Tory MPs Run to the Hills

One thing that has been extremely noticeable today is the complete lack of Tory MPs coming out to bat for Cameron. Boris kicked him below the belt earlier and the rolling news channels, that have discussed nothing else today, have been void of any friendly blue faces. Even Nick Clegg had to be put out to say that the Prime Minister had no need to resign. Talk about scraping the barrel.

James Forsyth has also picked up on the silence and notes that the phones are extremely quiet too. The PM’s TV man Craig Oliver is in Africa with Cameron, but that is not an excuse for allowing the narrative that the PM walking is actually a possibility to gain traction. The Guardian are even suggesting that the PM should be knifed by the LibDems in order to save their electoral fortunes. Guido isn’t so sure that making, and then breaking Cameron, would do the yellows any favours. It is very telling that people are not willing to put their heads above the parapet though, this could be worse than it looks for the Prime Minister. Where’s George? Hague? Hammond?

    If they sacrificed Dave in a Wickerman would we get our summer back?

    Down With Brown! says:

    George’s in the House of Commons on Theresa May’s left shoulder. He’s also got the collapse of the Eurozone and the American economy to wrestle with.

    What about Hague? Dave’s deputy in all but name.

    Bollocks Broadcasting Corporation says:

    Note to all news editors :
    It is essential to mention Andy Coulson and David Cameron in the same sentence as often as possible. Also try to think of how we can work it into Eastenders and maybe the weather forecasts.

    Perhaps all the MP’s have fucked off home early?

    Reckon there is a shitstorm brewing for the direction of the Labour Party

  12. 12
    The Umpire is always right! says:

    To be honest, why should they comeout and bat when the debate is being spun along by the leftie coke snorters.

    question 1: When is Dave resigning?
    answer : he is not.

    Question 2: When do you think dave should resign?
    answer : I dont.

    Question 3 : When Dave does stand down (as you suggest), who should lead and will you call a election.

    The only ones talking up the Cameron-Coulson story are the Labour Party. Every interview is about how Cameron must answer questions about the appointment of Coulson.

    So where were the cloth-eared clowns for last week’s PMQs?

    All this noise appears to be to deflect attention away from Trinity Mirror and Milibland Minor’s mate Baldwin.

    And will someone please shut up that chipolata-dicked moron Prescott. The unmitigated gall of the man to witter on about morality beggars belief.

    Gold prices hit a record high today of $1,600+, meaning that Gordon Brown’s decision to sell off 400 tonnes of gold in 1999 at a twenty year low in the market has cost the nation over £10,000,000,000

    This time, just do the opposite of what Osborne suggests.

    PS: Conservatives should start counting public sector job adverts and the square inches and estimated revenue they generated in The Guardian over the period 1997-2010. Labour and The Guardian have got to be brought to book over this clever scheme through which Labour helped the Guardian in return for favourable reports.

    Include all public sector jobs for this, i.e. includng all those in education, nhs, beeb, quangos for more than 25% dependent on taxpayers’ money, councils, regional authorities.

    Also should be included the job adverts that were commssioned by recruiting companies looking for candidates for public sector positions.

    Come on lazy tories. Do the work. Go to national library or whatever and start measuring all those advert suare inches. Tedious, but these adverts are smiling you in the face. Make an estimate of what all those adverts represented for the Guardian in in absolute amounts as well as percentage of total turnover over theperiod 1997-2010. Compare Guardian vs Independent and you know enough.

    Start counting now!

    Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

    Politicians are generally self-centred and spineless. If one of their colleagues gets into trouble their first instinct is to assess how it can be turned to their own benefit. In this instance most of them have calculated that keeping out of the public eye serves them best.

    I have to say quite a lot of them must be shitting themselves. Uncle Rupert hasn’t had his say yet – I don’t expect it tomorrow at the parliamentary hearing as he is still in contrition mode – but there have been hints in his papers of the future.

    One important thing to keep in mind; the torys, unlike Labour, can and do despose of their leaders very quickly if they see fit. They have history and form for doing so. They are far more ruthless and organised than Labour. How many opportunities did Labour have to oust Brown, and non of them came to anything. If this picks up more heat, Dave should be worried, very worried.

  87. 87
    Zenobia says:

    What we need now, is something like South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Those who conspired with the Murdoch crime family and their accomplices – but who make a truthful and detailed public confession – should be stripped of public office and all their ill-gotten gains, but otherwise pardoned. The hard, unrepentant core of the Murdoch-Cameron crime axis should be imprisoned for their betrayal of the British people.

    If NI staff are going to sing it looks like Gordon & Tony could be neighbours again, this time in Wormwood Scrubs. This is a Labour scandal that’s how Labour know where all the bodies are buried. The problem NI have on pinning a fair share of the cover up blame on Labour is their defence is that they didn’t know what was going on, it was a few bad apples. The police defence is we knew a few people had been hacked, eg. Boris, but we were too busy with terrorism to look further. Anybody following the story knows Labour, The Met & NI were all in it together but I just can’t see any of the other two coming clean and admitting it so once again, just like the Dodgy Dossier, Labour will get away with their lies.

