Are Labour going to gift Stoke to the Ukips?

Storm as Muslim voters in Stoke are warned they will go to HELL unless they vote Labour at the upcoming by-election in shocking anti-Ukip text messages

Muslim voters in Stoke are being warned they will go to hell unless they vote Labour at the upcoming by-election.

The text message was sent to members of the seven percent Muslim community in Stoke Central and demanded that they vote for Labour's Gareth Snell, in a bid to stop Ukip from winning.

The controversial text, which has been circulated via WhatsApp by Labour activist Navid Hussain, even states that voting for the Liberal Democrats' Muslim candidate, Dr Zulfiqar Ali, will result in the 'anti-Islamic Ukip'.

The latest controversy comes after it Mr Snell was engulfed in a sexism row following a series of tweets emerged where he ranted at 'b****y,' 'annoying' and 'stupid' women online.

The tweets show the Labour candidate used to post regular angry comments targeting women on TV.

During the following week's episode he posted another outburst of anger, writing on Twitter: 'Squabbling sour faced ladies on my TV. Is this the #apprentice or Loose Women.'

Mr Snell issued an apology today after his tweets came to light, insisting he now regrets posting them.

When is this election?

The Mail? Don't think I'll bother.

Agaliarept - 16 Feb 2017 09:22:38 (#4 of 160)

When is this election?

23rd Feb.

I have to admit that this by-election is filling me with great mirth. The breadth and quality of the stupidity and incompetence on display is worthy of a West End farce.

It's not really an election that has attracted the best and brightest that's for sure.

I watched some of Loose Women yesterday. It **is** Daily Mail TV. They had that stupid girl on who is suing Camelot for allowing her to win the lottery and were feeding her lots of probing and insightful questions, not including 'What the actual fuck is wrong with you, you silly woman?'

I think we'll take this story seriously when you find a source that isn't banned by Wikipedia.

invicta - 16 Feb 2017 09:30:53 (#9 of 160)

Since when did Wikipedia become the arbiter of fact, ffs? It's full of nonsense.

xDiggy - 16 Feb 2017 09:31:40 (#10 of 160)

That may be, but you still can't fault their judgment with regard to the Daily Mail.

col2001 - 16 Feb 2017 09:32:02 (#11 of 160)

Is it, though?

It seems remarkably accurate to me.

It's not really an election that has attracted the best and brightest that's for sure.

That's no way to talk about The Incredible Flying Brick.

I think we'll take this story seriously when you find a source that isn't banned by Wikipedia.

Here's the part about the offensive Tweets and apology:

The story is new but I'll spend a few mins finding another source so you can put your hobby horse away.

thisonehasalittlehat - 16 Feb 2017 09:33:00 (#13 of 160)

It's pretty accurate for most kinds of articles. Celeb biogs and political hot topics less so.

There are studies.

thisonehasalittlehat - 16 Feb 2017 09:33:26 (#14 of 160)

Wikipedia this is not the mail.

Agaliarept - 16 Feb 2017 09:34:44 (#15 of 160)

Here's the Express. They aren't banned by Wiki as far as I know.

http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/768066/Stoke-by-election-texts-order-Muslim-voters-to-vote-Labour-or-go-to-hell

I guess it must've happened then.

xDiggy - 16 Feb 2017 09:35:17 (#16 of 160)

Lol. The Mail and The Express.

Agaliarept - 16 Feb 2017 09:36:15 (#17 of 160)

Lol. The Mail and The Express.

Ok, you tell me where you would like this story full of quotes and reports to the police to appear?

Rendered - 16 Feb 2017 09:36:40 (#18 of 160)

Those funny Muslims, eh readers?

zardoz - 16 Feb 2017 09:38:54 (#19 of 160)

Still a few laughs to be had at the expense of the thick racist northerner community, eh?

lusmeri1 - 16 Feb 2017 09:39:06 (#20 of 160)

'While another divisive text said: “Every Racist is voting for UKIP. UKIP are a Racist Party, who are hate Muslims and Islam.”'

Shocking lies!
