Rod Liddle suggesting poll day when Muslims can't vote ? Watch
He is a tool.
He could have replaced the words with Blacks and disabled people, then see him laugh that off.
Hes socially right wing by modern standards, but ecconomically left-wing. Was a member and supporter of the Labour party his whole life, until Corbyn, and now hes SDP I think, which are still economically very left-wing.
Anyway, I don't care for the outrage... hes paid a lot because there are a lot of people who like to read his stuff.. and for those people, this is exactly the sort of thing they want to read/find funny. Obviously labour/left wing voices are going to be all over it.. but I'm disapointed by the torries reaction (although I shouldn't be surprised given their recent history).
A joke about election rigging shouldn't be to controversial.. it only is so because he used one of the protected classes that we must not ever make jokes about. If he had made the same joke about scottish people, or gingers, or australians. Nothing. People are just offended because of the subject, not because of the context.
