One of the few traditional Conservatives to have served on the Tory front bench under Cameron, Paterson was Secretary of State for Northern Ireland before being promoted to the more high profile role of Secretary of State for Defra.

Candidate of the day

Owen Paterson

One day to go and Sir John Major has weighed in. “Labour divides to rule. To win votes they will turn rich against poor; north against south; worker against boss." We hope we don't wake up with them on Friday.

Hero of the day

Sir John Major

Another awful Labour woman. The fact Ed Miliband’s carved his pledges in stone doesn't mean he might not break them, campaign chief Lucy Powell has said.

Villain of the day

THE REAL CONSERVATIVE MANIFESTO

Back marriage. Restore grammar schools. Leave the EU.

Lefty Lunacy: Lily Allen is confused – again

Virtue-signalling singer and Corbyn fan Lily Allen has gone on Twitter and argued with Tommy Robinson (formerly of the English Defence League). Allen said that “white males and their attitudes towards our laws continue to threaten our values and communities.”

She then turned her sights on foreign policy, claiming that “Isis kill innocent people by the way, they cause horrific pain and destruction across the world, so do we. I'm sorry for that.”

If the sanctimonious Ms Allen cannot tell the difference between the brutes of Islamic State and the elected UK Government, perhaps she should stick to pop songs.

  • John Birch

    I blame the drugs.

    • Rintintin

      I blame her father.

  • Politically__Incorrect

    A sleb with a political opinion is a bit like a monkey with a hand-grenade. It’ll go off at some point and almost certainly kill the wrong people. Look on the bright side though, without these pc clowns, there would be nothing to fill this most entertaining column and provide a few chuckles during an otherwise tedious day.

  • Bob Marshall

    Ms Allen should be taken to somewhere quiet and thoroughly ignored.

    • weirdvisions

      I’d prefer thoroughly soundproof.

  • Bik Byro

    I don’t know why people who can sing and play a guitar feel they are most qualified to talk about politics.

    To turn it around around it would be like Tony Blair reckoning he was good at playing the guitar. Oh, wait …

    • Urban Spaceman 69

      ‘I don’t know why people who can sing and play a guitar feel they are most qualified to talk about politics.’

      Lefty lord of the manor Billy Bragg springs to mind.

      • Kingstonian

        Or the “Working Class Hero” himself, multi-millionaire John Lennon.

    • morbidfascination

      But she can’t even sing.

  • derek

    White males created and maintained the laws and society in which she makes such a puerile contribution.

    • RingedPlover

      It seems everything is the fault of these ‘white males’.

      • Shazza

        Well the excellent news for ‘white male’ Tommy Robinson is that this spat has raised his profile and Amazon report that sales of his book ‘Enemy of the State’ have soared.

        The deranged Left have an admirable talent for shooting themselves in the foot.

        • Their marksmanship is getter better, or at least higher and more to the centerline.

  • Demon Teddy Bear

    Perhaps Ms Allen should be invited to leave these shores at her earliest convenience.

    • weirdvisions

      She could go and do a Morrissey and cry buckets over the “illegal”
      white male Brit colonisation of the Falklands to adoring Argentinians.

      With luck she’ll not bother coming back.

  • Harley Quin

    Who cares what this entertainer has to say?

  • Nockthesheeple

    Who cares what anybody writes on Twitter?

    • RingedPlover

      And why do people take them seriously. But they do.

  • Hound_Of_Zeus

    It’s a tap dancing pop tart. No one takes it seriously.

  • Owen_Morgan

    “If the sanctimonious Ms Allen cannot tell the difference between the brutes of Islamic State and the elected UK Government, perhaps she should stick to pop songs.”

    Or she could become an anchorite on, say, the western-facing side of St Kilda.

  • Alan Llandrindod Wells

    You should not mock the afflicted.
    She has been sobbing since her Calais trip to help ISIL juniors.
    She vomited at the Brexit vote.
    Threatened to self-harm over Trump.
    Just how much can one poor wretch take.

  • John Smith

    maybe she has to tow the line cos of her boyfriend?

