I'd like to think, one day, there'll be a time when some arsehole won't say something stupid and be cheered to the rafters for his stupidity. But no, not yet.
Today's cretinous shambles of an alleged human being is Tory party twatface Peter Hobbins, a councillor, who said:
I have been contacted by a Mr Dilon Gumraj and a Zerha Zaidi and others who are all on the approved Conservative Parliamentary Candidates list.
Not one of them has a ‘normal’ English name.
They want to be the PPCs for Orpington and asked me for my personal advice on how they would be the best candidates for the Orpington Constituency. My view? For Hell’s sake.
Nice guy, eh. People are kind and ask him for his advice, and he slags them off to his mates for not having 'normal English' names. Presumably he's embittered because he hasn't made it as an MP - not realising it might be because he's a total prick rather than because people who don't have 'normal English' names are getting priority over the likes of him.
Now quite rightly the Conservative Party has taken action against this complete cock, but that's a disgrace as far as our friends reading the story on the Mail's website are concerned.
The Conservatives, I thought are the party who understand that we have had enough of Labour,their mass immigration, their bias in favour of foreigners,any ethnic minority,if the y suspend Peter Hobbins, there is nothing wrong with what he said, they are no different to Labour.and misunderstand the general feelings of the voters.

And Jack of Ashford is not alone. He's joined by dozens of roaring bastards who can't understand that attitudes like Hobbins's, and theirs, are why people don't like the Tories, and think they're scum.
But the story has done its job. It's provoked the hostility it was designed to. The Mail are clever enough to leave a great big cheese outside the mousehole every now and then, and just wait for the readers to do their work for them. Last word to Hobbins though:
‘Why are the Candidates Department so keen on these foreign names?!!!! Maybe I should change my name to something foreign – how does Petrado Indiano Hobbinso sound to you?!’
Sounds like you're a cunt, pal.
