This morning, on Trevor Phillips on Sunday, Labours Deputy leader Angela Rayner was questioned after it was found out that she attacked the Tories at a Labour activist rally, saying: “we cannot get any worse than a bunch of scum, homophobic, racist, misogynist, absolute pile of banana Republic, Etonian piece of scum.”
This filthy foul mouth attack on the Tories was made after the chair of the Labour conference, Margaret Beckett, asked for civility at the opening of the Labour conference. That call for civility was clearly thrown out of the window after it was revealed what the deputy leader told lefty Labour activists.
During the Trevor Phillips Interview, Angela Rayner tried to justify herself for saying what she said. Angela said it was late at night, and it was her own “passionate way” of sparking “fire in the belly” of the Labour activists.
The truth is, the Labour hierarchy will say one thing in the public domain, hoping to win your vote and say another thing within the party to ramp up hatred towards anyone who supports the Tories.
Former Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn’s second in command, John McDonald, was also asked whether he found what Angela Rayners said was acceptable. John laughed, saying: “Have you not heard some of my speeches, Trevor? Sometimes I embarrass myself.”
