Draper the Toff? No! Never!

I see that Derek Draper has been banging on all weekend about how Iain Dale is a vicious racist because of the whole Thatcher Golliwog saga, which, when you look at it rationally, and with a non-partisan hat, really comes down to little more than generational and contextual use of linguistic formula - much like most of these little scandals that the Labour elite like to use to play up and make out that if you're right wing you are by definition a jackboot wearing Nazi in the closet.

On a different note, Derek Draper has also decided to actually start Twittering properly and posted something the other day at 4.42am that really did make me chuckle at the hypocritical Northern monkey. Putting aside the fact that the post was done in the wee small hours - presumably his new kid is keeping him up or he's jerking off to Internet porn - he chose to post the following,
# we are not toffs. we are NOT toffs. WE ARE NOT TOFFS!!!

4:42 AM Feb 6th from web.
If you follow the link you will see the results of a Google image search which shows Tories at their Black and White ball, most of them not wearing ties and wearing suits, with lots of ladies looking glamorous, as you'd expect at one of these bashes. Of course, for Draper, because they are Tories they must be toffs right?


Then I noticed a Twitter update from Phil Donohue is reply which linked to this this picture of Draper (presumably with his wife (I'm not into GMTV it's shit so wouldn't be able to recognise her even if I tried)), wearing a black tie on a red carpet and generally looking like a posh git himself. Does that make him a Toff? Well if you follow Draper's logic it does I guess.

On the other hand, what it really illustrates is how pathetically out of touch and hypocritical the northern monkey actually is. The common man after all goes to so many red carpet bashes right? Mind you they're normally on the other side of the barrier to protect the likes of Draper from their inherent diseases - they are just proles after all.

If Draper reads your post I wonder if he will react to your suggestion that he is "jerking off to Internet porn"

Maybe it is your intention to provoke him but after the Dale/Draper spat, I was looking forward to some peace.

"He describes his politics as those of "the bastard child of Roy Hattersley and Neil Kinnock", but it was his evolution into a caricature of champagne socialism that attracted the greater attention and distrust. He drove a vintage Mercedes, collected friends with double-barrelled surnames, and was an enthusiastic habitué of gossip columns and private members' clubs."

Perhaps it's Mr Draper's face up against the window again that makes me think the man doeth protest too much?

Seriously Dolly is in the middle of a nervous breakdown. He is doing an Ali Campbell.

His bizzare behaviour of the week past indicates that his blog project is unravelling alonside his own personal implosion.

Berkley trained(in not at)Draper will need all his reserves to pull out of this nosedive.

If it wasn't a crime, I would offer to pray for him.

he's jerking off to Internet porn...

That is a mental picture I could do without. That being said he does look the type.

Hey dizzy don't insult us northern monkeys by lumping that Toff Draper in with us.
We'll set the marmalades onto you!

Tory Poppins said...

Derek Draper seems to have made it his life's work to 'Tory-bash' at every available opportunity (or indeed 'non' opportunity!)
He's a contemptuos little man with an inflated ego . . and as you so rightly said, ,so very VERY out of touch.
(Can't believe his wife's pregant again . . . yuk! The thought!!)

Mitch said...

Its best to ignore the scruffy little fool.His site gets less traffic than gordons nostril and he has nothing of value to add to any debate.

Guido Fawkes said...

For a terrible second Guido thought Draper had found Totty photos that Guido could not. Those are 2008 photos.

The Raven said...

You do have to remember that is a man whose logic says that being of a different generation and a bit stupid automatically makes you a Nazi, but wanting a database of every holiday we've ever gone on is fine and dandy and not oppressive or Nazi-esque at all.

kinglear said...

The point that Liebore has never properly understood is that people WANT to ascend - and if that means wearing certain clothes and going to "posh" venues then fine. All Draper and his shower aspire to is to prevent others from ascending - especially in terms of education and excellence. No one must fail - but we're perfectly happy if those who really CAN excel get pushed down.

Back In Black said...

Actually, many of my friends are toffs and none of them gives off a whiff of superiority in the way Dolly WMD Gas Attacks with his massive sense of superiority and self satisfied smugness.
To be fair, if the revolution did happen I'd put on my Kommisar's cap and have Dolly shot as an enemy of the proletariat, if only for his gross stupidity and hypocrisy.

"hypocritical" The sole reason I dislike Labour and socialism with a passion. The worst and most despicable trait of human beings.

He has the look of Johnie Vegas though.

It reminds of hearing Jack Jones (remember him?) years ago, on the Today programme, during Ascot Week, complaining of "the rich" spending their time at Ascot while the toilers of the world were chained to their workbenches. That very morning my train pulled into Manchester Picadilly where an excursion train made up of rather aged but beautifully turned out Pullman cars waited to take top hatted and tail coated punters down to Ascot. As I walked past the arriving busloads of - I assumed - "toffs" walking to their train one turned and shouted to a colleague, in broadest Lancashire "Where's Alf?" to which the shouted reply was "'e's back at t'bus, unloading t'brown ale".

Trouble is that whatever he does, Draper still looks a chavy pleb.

jailhouselawyer said...

Remind me again who this Draper is?

Dapper he ain't.

Iain Dale has his faults, as Tim Ireland and myself are not slow to point out.

If Ian Dale is racist, I have yet to see evidence of it.

Well, I suppose Draper has to try and be controversial to bump up his profile and stats in bloggerdom...

Yawn!

John M Ward said...

Something I've noticed over the years of dealing with Labour types, that will gell with those who have written many of the comments here, is that they mostly have huge chipes on their shoulders.

They cannot even see the hypocrisy and double standards that they exhibit because of their one-dimensional "tunnel vision" perspective on reality.

Draper is merely a particular public (now!) example of the breed that should remind the rest of us of how worthless they are to society as a whole.

So, is 'NorthernMonkey' of Con.Home Draper's nom-de-plume?

an ex-apprentice said...

The fat scruffy looking urchin on the right is definitely Draper.

Aren't the other two Anton du Beke and his lovely partner, Kate Garraway?

I have it on very good authority that the child is destined to be a dancer.

Much Love (to all Strictly Come Dancing producers)

Anonymous at 13:50 is right!

To be fair to him, he doesn't look remotely like a toff. He looks like Vegas.

Cameron and Osborne do.

Nothing wrong with that though, obviously.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

Anton du Beke is used to seeing Kate's mouth open that wide, isn't he? :o)

When did he become such a fatty?

I doubt he's the father of his wife's forthcoming child anyway.

why drag Johnny into it?

In Drapers defence, he looks like a hobo in that photo. The poor fat greasy tosser couldn't be mistaken for a toff in a million years.

If he wants to however, step 1: HAVE A SHOWER YOU GRUBBY TOSSER.

"LIPS open that wide" surely...

Utterly hilarious observing Draper implode in full public view. I am surprised Mandy hasn't had him quietly .... silenced.
