Islamphobic comments okay as long as you don’t break the five second rule

Lee Anderson has had the Tory whip removed because he broke the five second rule. It is okay to use islamphobic, or any other phobic, speech in the Tory party as long as you apologise within five seconds. He never apologised so he gets the stern look.

Anderson likes to offend people and come up with the sort of statements that excite typical GB News viewers. Ignorant. misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, an all round perfect Tory.

On GB News last week he claimed that “Islamists” have “got control of London” and its mayor, Sadiq Khan. He also stated that “He’s given our capital city away to his mates”, “I don’t actually believe that the Islamists have got control of our country, but what I do believe is they’ve got control of Khan, and they’ve got control of London.”

The Tory party waited nearly 48 hours for him to apologise before taking any action. He had clearly broken the five second rule, and the five minute rule and even the five hour rule. The Tories thought that coming up with a five day rule would be pushing it. On Saturday a Tory spokesperson stated that “Following his refusal to apologise for comments made yesterday, the chief whip has suspended the Conservative whip from Lee Anderson MP.”.

So kicked out of the Parliamentary Conservative party for not apologising. Not for saying what he said but for not saying sorry.
