Reade & Right

“THE HOODIES TORIES WANT US ALL TO HUG,” says the headline above a picture on Brian Reade’s page in the Mirror.

Brian – who appears at the top of his page smiling with his head resting on his hand is a way that says “Tsk! It’s a funny life, eh” – shows us a picture of two Klu Klux Klansmen.

Brian equates the KKK with the Tories. In the picture one of the hooded fiends says “Sting ‘em up”; his hooded colleague says “Send ‘em back”.

One of the pair could be Brian’s uncles. Back in August, in talking about Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitic rant, Brian harked back to his youth. “Thirty years ago, I stayed with my Alabaman uncle Bud, who was such a proud member of the Ku Klux Klan that he turned up for breakfast one morning dressed peaked-hat to toe in his outfit,” recalled Brian.

Uncle Bud then told Brian how the Jews were the “lowest of the low”. Brian was appalled; so appalled that he uses the Klan to hammer the Tories, a group led at the last election by a Jew.

“Well, set my genitals alight with a torch of liberty and throw me down a disused mine shaft,” writes Brian. “The Tories have changed beyond recognition.”

Indeed. Now they look like Brian’s uncle. And they might take him up on his invitation…
