Mitt has been saved in Britain as the Tories turn toward their own idiot
Olympics opening ceremony was 'multicultural crap', Tory MP tweets

David Cameron will face pressure to remove the Tory whip from the Conservative MP Aidan Burley after he tweeted that the Olympics opening ceremony was "multicultural crap".

Burley, who was sacked as a ministerial aide last year after he took part in a Nazi-themed stag party in the French Alps, described Danny Boyle's work as "the most leftie opening ceremony I have ever seen".

Downing Street sources moved quickly to distance themselves from Burley's tweets. "Clearly we don't agree," one source said.

The tweets will be toxic for the prime minister who has been praised for his handling of the preparations of the Olympics. Burley's outburst will fuel suspicions that some members of the Conservative party have unreconstructed views which fail to recognise the pivotal contribution to society made by black and minority ethnic Britons. Boyle illustrated this with a section devoted to MV Empire Windrush, the ship which brought many passengers from Jamaica to start a new life in Britain.

1. Maybe they bought the Anglo Saxon genes crap Romney's advisor was peddling.

Will the right change the name of English muffins, now that the Brits dissed Mittens?

I couldn't bring myself to order Freedom fries when I was in Florida for the Red Sox's spring training a few years ago--and I love fries.

I would have a much easier time giving up Freedom muffins.
