Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister goes viral with ‘weird’ royal family tweet
A Welsh Conservatives Shadow Minister has gone viral with a tweet about the King’s speech that was branded ‘cult like’ and ‘weird’.
Tom Giffard, the Shadow Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sport, posted a Christmas day image to Twitter of himself and others wearing masks of royal family members.
Along with the photo, the MS for the South Wales West region posted a Tweet that said: “Merry Christmas everyone – we take watching the King’s speech very seriously in the Giffard household.”
In response, Twitter users branded the photo ‘exceptionally weird’ and ‘pathetic’ with one user commenting: “We take bootlicking very seriously in the Giffard household.”

Another tweeted: “This behaviour is embarrassing for yourself, your constituents and Wales as a whole. Please for everyone’s sake, stop!”
The royal family masks included King Charles, Prince William and Princess Kate, the late Queen and late Prince Philip along with Harry.
One Twitter user quipped: “I’m guessing the photographer is the one in the Prince Andrew mask?” whilst another commented: “Where’s Andrew’s mask?”
Tom Giffard MS didn’t reply to any of the comments on the post, which has been viewed over 38,000 times.

Bootlicking? This wally throated the boot to the knee with that display of servile gibbering. I hope his wife is happy that she married one of the Top Ten Most Useless and Cringe Turds in Cymru.
These Tories seem to love their self destructive behaviour 🤣🍿
…imagine being one of his kids though….[shudder]
Just how deluded do you have to be, to vote for these absolute f**King clowns
Bet the Gifford’s household regret having those extra tipples now.
You know there is something wrong when you see or hear a Person showing more passion for a foreign ruler than anything in their own nation. Get this straight, I don’t have a problem with them as people but rather the fact they sit atop of an institution that assassinated their way to the top at the expense of the native British royalty. And in turn now claim they are British! This is pure insanity and totally unacceptable. Any Cymric person who think it’s acceptable is in fact…NOT a Cymro!
So busy fawning he didn’t even notice what Chaz said 😀
Little things, little minds.
