The First Heckler

The First Heckler

of the British election has let Prime Minister Gordon Brown have it, via The Telegraph.

LGF and TPM are searching for a Tea Party connection, Andrew Sullivan thinks Palin had something to do with it, Paul Krugman considers it an incitement to violence, Count Frankula is convinced there is racism involved (Brown likes Obama, therefore), and on and on and on.

Sounds like he could be a Tea Partier over on this side of the pond. Well-spoken, thoughtful, and with a valid, relevant issue. Thankfully, the Telegraph is giving him air time; if he was here, he'd be smeared as a racist-terrorist-right-wing-extremist-mobster.

Very good!! Thanks for sharing. I'm glad the public can still speak out in England without such slanderous propaganda aimed at shutting the people up.

Heckle, "to harass (a public speaker, performer, etc.) with impertinent questions, gibes, or the like; badger." I copied that from a dictionary. That British man, without vetting, staff assistance, teleprompter and under stress clearly stated his grievance politely after Prime Minister Gordon Brown scurried away like a cockroach in the pantry. That man was hardly impertinent in his question.

Well then let the politician hide himself behind the limo tint.

Well spoken, yes, but he needs to think outside the box. Home-school the little guy!
