Andrew RT Davies faces ridicule for Valentine’s Day tweet

It may be the day of love, but users on social media platform Twitter appear to have little affection for the latest tweet from Andrew RT Davies.

The Welsh Conservative leader whose ‘culture war’ posts on the social media platform have increasingly polarised people, was once again the subject of much ridicule after he posted a Valentine’s Day poem, which read:

The Roses are red
Violets are blue
Stop being woke
It’s not good for you!

One user asked the Senedd politician if his Twitter was a parody account? While another enquired whether he was 7.

Davies answered ‘no’ to both.

Twitter user Phillip Davies asked Davies to define ‘Woke’.

He said: ‘Then explain why decency, respect, consideration, inclusiveness, socially aware, anti racist and thoughtful are qualities to be laughed at. PS No person who uses the word ‘woke’ has ever replied to me with an alternative definition. Not one!’

Finally another Twitter user Boosh Taliesin asked the question many would like the answer to in the form of their own Valentine’s verse…

Roses are red
Torys are blue
What we want to know
Who writes your tweets for you ?

I would commend Philip Davies’s response and add: “Woke” esentially means “educated, enlightened and caring”, and is used by those who cannot spell the first two or feel the third.

On a day when love is the theme, RT doubles down on promoting hate. After all, the use of the word ‘woke’ as a pejorative does exactly that. For his poem, I would suggest that he doesn’t give up the day job but for the good of everyone, he SHOULD do exactly that.

Time for ‘artie’ to rein in the six form student who has been managing his twitter for the last few months 😉

…I mean… this man wants people to take him seriously, he thinks YOU should vote for him and his party, he thinks that he has what it takes to be First Minister in a twenty-first century Cymru, he thinks that you should entrust the future of the country, the future of your children, your future in his hands.. …all joking aside like, but he’s taking the p***, if he thinks that people who have got lives and things they want to do are going to vote for a man who does poems about wokeness. I have long suspected Tories of… Read more »

We are just so blessed as a nation to have our own political bard – adding poetry to that quick witt and rapier oppositon leadership.

A place in Y Gorsedd for certain as “!Llais y Tir”…..i like many were just amazed at what seems a limitless talent…..across the Wales political landscape…👍🏽

I hear he has drawn a commision to pen an ode for that great day we all have in our diarys when our former Prince is to be clowned…sorry crowned.

He’s a manchild. Watch him at First Ministers Question. He does the ‘mocking laugh’ thing whenever Mark Drakeford speaks.

The prescriptive nature of the political correctness dictated by those who see themselves as morally and politically aware, or ‘woke’ as they like to describe themselves, is akin to those kindly and humane impulses to ‘do no harm’ upon which modern Western society is based. Unfortunately, those who see themselves as ‘woke’ are never content to simply support shared general principles, as an expedient guide to arriving at a consensus view on what can generally be agreed upon as being decent and acceptable behaviour. The ‘woke’ are on a mission to convert the world to their own strict interpretation of… Read more »
