Green Party Candidate for Stalybridge and Hyde thinks Cancer is suitable fodder for humour
Above. Jenny Ross, BBC hack and Green Party candidate.
In a reference to Mr Nigel Farage's suffering in his younger days from testicular cancer this alternate comedian drew comparisons with Adolf. Hitler.
This has led to shock and condemnation from all sides, We wonder "Why the shock?" Condemnation is understandable, but shock? Did you really expect anything better from this sort of creature? Had Ed Miliband, David Cameron or Nick Clegg made these remarks then I would have been shocked. And disgusted. But a former BBC "Pop" presenter.... hardly surprising.
As an aside this incident throws an interesting light on the BBC's choice of staff. Look at the fuss made over alleged "Racist" remarks by Jeremy Clarkson. Calls for his dismissal. But make "Right on" insulting remarks about "Right wing" politicians and its thumbs up from the muesli munchers (and other sorts of munchers as well no doubt!)
And while we are claiming that certain politicians emulate Herr Hitler it is worth remembering that at the 1989 Green Party conference a conference paper proposed the reduction of the British Population to between 30 million and 40 million. Whether this is before or after more immigration they didn't say. Wonder whether Ms Ross will take questions on this policy? Or the UN's "Agenda 21"
We shall see.
