The new Tory party: unapologetic over slavery
So much for the brand spanking new caring, compassionate Conservative party. Tory backbencher Sir Peter Tapsell today criticised the Prime Minister for having the gall to apologise for Britain's role in the slave trade.
And guess what, when he was called forward to speak, the wannabe Fascist was cheered to the rafters by his jack-booted cronies - their loudest cheer of the day.
His voice dripping with venom, Tapsell lambasted the Prime Minister for "saying sorry to foreigners" over slavery.
It's come to something when a Tory MP from two centuries ago - William Wilberforce, lead campaigner for the abolition of the slave trade - is seen as more progressive than the current Conservative MP and apologist for slavery Peter Tapsell.
One thing's for sure, the honours system will certainly need looking into now, hopefully resulting in Tapsell being stripped of his Knighthood!
