Written Answers - Cabinet Office: Unemployment: Wolverhampton (21 Oct 2010)
Paul Uppal: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many children
were living in workless households in Wolverhampton South West
constituency in (a) 2005, (b) 2007 and (c) 2010.
He knows, from the answers given a few days ago, that statistics aren't generally collected by constituency. Clearly Uppal has two objectives here: to prove to the racists in the Tory Party that he's just as unpleasant and selfish as them, despite being an immigrant, and to achieve an increased profile.
Jews have a phrase for people like this, the 'self-hating' Jew. Converts, too, are often far more hardline than people who grew up with a set of beliefs, as though they have something to prove. Uppal seems to be applying for the job of Judas Goat: the animal kept at abattoirs to persuade those destined for the chop that everything's fine. Labour had a couple of those - every time they wanted to bring in some deeply racist legislation, they'd get an Asian MP like Khalid Mahmood to do the publicity, some creepy, ambitious, selfish scumbag ready to betray his people for personal preferment. I always hoped they slept very badly, but I suspect it's not true.
Uppal seems completely immune to shame or intellectual argument - he's determined to waste our money in pursuit of his own interests and there's nothing we can do about it.
