The leader of said brexit party looks fun;
She is best-known for failing to win Great Yarmouth for UKIP in the 2017 general election despite an innovative campaign which saw her brandish a large photograph of her Jamaican husband at one hustings in an attempt to demonstrate that ’Kippers were not racist, later telling Vice “I sleep with somebody who is black.”
It’s as a pundit, though, where Blaiklock comes into her own. On New Year’s Day she popped up on the Conservative Woman website where, under the headline “Hungry? Let them eat spuds!” she explained that poor people “cannot be bothered” to cook and claimed the use of food banks was causing obesity.
Blaiklock advised those on low income to heed the example of Sherpas in the Himalayas, who eat “practically nothing but boiled potatoes with a bit of salt and chilli on the side”, adding that “a visit to a food bank of the type that millions are supposed to rely on shows you the problem. It is full of cans of sweet custard and packets of PopTarts and the like. They do not stock raw potatoes because they might ‘go off’.”
In an earlier piece for the same website, she offered these enlightened thoughts on drug sentencing: “If you are 18 years old and you can either earn hundreds of thousands of pounds drug dealing or work at a minimum wage job for £8 an hour, which would you take?.. But if (an offender) knew that if he got caught dealing drugs or for murder he would automatically hang, would he be quite so keen? Maybe that minimum wage job in Tesco would start to look a little more appealing.”
