Eric Pickles Unleashed

There's a really good interview on Tory Radio with Eric Pickles talking about the Crewe & Nantwich by election. Quotes include:-

"We need switchers from the Labour party. We're getting some, but the question is are there enough."

"It would be a very significant win for us. We are by no means predicting we are going to take this seat".

"We've gone about it by not following Labours tactics of personal attacks. Not following Labours tactics of straightforward racist pandering."

"The problem Labours got is they've got a PM who can tell you the price of a barrel of oil, but cant tell you the price of a litre of petrol at the pumps."

On Labour campaign materials
"I haven't seen anything quite so blatant and unpleasant or as threatening since early Chinese communist posters or posters during the Bolshevik revolution."

"In fairness to these good folks there's no dog whistle abut this. It's abusive nasty in your face racism of the most despicable kind."
