Tories on self-destruct: MP openly advocates cruelty to animals

Philip Davies: His vile opinions have made him a favourite focus of the “Unseat” campaign.

The Conservative Party is falling apart before our eyes, now.

Tories who should know better are openly admitting opinions that voters will abhore.

Take, for example, Philip Davies, Tory MP for Shipley, and his contribution to the debate on whether race horses should be protected from the whip.

The video also includes Labour MP Chris Williamson’s response:

Mr Williamson’s suggestion has prompted a chorus of approval from the massed minds of the social media.

Here’s my favourite response:

If you think Philip Davies doesn’t deserve a hard horse-whipping, just type his name into the search box on this page and read a few of the other articles about him that have appeared on This Site.

    oh the opportunity can we form a orderly queue to see how hard a whip can not hurt the bigmouth of Shipley, perhaps this could comprise of people who comments he has upset, carer’s who had to pay for hospital charges. oh and why not throw in some jockeys but give them bullwhips instead, did the bigmouth of Shipley audition at for blott on the landscape, he make a good Giles Lynchwood with Mrs Forthby!!!!

    Ah, these torys: they traditionally like nothing better than going around dishing out a good whipping: they like to have the ‘whip-hand’: it’s the tory ‘mind-set’! It’s a wonder that ‘fracking protesters’ aren’t sentenced to the ‘cat’! Doesn’t hurt!!!

    A typical huntin fishin shooting type of detestable person who should be horsewhipped to see how it really feels; even if his hide is thicker than the horses.
