Show ‘Inappropriate Comments’ The Red Card

Latest in Wirral Councillor #racism and alleged #racism as a very WHITE local Labour party comes apart at the seams. Their ugly hypocrisy is all being ignored by Frank Field and the local captured newspapers.


Red Card 009Tony tells the truth : ‘The darkness around us is very deep”   Pic : John Brace

Little did we know when we published our Sorrento Shame : Holidaymakers claim they faced ‘racist abuse’ from ex – Wirral Mayoress  story ,that with some perverse synchronicity, it coincided with the 3rd annual ‘Show Racism The Red Card’ campaign.

To mark the event at the full meeting of Wirral Council held on 16th October Cllr Tony Norbury recited a poem.  Fortunately John Brace was able to capture the recital for posterity HERE . Now we can’t say it was one of the greatest orations we’ve ever heard but for those of you with strong stomachs and no gag reflexes it’s well worth enduring – if only for the closing line. Which was :

The darkness around us is very deep 

No seriously, Cllr Norbury uttered those immortal words , seemingly without…

    I’m not so sure this Councillor hasn’t got some moral or even lawful responsibility to actually incriminate his woman and make a formal complaint himself. Let me develop my point.
    If the offence were committed upon Blighty it’d be easier for me to develop an argument and perhaps persuade that he should report the offence because he was present and would have to acknowledge that he to was personally offended by her words and actions. If he couldn’t tolerate racist behaviour on the Wirral because of his elected Office, then how could it be tolerable whilst in Italy on holiday. What’s more, being fully cognisant that the targets of the racist attack were British citizens of colour and being a British citizen himself and fully aware of British public order legislation, he would surely know that if the matter had taken place here in Britain there would be no secreting this sorry episode.
    I’d argue that albeit this took place in a foreign land and he could reasonably argue that he had no knowledge of Italian Law and their public order legislation that protects citizens from racist abuse, he must be aware that in any modern democracy aiding and abetting an offender, in this case remaining silent and even perhaps offering it some tacit approval by saying nothing, only adds to the depth of the hole he now finds himself in.
    Given his public Office and the public interest that’s more than justified by his and her position in Wirral society, albeit by personal rather than political association, I cannot see how this matter can be sat on and left to become a topic of disinterest.
    Furthermore, being a recipient of public money and presumably a fully paid up follower to the zero tolerance attitude WBC has toward racism, how is it possible to argue that this matter should be ignored simply because the crime took place in a land beyond British jurisdiction which I’m guessing is the only reason this affair has not been addressed in our homeland. It doesn’t make sense does it?
    Quite frankly I can’t see how it’s possible to avoid the issue without there being a conspiracy of silence and a future chance that many other people have now tainted themselves by sitting back and doing nothing. In short, how can you hold up a red card and ask to be taken seriously. Indeed, how can anyone pictured holding up their red card be given any credibility if they know about the events that took place during the holiday in Italy.
