Tories Turn Screws on MacShame

Four years before the likely General Election the Tories have decided to very publicly select a candidate in Rotherham. Officially the Party’s “Parliamentary Spokesman” for Denis MacShane’s seat, Jackie Whiteley fought it at the last election, increasing the Conservative vote to 16.7% pushing the LibDems into take second place.

It’s almost as if they are planning for a by-election…

        Don’t want to be a party popper but has mcshane actually been charged with anything ?
        Also is Devine actually in Prison yet? Come to think of it, has he even been sentenced yet? If not, why not?

    Harriett Harman is on the Daily Politics. She is an absolute disgrace. She is such an hypocrite.
    Labour cuts are not cuts, but they are cuts, no they are not. What would labour cut, err, what cuts, oh those cuts.
    Marman go away and take the rest of your cronies with you.
    Was there any point to Harman being on the programme. Yes because she showed herself up and her party yet again.

    Oh yes the BBC radio 4 sent Caroline Quinn or was it Martha Kearney? (same leftie claptrap with different nice voices); up there a week ago to get the “publics” view on government cuts. Did not go fully according to bbc biased plan – could it be that people are now wary (and fully aware) of the obvious BBC left bias?

      Human beings’ DNA is so similar that, properly, there are no races, just slight superficial adaptations to local climate. Apart from such adaptations, the standard deviation of the value of any human attribute between different groups is trivial compared with the standard deviation of that attribute within any one group. In other words, forget it.

      My African aquaintance told me something that the author did not mention: the length of the African heel bone. He pointed out that your average African (where I work occasionally) has a relatively small calf muscle due to the larger leverage available from the muscle’s attachment on the longer heel bone. And when that calf muscle is developed they are born runners. I don’t know if this is anatomically true, but it looks and sounds about right. He said to me: “we are running machines from the Savannah”.

        The BBC interview of Brenden Barber showed the number of protestors as 250,000 (running along the bottom of the screen) while Barber, at the same time, was stating 500,000.
        Now watching the helicopter view of the protest it appeared nowhere near 250,000. If the unions and BBC lie about this then where do they draw the line?

    An election might be precipitated any time by Huhne taking a large group of Lib Dem MP’s across the floor of the house to the Opposition benches.

    All those Lib Dem MPs who come from constituencies where Labour came second have already worked out how to maximise their chances of re-election.

    Neither Clegg nor Cameron can trust each other; the recent history of both of them is littered with broken promises.

    If there was a mass defection of Lib Dem MPs to Labour; has Cameron lost the ability to call an election; would we be faced with a change of Government without an election?

    Will Clegg turn and run once he has an AV Yes Vote under his belt?

    Are the briefings referred to in ConservativeHome coming from a Lib Dem inside the coalition Government?
