Emily Thornberry is as much a snob as I am

Emily ThornberryAs a man from inner-city Liverpool living in the former Shadow Attorney General’s constituency for the last four years, I know personally her views on the working class.

I was angry when I heard she had resigned from Labour’s front bench, and more so when all the parasites jumped on the bandwagon including some from her own party.

For nearly five years, Emily has been on my side fighting many causes and not once has she ever failed or let me down. I say this, as someone from a working class background and proud of it.

Do I think she looks down at people like me? Of course not.

I don’t have time for politicians of all parties, but I do for her. Whatever party she belonged to, I would vote for it because she is my MP. She has been and will remain an amazing Member of Parliament who actually works hard for her constituents, any no doubt the working class in the London borough.

Many of those having a go at Emily are trying to divert attention away from UKIP’s success from the Conservatives at the Rochester and Strood by-election, by attacking her.

I cringed earlier, as I watched the Prime Minister David Cameron give an interview saying … “Emily Thornberry is one of Ed’s Miliband’s closest allies and aides, and effectively what this means, is Ed Miliband’s Labour Party sneers at people who work hard, who are patriotic, who love their country and I think that’s completely appalling.”

Two words came to mind, Andy Coulson, his friend and aide who has just been released from prison.

I don’t know what it is about the British, but we love seeing the downfall and public humiliation of an individual. We actively sensationalise things, for our own perverted reasoning.

I’m yet to see or understand, what was so offensive about the picture Ms Thornberry tweeted. And further, why she apologised. If the Labour leader Ed Miliband did ask her to resign, shame on him. Any future Prime Minister needs to be robust, who doesn’t bow to pressure over something so insignificant.

I do know though, that all the armchair judges have found Ms Thornberry guilty for crimes against humanity, the working class, St George and the rest. I could go on, but I won’t.

Before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean.
