Tory MP Aidan Burley has criticised the success of the opening Olympics ceremony saying the efficient organisation and smooth running of the operation was due to ‘leftie’ multiculturalism and demanding a return to more traditional right-wing British values of being shambolic and crap.
His comments caused a storm when he made the comment on Twitter after the main show element of the ceremony came to a close as the athletes’ parade began:
Thank God the athletes have arrived! Now we can move on from this leftie multicultural success and get back to the more traditional British right-wing omnishables we’ve become used to under this government.
The tweet on Friday night came as one of a series of negative postings blaming the surprising lack of shambolic, unprofessional organisation during the ceremony on ‘leftie multicuralism’:
The most popular successful opening ceremony I have ever seen – more popular than Beijing, the capital of a communist state! Whatever next? British athletes winning medals!!?
Burley, who was recently forced to resign from a ministerial post after being photographed at a stag do where his fellow revellers wore Nazi uniforms and performed Nazi salutes, insisted that he was misunderstood, and quickly tried to backtrack:
Seems my tweet has been misunderstood. I was talking about the unBritish way the ceremony was successful rather than the more right-wing completely crap way of doing things as epitomised by companies like G4S.
