Tebbit: Cam too busy with African homosexuals

Norman Tebbit has some advice for David Cameron today.

In a Telegraph blog-post titled: Still no sign of a working majority for Cameron. Time is running out, he says that Cameron must move rightwards.

Having been led up the garden path on to the messy bog of the middle ground by Michael Ashcroft’s strategy for the critical seats, David Cameron now has to put some greater distance between himself and the Prime Minister. If he does not, the voters will reluctantly return the more experienced, battle-hardened man to implement consensus policies.

The comparisons between the merits of the wives of the Party leaders are not merely irrelevant. They are turning voters away from the polling booths. If there are not greater differences between the two men and their parties than that, the electors will leave well (or ill) alone and leave Brown in office.

Fair point. I’ve also been saying for ages that the Labour party needs to create more distance between themselves and the Conservatives if they are going to win back disaffected leftie voters.

But Tebbit then goes on to say:

David Cameron has the brains to turn the tables and come back to win. But he has to inspire the electors to believe he would make a difference not over the trivialities of dress sense or political asylum for African homosexuals, but the management of the debt and spending crisis which threatens to overwhelm the country, our relationship with the EU, the crisis of unintegrated foreign communities, and the regulatory nightmares built on human rights and health safety legislation implemented by politically correct officials.

Tories never change do they…

Tebbit was one of many on the right of the party that today launched a stop Cameron at all cost campaign.

Oh, for chrissakes. Considering how high profile Tebbit can be, this is pretty bad.

It’s time some of the more sickening Conservative attitudes were brought to wider public attention.

Joel – in fairness I can’t imagine African refugees are high on most peoples’ priorities, Tories or not.

Richard, an issue may not be the priority of some, but that doesn’t make it a trivial matter. Where SamCam gets her dresses is trivial, the proposal to kill individuals for their sexuality is not. Indeed the way the UK deals with asylum and immigration is a very important matter to a lot of people.

Big difference between “homosexuals” and “homos”.

7. Chris Davies

SS OberSturmbannFuehrer der Graf von Tebbitz fucks up again.

Is he some relation to Prince Philip?

As a non-African homosexual I think he might have phrased things better, but his substantive point is right, isn’t it?

And he didn’t write “homos” did he?

Seriously? You think Labour can win back “disaffected” voters by making different election promises? You mean like all the ones they’ve broken with impunity thus far? How stupid do you think we are..?

And are you forgetting the Iraq war? Are you seriously suggesting that anyone should vote for this party ever again? If we did that, it would make a nonsense of all those anti-war marches, and we really would end up with a government we deserve.

Voting Labour, endorsing this vicious deceitful bunch of self-serving incompetents really isn’t a viable option anymore for anyone with any kind of integrity or conscience.

It is interesting that the “ultras” (whether of the right or the left) are always so convinced that all the country needs is a decisive swing to their chosen extreme. The truth is that most of the people, however exercised they are about particular issues, are suspicious of BOTH extremes.

I say bring it on: the more deluded, Tebbit loving, Tories who vote for UKIP, and the BNP, the Monster Raving Loonie Party (much of a muchness really), or the more disaffected lefties who vote Socialist, Respect (there’s an unintentionally ironic party name if ever we saw one!), Green etc, the more likely a hung Parliament is.

The sad thing is that Tebbit actually believes that a shift to the right would make them more electable, rather than less!

@5 sounds to me like the word trivial was used in connection with dress sense. Hence the ‘or’ rather than ‘and’.

Tories never change do they…

Given that this story is about the Tories being criticised by Norman Tebbit for caring too much about the human rights of African homosexuals then clearly, by definition, the Tories have changed haven’t they?

Honestly, it’s like me citing a criticism by Derek Hatton that Labour should tax high earners at 98% again and using it to prove that ‘chuh, Labour never changes eh?’

Good holiday?

@cjcjc

It is amazing how intolerant gay Conservatives are of any other oppressed group, such as African gays, black people, Muslims, and so on. You’d think the fact they are in an organisation surrounded by those that hate them, would encourage them to have some solidarity with other oppressed groups.

@Tim J

I think Cameron’s floundering all over that interview with Martin Popplewell proves that the Tories’ “change” is not even skin-deep.

Tebbit is the political soul of the Tory party – don’t help the poor, it makes them lazy etc – so the fact that he is still a rabid homophone reflects very badly on the party. Why haven’t you lot denounced him?

the fact that he is still a rabid homophone reflects very badly on the party. Why haven’t you lot denounced him?

