Blackburn Rovers-supporting politician in bother over 'donkey' remark

REMARK: Coun Simon Blackburn

REMARK: Coun Simon Blackburn

First published in Blackpool FC

A Rovers-supporting politician in Blackpool has been urged to resign after branding his own constituents "Donkey botherers" on Facebook.

Councillor Simon Blackburn made the light-hearted remark while watching Premier League rivals Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers battle out the Lancashire derby on Saturday.

The 37-year-old politician, though leader of the Labour group on Blackpool Council, is a life-long fan of Rovers.

The councillor made the remark via his phone and posted it on his Facebook page, as his side went two nil down.

The comment, read: "Oh my actual God...the donkey-botherers are 2-0 up thanks to two of the worst refereeing decisions ever!"

He is understood to have believed it would only be seen by friends.

In fact his privacy settings meant it could be seen by anyone - and it was soon picked up on by Blackpool fans.

The gaffe has been seized upon by rival Tories who have called for him to resign, one source claiming it is a clear reference to: "Having sex with ruddy donkeys!"

Peter Callow, leader of the Tory-run council said: "What an unbelievably stupid, ridiculous, crass thing to say. He's just committed political suicide.

"He has stabbed the people of Blackpool in the back and he needs to resign immediately."

Mr Blackburn, who is up for election in May, is now regretting making the remark.

"I was alarmed to discover that what I had intended to be private comments, made in a very light-hearted way to a friend, have been made public," he said.

"I am hugely proud of Blackpool FC and their supporters, both of whom are a huge asset to the town and I apologise for any offence caused.

"I hope and trust that there will be many more enjoyable meetings between Blackpool and Blackburn in the top flight and I'm horrified that my remarks may have caused offence."

Let’s face it, football is only a game, end off. This bloke made the comment in what he thought was a private facebook chat. It appears that a spineless tory has dropped in it from a great height. But really it’s a non-story, if you weigh up everything else happening in Blackpool and Lancashire there is a lot more important things going on. Load of old rubbish really…………no
t worth printing NOW COME ON IS IT.

It was "a light hearted remark", for which Peter Callow thinks he should resign immediately? Get a life Callow, and stop trying to make political gain out of it. Sure your name isn't Peter Shallow?

If it is acceptable for africans to call one another the n word, but no-one else can, then why can't a donkey botherer refer to his own as such?
-
These sort of comments go on everyday, despite the P.C brigade trying to turn us all in to drones. It sounds as though it was not said with any malice, just humour. we don't all laugh at the same things but he shouldn't need to resign.
-
We as a population are currently screaming out for politicians to say how things really are, not be afraid of standing up for us at the risk of ruffling feathers, yet as a total contradiction we stifle and censor thier every action and statement to within an inch of it's life. who in thier right mind is going to want the job before long?
-
We hear things like 'theres no community spirit anymore, no great in britain anymore' usually accompanied by references to the war years etc. how P.C were we then? not very. we can't have our cake and eat it so stop whinging about every little thing and lets all deal with the stuff that matters!

Most away fans refer to Blackpool as "donkey lashers" or something similar - Blackpool fans know this, joke about it and take it on the chin. So this idiot Callow just needs to get a life and learn to let live! If anyone sees Peter Callow down on the beach late at night, call a reporter and a photographer ...

whilst i can't agree with quite how you put it, you're pretty much on the right track there, useyourhead.
it is clearly a Tory councilor trying to use a none-story for political gain ahead of an election. that is perhaps where the story actually is.
i'm not even viewing this with my rovers bias. had the reverse situation happened, i would not be in the least offended. i would simply view it as it is - a football fan communicating his passion for the game in a light-hearted manner, as we all do. if we take the humour and sense of belonging out of the game, then we are truly lost.

What utterly stupid, inane and crass remarks - I MEAN OF COURSE those by Cllr. Callow.

We supporters of the Clarets are forever being called 6 fingered Dingles by Rovers supporters to which our response is to refer to them as Deadwood Zombies-Chicken Pluckers. Part of everyday banter - clearly not a PC matter

SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE it would seem that we supporters are really being cared for by the free-loading Councillors so we can sublimely overlook issues such as neglected police service/roads/school
s/cemeteries/hospita
ls/care for the elderly/fire service/refuse collections because Cllr. Callow has got to the very core of what is really the major problem in this County/Country of ours.

