The lights are on, but there's nobody home
Grimes today underscored his congenital stupidity, putting several more nails in the coffin of his media career, as he took his cue from the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog and wibbled “It’s 10 years since bigotgate. It exposed much. Concern about community, nationhood and the impact of immigration was dismissed as swivel-eyed bigotry by our New Labour elites. It would bring Brown’s coronation and New Labour’s technocratic and Oxbridge-class rule to a swift end”.
Oxbridge-class rule, to use Grimes’ happy phrase, STARTED in 2010, when David Cameron (Brasenose, Oxford) was joined in the Downing Street rose garden by Nick Clegg (Robinson, Cambridge). Cameron’s Chancellor of the Exchequer was George Osborne (Magdalen, Oxford). Foreign Secretary was William ‘Ague (Magdalen, Oxford).
Basically, since 2010, it’s all been Oxford, with a dash of Cambridge. Which means that Grimes The Stupid has got it approximately 180º wrong. And after Theresa May, we had the aforementioned Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (Balliol, Oxford) as alleged Prime Minister, with his First Secretary and de facto deputy Dominic Raab (Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford and Jesus, Cambridge). The current Chancellor of the Exchequer is Rishi Sunak (Lincoln, Oxford). Hello Darren. Am I getting through?
I could call him stupid once again. But that would be an insult to stupid people.
