More to Life than (reading UKIP) Shite

Trawling through the blogosphere can be a mind-numbing but strangely captivating experience. No matter how barmy most blogger comments are, there’s some perverse pleasure to be had from reading them.

The More to Life than Shoes blog, run by UKIP press officer Annabelle Fuller is case in point. Usually consisting of ill-tempered rants blaming the EU (sorry that should be the Soviet/Nazi/Fascist/Socialist EU delete according to which of her prejudices is on display) it’s not a monument to high class discourse or thought but strangely enthralling nonetheless. Ms Fuller is clearly not the sharpest knife in the draw, but this combination of racism and breathtaking ignorance really takes the biscuit.

She really has surpassed herself with this effort, in which she defends the vigilante mobs who have torched a number of Roma camps in Italy on the grounds that “the main issue started when someone from Romania murdered and raped an Italian woman”. So that it makes it ok, eh Annabelle? This very crude eye-for-an-eye approach is pretty low stuff, but sadly typical of the hate-filled, knee-jerk reaction of UKIP politics.

What is happening in Italy (ie a rise in the rule of the mob and far-right) is scary. Moreover, she complains at the comparison of some Italians to fascists Рfair enough, this is slightly wild hyperbolé. But lets not forget that the recent Mayoral elections in Rome (won by a former member of the Italian Social Movement), were celebrated with fascist salutes and chanting.

It’s also amusing that she sees fit to criticise the line -

“I also hope the Slovenian Presidency will find some courage to tell the Italian Government that anti-Romani actions are forbidden to take place in the EU”.

Well – the Roma are a race (and, despite what Trixy/Annabelle might think) they are not subhuman and so discriminating against them is racism. What else can be inferred from this other than Trixy/Annabelle is being a touch racist?

Ah well, UKIPwatcher is consoled by the fact that Trixy (Ms Fuller) obviously has a very limited understanding of European politics otherwise she wouldn’t write this unutterable garbage.

Brilliant. More like this please.

I think the phrase is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, rather than "draw".

Whatever one thinks of the blogsite you target, I don't think anyone let alone Trixy herself would claim that she knows anything about European politics. That is so not her point.

Time to get rid of Corbett.

It's nothing but a freeloading undemocratic ponce.

Yep, Labour are sinking and next June Corbett will be no more.
Not the cry for a coastguard or lifeboat,more the need for the postman and postal votes.

Anon 3.23, I'll go a grand that Corbett will still be there next June while Farage, Mote, Knapman and the rest of his mates will be gone.

Looks like Nige has lost another MEP from his ranks. There'll soon be only him left.

Corbett's a gonna.Word on the street is he's now on the radar and the natives are restless.

Anon 10:48,I like politcal betting and this is a sure-fire bet that I'll be wagering on.
The only conserlation, as you pointed out is some of those ukippers will also be packing their bags.

So, as Ronnie said to the other Corbett,"It's goodnight from me,and it's goodnight from him."

Well-placed UKIP sources are indicating that the party has resigned itself to losing all but two at most seats at the next election. It seems that Nigel is one of the two who might survive for just one more term.

The foolish 'author' of More to life than shite, sorry shoes, can't even spell the name of the Irish Prime Minister despite claiming to be in the 'middle' of the No campaign.

Sources are predicting a very bad time for Corbett as well as ukip.
Next June the shite is going to hit the fan,hence corbett likely to be wearing brown trousers.
The party's over,especially for Liebour and corbett.
Adios as they will be saying in Yorkshire.LOL

What's all this about the Irish No campaign giving UKIP the cold shoulder?

Anonymous said...

Not a good idea for ukip to stick their nose into the Irish no campaign.

Mind you, the Irish yes campaign are not to happy with corbett & co, for opeming their mouths and showing how undemocratic they are.

More to Life than Shit is now refusing to take comments from people who disagree with her. So why don't we post some factual corrections here instead. Her latest blooper is refer to the EP office in Canberra in condemning some Tory MEP for junketing. There is no EP office in Canberra.

UKIPWatcher said...

Yeah, it's a shame she doesn't allow comments pointing out her crass mistakes

The Roma aren't Romanians. Doesn't she know this?

So according to UKIPwatch, if Annabelle Fuller is anti Nazi/Fascist then she is exhibiting prejudice. BTW did Anonymous 10:48 PM pay up?
