Labour's Flather faux pas

Labour's Flather faux pas

It appears Labour were a little quick off the blocks to admonish a Tory peer for backing Aussie election guru Lynton Crosby's alleged rant about "f***ing Muslims".

A number of bloggers and tweeters were up in arms this morning about 'Conservative' Baroness Flather's claim that all Muslims were on benefits  - despite the fact Flather sits as a crossbencher.

Labour's Michael Dugher rushed out a press release to slam the “Conservative peer’s shocking comments”, and called on David Cameron to take firm action against his rogue Baroness.

Forty minutes after telling the Westminster press that Flather’s remarks had proven, once again, that the Tories will “never be the One Nation party”, Dugher retracted his erroneous comments.
