Some rape is okay people...

...or so it would seem. It would seem that following Judy Finnigan's controversial comments about footballer Ched Evans on Loose Women, Her daughter, Chloe has received a ton of abuse on Twitter ( sorry having linking problems today for some reason). Within that it's reported that a number of them are hoping that she gets raped. Pretty vile sentiments I'm sure you would agree.

Strange that isn't it. There's outrage at Finnigan was for having a conversation about it. I think she was  daft bringing it up, because the subject is a vile one and provokes strong feelings and no matter how well intentioned. I suspect there's nobody in the world with the verbal dexterity to speak about this without provoking understandable fury.

But how odd it is that from that angry crowd, for whom there is total intolerance (a sentiment I would share), their response is to wish the very thing they so abhor on someone. Is their argument that it's okay in such cases if they give it the nod?

What was it former radical left winger David Horrowitz said? Inside every liberal is a tyrant screaming to get out.

What's new pussycat

So after the much predicted win by UKIP in Clacton, Dave feels it's wise to warn those turning to UKIP of the Consequences at the 2015 election. The wise old sage predicts a vote for UKIP will result in a Labour govt.

I love that implicit in that warning is how it will be our fault. Typical modern politician. At no point does Dave seem to wonder, what precisely it is that has caused this result. I mean what could possibly have happened to the electorate of Clacton or anywhere else for that matter that could cause Tories to plump for someone else? Was it just some sudden attack of the vapours resulting in delirium. This ones going to a tough one to crack isn't it.

Well no, not really. Maybe as opposed to pointing his waggy finger at the public he should look back at his own duplicitous behaviour, promising one thing and doing another.

Maybe, just maybe, the electorate are not worried about his vote UKIP get Labour threat. After all that's precisely the same as they got in 2010 when they voted Tory.
