring a life or death struggle for our very existence, against the dark forces of establishment conspired repression. In a sense it is a battle we could only ever end up losing. However as it was ALWAYS so, we have in fact been winning, and are still winning simply because we self-apparently still materially, and will always spiritually exist.

Anyway, this man is a disgrace and hopefully the people will vote this man out of parliament at the next election. Having said that, twitter does appear to be a place for 'witty' one liners and in which all sides end up debating as if in a drunken beer keller.

Labour should loose this election. But I am uncertain as to whether I will vote Conservative, as I have loyally done so in the past. As one other poster said (was it the chap who looks like he is eating a whole lamb shank? Old something?) Cameron has tried to 'triangulate' too often and is looking like he believes in nothing but winning power. Ergo the EU constitution "we will not let matter rest there", "cast iron" etc.

Yet we are assured that up to 30% of electors will continue to give these scoundrels their vote. Truly is it said: You can fool some of the people all of the time, and they're the ones you target.

Charles Darwin cause of social decline in Britain? Get a grip.

It probably has a lot more to do with the media culture that now grips poverty stricken areas of society. Where once people would strive to work and improve there lives and better their situations for their offspring. We now have families like the Chawners thinking their way out is by the hand of Simon Cowell. Where people want to be famous but can't give any reason why they should. And everyone else just sits on their fat arses lapping it up on the TV every night becuase if they can watch some reprobate individuals on TV with their crappy life it makes the watcher feel that bit better about their own sad lazy existence.

Nope I think Charles Darwin has little to do with this situation, in fact I would wager the parasites that drag society down to the gutter don't even know who Charles Darwing is.

Racism and Darwinism

The greatest influence in the sudden development of racism in the 19th century Europe was the replacement of the Christian belief that "God created all people equal" by "Darwinism". By suggesting that man had evolved from more primitive creatures, and that some races had evolved further than others, it provided racism with a scientific mask.

Hitler was a firm believer and preacher of evolution. Whatever the deeper, profound, complexities of his psychosis, it is certain that the concept of struggle was important because … his book, Mein Kampf, clearly set forth a number of evolutionary ideas, particularly those emphasizing struggle, survival of the fittest and the extermination of the weak to produce a better society.

Marxism Whenever Marxism is mentioned, what is particularly striking is how little most Britons know about it. Of course, many will mention that it is "something to do with communism isn't it?", without realising the anti-human nature of the philosophy Karl Marx and his fellow socialist Friedrich Engels preached. Even more striking is how unaware most people are about the serious consequences imposed upon humanity because of the ideas and teachings of Marx and Engels.

Everything currently occurring in Great Britain and indeed, Western civilisation is firmly rooted in Marxist philosophy.

As Marx hated both Capitalism and Religion, it logically follows that the project to establish the stateless, classless society requires people who do not believe in God and who reject Capitalism. Now we see for the first time the dangerous, anti-human ground Marx and his socialist philosophy entered, totalitarian ground to impose by any means necessary the classless, stateless socialist Utopia.

All ruled of course by an elite socialist party who brainwash the masses to accept the socialist doctrine. Today, that is exactly what is being performed by NuLab in Great Britain and by the entire European Union.
