Moron of the Moment – Shaun Bailey


Pontificating pillock Shaun Bailey proves himself unfit to be Mayor of London after curiously claiming impoverished homeless people can and should save £5,000 to get a home

As we pointed out last March, Rory Stewart would have made a great Mayor of London. Sadly, since he’s no longer in the running, the “inept banger-on about being the son of a bus driver” Labour incumbent Sadiq Khan is getting the bloody easiest ticket-to-ride.


Aside from an especially creepy looking American YouTuber and fan of David Icke named Brian Rose as an independent, all the opposition have managed to put up is a pontificating pillock named Shaun Bailey. This self-declared “different dude” is standing for the Conservative Party in spite of bizarrely previously branding himself “gobby and dangerous.”


Having declared a pointlessly ear-piercing policy of giving free burglar alarms to 300,000 Londoners aged 65 plus and shown himself as a “foolish man with pockets plainly as large as China” in 2020, bombastic Bailey has returned to the fray this week. This Tory twit has now ludicrously stated that he believes 62,670 “homeless people in the capital would be able to save up for a £5,000 deposit to buy a share in a newly-built affordable home.”


Reported on this morning in the Guardian and Mirror, Bailey’s off-the-wall remarks to Inside Housing included:


“I don’t think the £5,000 [deposit to secure a mortgage] will [be a problem for those currently in temporary accommodation]. The mortgage application thing might be a bit tougher … They could save for it, yeah.”


Going further, the Guardian reported that this “man of gimmicks” and “malicious” moron continued with his gibberish:


Pressed by the interviewer on whether he was suggesting a homeless family in bed and breakfast accommodation could afford a deposit, Bailey replied: “Not all of them, but some people could. A full proportion of people could.”


He added: “I know about that situation, I sofa surfed for years. You’re right, I definitely couldn’t have come up with £5,000, but those people I’m not expecting to or asking to. We’ll provide social housing for them.”


Reaction to this nitwit numbskull was unsurprisingly that of “widespread bewilderment” and of him, Lambeth Labour councillor Ed Davie tweeted:


“Famously, people living in poverty usually have at least £5,000 lying around – it’s amazing that it hasn’t occurred to them to simply buy a London property, which are well known for being really cheap. Thank God senior Tories are here to give out this good advice.”


Whilst Sadiq Khan’s policies – such as the extension of Boris Johnson’s bonkers bike lanes – have been equivalent to driving a bus into a brick wall, Shaun Bailey has yet again proven something else: Here, indeed, is a berk who shouldn’t be allowed to be in charge of a bus ticket, let alone Britain’s capital. It’s time, instead, that Bailey was just put back in his box.

Birds of a Feather – Shaun Bailey with Boris Johnson. The fact that the pair “get on well” is proof enough that the loopy wannabe Mayor of London is unfit for office.

Birds of a Feather – Shaun Bailey with now former Prime Minister David Cameron. The smug look on this duo’s faces sums up the “f**k the rest of you” attitude of these opportunists; here is a pair whose involvement in politics has caused nothing but disaster for everyone whilst their own pockets get deeper.
Brian Rose’s decision to stand as a candidate to become Mayor of London was understandably greeted with mockery by ‘Coffeezilla’ and described as “some form of joke” by ‘From The Hornets Nest.’

  1. He looks in need of a good birching!!!!!! Plainly his dada did not instil any discipline in his childhood!!!!!!!!!!!! Do NOT send Down Under!!!!!!!!! We’ve got enough trouble with boat jumping here!!!!!!! Tony Abbott would not tolerate this!!!!!!!!!!! Boris should not either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Thick as pigshit this one Bailey. Is homeless hater Lady Borwick backing him? She must be envious as I know she always hankered after Boris’ job back in the day. I wonder what Flicka has to say about Bailey’s homeless idea – she’s done nothing for the “tent city” people I see!

  3. So we have another muppet that wants to rule the roost?
    Is this the best we can pull out of the hat?
    Does he really think a homeless person can come up with 5 grand? even if that were true, what planet is he on when he thinks a lending institution is going to give a homeless person a mortgage?
    I think Mr Bailey just wants to get onto the bottom rung of the ladder to gravy train superannuation freedom.
    Let’s make wild stupid statements, yes, that should get me noticed, and give me a nice bit of free publicity. Where do we get these morons from??
