“We don’t mince our words up here” – Laura Pidcock
A working-class north-east caller into a right-wing radio station has set the airwaves alight with a fiery attack on the Tories and defence of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
The unnamed Labour supporter called into LBC radio and tore into Boris Johnson:
- “the biggest liar on two feet”
- “if we put him back into power, God help this country”
- “an absolute disgrace to this country”
- “I’m sick to the back teeth of all these Tory idiots saying they’re going to do fantastic for this country”
And the killer line was a clear-eyed assessment of the Tories’ intentions for the north:
They don’t give a damn about the north-east. They don’t give a damn what happens up here. All they’re bothered about is ‘Oh, I was mayor for London, I was mayor for London, I’ve done well for London…
The Tories have done nothing for the north-east and never will do. They’re an absolute shambles.
It’s unmissable – and dead right:
Labour front-bencher Laura Pidcock responded to the clip:
We don’t mince our words up here.
North-east, north-west, Midlands, Devon, Cornwall, Scotland, Wales – or anywhere else working-class people live – the message is simple:
The Tories have done nothing for you and never will do.
Well said lad.
