Kawczynski refugee claim ‘illiterate, immoral and offensive’. Was he drunk again?

Daniel Kawczynski: Is this is excuse this time? It was when he was found guilty of bullying but with reference to refugees, is it a case of “in vino veritas”?

Bullying drinker Daniel Kawczynski, Tory MP for Shrewsbury and Atcham, has been causing trouble again.

Displaying what we probably guessed was the real Conservative attitude towards Ukrainian refugees, he has tweeted: “British Left wing parties demand Britain takes in more Ukrainian refugees. This is illiterate and immoral.

“When war is over Ukrainians will need to return home to rebuild their country. We should be supporting Ukrainian refugees in frontline states like Poland & Romania.”

But this was too much, even for his fellow Tories. Simon Hoare, Chair of the Commons Northern Ireland committee, responded with a harsh verbal slapping: “What utterly risible, illiterate, immoral and offensive bile. Haven’t you heard what @BorisJohnson has been saying?

“You do not speak for the Tory party. I’m not sure you speak for humanity #whitehotfury.”

Kawczynski has now deleted his tweet, which is why This Site can only quote it, rather than actually show it.

This is far from dirty Dan’s first offence.

I detailed some of them in this previous article:

He drunkenly bullied civil servants … after IT issues made it impossible for him to take part in discussions of a Parliamentary committee. He got drunk, bullied one of the civil servants who had tried to help him, and lied about both of them to his colleagues.

This is the bully who, in 2018, threatened legal action against an editor of the BBC’s Newsnight, Ian Katz, who had suggested that his defence of Saudi Arabia’s war of annihilation in Yemen might be linked to the size of his expenses budget whenever he took trips to that country.

In March 2020, tweeted support for his fellow Tory bully, Home Secretary Priti Patel, who was later found guilty of bullying civil servants by a Cabinet Office inquiry but went unpunished because Boris Johnson refused to accept the decision.

In December of 2020, he refused to make another Newsnight appearance for fear of “bullying” behaviour by presenter Emily Maitlis.

He is the entitled Tory bully who wanted to override the will of the Welsh people – and abolish the Welsh Assembly and its government – so he could visit the beach. Wales has different Covid-19-related restrictions and at the time – May 2020 – these included a ban on people crossing the border from England. The incident marked Kawczynski out as a fool because his nearest beach isn’t in Wales – it’s in the Wirral.

In February 2020, he received a formal warning and reprimand from the Conservative Party – but did not have the whip withdrawn – after he shared a platform with right-wing populist politicians such as Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán and the former deputy prime minister of Italy Matteo Salvini.

He’s a serial offender.

And it seems he hasn’t learned his lesson yet.

    I don’t think he’s in any position to make remarks about immigrants from eastern Europe when he himself has an eastern European, Slavic surname People in glass houses really shouldn’t throw stones.
