Tories accuse army of 'saga of atrocities'
3/05/2010

Sick Tories have accused British troops of carrying out a "saga of atrocities" in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In a leaflet specially designed to be distributed in Muslim areas, the Tories say Labour has shown its "true colours" in its wars overseas.

The leaflet says: "We have in front of us a whole saga of atrocities committed in Iraq, in Afghanistan."

It adds: "As if this was not enough, Labour allowed the Israeli Government to create havoc in Lebanon and Gaza in Palestine, destroying their infrastructure and maiming thousands of innocent civilians.

"The Labour Government did nothing, absolutely nothing for a number of days, while the Israelis carried on their inhuman killing of innocent men, women and children."

The leaflet states: "Published on behalf of Blackburn Conservatives."

The Tories did not deny the leaflet was theirs but said: "These views do not represent the Conservative Party and we do not condone them."

I don't think this has anything to do with the Conservative party nationaly, just a few of them in Blackburn. Bloody stupid leaflet to put out though. I am voting Conservative this time not because I rate Cameron but because my local MP is a Conservative and seems a damned good one (MP).

Any chance we could see the whole leaflet before we flag the bus down? I'm not convinced frankly.

It's a terrible leaflet, there are no pictures on it.

Non-story then unless you don't like the Conservative party.

Can you point out to me where it says the british army committed these atrocities.

With the leaflet also referring to atrocities committed in Palestine in the same sentence I would read that it is referring to the fact that the government has allowed actions to occur which destabalise these countries through not having a good plan or poor management. If they did have good plans then many of the issues we have today could have been avoided.

The local branch of the conservatives just write poorly laid out leaflets.

Would the local Conservatives happen to be from the religion of peace also?

I think my vote will go to a party that doesn't pander to anti semitism!!

Yep, because until this point you were out there pounding the streets supporting the Tory cause.
You are shall we say a little "transparent" in your outrage. 4 posts and this is one of them.

Do you define any criticism of the government of Israel as automatically anti-semitic ?

Are Israeli citizens who protest about their governments actions in Gaza anti-semitic ?

Well they weren't getting my vote anyway.

aaaah imagine the outrage on this board if it had been a lib dem leaflet, or labour had pulled something similar off

Ozzy - where exactly does it mention the Army?

Looks to me like it is very unofficial - no Conservative Party branding for a start. Could it be that some over enthusiastic junior activist has sent this thing out without otaining permission from either the candidate or the agent?

All seems very quiet, I reckon the Tories are investigating this and in particular the individual that published it - Nu Labour placeman ???? Surely not.

Something about this does not ring true. It sounds like something Islam for UK would put out, poorly written emotive nonsense.

It accuses Jack Straw, who is the MP for Blackburn, of insulting “our religion and culture and…our sisters and mothers” by refusing to hold meetings with women constituents wearing a full veil. “We should not forget that today they are criticising our women’s(sic) veil, tomorrow it will be ou caps and our beards they will attack,”

I hope the Tories take decisiive action against these mongs - own goal this close to polling day!!

Labour or Libdem will be succesful in Blackburn regardless. Have not been up north for a while but if anyone here is in Blackburn, in "certain" areas where there is a predominant demograph - look what posters are displayed in the house windows.

Biraderi system rules there.
