James Macintyre of the New Statesman wrote an article today entitled Tory racism: crystal clear. He claimed that Daniel Hannan had made racist remarks about Barack Obama. He received 29 comments - the vast majority telling him how badly he had got it wrong. He even said that the Conservative party was in his opinion a racist organisation. He said: "I believe the Conservative Party is institutionally racist. I always have done."
The article now seems to have disappeared. When James didn't like the comments he was receiving, he then launched into an attack on bloggers for leaving comments - asking: do you have jobs?
I wonder who pulled the article, James, or his boss? No doubt Daniel Hannan wasn't too pleased to be labelled a racist.
The article can still be viewed in the cache.