He does sound rather like himself doesn’t he? Although there’s nothing homophobic in the quoted piece (asylum policy is indeed much less important than the economy etc), it’s probably fair enough to decribe Tebbit as being unenlightened on modern attitudes towards homosexuality – it’s been a constant theme of his criticism of Cameron and the party recently, which led Cameron to threaten to remove the Tory whip from him.

As to why we haven’t ‘denounced’ him – well short of holding a public meeting where Tebbit is forced to acknowledge his crimes against the party (and that’s more a thing that the left do really) what do you suggest that Cameron does? State that he disagrees with Tebbit (which he has repeatedly)? Remove the Tory whip? What for – disagreeing with the leader? Not very liberal, that.

well short of holding a public meeting where Tebbit is forced to acknowledge his crimes against the party

Well – Tim Montgomerie seems to have denounced him. Not for those words, mind you, but for not being disciplined enough just before the election. Gotta love those priorities.

Holiday was great, thanks :)

“Given that this story is about the Tories being criticised by Norman Tebbit for caring too much about the human rights of African homosexuals then clearly, by definition, the Tories have changed haven’t they?

Honestly, it’s like me citing a criticism by Derek Hatton that Labour should tax high earners at 98% again and using it to prove that ‘chuh, Labour never changes eh?’”

But don’t you think that Tebbit’s attitudes reflect many more of the Tory rank and file than Hatton’s do the Labour rank and file?

Cameron has made a real effort to make the Tories less shrill and extreme, but you don’t have to scratch too far beneath the surface to find both MPs and party members who would probably find even Tebbit’s extreme views too left wing.

If he does manage to get a working majority at this election he has a real chance to reform the Tory party. A lot of the old style MPs seem to be retiring and the new batch (if elected) are a far more diverse bunch, (very interesting article in the Guardian magazine picking a few of them out a week or so ago). Start to build a more mainstream membership on the back of this and he might actually be able to make a real break with the old Tory obsessions. (That is of course if he wants to and he isn’t just a wolf in sheep’s clothing waiting to get power before laughing “Bwah hah hah” and destroying the public sector in one fell swoop, I might be wrong on this point :-)).

If he doesn’t win a majority and the Tories don’t form part of a government then I’m sure that they will swing back wildly towards the right, Cameron and Osbourne will be culled, and people like Tebbit, Liam Fox and their ilk will be our opposition as they lead the Tories further and further into the right wing wilderness.

I should point out that I am not a Tory troll, (I’m actually a Lib Dem party member, was leafleting yesterday in fact). I’m just trying to be objective about Cameron and the Tory party in general.

asylum policy is indeed much less important than the economy etc)

is that why your lot spend so much time attacking immigrants, asylum seekers and other assorted foreigners, when immigrants actually prop our economy up?

And “threaten” to withdraw the whip – why not actually do that? He should’ve been kicked out when he advocated voting for UKIP. But Cameron is weak, and beholden to his party’s far-right Europe-hating, racist, homophobic loons.

Meanwhile, Tories and their chums on the right have their knives out for Dave:

http://conservativehome.blogs.com/thetorydiary/2010/03/blue-on-blue.html

You chancers realise that this actually makes it less likely for Cameron to win a working majority? Good luck with that.

Well – Tim Montgomerie seems to have denounced him. Not for those words, mind you, but for not being disciplined enough just before the election.

I’m not actually sure that there’s anything especially objectionable in the words above. Equally, however, I am pretty sure that you could find quite a lot of objectionable things that Tebbit has said. I remember during the 2001 GE night coverage Tebbit was asked whether Portillo had ‘cold feet’ over running for the leadership. Tebbit’s response?

‘I don’t know, I’ve never slept with him.’

If he doesn’t win a majority and the Tories don’t form part of a government then I’m sure that they will swing back wildly towards the right, Cameron and Osbourne will be culled, and people like Tebbit, Liam Fox and their ilk will be our opposition as they lead the Tories further and further into the right wing wilderness.

Maybe – although Tebbit is history, he’s far too old to want to return to frontline politics. It’s as certain as anything in politics can be that Cameron will win a lot of seats at the election (I’m still confident that he’ll get a workable majority). If Labour scrape past as largest party (which would be an amazing turnaround given that they’re really struggling to poll much more than 31%) then I’m sure that there would be a leadership challenge, and Liam Fox would be the most likely person to do that.

I’m fairly sure that Cameron wouldn’t resign (unless the result was truly awful, absolute Labour majority territory), and also that he would win a challenge. If the Tories don’t win, there is likely to be a second election very shortly afterwards. Wouldn’t make sense to ditch your leader then…

22. DisgustedOfTunbridgeWells

Honestly, it’s like me citing a criticism by Derek Hatton that Labour should tax high earners at 98% again and using it to prove that ‘chuh, Labour never changes eh?’

