Quote of the Week – Beasts & Crooks

Section:

Dennis Skinner on the now rejected Tory election fraud allegations

 

Yesterday, the Electoral Commission astonishingly rejected all but one of the allegations of electoral fraud against Conservative Party candidates and officials in relation to activities during the 2015 General Election campaign. A potential charge, against Craig MacKinlay, the MP for South Thanet, is all that now “remains under consideration”.

 

A quote and image shared on Twitter by writer Marcus Chown summed up the reaction of many to the news perfectly. It featured a picture of ‘The Beast of Bolsover’ Dennis Skinner MP and the following text:

 

Dennis Skinner: “Half the Tories opposite are crooks”.

 

Speaker: “Please retract”.

 

Dennis Skinner: “OK, half the Tories opposite aren’t crooks”.

 

In text accompanying what he shared, Chown added: “Whether it was Skinner who said this or someone else, it seems apt. #ToryElectionFraud”.

  1. I’ve always despised Dennis Skinner but one occasionally has to forgive his awfulness because of that wonderful acerbic wit.
