The Nether Regions

The blog that slips an affectionate hand between the thighs of the regional media

I’ve never voted Tory before, but we’ve got to eat puppies

with 2 comments

The nether regions does not endorse orchestrated campaigns of vandalism or crude insults, except for when they’re directed at Tory election candidates.

Failed Tory candidate Nick King ran crying to the Bournemouth Echo when his election posters were targeted as part of a ‘trail of destruction’ in the form of childish  graffiti. Incredible scenes.

Warm thanks to Gordon Skillen for this scan. Click the picture for the article and a Tory scowl in full-size glory.

Here are a few extracts:

It’s true you know: Tories do eat puppies. But only once they’ve stripped away their pension rights and privatised them first.

Bournemouth Echo, 11 May 2010 (story):

[…] On three occasions a clear trail of destruction could be traced. One night the act of vandalism went right from the Bakers Arms roundabout, through Upton, on to Broadstone and finally to Wimborne, where the stolen signs were dumped on Mr King’s front lawn.

He told the Echo the perpetrators even emailed him from an anonymous Gmail account to taunt him about their actions.

Oooh, get them…!

It’s unclear whether Nick King is suggesting these harmless daubings played a role in his failure to win the Dorset Mid & Poole North seat. A Liberal Democrat won anyway so it’s not clear why he’s bothered – it’s still a Tory seat, for fuck’s sake to be fair FFS TBF.

  1. Wonderful scenes there from Bournemouth. But why is he worried? The Yellow Tories got in so no damage done, apart from the vandalism of signs funded by Ashcroft’s filthy lucre.

    One of my abiding memories of the last election was the apparent contempt for the Tories and their signs. On a recent visit to the Lake District, every single piece of Tory propaganda, replete with painted egg Cameron, had “don’t be fooled” scrawled across. It must have taken the perpertrator weeks to get through them all. In Bolton, someone drew a cock and balls on the forehead of the hideous Thatcherite Deborah Dunleavy. Childish but ultimately fair scenes.

    It’s just a shame that, despite the japery, high jinks and tomfoolery, they still got in…
