Left uses Tory MP’s ‘multi-cultural crap’ Olympics tweet to bash Romney


Conservative MP Aidan Burley didn’t care for the Olympics opening ceremony.

The most leftie opening ceremony I have ever seen – more than Beijing, the capital of a communist state! Welfare tribute next?

Thank God the athletes have arrived! Now we can move on from leftie multi-cultural crap. Bring back red arrows, Shakespeare and the Stones!

The Twitter backlash was swift and severe.

I predict racist @AidanBurleyMP will resign by Wednesday – please see his tweets and help me make it happen. #noroomforracistsinUK

Remember folks, the next time @aidanburleymp slags off unions. He's just a massive racist. That's all.

But for many, slamming Burley wasn’t enough. It was also a great excuse to continue bashing GOP candidate Mitt Romney.

Hearing that @AidanBurleyMP account WAS hacked. By Mit Romney.

tomorrows news today @AidanBurleymp to confirm Mitt Romney used his twitter account – "it's the only explanation for those tweets"

Mitt Romney needs a running mate. Pity @AidanBurleyMP born in New Zealand not US. They'd make a great pair

Dear Mr Romney, Do you have a vacancy in your campaign team; @aidanburleymp will soon be available and has your eclectic outlook?

What, no tweets using Burley’s remarks to screech about Sarah Palin and George W. Bush? You guys are slacking!
