Shadow Minister Calls Voter 'Horrible Racist'

Post by Lord Foul on Thu May 19, 2016 9:56 pm

A key member of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour front bench team has been forced to apologise after branding a voter a “horrible racist”.

Pat Glass, appointed Shadow Europe Minister by Mr Corbyn less than six months ago, made the verbal attack while campaigning in Derbyshire for Britain to remain in the EU.

It came during a radio interview when she described an exchange with a voter who said a Polish family living in the town were “scroungers”.

“The very first person I come to was a horrible racist,” she told BBC Radio Derby. “I’m never coming back to wherever this is.”


Pat Glass is campaigning to keep the UK in the European Union

In fact, Ms Glass, MP for North West Durham, was in Sawley, a village in south-east Derbyshire.

She has now apologised and said: "The comments I made were inappropriate and I regret them.


“Concerns about immigration are entirely valid and it’s important that politicians engage with them.

"I apologise to the people living in Sawley for any offence I have caused.”

anyone get the feeling that her appology has more to do with "political appearences" than a genuine admission she was wrong

Another sample of todays "typical lefty" and their contempt of ANYONE who doesnt toe their line.......

and a glimpse of WHY the lefty loves europe so much....they would LOVE it to become a left wing stalinist dictatorship....

vote LEAVE....and DONT vote labour....

"The lefty"?! That sounds like skinheads talking about "The Jew," for chrissakes.

But I love how one politician's mistake is an indication that every liberal wants Stalin in charge Rolling Eyes

I can state with full confidence that the left in Europe doesn't want to live in a Stalinist dictatorship, and also that this woman's comment was in no way an indicator to the contrary.

Seriously man.

It doesnt seem that way when you look at labours record on these matters...she isnt the first you know...

and for your information the EU is well on its way to that particular end point....

the euro parliament is a dead duck, overruled and supplanted by the unelected "comission" who actually make and force upon us the "regulations"

More of the same from the lefties here...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newsvideo/uk-politics-video/7645390/Gordon-Brown-calls-voter-bigoted-in-open-mic-gaffe.html





The lefties here stopped representing the views of the British people long ago... they now wish to impose THEIR agenda on the people!!!



Under the lefties it is becoming another 'do as you're told or else' type of 'democracy'... how could that ever end up as anything else other than an authoritarian fascist dictatorship...!?

I was there now I'm here.

And just great. You just gave away the top secret super coded big game plan. We have been luring them into a false sense of security since 1945. Way to go Comrade Big Mouth.

She wasn't wrong was she.    Polish people are reknowned for being hard workers.  She shouldn't have apologised in my view.

You can't really generalise in that manner. The issue was a particular Polish family, not Polish people in general. It was also wrong to say that the person was racist just because the family is Polish. She wouldn't have assumed that if the person was talking about a British family.

Of course she should have apologised. It seems that nothing was learned from Gordon Brown's gaff when he called a woman "bigoted" for expressing concern about immigration.

Firstly: the voter was entitled to call anyone, Polish or not, "a scrounger" (and they're obviously not working so sassy's comment was pointless re this OP)
Secondly, Ms Goss is entitled to call someone a racist if that's what she thinks (though in this case the person called the polish person a scrounger and that isn't a race??)

Pointless story blown out of propertion with a pointless and meaningless apology at the end.

I don't think Pat Glass is entitled to say that. It's not against the law obviously, but it's extremely unwise in her position. It makes her sound like she's bigoted herself and that she's not listening to the views of ordinary people. That kind of thing can really damage the Labour party, and they're already in trouble re the accusations of antisemitism.
