Willie Free

There were raised eye-brows when former LibDem MP Willie Rennie was appointed as the Special Advisor to the Scotland Office just days after being rejected at the ballot box by the voters of Dunfermline. To his credit he did not ask for a salary as a SpAd, the parliamentary resettlement payment was quite enough. A close ally of Danny Alexander, it seems now his old boss has moved up the ministerial ladder the first SpAd is set to quit. He will be replaced by Ming’s old ginger speech-writer Euan Roddin.

Willie claims he wants to return to Scotland as he is separated from his family while in London. Coincidentally candidates are being picked for next year’s Scottish Parliament elections right about now…

    Oh, matron! I love willie!

    Euan looks like a nice boy.

    Is he good with colours?

  3. 3

    1) When rejected by the electorate employ the reject as a SpAd and then wait for a safe seat to crop up into which you parachute the reject.

    Catflap says:

    Rejoice at this news.
    It just warms the cockles of my heart to see such a heavyweight Parliamentarian like Willie being recognised for all his achievements in Westminster.
    He used to arrange the cushions in the LibDems Dorma Bungalow which was situated off the committee corridor.

    Unlike Willie, Euan’s only ever worked in various parliamentary offices. A bit of a swine, with more ambition than talent (and I used to work with him)

    If you lower property prices, then people might be able to afford to do lower paid jobs thus limiting the ‘need’ for immigrants. Starting a home business, becoming self-employed might actually become economically viable, thus reducing unemployment.

    But, no. Better to keep property prices (and rents) sky high, wages rock bottom and continue importing immigrants from the third world like there’s no tomorrow.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
