Pride's Purge

The retired Met’ Detective Chief Inspector who took a photograph of Diane Abbott MP drinking a mojito on a train was disciplined and forced into early retirement because of his far-right wing posts on social media.

In 2016, DCI Mick Neville faced disciplinary action for homophobic comments and rants about “left-wing idiots” and migrants who have “turned London into a foreign city”.

Unluckily for Mr Neville, and the Sun and the Mail who tried to make something from this story, their plans have backfired spectacularly.

The story has only gone to make Diane Abbott more human and more popular in the public’s eyes.

Personally, I think obsessive strange men secretly taking photographs of women on trains is much more worrying than someone taking a little drink from a can on the way home from work.

Pride's Purge

This might be my most controversial blogpost yet. But truth hurts sometimes.

Of course, it’s not rocket science. Racists are racist, racism is racism.

And there is a huge amount of it. Black MPs such as David Lammy and Diane Abbott get massive amounts…

The petition website crashed repeatedly as it received its fastest number of signatures since its inception, alongside the millions of signatories coming back to stare at the figures in disbelief.

The backlash from the No Deal agitators came quickly: pointing out a fraction (~1%) of the signatures were apparently signed abroad (possibly from the 3m British expats or those on holiday), sneering at the “liberal elite” “Remoaners” who were trying to “steal democracy” and the moderates who were “betraying Brexit”.

I support this petition wholeheartedly. Am I a liberal elite? Liberal, maybe, but “elite”? My dad immigrated here as a student in 1957 and my mum left school at 16. I grew up near Portsmouth. I went to state school, worked part-time stacking shelves and…
