Sobering thought

That was an interesting letter from Ged Dempsey in Monday’s edition, May 4, 2015.

In the last sentence he says that UKIP is more Tory than the Tories. The present Tory party is not Tory enough. It is centre right instead of right wing, hence the rise of UKIP.

He extols the virtues of Liverpudlian Len McCluskey (who publicly condemned the removal from office of the Mayor of Tower Hamlets for vote rigging and religious intimidation, describing his dismissal as ‘racist’ and ‘Islamophobic’) and urges us to vote Labour.

He doesn’t mention Mr McCluskey’s fellow left wing activists, the SNP’s Nicola Sturgeon and Alex Salmond, as potential bedfellows in a Labour-led coalition Government. The thought of that trio manipulating Ed Miliband were he to become Prime Minister is a sobering one.

Boris Johnson was right to describe the prospect as ‘Ajockalypse Now’.
