You heard it here first - article about to be published in The Guardian about the nasty, uber-right-wing under current within the Tory Party. 'I've never voted Tory before but...' the posters say and thou shalt be forgiven for falling for Dave's smooth, cuddly liberal sound-bites. But perhaps you wouldn't be so eager if you knew about (cue scary music) The Young Briton's Foundation- a bunch of right-wing geeks who should really be deported (along with their views) to Alaska where they could vote for Palin who is basically their political/spiritual figurehead.
Seriously - these guys are pro death penalty, anti gay marriage, unconvinced (to put it mildly) by GLOBAL WARMING (CAPS LOCK) and think the NHS should be scrapped. Don't believe me? Just read the blog of YBF founder and injunction-happy lawyer Donal Blaney (pictured above) who likes to wax lyrical on his blog about how climate change protesters should be shot and how MI6 collusion in torture is no bad thing... oh no you can't sorry - he's taken the entire blog down (presumably because The Guardian is about to out him). Come on man - if you're going to be a right-wing zealot, at least stick by your opinions!
'Okay,' I hear you say, 'but why should we give a shit about this marginal nutter?' Well, a quick look at the YBF members list answers that question:
MP - Chairman
MP former shadow home secretary, failed leadership bid
MP - Shadow Defence Secretary
MP - Shadow Secretary for Children, Schools, families
MEP - PRESIDENT OF YBF
MP - Economic Competitiveness
MP - Shadow minister for culture
Earl of Stockton
PHOWAR! That's quite a collection - how is Cameron going to keep to his green/'I won't cut the NHS'/I love gays and minorities agenda with all that lot waiting to rear their ugly right wing heads as soon as he gets them elected? Oh yeah........ he's not.
p.s. why is a middle-aged lawyer like Donal founding groups with the word 'young' in the name? He's even got aFacebook profile and he comments on young people's status'!! Eeeeeeer!! Imagine if you're dad did that - that's the litmus test of middle-aged weirdness btw.
