Labour candidate Peter White calls the Queen "vermin" and a "parasite"

Labour candidate Peter White has clashed with Tory MP Andrew Rosindell on Facebook about having a public holiday in 2012 to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

Peter White wrote;

"What is the point of celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of someone who is born into a position of privilege, she is a parasite and milks this country for everything she can, she has more front than margate asking for extra money from the civil list. Maybe she should sell a couple of her properties.

Maybe if she want Buckingham Palace to maintained from public funds she should open it to the public. Don't get me wrong i have no problem with a public holiday but lets have one that means something, rather than celebrating vermin."

So, firstly Peter White is not aware the Queen already opens Buckingham Palace to the public every year and has done for a while now.

The Queen is not a parasite and does not milk this country for everything she can get, what utter crap.

I don't have an issue with Peter being a republican, but why lower the argument to nothing but personal attacks on someone who won't respond, or is that all he is capable of doing?

Over on Paul Waugh's blog, Peter White went on to say;

"I think that Republicanism is a valid viewpoint and there are plenty of people who agree with me. I would prefer to criticise the institution rather than the individual. But if someone puts themselves in the public domain, they should be open to criticism."

So, he would prefer to attack the institution not the individual, but in reality he didn't, he attacked the individual in a cowardly pathetic way.

His argument is completely undermined because of how he put over the argument in what he said.

If you read the updates at the bottom of Paul Waugh's blog, you will see that Peter White is no longer issuing comment in his own name and the Labour spinning machine has taken over. It also appears his local party is not standing by him either.

Perhaps Peter White is now a former candidate after his childish and pathetic outburst, and hardly an endorsement for the republican cause!

I'm as Republican as they come but on a personal basis I have nothing but admiration for the Queen. She was not expected to come to the throne but when it was clear after the abdication of her uncle that she would, she sacrificed a lot of her own life to do her duty.

Being head of state was a huge thing for a 25 year old with 2 toddlers to suddenly take on, a lot sooner than she wanted or expected.

From her days in the services during World War 2 right through to now, the Queen has done this country proud.

So Peter White gets the boot for telling the truth. Can anyone tell me how you would decribe a person who has never worked but has been supported by the British taxpayer since birth.

Caron, you nearly had me in tears, I really don't know she's managed to tear herself away from a 'normal' life to 'sacrifice' herself for the sake of what?

It's a hard life eh, but if you're willing to make the sacrifice then hey, ho, we'll give you a couple of houses, millions of ponds and a guaranteed income for the rest of your life.

Peter White is right in his comments if a little generous. I hope that I live long enough to see the Queen and her Royal hangers on doing the dance of death on the parapet at Windsor Castle - or failing that, working behind the counter at Burger King.