MANY THANKS Cllr. Callow I can now sleep peacefully.
BY THE WAY the dictionary definition of the word Callow probably sums you up perfectly i.e. Immature; lacking adult perception, experience, or judgment. SEEMS YOU ARE APPROPRIATELY NAMED

Oh just imagine the faux outrage if it had been Birtwistle calling us "dingles".

In public its ok for him to be saying how fantistic the Blackpool fc fans are but in private he can be as insulting as he wants? Isn't that being a bit two faced?
.
I wonder what he calls black people when he is in "private" or homosexuals, pakistanis, etc etc.

He has been caught out (you can almost sense him squirming like a worm on a hook!) and now he and his fellow labour supporters are trying to wriggle out of it by saying Oh its a joke, its light hearted blah di blah!

Now Hasslem!!! Where do we start with you and your ilk of Wover Supporters? Some long serious thought required because it is hard to dig through the pile of Chicken S***e that is spouted out of the future Takeaway.

Perhaps the retort should be in like manner to yours. BRFC fans are referred to as Zombies because of the intense interbreeding in and around Darwen as well as continually watching the "gerrintwum hoofball played at the graveyard. Quite surprised you are out in the light!!!

Still I wish you well in your quest for survival

What utterly stupid, inane and crass remarks - I MEAN OF COURSE those by Cllr. Callow.

We supporters of the Clarets are forever being called 6 fingered Dingles by Rovers supporters to which our response is to refer to them as Deadwood Zombies-Chicken Pluckers. Part of everyday banter - clearly not a PC matter

SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE it would seem that we supporters are really being cared for by the free-loading Councillors so we can sublimely overlook issues such as neglected police service/roads/school



s/cemeteries/hospita



ls/care for the elderly/fire service/refuse collections because Cllr. Callow has got to the very core of what is really the major problem in this County/Country of ours.

MANY THANKS Cllr. Callow I can now sleep peacefully.
BY THE WAY the dictionary definition of the word Callow probably sums you up perfectly i.e. Immature; lacking adult perception, experience, or judgment. SEEMS YOU ARE APPROPRIATELY NAMED
vintage - we call you six fingered dingles - cos you are.
.
and midas you must have some empathy with the donkey stuff, what with your ears.
The politician in question is obviously not very politic.

You are obviously a b*****d. I don't care how many fingers you have. You talk like a b*****d, you have the intelligence of a b*****d, what else do you expect me to call you? B*****d!
Good to see your contribution to the Gene Pool is not wasted.

HASSLEM HASSLEM DEFINED.

Hello again, further to your remarks about me being more mutant I realised you were not capable or understand that the word hand is the plural of hand. This prompted me to get out the old dictionary to try to understand or define your constant jibes about the mentality of BFC supporters. I was NOT surprised to arrive at the following:-

Hassle: trouble or bother

Lower: biologically less advanced cumber: weigh down, hamper, hinder worth: quantity, value

Putting the above together it perfectly describes your very existence as: - “Someone who is a lot of trouble being biologically hampered and of low value. Couple this to your continual presence and using the same theme time and again it also compounds the other apt description of you “Empty vessels make most sound”


Further observarion of your name(s) and habitat combined, proves your continual accusations that BFC supporters being subnormal are based on the hypothesis “It takes one to know one!”

Perhaps it is time for you to get back to the swamp of creation.

vintage - old and decrepid
claret - something that was once a leading light in the crusty old word, but has now been overtaken by more innovation from the new world.
.
old and decrepid and living in the past??? - surely not :0)
.
have a word with that idiot in kelbrook.
.
and as for "takes one to know one" - come on, you can do much better than that.

Old I would confess too but the 69 year old brain keeps telling me I am only 27!

Decrepid certainly not!! Up at 06:00hrs ever morning (07:00hrs at weekend)

Living in the past: What am I doing on a computer then if this is the case?

Only posh people come from Kelbrook, it's a well situated place much better than Cumberworth (is that your white van on Coal Pit Lane?).

Perhaps should have done better but that sprung to mind hey ho! On reflection perhaps I should have used your habitat as an indicator confirmed by the team you support from afar so as they say

"Yorkshire born, Yorkshire bred!! Strong in th'arm and thick in th'ead! Don't forget also that the name Dingle comes from a well known Soap Opera based on life in Yorkshire which I believe all Yorkshire residents is real-life and watch it as a news programme.


Long may your woes(not a mis-spelling) continue and live long and prosper V V
