Gavin Williamson Shouldn’t Resign, He Must be SACKED. #AndImATory

with 5 comments

The disgusting abuse of Jeremy Corbyn by the immature young man who has been give the grave responsibility of running Britain’s defence is beyond redemption.

I am a Tory. I’m no longer a member of the Conservative Party and after 40 years of voting for it I shall never do so again until it turns away from its authoritarian and illiberal path. But I am a true Tory instead of the fake that inhabits 10, Downing Street and her sycophants and hangers on.

Similar smears about Corbyn’s efforts in talking to the IRA and Hamas by other Conservative politicians are also beneath contempt. If our senior politicians aren’t doing all they can to reach out to such organisations in peaceful dialogue then they are irresponsible.  However, that the Defence Secretary demeans himself and his office with such puerile conduct requires firm action. It is horrifying that this idiot has our armed forces under his control.  It would be like giving his allies in defaming Corbyn: Murdoch, Dacre and the Barclay Brothers, access to our weaponry.

Williamson is totally unsuitable for his role and he was well before these events.  He should be a junior assistant at some obscure party branch where he can make his childish mistakes and clumsy errors without causing real harm.  The combination of youthful arrogance, incompetence, poor judgement and a flappy mouth should now destroy his political career for good.  Perhaps his chums in the Fleet Street Mafia can find something for him to do publishing more poison and abuse?

Before that he should be dragged through the courts and bankrupted. There is no defence of fair comment or honest opinion for his behaviour, not even against the leader of a political party. Indeed, Williamson’s behaviour is an argument for bringing such serious slander back into the criminal courts.

  1. Some of the best mps in any party were barristers or worked in the legal system! So it no surprise that some of these young mps are opening themselves up to libel! That being said I think he needs a dressing down, this says more about the media barons and their relationship with certain politicians (of ether party) than the story itself! But it will embarris May’s government!

  3. Is his mentor Boris Johnson or the other idiot who was forced to remove his tirade on Jeremy Corbyn from Twitter?

  5. The ability for talentless people to go far is woven into the fabric of the conservative party. The owners of media outlets prefer conservative ideology, and therefore don’t hold them to account properly. What happens when people in power don’t have accountability? People like Gavin Williamson become secretary of defence.

    I’m sorry but this is just a natural occurrence. Conservatives with big platforms won’t hold conservatives to account.
