Gordon Brown just called one of his own supporters a “bigot” because she dared question Labour’s policy of mass immigration. Why? Is it not her damn country that she should have a say? She has a right to disagree with the Left’s multicultural experiment. Brown was locked in a tight race for prime minister with Nick Clegg of the Lib Dems, and David Cameron of the Tories. But I think he can kiss his chances goodbye now.
He made the comments as he got into his car after speaking to Mrs Duffy — not realising that he still had the Sky News mic pinned to his shirt.
He told an aide: “That was a disaster – they should never have put me with that woman. Whose idea was that? It’s just ridiculous.”
Asked what she had said, he replied: “Everything, she was just a bigoted woman.”Mr Brown’s unguarded comments were made after the pensioner quizzed him about immigration claiming it was a taboo subject. During their exchange in the street, Mrs Duffy told the Prime Minister: “You can’t say anything about immigrants.”
She added: “All these eastern Europeans – where are they coming from?” Mr Brown said a million people had come from Europe but another million Britons had moved the other way. Mrs Duffy also complained about people on benefits.
She said: “There are too many who aren’t vulnerable and they can claim, and people who are vulnerable can’t get claims – can’t get it.” Mr Brown said: “But they shouldn’t be doing that. There is no life on the dole for people any more.” As he went to leave, the Prime Minister shook her hand and told her: “Very nice to meet you, very nice to meet you.”
She said she would not now be voting in the General Election. Pressed on whether she still wanted Mr Brown in No10, she said: “I’m not bothered whether he does or not now. I don’t think he will.” When Mr Brown was challenged over his remarks in a BBC radio interview, he looked dejected, and held his head in his hand before saying sorry.
Apparently many who vote Labour do so because they favor, well, Laborers, not the Left’s culture-destroying agenda. In other words, shes’ a British “bitter clinger.” Many of the rank and file, however, secretly disagree with this agenda– even if few dare voice their opinions out loud. The pressure to remain a member in good standing of the “Liberal club” is high. Which is why Gordon Brown’s response was not a “gaffe”. The belief that you are bigots is universal and across the board among the Leftist elite such as him. This is how they think, and it’s how they talk about you behind closed doors. Last week it was Lib Dem Nick Clegg telling Britons they’re little better than Nazis, so now it was Gordon Brown’s turn to address the filthy proles of the formerly great Britain. That just leaves David Cameron of the Tories now, who doesn’t strike me as much better than these two. Yes, I know he’s “conservative”, but in the UK that’s the “House of Lords” version more than it is the populist version. Here we call them “rinos” or “country club Republicans.” Truly there is nobody to rally behind in the UK. Below we get to see Mrs. Duffy’s shocked reaction when she hears about it. It seems she will no longer be voting for him.Vodpod videos no longer available.
