I don’t usually post twice in one day but did I wake up in the 1960’s this morning? Maybe even the 1930’s!
Listening to the Tories I am starting to think we all did, below is some of the crap they are spouting:
Amber Rudd, Conservative Home Secretary, vows to stop migrants ‘taking jobs British people could do‘ and force companies to reveal number of foreigners they employ. She revealed that companies could be forced to publish the proportion of “international” staff on their books in a move which would effectively “name and shame” businesses which are failing to take on British workers.
Jeremy Hunt, Health Secretary said “the NHS will be “self-sufficient” within 10 years and not have to rely on foreign doctors”.
Theresa May, Conservative Prime Minister, “Once we leave the EU there will be the opportunity to control movements coming from the European Union.
Boris Johnson, Tory MP and current Foreign Minister, wrote in an article for The Sun in April 2016, that asserted that US president Barack Obama had an “ancestral dislike” of Britain, and described him as “part-Kenyan”.
David Davis, Brexit Minister, “We must control immigration,” and he adds: “We will control borders and we will bring the numbers down.”
Tory Cabinet Minister Chris Grayling confirms only “some” workers’ rights will be protected when we leave the EU.
The Tories appear to be descending into a xenophobic celebration of toryness. I might have voted leave but I did not vote leave to demonize Europeans, I did not vote leave to allow the Tories to take this country back to the dark ages. I did not vote leave so that right-wing nutters in the Tory Party can practice their hate, I totally regret and feel ashamed by my leave vote today, I totally regret that my leave vote has been hijacked by ring wing xenophobic Tories, who going on what they say, might be wearing jack boots under their clothes.
I am married to a Ghanaian, my children are mixed race, is this what the UK has become! I really regret that my leave vote, and all the other leave votes made in good faith, have opened the door to hate, the little Englanders in the Tory Party, like in 1964, are coming out their dark hiding places.
Some commentators, are even comparing the Tory Conference to 1930’s Germany, are they wrong!
Theresa May, my message to you is, not in my name. To any EU citizens who might read this, or citizens from other countries who have settled in Scotland, the Tories do not represent Scotland.
Ruth Davidson says the SNP don’t represent Scotland, well Ruth, I’ll take Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP over your Conservative Parties xenophobic hate any day.
Scotland, let’s get the F*** out of this shitty country.
