Gay donkeys and pro Mini Golfers. The extraordinary case of Lewisham's "Democrats and Veterans" Mayoral candidate. And I swear it's all true. Honest. Well apart from the hamster.
#LewishamMayor #LocalElections2018…
Still trying to work out how old Will Donnelly is and what combat experience the former Secretary of Young Independence has. Does arguing with a year 8 about jumping the queue count as combat experience?
I'm also desperate to know what the Democrats and Veterans party campaign slogan means - it's:

“Don’t just BUY British – buy patriot” 

Guys? @DandVParty @JohnReesEvans
Well I'm told he's 19. That a 19 year old with no combat experience and no connection with this Borough is a mayoral candidate for the Veterans party should surprise me. But this is 2018.

The Conservative party conference is being held at the ICC in Birmingham - built with £49.7 million of funds provided by the European Council. The foundation stone was laid by Jacques Delors.
Birmingham city centre was destroyed by German bombing in WW2 and hastily and cheaply reconstructed in the 50s and 60s. Hundreds of millions of pounds of EU money has poured into that city since the 80s with the Conservative Party conference taking place bang in the centre
And please.... please don't tell me it's "our money" or that the UK government would have done it anyway because I can't be bothered to take you by the hand, lead you to a corner and explain simple things in words of one syllable

"What about a bus?"
"We tried the fucking bus. The fucking bus is why we're here."
"How about me making an allusion to something in antiquity - perhaps in latin?"
"Shut it Mogg. Honest to God. Shut the fuck up."

Sure all the #FreeTommy people who sent in donations for Tommy's legal fees will be delighted to see him sunning himself in a 5 star hotel in the Canaries.... for two weeks.…
Wanted to knock off a Tommy Robinson holiday diary but I suppose it writes itself. And I'm too flipping busy...
This is Lutz Bachmann the guy Yaxley Lennon aka Tommy Robinson was hanging out with in Tenerife. He's barred entry from the UK because he's a hate preacher.

1952. Funeral for George VI .... wonder if @BorisJohnson would ever dare called these women letterboxes?
The Queen is a descendant of Mohammed. So perhaps this was all Sharia by stealth.
Boris Johnson is a descendant of George II who in turn was a descendant of Edward IV. Edward was a direct descendant of Princess
Zaida (later Isabella) who converted to Roman Catholicism from Islam and married Alfonso VI of Spain. Zaida was a descendant of Mohammed. So is Boris

My cousin is very observant. She wears a full head covering and lives in a women only secluded, walled society right in the middle of West London. If I wish to visit her it is extremely complex. Most of the times I've seen her she was behind a grill. My cousin is a Carmelite nun
Carmelites almost never leave the walls of their convent. They take vows of chastity and silence and don't show their faces to the outside world. Is it religious extremism? Clearly? Do these women pose a threat to our society? Clearly not. Do I agree with it? No.
And yet women like @LPerrins who no doubt are deeply respectful of Catholic Carmelite nuns hold completely different attitudes to women who live considerably freer lives and choose to wear the burqa/niqab. It's grotesquely hypocritical #Newsnight

Yaxley Lennon's prison complaint. The lack of a TV in his cell amounted to "mental torture." #TommyRobinson
Tommy Robinson literally spent his time in prison bleating about not having a tv
Notice also that Yaxley Lennon feels he's been racially discriminated against. This from a man who believes that racism has been so devalued that it doesn't mean anything any more
