Seems to me Kerry Smith must stand down or be removed.
You can say all you like that this is gutter politics, dredging up something probably obtained illegally, that a man should not be judged by his choice of fruity expressions. In a fair world, maybe not.
But in a constituency UKIP have [or had?] a good chance of taking, there are too many non-voters and undecideds who will heed the deep-captured MSM as they come after our Kerry. Plus he looks unfortunately a bit like Nick Griffin.
That’s one issue. To actually think an apology will suffice is the height of lunacy. If you’ve done no wrong, you don’t apologize. If you consider those remarks wrong, then your judgment for the future is suspect.
The moment Kerry Smith apologised, he handed Dimbleby a BBCQT.
Kerry Smith has no choice but to stand down or be removed, now he’s apologized.
