This guy is pretty special, even for a Tory:
I've had my eye on him for a while, since he ran for MP in 2010 in my then constituency of Hammersmith (and lost). Yet he's seems to keep popping up at every opportunity to talk some nonsense now he's the great big Tory hope for London mayor.
As the guardian pointed out, Bailey's comments are straight out of the Peter Lilley speech at the 1992 Tory party conference with his "little list" of "young ladies who get pregnant just to jump the housing list"
He can do one. I'd sooner vote for Khan than this motherfucker.
Am I missing something? Where did he say that single mums should not be acceptable?
The shit changes but the flies stay the same.
Typing an I instead of a U thirteen years ago is hardly crime of the century, especially as they are next to each other on the keyboard. It is the Guardian though so their spade handle probably broke there and they called it a day.
He said it in a different article: Single mums 'should not be acceptable' says Tory Mayor of London candidate | Metro News
It's a weird claim to make these days. Having a baby does give you more points on the housing register, but being a single parent doesn't (as opposed to applying as a couple), and in London you'll still be waiting several years. It's just a bald-faced lie.
At least you know the sort of shit you're voting for with the tory, with Khan it's harder to know which of his principles are permanent
The hopper fare is good though
Doesn't weigh much against his bus cuts, support for shitty architecture and general gentrification.
Remove the queue jumping ( if it actually exists) by building half a million affordable & secured tenancy houses
And outlaw BTL
Aye I think he would find me very unacceptable indeed if he found himself in my company....
Funny, I was speaking with a mate the other day who is a single dad and he thinks Tories should not be acceptable.
I’m laughing my arse off here that somehow just by having a child you get a council property. Fucking hell these people are out of touch. Don’t they know how much more fucking desperate you need to be nowadays than just having a child
I must be doing something wrong then, because I became a single mum with 3 kids under 5 and one was a four month old baby, and here I am ten years later still on the council house waiting list
Well it probably does put person A with a child ahead of person B without a child, but I can't imagine women getting pregnant purely for that reason. It would be crazy. Still, he's a Tory.
I think me and Dave are still on the list from 16 years ago
Anyway, fuck blaming us single Mums. We’re the ones who’ve stuck by our kids to raise them, not walked away.
Shudda been an illegal immigrant, you'd have been immediately given a 5 bed mansion in Knightsbridge with free benefits, food vouchers and priority cosmetic surgery on the NHS because the EU.
Deleted my post because I was too incensed to argue coherently against this twat.
It was sarcasm as I hoped I wouldn't have to point out.
What's always struck me about this claim is that even if it is true (and I don't believe it is) that women get pregnant just to get a house. Then what the fuck does that say about the world we live it. Apparently the most poor young women feel they can hope for is to have a kid so they can live somewhere that is not an overpriced shithole.
Brighton has such dire housing needs that they changed their criteria in the last couple of years and I got removed from the council list, along with thousands of others, for having 'no housing need' (that being that we are already 'adequately housed' in ridiculously expensive private rentals).
Also, lol at all these wrong-un women, getting pregnant to get housing, with absolutely no input from men.
Ponder if the standard is going to use this thread of examples of abuse being through his way by Jeremy Corbryn supporter's
It's so old this kind of crap but still no less anger-inducing. From being brought up in a single parent family myself this bile was around way back when.
There are plenty of people who lap it up in ignorance but some of those who spout it from on high know very well it isn't so simple, they just hate the working class and will support or participate in anything that makes the lives of its poorest as difficult as possible, and make the rest more vulnerable to a slide into poverty.
The repellent Bailey is truly the gift that keeps on giving...
The Tories’ Candidate For London Mayor Once Wrote That “Good Looking” Girls “Tend To Have Been Around”
Shaun Bailey on record with an offensive remark ... surely not ?!?!?!?!?
Has he been reading our government's approved Sociology GCSE textbook? GCSE book pulled over black stereotyping
You forgot big tellies. It’s always big tellies.
Is this really the best person they could find? Did nobody spend five minutes doing a background check?
They’re so fucking shallow; they wanted to exorcise Goldsmith’s racist Crosby campaign and a BAME candidate, any BAME candidate would do. They just chose a thick, racist one.
They’re so fucking useless.
