Tory Twit of the week #5

Ok so we’re trying to be a little less expletive this week and having a ‘twit’ and not a ‘tit’ of the week, if this has annoyed you and you would prefer to refer to the Tories in the worse way possible then you can, just don’t do a Paxman and add the letter ‘n’ to ‘cuts’. please feel free if you want ‘tit’ to be re-instated…

This week’s tory twit is someone many of us on the left (and indeed many in the centre and right) despise, and this week has shown us many of the reasons in a neat little bundle. To begin with, he showed his love of token gestures by raising the bank levy by £800 million on Tuesday.  Whilst this may seem like a large sum, to bankers this is spare change and it was described as the equivalent of “a rounding error” on tuesday’s edition of “the daily politics”. This was widely seen as a little nugget of popular thinking for this week’s twit to use when going up against Ed Balls for the first time later that day in the commons. This event, dear reader, is what has wound this blogger and many sensible people up so much that I christen him as this week’s twit.

During the usual fiery exchanges of commons debate this weeks tory twit ran out of useful things to say and decided to pick on Ed Balls in true public-school fashion, by mocking his disability. Mr Balls has managed recently to cope more and more with his speech impediment saying “There will be certain consonants that I just can’t say together. It would be impossible for me to start a sentence with an H. I often start sentences with ‘look’ or ‘well’ because the key thing is to get moving.” in the times recently. On Tuesday, Mr Balls was mocked, drawing attention to his disability in the worst possible way, which this week’s twit saying about one of Mr Balls’ questions “He clearly had a lot of time to prepare that but I’m not sure it all came out as he expected.” This disgusting rudeness has caused much consternation.

Yesterday, the much-hyped “Merlin” deal between the treasury and the banks was announced to a sea of the disappointed with a Libdem Treasury spokesmen being fired for telling the BBC that the treasury had be “taken for a ride” by the banks. On the upside, Mr Balls got his own back by with “we have gone from Project Merlin to the Wizard of Oz”. So this week’s Tory Twit award for outstanding services to rudeness as well as idiocy is

Gideon “George” Osborne

    What about Cameron , diverting attention away from unpopular economic policies, by stirring up anti Europe sentiments on whole prisoner vote issue. Something that once riled up is uncontrollable. Seems more twitish.

    this man is clearly out of his depth even if he is (which i doubt) he comes across completely clueless. on top of that he has the look of the pervy uncle. basically he doesn’t restore any confidence in the majority it would seem
