Ryan Stephenson lost the Batley and Spens by-election because of the lack of support to the teacher hounded out of his job by a muslim mob. Why were the tories so silent?

I know why the Tories didn’t win at Batley and Spens; their candidate refused publicly and regularly to support the teacher driven from his home and job by a muslim mob for showing the cartoon of the prophet Mohammad to pupils while discussing blasphemy.
Ryan Stephenson is a local Yorkshire politician and should have been all over this issue. The others were. Why didn’t he give his wholehearted support? I think I know.

They basically gave Mr Stephenson a minder in the shape of a lady called Amanda Milling who is co-chairman of the Conservative. For reasons that were never clear to me she appeared to answer as many questions as Mr Stephenson.
She blocked all questions about the teacher and refused to allow Stephenson to be quizzed by Dan Hodges, the rather good columnist on the Mail on Sunday. So I blame her. Her background was marketing. Hope she was better at that than politics.
The voters wanted leadership on this important matter. They cared that the teacher and ghis family were driven from their home. They cared that he feared for his life so would not be going back to Batley Grammar now that an inquiry has cleared his name. They cared that a local minority were able to dicate what could and could not be taught in schools.
And yet the Tory voice was silent.
You may view George Galloway utterly vile but he gave the Muslim community something to cheer about when he spoke for Palestine and against Starmer. Similar for Kim Leadbeater. With her sister having been murdered by a Right-wing thug the community were right behind her in relation to local issues. And Mr Stephenson? Who knows. And it cost him.

The Galloway shadow is unlikely to go away. It may be three years away but every constituency that has a strong Muslim presence is now likely to have a candidate that is more likely to represent their views than the traditional home of Labour.
This will be a hammer blow in places like Bradford and Blackburn. Even worse news is that with the narrow win Starmer will stay in office. Can we have two minutes silence for the future of the Labour Party.
PS If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps und the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
