Cameron: You are WRONG

Mr Cameron.

You are entirely wrong to accept the resignation of Patrick Mercer -

1. He said:

I came across a lot of ethnic minority soldiers who were idle and useless, but who used racism as cover for their misdemeanours.

I remember one guy from St Ann's (Nottingham) who was constantly absent and who had a lot of girlfriends.

When he came back one day I asked him why, and he would say: I was racially abused. And we'd say: No you weren't, you were off with your girlfriends again.

What the hell is wrong with that?! He's stating a opinion based on experience. He did NOT say "all ethnic minorities are lazy", that would be a different matter.


2. He is representing legitimate views held by members of the public. Whether you PC facists like or accept it or not is another matter. Its undemocratic to censure an MP for expressing an opinion or speaking about something he has seen happening.

You should not have accepted or (if this is the case) pushed for his resignation. You now appear weak, easily swayed and have reacted in a way one would expect the Labour party to respond. This does you no favours. You have a LOT of GOOD work to do if you think you're getting my vote. If there were an election tomorrow, it wouldn't go to the Tories or Labour.


Now, how about the snide, cynical opportunism of Labour with this "story"?

Labour MP Sadiq Khan said: I find these comments shocking and most members of the public will find them outrageous.

Mr Khan, you neither speak for me nor represent my view. You are doing what so many others from "ethnic minorities" do - screaming racism when it doesn't exist. To my mind, your comments are far more dangerous than those of Mr Mercer. I would suggest you resign, now.

Adam Ingram -

Racist abuse can have no place in any walk of life, and it is appalling and inappropriate for any politician, never mind a senior Tory MP like Patrick Mercer, to suggest that 'this is just the way it is in the Army'.

Get the facts right, Mercer was talking about meaningless banter between colleagues in which everyone was fair game. Its nothing as insidious as you claim.

Ed Davey

These are staggering remarks from a frontbench spokesman. Comments like this undermine all those in the Army who have gone to great lengths to ensure that every soldier is treated fairly.

Rubbish.

Jack Straw

The comments are breathtaking and dreadful and Mr Mercer's resignation is appropriate.

Wrong. They are neither breathtaking or dreadful. His resignation reflects what a shameful state of affairs we now have to put up within our "democracy".

Shahid Malik

Said the remarks showed the Tories remained the "nasty party".

Nothing nasty in what Mercer said. Again, another tosser using the race card. If the Tories are the 'Nasty Party", what the hell does that make the evil, corrupt, authoritarian, PCist Labour Party?

WHAT MERCER SAID WAS AN OBSERVATION, NOT A GENERALISATION. HE WASN'T WRONG AS HE WASN'T EXPRESSING HIS OPINION AS FACT. THE OPPORTUNISM SHOWN BY LABOUR IS SICKENING AND CAMERON HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE A SPINELESS GIT. NOBODY COMES OUT OF THIS WITH ANY DIGNITY OR CREDIBILITY. YET, THESE MORONS RUN THE COUNTRY.

Welcome to the 21st Century.

Goodbye freedom of speech and the right to hold an opinion.

seems non-white people can't voice their opinions without you accusing them of playing the race card.

Mercer was right to go. He did generalise about black people playing the race card to excuse short comings and his anecdote about some black soldier going off shagging and pretending he was being abused is hugely offensive.

His line about red heads getting it worse is frankly ridiculous. Where is the fascist party calling for reheads to be deported to Denmark or the Celtic Fringes?? There is none.

But several attacking black people, and people because of their religion, and people because they are trade Unionists, or homosexual, or being jewish and so on and so forth.

Have a month or two off blogging before the effects of your vast and very uncool dope consumption have worked their way out of your grey matter.
