After a week where he’s managed to offend people with mental health problems not just once, but twice, Harrow East Tory politician Bob Blackman has done it again.
According to the Harrow Times, Blackman, who hopes to take on incumbent Labour MP Tony McNulty, called his rival ‘mad’.
McNulty had been rather quick to criticise Blackman for his slips, telling Stanmore Politics yesterday that he should apologise.
But it seems clear that Blackman didn’t mean the remarks offensivly, he just needs to follow the maxim of ‘think before you speak’.
Stern talk necessary from Conservative HQ?