The mention of Derek Hatton made me laugh uncontrollably, for some reason.

Meanwhile, Tories and their chums on the right have their knives out for Dave…

Well, the critics listed there are Douglas Murray (lovely chap, but not a Tory), Gerald Warner (barking loon, and not a Tory), Simon Heffer (barking loon, and not a Tory), Peter Hitchens (barking loon and not a Tory) and Michael Deacon (who?).

There’s a sort of pattern emerging – and it has to be said, it’s not really consistent with Sunny’s ‘the Tories haven’t changed’ narrative above.

They might not be members, Tim J, but they are all cut from the same cloth of “poor people are poor because they are lazy scum”.

24 – and therefore their opposition to the Conservatives just goes to show how much they’ve changed right?

26. Mike Killingworth

First and most important, welcome back Sunny. Glad you enjoyed your trip.

There is one simple answer to Tebbitt and those Tory bloggers who want their Party to move rightwards. It didn’t work in 2005 under Michael Howard so what’s changed to make it work to-day?

They might argue that among the 15-20% “other” vote being recorded in the polls there is a substantial right-wing element (in England, anyway). But the Tories have never had a “never knowingly out-righted” approach to politics – except perhaps under Thatcher. And as time goes by it begins to look as if her true legacy is the breakdown of the two-party system which served the Conservative Party so well.

However, if the Tories do lose in May (which I still can’t envisage, to be honest) I would not be in the least surprised if there weren’t some high-profile defections not only to UKIP but also to the BNP.

Tebbit criticises Tories for changing.
Sunny concludes Tories haven’t changed.

Sunny,

If you put something in quotes in the title, please ensure it is actually something that was said. And it would help if paraphrasing to paraphrase the whole sentence. An accurate (but less sensational) title would be Tebbit says Cameron needs to concentrate on important issues and not homosexual African refugees, or something similiar.

Why is acceptable for you to twist and distort facts and figures, but not Rod Liddle (and no, I do not defend him – his behaviour is unacceptable)?

Rather like cjcjcjcjcj, surely no one take Tebbit seriously do they?

watchman: I’m not distorting anything – it’s a headline as any newspaper would use. The full quote isn’t being hidden from anyone right?

Mike – thanks! I see you’re now less certain of a Tory landslide ;-)

Tim – all those ppl may not be Tories, but they are conservatives.

I’m not distorting anything – it’s a headline as any newspaper would use. The full quote isn’t being hidden from anyone right?

Well why dont you just go the whole hog and write a Carole ‘shudder’ Malone esque article about immigration.

I would have throught people came here as they were tired of ‘any old newspapers’ and wanted something more refreshing.

Hahaha Daniel – pot calling kettle there I think

Dave – tell me, what would your headline be, in two lines?

cjcjcjjc:

Don’t be racist…

watchman: I’m not distorting anything –

Your headline may lead people to believe that Tebbit used the word “homo”, which is usually a pejorative and something that people disapprove of others using. He didn’t.

You probably know this and did it deliberately in order to make Tebbit look worse.

it’s a headline as any newspaper would use.

Do you hold yourself to a higher or the same standard than “any newspaper”? I doubt a quality paper would do that, anyway.

Tim – all those ppl may not be Tories, but they are conservatives.

Well, firstly that doesn’t match ‘Tories never change’ and secondly Douglas Murray is lots of things, but conservative is not one of them. Gerald Warner is just a barking loon, and thus unclassifiable.

Dave – tell me, what would your headline be, in two lines?

The point is that quotation marks are usually just that – quotations. If Tebbit had actually said that Cameron was too busy saving African homos to be a good Prime Minister, that would be quite a substantial story. He didn’t. He didn’t use the word ‘homos’ at all – that was purely your invention.

Dave – tell me, what would your headline be, in two lines?

To be honest I think I would have chosen something else to write about, seems a bit of a non story to me, which is probably why you needed the headline.

“Fair point. I’ve also been saying for ages that the Labour party needs to create more distance between themselves and the Conservatives if they are going to win back disaffected leftie voters.”

Those voters who swung to Labour in 97 and so on never were left wingers. New Labour never was left wing; it was all things to all people. It made left wing noises to appease the old school types and unions, but pro business, right wing soundbites to win over the masses in the middle. New Labour never was about ideology, or policy. It was directionless. It was a strategy for getting elected. It did well to do this 3 times, but it was exposed as hopeless at governance.

Care to identify a government (past British, past or present foreign) that in your view was competent at “governance” – could you please also give us your definition of the word (which Wikipedia suggests has several shades of meaning)?

[30] Yup, the Killerometer now has Tory landslide at about 75%, down from 100%.

