Tom Davey – another example of the best Conservatism has to offer

These creeps are coming out of the woodwork, it seems.

The latest member of the Conservative Party to reveal his true colours via the social media is Tom Davey. That’s DaVey, not DaLey the Olympic diver – although the world would be a happier place if this guy took a running jump.

Davey has been broadcasting his thoughts on Facebook, spreading messages of hatred towards minorities and women, along with dubious attempts at humour (according to Political Scrapbook) – for at least the past six years.

For example, take a look at this message:

“Benefit claiming scum beware. ps i don’t like paying taxes for you lazy bastards!”

or this one:

“Finding a job would be easier if [I] were a black female wheel chair bound amputee who is sexually attracted to other women.”

or this one:

“More excited than Harold Shipman in a nursing home.”

The messages were posted in 2008, when he was at the London School of Economics. One is led to question whether he was a member of that organisation’s Tory clubs because this man is now a Conservative councillor in Barnet.

The following year he delivered this:

“Smacking [my] bitch up… that’ll teach her for ironing loudly whilst the football is on!”

He later justified this by saying he does not like football and his wife doesn’t do the ironing.

Has he mellowed in the years since? Evidence suggests otherwise.

Last week, as Barnet Council’s lead member for housing, he admitted that he doesn’t care about the lack of affordable housing pushing poor people out; he wants rich people to take their place.

In a debate that was filmed by a member of the public, he said: “If there is such a problem with Barnet, if Barent is such a terrible place to ive and if it is so unaffordable, why are people flocking to Barnet and why are house prices going up? It’s because people want to live here.”

Challenged by an opposition councillor who said the only people coming were those who could afford it, he blurted: “And they’re the people we want!”

    So is this arrogant fool saying that our troops, this the Tory party have thrown on to the dole are lazy spongers? Or the thousands of others that Labour and Tory boys have thrown upon the scrap heat of time? Who descimated British industry but parliament, all parties, and those workers, as present day workers, paid the wages of this arrogant fool.

    Are you sure he isn’t in the BNP. The naked aggression, ignorance, stupidity and pure unadulterated nastiness makes him seem like a natural candidate for that party.

    What a pig. I hope he gets boils. Lots of them, resistant to antibiotics. In painful places.

    How appalling – well lets hope that this gets into the papers and he’s brought to account by the cons party! His words about everyone who is poor or disabled, gay or straight are disgraceful and should not be passed over. Who the hell does this pr**k think he is? He’s no better than anyone, he’s actually worse than most people for having such a vile tongue and disgusting thoughts about others. He’s more low class than I am as I would never write or say that certain groups of people are not wanted in certain parts of the country – except for tories that is – for them I have a deep hatred and will write and say what I think about them!

    Reblogged this on Beastrabban’s Weblog and commented:
    Another example of a sneering, Tory bigot. It seems that some of the nastiest, most ignorant people in politics join the Conservatives. This man probably believes he is just being ‘non-pc’, like the Daily Mail and other Right-wing rags, who similarly complain about such speech and behaviour codes, intended to protect the underprivileged and helpless from hatred and abuse. If such individuals win their campaign against what they see as ‘political correctness’, you can expect more of this naked sneering in the name of Upper class, White entitlement. As for his idea that forcing the poor out of their home neighbourhoods through rising rents and property prices, sadly he isn’t alone. Back in the early ‘Noughties’ a friend of mine told me he had an argument on one website debating West Country issues. He had been arguing about the rise in property prices in Somerset, like the rest of rural Britain, forcing the traditional local inhabitants out of the area, while the local housing stock became affordable only to rich outsiders. He was justifiably angry as one of the others on the forum saw this process of displace and disinheritance as being a Very Good Thing indeed. He actually even hailed it as ‘a new Highland Clearances’, which should enrage any guid patriotic Scots reading this blog. This shows the attitude of this section of the Conservative party: a complete contempt for the poor, Black, gay, disabled or female.

    We really shouldn’t be surprised when a Tory boy reveals his true colours, but it’s depressing for my son and his partner – both teachers – who work in Barnet and are struggling to afford to live there. He may very well resent paying taxes for people on benefits, but not as much as they resent paying this bastard’s wages via their council tax so he can spew his hateful opinions in public.
