Aidan Burley, Tory MP, faces backlash after criticising opening ceremony
Aidan Burley, the Conservative MP who was chastised by David Cameron for participating in a Nazi-themed stag party, has sparked a Twitter campaign to unseat him after launching an attack on the London 2012 opening ceremony.
The MP for Cannock Chase tweeted: "The most leftie opening ceremony I have ever seen - more than Beijing, the capital of a communist state! Welfare tribute next?"
Footballer Stan Collymore, who was brought up in the community quickly responded to more than a hundred thousand followers: "@aidanburleymp I'll happily stand against you at the next election.You have no clue about our town or its people.Game on."
Other Twitter users pointed out that the MP's majority at the last election was only 7%.
Why is that then Burley? Could it be because we paid tribute to our fantastic NHS, the FREE OF CHARGE Great Ormond Street Childrens Hospital, our truly wonderful industrial heritage or our representation, during the ceremony, of ALL colours and creeds in modern Britain? Personally, I thought the opening ceremony was incredibly moving, emotional and very British. Then again, YOUR comments were just what I have come to expect from a maggott who covertly admires Na**'s and constantly attempts to harrass and browbeat the poorer sections of society. You Sir, are not fit for your postion (and never have been), you must be removed from local office and Government with immediate effect for the good of society.
P.s Listen to the John Cooper Clarke poem 'T*AT'. He probably wrote that about you Burley.
Stings doesn't it Burley?
The truth that is!
You make me sick!
The rich, corporations and the famous, will make money from these Olympics! Yet how many of those people who participated in this event, did it in the true mantra of Tory doctrination, of doing it for free!
Yet this is 'A Leftie Opening Cermony'?
The truth is, that you and your nasty Party and it's policies, have caused utter destruction, misery and despare, with your scorched earth policies, sooner than admit, your nasty Party's policies have failed miserably!
i was going to make a statement about cammeron but then i thought why waste typing on a low life waste of space who hasnt got a clue on how to run a bath never mind a country it just seems to me that fat bastards at the top get fatter pay packets while the already struggling family get less.in the picture above it looks like he is worried where his next meal comes from or where i can get my sons new uniform from to start his new school doesnt it ,honest people TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING ALWAYS GET OVER .DISHONEST PEOPLE WELL BASICALY BECOME A POLITION SO THEY CAN SCREW EVERYONE ELSE rant over
(a) Conservative ministers have for years pumped millions of pounds into the NHS, (as have Labour ministers). (b) The Victorian imagery was one of entrepreneurship, e.g Brunel, with ordinary people having to work hard. (c) The Queen was featured, The Bond film franchise got a plug. (d) The music industry got a plug. (e) Votes for Women? - well. we'd never have had Mrs Thatcher as PM if they hadn't won the vote.
If that was a 'leftie' ceremony, I'd hate to see what the MP thinks is right wing. He must have been looking at some other ceremony , because I don't recognise his description. A lot of people worked their socks off on a great occasion so he should apologise.
Sadly i turned it off after only half an hour, and went to bed. !!!!!!!!!!
It was boring, and politically motivated.
And although i am not that fond of our so called, royal family" only the queen herself is
someone who deserves our praise, The bond /qeen stunt, was a bloody insult to the
"Give me the chinese opening as a g ripping festival, any time.
and yes, what a huge waist of money.
