Tory Trauma: Cyanosis of the You Tube, Painful

Following the debacle with the Tory Hospitals Chaos in Our Hands the boys in blue have another cross to bear. On August 16 Tim Ireland at Bloggerheads begins unravelling a Tory Tissue of Tosh. About clumsy "viral" videos that seem to track back towards the highest echelons of the failing institution that is the Tory Party.

Already at death's door this could provide the coup de grace rather than the expected coup de theatre. On August 19 "SexyBritain", from which the above - click to enlarge - is a grab, is launched on YouTube. It is pathetic. People drunk or playing drunk. A rude Streetsy pop video. Some Down With Da Kidz comments written by marketing executives.

A chap called Graeme from Scotland provides a pretty reasonable resume (in around 5 mins) of the cynicism and inaccuracy and sheer ineptness of the whole exercise. And while a couple of these items are getting plenty of plays this will not drive Tory votes from Da Kidz. Remarkably Graeme also turned up in the heart of the Sexy YouTube Channel with this piece of substance (BNP and Racism, c 10 mins) around which the Tories hang their tawdry rags. I'm pretty sure Graeme will be unhappy about this :

It can be viewed also - for ever and ever - via the Tory yoof site's permalink.

Yesterday, August 22 2007 Marketing Week step up to the plate to provide cover for Mr Saatchi with a likely story about how this is all down to some hot-headed and sadly un-nameable Tory back benchers.

But today comments at LDV indicate that the trail back to official Tories is pretty much complete, already.

I've stuck a comment up in the discussion and will blog about this in a moment or three. Which turns out to mean in 12 hours or so.

These are the comments and links that go with Graeme's second video:

UK Government ethnic breakdown of prison population statistics:

World prison population statistics:

Summary: There's no proof that crime is genetic, there is no "rape gene", there's proof however that race does not dictate levels of criminality as all western countries have varying levels of criminality within white populations alone!

"According to its constitution, the BNP is "committed to stemming and reversing the tide of non-white immigration and to restoring, by legal changes, negotiation and consent the overwhelmingly white makeup of the British population that existed in Britain prior to 1948." The BNP proposes "firm but voluntary incentives for immigrants and their descendants to return home," it advocates the repeal of all anti-discrimination legislation, and restricts party membership to "indigenous British ethnic groups deriving from the class of 'Indigenous Caucasian'"[11]; the party also accepts Caucasians with non-British ancestry that are assimilated into one of these ethnicities. The BNP believes that there are significant biological racial differences that determine the behaviour and character of individuals. The party also asserts that preference for one's own ethnicity is a part of human nature.(BNP 2005 election manifesto)"
