Lunatic Tebbit blames “buggery” for fatness…

05/29/2004

The new caring version of the Conservative party doesn’t inspire that much faith in me. I know they’re all multicultural this and “ooh happy gay people” that, but all it really takes is someone like Lord Tebbit to pull back the Transylvanian’s cape to reveal the genuine sentiments of the Old Guard Tories. On the Thursday morning edition of the Today programme, Lord Tebbit says the cause of obesity is “buggery” (RAM). Having said that the cause of obesity is directly the consequence of a decline in family life he continues:

And the government is pursuing the break down of family life. We’ve had one thing after the other… In the House of Lords at the moment we’ve got this gay marriage bill at the moment – that doesn’t help – and we’ve not only got an epidemic of obesity … we’ve got a huge problem of AIDS and the government’s attitude is to do everything it can to promote buggery – the two are somewhat intimately connected!

Weirdly we’re left with Boris Johnson having to save the day and say, “I don’t think you can really say that gay marriage is responsible for obesity, with the best will in the world…”
