Michael Gove was he a stud???
Are the Mundell’s thin skinned??
Is their umbrage induced by the need of a photo opportunity??
Is the Unionist media upping the hype aiding the Tory party political agenda??
Is the young Tory Chairman’s behaviour, “dressing up as Madeleine McCann” at a party more or less offensive??
What about Oliver Mundell’s attack (reducing her to tears) on a disabled female fellow student whilst he was running for President of the Student’s Union
Homophobic or Toryphobic??
4 Mar 2017: David Mundell and son Oliver condemn “wings over Scotland” Tweet as homophobic and disgusting
The Scottish Secretary said: “This sort of behaviour has to be called out. We’re not going to face down homophobia unless we call out people who practice it.”
His son Oliver, who was elected to the Scottish Parliament last May, branded the “Wings Over Scotland” comment “absolutely disgusting and unacceptable” and added: “I get a lot of abuse online. There are certain individuals you don’t want to give oxygen to but sometimes comments people make just cross the line.”
The blogger insisted that the tweet was “Toryphobic” rather than homophobic.
Matthew Lewis with David cameron
10 Jan 2009: A Tory has caused outrage after boasting about dressing up as Madeleine McCann at a party.
Matthew Lewis bragged his costume would include a blonde wig, pink pyjamas, teddy bear and vial of fake blood.The student, 23, is a leading Young Conservative and was recently photographed with party leader David Cameron. But in a series of foul comments, he joked with friends – two of them Tory members – online about his tasteless outfit..
Yesterday, the family of missing Madeleine, five, blasted his actions and said they had caused great hurt. Spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “The offensiveness of his comments is almost beyond belief. It’s a disgrace Madeleine’s name and image should be made fun of in this way.” Labour MP Steve McCabe added: “I’ve heard some pretty revolting things, but this takes the biscuit.”
Lewis had exchanges with friends on Facebook about how he needed a blonde wig to complete his outfit. A fellow Tory asked him: “Is this a cunning (Baldrick style) plan to obtain the reward money?” In one especially offensive exchange, Lewis was asked, “You like small girls, ey?” He replied: “I like to dress up as them, yes.”
On New Year’s Day, after the party, Lewis told another Conservative Future member online: “There was a brief moment I thought I might have gone too far with the costume, but it was OK.”
Unbelievably, one party guest was apparently dressed as Baby P, the boy who died in Haringey, London, after horrific abuse.
Last night, Lewis made a grovelling apology. He said in a statement: “I completely regret my behaviour and cannot express how sorry I am for the incredible hurt I have caused. While my actions were not meant to be malicious, I understand the pain they brought.”
The fancy dress stunt outraged Deputy Prime Minister Caroline Spelman MP who, as Tory Party chairman at the time, said ‘This offensive behaviour is not only shocking but intolerable and completely unacceptable. There is no place for this sort of person in the Party”.
Madeleine went missing in Portugal in May 2007 and has yet to be found. (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/tory-causes-outrage-for-sick-madeleine-370294)
2 Feb 2012: Young Conservative who sparked outrage after going to a party dressed as blood-stained Madeleine McCann is back working for the Tories
A Young Conservative who provoked outrage when he dressed-up as a blood-stained Madeleine McCann for a fancy dress party is back working for the Tories on European policy, it has emerged. Matthew Lewis had apparently been expelled from the Party in 2009 by officials who were appalled by a series of entries about ‘my bad taste party outfit’ on his Facebook page. But a biography next to a photo of a smiling Lewis on the Young Conservative Europe Group website states that he is in his second term as its chairman.
