Boris Johnson thinks children of single mothers are ‘ignorant and illegitimate’. Charming!

Boris Johnson: A while ago I used this image with a story about his racism and captioned it “Yes, he’s a sexist too.” In the spirit of fairness: Yes, he’s a racist too.”

Presumably there aren’t many single mums in Uxbridge and Ruislip.

This is a reminder that your Conservative prime ministerial candidate it a complete and utter git:

Boris Johnson branded the children of single mothers “ill-raised, ignorant, aggressive and illegitimate” in a magazine column, it has emerged.

In the same column, he argued it was “feeble” for a man to be reluctant or unable to “take control of his woman.”

He said it was “outrageous” that married couples should fund “‘the single mothers’ desire to procreate independently of men.”

And he said a way needed to be found to “restore women’s desire to be married.”

What on Earth makes this ignoramus think children of single mothers must be illegitimate? Many children are born in wedlock but the marriages then break up – it’s a sad fact of our times.

What makes him think they are “ill-raised, ignorant” and, indeed, “aggressive”? I know many people who were raised by single parents to be hugely valuable members of society.

So Mr Johnson was merely displaying his own ignorance.

Then again, that is obvious from his contention that a man should “take control of his woman”.

The best women I know are utterly uncontrollable and would bring a terrible fate down on any man who tried to change them.

And his comments about restoring “women’s desire to be married” are the ramblings of a sexist control freak.

Notice he says nothing about men’s desire to be married.

We have heard echoes of these sentiments many times in recent weeks and months – these are Boris Johnson’s beliefs.

Allowing such a sexist, misogynist ignoramus to the highest office in the land will reflect appallingly badly on the UK among other nations – and who knows how much harm he could do domestically?

But some people think he has something to offer.

Or are they also prejudiced in their own way – against good government?

Cosseted and sheltered Priti Patel needs to meet real thugs before bandying the word around

Does this look like a threatening gang of thugs to you?

This mollycoddled minister – who once co-authored a book branding the British workforce as lazy while having one of the worst Parliamentary attendance records – is making a name for herself as a fool to equal her boss, Iain Duncan Smith.

Employment minister Priti Patel has already blotted her ministerial copy-book, bringing the Conservative Government into disrepute with her insulting and arrogant response to an Urgent Question about the benefit deaths on the last day of Parliament.

How does Priti Patel ever manage to get elected? She is lazy, stupid, arrogant and ignorant.

Now she has described wheelchair-using and walking-stick dependent pro-NHS campaigners, who visited her constituency office to plead for help protecting the health service, as a “thuggish gang”.

The only thug pictured on this page is her.

Priti Patel has caused outrage by branding these harmless campaigners – some elderly or disabled – a “thuggish gang”.Members of the group were shocked and distressed by the Employment Minister’s attack.

The campaigners, including a wheelchair user and at least two needing walking sticks, visited Ms Patel’s constituency HQ to urge her to protect the health service.

After they braved the rain outside her office in Witham, Essex, she fired off a furious letter to Unite union boss Len McCluskey, who she said was behind the campaign.

Ms Patel wrote: “The lady who works in the Witham ­Conservative Association office felt harassed, frightened and intimated when a thuggish gang of People’s NHS campaigners came to our office.”

Are these gibbering buffoons really the Conservative Party’s hope for the future?

The caption on this picture reads: "Nick Robinson, former Young Conservatives chairman and current BBC political editor, taking a selfie with some young Tories (Photo courtesy of theblueguerilla.co.uk). Perhaps you'd like to dream up your own caption for this image of wild-eyed, slack-jawed decadence (he's the political editor at the BBC and people still think it's left-wing; the mind boggles).

The caption on this picture reads: “Nick Robinson, former Young Conservatives chairman and current BBC political editor, taking a selfie with some young Tories (Photo courtesy of theblueguerilla.co.uk).” Perhaps you’d like to dream up your own caption for this image of wild-eyed, slack-jawed decadence (he’s the political editor at the BBC and people still think it’s left-wing; the mind boggles).

How bizarre. Apparently the right-wing social media want us to believe that, even though Conservative Party membership is believed to have dropped below 100,000, the number of young people joining up or supporting that party is reaching its highest in a decade.

Never mind. If, like Alice, you try to believe six impossible things before breakfast, you still have five more slots available to you.

The new information comes from a website called Vice.com, in an article entitled ‘Rise of the Tory Youth: Meeting Britain’s Young Conservatives’.

And meet them we do, along with some of the most spectacularly ignorant and ill-informed opinions this writer has encountered in a month of Sundays.

Try this, from 24-year-old Louisa Townson, current Tory Society President at University College, London. She tells us she became a member because of Tory economics: “We’d had this huge crash and we knew we had to sort out the national debt and the deficit.” Doesn’t she know that the last four years of Tory economics have cost the UK more than Labour spent in its entire 13 years of office and reduced the deficit by a staggeringly meagre £10 billion?

Louisa thinks the tripling of tuition fees was “fair” – presumably she won’t be saddled with student debt until she’s in her fifties, then.

As for workfare, she thinks “it would be good if [the unemployed] can give something back”. So this young woman, who joined the Conservatives for their economic policies, thinks it’s a good idea to remove paying jobs from the economy by making unemployed people do them – at the taxpayers’ expense – while the rate of corporation tax has nosedived so the host companies take all the profits? How will that help reduce the national debt?

And this is supposed to be an example of the brightest Young Conservative thinking. Oh my word. Oh dear.

Oliver Cooper, president of Tory youth movement Conservative Future, is still under the impression that his party stands for “economic freedom” – the party that, in government, has pushed millions onto the dole to keep wages down; destroyed much of Britain’s remaining industrial base, decimating the economies of entire regions of the UK, to undermine working-class self-confidence and security; de-democratised nationalised industries through privatisation; created a mushrooming of homelessness by promoting house ownership, creating a chronic shortage of social housing and perpetuating it by denying councils the ability to build more; and increased inequalities of income and wealth by cutting the relative value of benefits along with wages, boosting the social exclusion of the poorest in society.

This is supposed to show that it is cool to be a Tory again? Oh good heavens no. It demonstrates the “cancerous… classist and out-of-touch view of the modern middle class youth of today”, as Theodor Ensbury states in the comment column.

“Mix privilege with a lack of life experience … and you have a heady cocktail of political and social empowerment without understanding of consequences,” he adds.

There is much more of this, but there really isn’t any need to go into further detail. Read it yourself, if you can stomach it.

Today’s Tory youth, ladies and gentlemen: Ignorant, insular and insolent.

The last thing they deserve is responsibility.

I wouldn’t give them the time of day.
