Gobby young Tory shot down in flames

A young man came to last night’s BBC Question Time in a sharp suit. And he came prepared, with one line he believed would destroy any Labour-supporting panellist. But hip-hop artist Akala didn’t even flinch before returning fire, with some painful home truths. The showdown is a masterclass in shutting down everyday racism.
Showdown

The young man – who Twitter users have branded ‘Young Tory’ – launched into what he clearly believed was his killer question:

Does the failure of Labour to gain ground in traditional working class towns – like Dudley and Bolton – suggest that Corbyn-mania is dead?

Akala smiled for a moment before making an observation that stopped Young Tory in his tracks:

I think the phrasing of the question itself is interesting. ‘Traditional working class towns’. Is Hackney not a traditional working class town? Is Tottenham not a traditional working class town? Is Moss Side not a traditional working class town? I just think the phrasing of the question is interesting.

Akala then asked the questioner what he meant by ‘traditional’ working class towns. Young Tory suddenly realised that everyone in the room understood precisely what he meant. When he said “traditional working class towns”, he meant the ‘white’ vote that switched to the Tories as UKIP collapsed. And that’s not a good look. Because that doesn’t mean so-called Corbyn mania is dead, it means racism and xenophobia are still very much alive – and voting Tory.

Just in case anyone hadn’t worked that out, Akala asked Young Tory:

What is the criteria by which you’ve picked your ‘traditional’ working class towns?

As the SKWAWKBOX covered earlier (video here), the weekly Tory ‘plant’ on BBC Question Time didn’t fare too well last night, being embarrassingly owned by music star Akala when he tried to pontificate about ‘traditional working class towns’.

It was painfully obvious that the plant – called upon by name by David Dimbleby but with a name not easy to make out – didn’t have a clue about working class anything – and the SKWAWKBOX can exclusively identify who he is and why he seems out of touch with working class people and issues.

Hallam Mark William Sevier-Burnapp is the son of a former Tory councillor in Kettering and already has his own company to play with: Humble Break Limited, although it doesn’t seem to have a website under that name.

Hallam, as he is known, has a Twitter account containing tweets and retweets of Tory politicians and some mockery of Labour Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott – de rigueur for your young Tory, of course.

Yet again, BBC Question Time guarantees a question to a Tory – called upon by name by host David Dimbleby – with a pre-prepared question and has been busted doing so. Happily, it didn’t end well this time.

He thinks Bolton is the only working class town in the UK, what a plank.
