That’s their own fault for not working hard enough.

Just another GRcadian who saw too many Christmas movies as a child. Another orphan of a bankrupt culture who thinks he's John McClane.

As it was always going to be - but it was important to get "the narrative" out there for the supporters to parrot/believe...

Reported that Godfrey tweet for being offensive. Not that it will achieve much but there you go.

He absolutely is a banana split though.

Some of Bloom’s other achievements:

A few weeks after being appointed to the European Parliament's Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality on 20 July 2004, Bloom told an interviewer that, "no self-respecting small businessman with a brain in the right place would ever employ a lady of child-bearing age."[31] Around the same time, he said that "I just don't think [women] clean behind the fridge enough" and that "I am here to represent Yorkshire women who always have dinner on the table when you get home."[30][32] Bloom told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that his comments were "said for fun" to illustrate a more serious point, that equal-rights legislation was, he claimed, putting women out of work.[30]


In a piece for politics.co.uk in August 2013, Bloom attempted to set the record straight about his earlier comments on gender equality.[11] He argued against quotas for women in boardrooms, claimed that feminism was a "passing fashion" created by "shrill, bored, middle-class women of a certain physical genre" and that any men who supported feminism were "the slightly effete politically correct chaps who get sand kicked in their face on the beach." He said that women were better at "[finding] the mustard in the pantry" than driving a car.[


At the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Bloom was filmed in front of the Greenpeace flagship, Rainbow Warrior II, saying, "Here we have one of the most truly fascist boats since 1945, well done the French for sinking one of these things."[39][40] He was referring to the 1985 bombing of the ship's predecessor by French government agents in which Dutch photographer Fernando Pereira was killed. After criticism, the video was removed from Bloom's YouTube channel and he said he had forgotten about the death.[41]


On 24 November 2010, Bloom was ejected from the European Parliament after directing a Nazi slogan at German MEP Martin Schulz who was speaking in a debate on the economic crisis in Ireland. Bloom interrupted Schulz and shouted "Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer" at him.[11][44] He then proceeded to call the latter "an undemocratic fascist", a remark for which he was removed from the chamber. Labour MEP group leader Glenis Willmott described his behavior as "an insult to all those who have fought against fascism" whilst Liberal Democrat group leader Fiona Hall described him as a "national embarrassment".[44]


At the height of the 2009 parliamentary expenses scandal, Bloom complained about the lack of manners of the political class.[citation needed] On his website, he pointed out that, unlike many others, he would not employ family members in his parliamentary staff.[citation needed] Bloom later conceded that three members of his staff were also employed part-time at TBO, the company in which he is a major shareholder, and one of these is his wife's niece.[14] Bloom failed to declare his interest in TBO to European Parliament officials and in 2008 Bloom's company TBO was fined £28,000 by the Financial Services Authority for 'posing an "unacceptable risk" to customers'.[45] In August 2014, TBO were fined and ordered to pay more than £2 million in damages to a retired couple, having ignored their request for cautious financial planning and "gambled" almost all their clients' money on high risk investments with an almost complete loss.[46]


In July 2013, Bloom made a speech about Britain's foreign aid in which he referred to countries as "Bongo Bongo Land". [47] A video was passed to The Guardian newspaper.[48] A spokesman for UKIP was reported as saying that Bloom's remarks were being "discussed right at the very highest level of the party".[48] After refusing to apologise,[11] he later said he regretted the comments[49] but clarified it by saying that whilst he intended it to be derogatory, he regretted that it had caused offence and he didn't mean it to be racist.[11] Party leader Nigel Farage later asked him not to use the phrase again.[50]


In January 2014, broadcaster Michael Crick stated that while supporting the motion "Post-war Britain has seen too much immigration" in a debate at the Oxford Union, Bloom asked a disabled student who was speaking against the motion if he was Richard III.[52] According to Crick, Bloom told him that the student had taken his remark "in good spirit" with both sharing drinks during an after-debate reception, suggesting Crick confirm this with the student. Crick followed up the suggestion whereby the student accepted Bloom's version of events, stating that, although the comment was not "very nice," he and Bloom got on well, and that Bloom was "a very interesting man to talk to."[52] Fellow supporter of the motion, journalist and author Douglas Murray, described Bloom's comment as "gruesome"[53] and "the cruellest thing."[52]

Yeah but they'll never do it because it would be unpopular, obviously.
