Tom Hunt, such an embarrassment 10:55 - Jan 21 with 5845 viewsSomethingBlue



What's that, five of his last six tweets either attacking Labour or trying to whip up a culture war that I don't imagine for one moment the people of Ipswich are interested in. Slightly more important things going on. Surely people aren't going to stand for his quite obvious attempts to drip poison and foment division in the town he was parachuted into and cares nothing for.

Oh dear. That’s so way off the mark.

There are only a few Corbyn “lovers” on here and even then, from my perspective at least, the love is based on his policies. He seems a decent, hardworking and principled man though, certainly as politicians go.


The real elites all live in ex-council terraces, while the true freedom fighters are the millionaires, stockbrokers and hedge fund managers.

On the other hand, there are certainly a couple of posters on here with jizz splattered posters of Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage fixed to their bedroom wall.

You'd have thought several steep recessions and a global pandemic would have spurred people to take a more collectivist outlook. But no, it's only made people more insular, selfish and agrressive to 'others'. It's really sad to see but it's the reality of British politics right now.

‘Fraid so.

Unfortunately and unbelievably this looks like continuing rightwards with the significant investment in new right wing TV and radio that was already heavily right-leaning. And a quite ridiculous and authoritarian approach to the new BBC topdogs (and Tory lapdogs). The proposal of Paul Dacre as head of Ofcom is a sick joke too.

With politicians across the spectrum playing on identity issues, rather than addressing the real structural and economic issues, this doesn’t bode well.

These ‘new posters’ are multiplying like amoebas at the moment.
I’m not sure they can cope with the single brain cell division though.
Each new incarnation is halving the IQ and we’re not dealing in high numbers to start with.
It’s like a pyramid scheme in stupidity.

Exactly, if they want to run the story perhaps getting a journalist who works at the paper to fact check his words and get an opposing opinion alongside it would help.

Sadly local news is reliant on income and the Tories know full well it benefits them in terms of paid placements of client journalism.

He has blocked me on Twitter for politely wondering whether a culture war nobody actively wants is more important to him than looking after his constituents in a pandemic. That answered the question fairly well.

Only caught the last ten minutes or so but he did say that all teachers could be vaccinated by the end of February and schools back to normal as a result.

He's using the government line which appears to be equating having had one jab with being vaccinated. The other guest (Chris Brunt, not the West Brom player) basically told him that given the need to give a second jab to those who have already had one means he's talking rubbish.

I thought it a decent tweet from yourself - he's only got soundbites and jingoism to fall back on. No talent.

By the look of things, he was on quite a blocking mission over the weekend too and aiming to get his twitter feed much like his sycophantic facebook feed.

He's a disgrace and there are still plenty of ways to call him out, fortunately. I do hope there's some sort of strong grassroots opposition in Ipswich though, because it's going to be needed.

You'd think that with a name like Crusader Ian, he'd be tough skinned and at least up for a sensible debate.

Alas, he's blocked me.

Grimes rushing round deleting his Pro Trump tweets was a joy to behold.

Luckily the internet has a memory..

“Reportedly” doing a lot of heavy lifting in Grimes’ tweet.

Reportedly Grimes would blow a border collie for a fiver ... if someone had reported that.

Crusader Ian seems dumb as a rock, so he probably just flat out believed it rather than posting it knowing full well it was a lie.

I'm not sure which of those is worse though?

Grimes getting upset about the London fireworks was a particular favourite.

He accused Sadiq of putting a political agenda into the display by incorporating the solidarity fist (or Marxism as he prefers).

Anyhoo, his next tweet was to big up the Freedom of Speech Union, who funnily enough use the solidarity fist also. Destroyed.
