Kilroy and the Gypsies


Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

How can you not love this picture of him?

In other news, he’s apparently touring the country speaking to gypsies for a Channel 4 documentary this week. And he’s refusing to speak to the media. This seems slightly strange to me: A ‘politician’ who left UKIP because they suddenly ‘went quiet’ has set up his own party and, erm, gone quiet.

And what is this doing on the website of a ‘straight-talking party’:

The Daily Mail are running a poll in which the question is:

‘Would you vote for Robert Kilroy-Silk’s Veritas party?’

Currently the findings are that 32 % say that they would vote for Veritas.

The latest yougov Poll on voting intentions is as follows:

Labour 42%
Conservative 30%
Lib. Dems. 21%
Others 7%

Assuming that Veritas were to take it’s votes equally from all parties then Veritas would top the polls!

The revised figures would be:

Veritas 32%
Labour 28.56%
Conervatives 20.4%
Lib. Dems. 14.28%
Others 4.76%

“Assuming that Veritas were to take it’s votes equally from all parties”?!? Because, of course, that’s likely. 🙄
