Did The Dog Eat Your Homework As Well?

Cllr Kayes, who is the Dorset County Councillor for Bridport, as well as representing the town on the district council and serving as its current mayor, said she removed the post as soon as she realised it could be seen publically.
She said: "It was my private opinion at 7am. It certainly wasn't said in my capacity as mayor. It isn't necessarily what I felt, but I was upset."
Cllr Kayes runs two Facebook account, one in her official capacity and another with private settings.
She added: "People have a right to a private life, even when they are politicians. I am really sorry if it has caused anyone offence but I was privately expressing my opinion in the heat of the moment for a private audience.
"My account was hacked and the settings changed so a private message could be seen publically. I believe this was done with the intention of causing me damage."
Sure it was.

I mean, the only other alternative is that you're too dim to keep seperate accounts, and surely no-one would elect you if that was the case. Right?

One suspects she's not a Brexiteer as 51.3% of the people their defied their political overlords and voted leave.

Of course in their 'enlightened' view, the only reason for not agreeing with their point of view is either abject ignorance or incorrigible stupidity. They're the élite; it's impossible for them to be wrong.

Or to be 'post-factual' which is the latest way Lefties categorise people who have the fpgall to disagree with them.

So what hate crime did she commit? I demand to know!

Just another lefty putting a size 13 boot into her big gob?

Surely the real issue is why an elected politician feels they have to be so craven and backtrack from the heinous crime of having an opinion. So people might have been upset by something she wrote. So bloody what, she's in politics. It is her job to have opinions and sometimes they might be ones that others disagree with. Regardless of whether you meant it to be public or not, don't row back. Stand by your comments. Who knows, the electorate might respect you for it.

Anna Soubry didn't hold back. Somehow I don't think that the majority of her constituency, the part who voted Leave, are feeling too respectful of her views right now. Respect is a two way thing after all.

With a bit of luck the deselection process is under way even as I type. Failing that, whether or not Soubry keeps her seat after the next GE may result in how much crawling and backtracking she does in the next few days.

Personally, if she was my MP, I tell the insulting, brainless bitch to eff off.

"One suspects she's not a Brexiteer.."

The apology was for 'her language', so I suspect not!

"Or to be 'post-factual' which is the latest way Lefties categorise people who have the fpgall to disagree with them."

I've not heard that one! Yet...

"Surely the real issue is why an elected politician feels they have to be so craven and backtrack from the heinous crime of having an opinion."

It seems it was the language she used. Which, I agree, she shouldn't apologise for. It tells voters what they need to know about her.

"Anna Soubry didn't hold back. "

In vino veritas..? ;)