Your headline may lead people to believe that Tebbit used the word “homo”

I shortened it for space purposes. But does that make Tebitt look better?

@40 Sunny

Would anyone really think The Dark Lord Tebbit would have used the term “homo” anyway?

Although it’s easy to imagine such bigoted filth tripping off his tongue, it’s much harder to believe him coming out with the term itself!

I shortened it for space purposes. But does that make Tebitt look better?

You don’t think ‘homo’ is perjorative?

Space purposes? Puh-lease; you have other headlines of equal or greater length.

But does that make Tebitt look better?

The point is that you made it appear as if he said something that he didn’t and in doing so changed the meaning of what he said, something that wasn’t homophobic but rather about the alleged priorities of CMD.

Sunny,

I’ve just checked through the mission statements for the site – nowhere did I find it argued that you were going to try to match the tabloid press headline for headline. If you want to make this site something special, you have to put in the effort to be better than the scum such as the Mail.

You guys love cooking up conspiracies.

Ok here’s the test then – I’ve changed the headline and it’s now on 3 lines because ‘saving African homosexuals’ is too long in one line.

So, suggest me alternatives. go on.

Don’t cave into their idiocy, Sunny. They’ll think they can dictate everything from now on.

@43 & 44

Be serious..do either of you seriously believe that people would read that headline and take it as read that Tebbit would use the term “homo”? It’s like the two RAF pilots on Mitchell and Webb innit?

Tebbit: Cam should get priorites right

Tebbit kicked a little Chinese boy because he was annoyed at the Chinese New Year celebrations. Nuff said.

You don’t think ‘homo’ is perjorative?

You don’t think that he’s going on about Cameron worrying about “African homosexuals” is indicative enough of his idiocy?

Dave – no, I meant while highlighting his colourful language. Otherwise it has no impact.

Go on, I’m still waiting.

Galen10,

Be serious..do either of you seriously believe that people would read that headline and take it as read that Tebbit would use the term “homo”? It’s like the two RAF pilots on Mitchell and Webb innit?

I don’t know how many people are familiar with Tebbit’s vocabulary.

Is it unreasonable to infer that the words between the quotes are what the person is claimed to have said?

Sunny – Im sorry but I dont consider it that colourful at all, as I posted earlier @37.

A nice rule of thumb is that if the story has no impact without a misleading headline then it isn’t really a story.

Just be patient, give Tebbit time and im sure he’ll give you a headline you can really use.

snorted!

blanco, thanks.
Dave – well I thought this was stupid enough. and clearly many others do too.

I thought the word “homo”, commonly used dismissively as a pejorative, summed up the sprit of what was being said accurately given who was saying it and his track record on such matters. The text of the article tells you the actual word used.

Sunny, is there actually anything wrong with the word “gay”? Seems like it might suit your purposes?

Spot on MM.

‘gays’!! damn, now why didn’t all the others getting outraged think of that? Clarice, yes it does suit my purposes, though it’s getting a bit moot now I think.

I wasn’t outraged, I just think you are better than that.

Thanks for changing it.

@57 Sunny & 58 ukliberty

On the principle that you can’t please all of the people…..; I think you were wrong to change it. The calls of “outraged of Islington” brigade seemed po-faced and a bit “right on” to me. .

The original was punchier, and qualified in the remainder of the piece.

I don’t think you should have caved into them, I just think you are better than that.

I’m sorry you gave in and changed it.

Wouldn’t it have been nice to discuss it with us first, shouldn’t we have a say on what goes on in our country, Our children’s only Homeland, and don’t give me the Bull bout emigrating because this is going on all over western civilization.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9_ZWzC9N98

Lol! I still read it really negatively and thought ‘bl**dy Tebbit the racist, homophobic w*nker!’

So that is interesting that it was changed before.

Funnily enough-or not!-I find this headline more offensive? Why? Because I find educated people like Tebbit who should know better far more scary then some BNP loon who is abb words.

The headlines b4 was sensationlist and if I’d read it with that? Wouldn’t have taken it seriously.

But somehow with THIS headline, I’m like, maaaan…..

Meany Tebbit. Lets talk immigration ALL the time to get people to vote for US bbbbut NOT when it concerns african gays experiencing one of the greatest genocides, since, well the Christians started with the holy army!

Mais who cares? The economy, the ecnomy…..oh F Off. The supid economy reflects around EVERYTHING.

You get you bl**dy trade from Africa! Dumb oohs!

Minerals, cocoa…you can wish the continent would evaporate oh you poor poor Tories and Conservatives but then how would you live?

Since your greatest economy is arms trade to Africa to keep the war on?

But alas, everyone plays dumb in this website and lets the right spout all sorts of illogical and hypocrital rubbish.