  • Phil R

    She should be grateful for white males sacrificing themselves in wars so that she has a society where it is still safe to say these stupid and disrepectful things about men…..

    • RingedPlover

      I think in WW2 it was essentially white males fighting white males?

  • launcher

    Poor Lily, “better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” (attributed to Abraham Lincoln).

  • Christopher Mooney

    Kind of funny how you guys stop caring about rape, as soon as the rapist is white.

    Can you just admit you use the “muslim rape” thing as ammo for your general racism, and we can all move on

    • RingedPlover

      Wow: that’s impressive. You have said without a shred of evidence that people don’t care about rape if the ‘rapist is white’ which allows you to claim, without saying so, that you aren’t racist.

    • parasandy

      Hey Looney perhaps you can answer your own question if you look at the information?
      “She should perhaps enquire of the 1400 kids in Rotherham that were raped & abused”
      How many “Asians-Pakistanis, Banglas, Afghanis” etc do you know that are “white”

    • Rebecca Rose

      Christopher how very bigoted of you. Another label thrower, throw a label, no evidence, no facts. Labels are not sticking.

    • putin

      Nothing funny about rape Chris.

    • Politically__Incorrect

      “Can you just admit you use the “muslim rape” thing as ammo for your general racism,”

      “Muslim” isn’t a race.

  • f1_karen

    It never ceases to amaze me the things some “celebrities” will say simply to try & be relevant, She should perhaps enquire of the 1400 kids in Rotherham that were raped & abused.

    • Partridge

      1400 is a wild over-estimate, an extrapolation from an absurdly small sample using mindless (if not intentionally biased) methodology and sampling errors.

      • RobertRetyred

        There were, and are, other places in addition to Rotherham where these life changing attacks took place.

        • Partridge

          No doubt, but we should always be questioning dodgy studies and mendacious statistics from politically correct lefty-liberal Marxist-feminist social justice warriors representing themselves as experts. They have an agenda, and will always distort and demonise, falsify and lie in order to achieve their aims if they think they can get away with it.

          • Kingstonian

            What exactly do you suppose the agenda is for your “politically correct lefty-liberal Marxist-feminist social justice warriors” in exaggerating the number of children abused by Muslim men in Rotherham? I would have expected them to try to downplay the numbers, if anything.

          • Partridge

            Why on earth would you expect that? Honestly, you should not expect anything logical from these people. They would destroy one of their own for stepping out of line and expressing an opinion contrary to the prevailing group-think.

          • bow man

            its not just rotherham anyway, nothing special about rotherham, its just the designated scapegoat. It was covered up all over the country

          • Partridge

            See my posts above..

        • f1_karen

          The 1400 figure is a fairly accurate, if fairly conservative figure, It’s amazing that some seek to diminish the scale of abuse that spanned a period of 16 years.

          • Partridge

            One case of abuse is one too many, but it’s amazing that some seek to inflate statistics in order to justify their own ideological agenda.

      • f1_karen

        No, it isn’t, read the official report, see how many individual names were submitted.

        • Partridge

          That’s a most unorthodox way of producing statistics!

  • stanm

    “white males and their attitudes towards our laws continue to threaten our values and communities.”

    Obviously referring to those still trying to sabotage the referendum result.

  • Chingford Man

    “One of the things that I find really makes it worth watching all the Academy Awards, all the Emmys, all those awards ceremonies, is to see how today’s actors and television performers have discovered [this] formula. If you become indignant, this elevates you to the plane of “intellectual.” No mental activity is required. It is a rule, to which there has never been an exception, that when an actor or a television performer rises up to the microphone at one of these awards ceremonies and expresses moral indignation over something, he illustrates Marshall McLuhan’s dictum that “moral indignation is a standard strategy for endowing the idiot with dignity.”

    Deport this woman to Pakistan.

  • Outraged Tunbridge Wells

    Anyway enough about me talking about me. What do you think of me? Narcissist trying so hard to be noticed and relevant. Yet more unsubstantiated claims, this time of sexual assault rather than abuse by cabbie
