David Cameron has slammed Aidan Burley as “idiotic” over his disgusting comments on the Olympic opening ceremony. And as though the message to his leading backbench embarrassment wasn’t clear, the prime minister then invoked his notorious quip that “too many tweets make a twat”:
“I think what he said was completely wrong. It was an idiotic thing to say … I did once say something about people who use Twitter, particularly politicians, and I think in this case I was absolutely spot on.”
And in further bad news for Burley, LabourList today revealed that the opposition plan to select their candidate early in order to capitalise on his Nazi-partying, boorish behaviour.
Supposedly a safe Labour seat, the Tories seized Cannock Chase on one of the biggest swings of the 2010 general election — leading many to question the scrutiny process for Burley’s selection.
Scrapbook plans to register with the Electoral Commission as a “third party” campaigning organisation. Burley can count on seeing our handiwork in spring 2015.
