Kilroy and the Gypsies


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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. 🙄