    That means please don’t bring a vote of no confidence in me, backbenchers. Think of it. First of all Nick Clegg could become instantly caretaker PM, and play for keeping position. Next if coalition folds, it’s curtains for most MPs as Labour are on 43/44, and would win a majority. Self interest dictates that Tory MPs don’t pull the rug from Cameron.

    Alternatively a coup against me could bring a new party leader out of the eurosceptic wing, bringing UKIP and non-voters back into support. Conservatives could see a transformation in the party’s morale followed by a new coalition govt of national unity with Ed Miliband, demanding the end of government by News International. Stranger things have happened. I’m ready to pack up, I can tell you. I’m getting sick of being seen for what I really am – a totally self-interested shyster.

    You obviously don’t understand how this works…if Cameron were to resign it would initially be as Leader of Tory Party ,he would remain as PM Clegg wouldn’t be PM…..what would happen is that the Tories as largest party would hold a pretty quick leadership contest(see 1990 Thacher) HMQ would then ask Cameron who she should send for..the new leader of Tories providing he/she could command support for forming an administration…if not then HMQ could send for leader of next largest party i.e. Labour(who would need LibDem support)to form Coalition…politically Clegg would be unabale to join so he would have to resign as Leader and Hughes would take over and form a government which would then have to get a confidence motion through..if not then there would have to be an election and in the meantime the economy would go into freefall,interest rates have to be raised etc etc and the resulnt cuts/chaos would make the last year look like a picnic

There is a mild amusment about the hysterical nature, but on the whole this corruption is a non event, look at every other country in the World and compare this circus, we in the UK are sooo anal. Cameron has buggerred off to Africa because it doesn’t really matter, any of it, and providing the Tories keep on governing the country, in a few weeks once the police have investigated and the judges have reviewed, not a lot will happen, its all froth.

    Passing the blame is a good game but a lousy excuse.

    Cameron could have hung tough and called the referendum anyway, then played hardball with the EU over everything from funding to bail outs. Instead, he went into whipped dog mode immediately and grovelled to give them ever more with each passing demand.

    Meanwhile here in this country, we face huge increases in energy prices, are told to tighten our belts and feel ‘proud’ that record amounts of OUR money, is being hosed around the world so third world dictators can buy villas in the south of France and new private jets on our forced largesse.

    It went on since 2002.

    Why no inquiry before 2005 Tony?

    Why no inquiry before 2010 Gordon?

    Why oh why?

    Talk about seize the moment whilst you can!

    Given the way Labour spun the media I wouldn’t be surprised if it damaged them more as a party than the Conservatives.

    I totally fail to understand why Cameron thinks the issue about the resignations in the Met are different to his?? He left off his social meeting with Rebecca Brooks from the list he published, I wonder why?? He is an arrogant pompous arse. Time for an election please.

    We still have not had any justice for the wholesale corruption concerning MPs expenses, lobbying, second jobs, second (to bolster their pension), cosying up to to the media mogales despite hacking scandals and warning not to employ them.

    When is there going to be a proper investigation about the actions of MPs corrupt ways. What gives them the moral authority to criticise anyone else. Teresa May, Clegg, Vaz etc.

    When are MPs going to have the moral decency to resign? Why do they not speed up the investigation into DAVID LAWS?? HUHNE??

    Where is Cameroid? In Africa and probably handing over a few hundred million pounds of taxpayers money that he will then claw back by ripping of the poorest in the UK. It is easy to run away and hide, his hero Bliar did it and Brown was an all time expert in running away and hiding to avoid trouble while fingering anyone else lower down the food chain while smashing mobile phones and office equipment and making his staff cry while lying through his teeth.

    Ed Miliband? In charge? Jesus H Christ! I wouldn’t put him in charge of our Parish Council!

    May, maybe. Then, (In, as they say, no particular order) Davis, Hannan, Gove, Redwood, Hague, Green…

    But, not fucking labour – AT ALL! Have you such a short memory that you’ve forgotten how they totally butt-fucked the economy; that the cluster-fuck of a party that Miliband and Harman lead is the nastiest, most politically illiterate party we have ever lived through (and, yes, I can remember Heath!)

    Fully agree.
    Why the Tories should help the most disgraced party of this planet to stay in power is beyond comprehension even for the modern Tory party.

    Rather they would profit of the (alas, improbable) resignation of that phony idiot, elect Davis or Gove and come back to being a Conservative party rather than a stupid imitation of nuLabour; then seek a new general election and go over Reds and Yellows with the steamroller.

    This they can easily do, the day they remember that they are supposed to be conservatives instead of Christianophobe limp wrists like the fraud call-me-dave and his ridiculous same-sex-girlfriend Nick.

    Agreed, there isn’t really a major scandal here. The NOTW were very naughty hacking Milly Dowler’s phone – if they even did – but apart from that, a few celebrities and politicians up to no good had phone messages listened to. The Met, the Labour government and all the newspapers knew it went on but the execs and Editors never asked, to enable them to deny they knew anything about it. Piers Morgan wrote about it in one of his early books. When they hacked Prince William’s phone they went too far so it had to be investigated for national security reasons, it’s interesting that hacking the Deputy PM’s phone didn’t raise any security issues!!

    However, Labour has now turned this into a scandal but since all this was brushed under the carpet on their watch all the failures are Labour’s failures. I cannot understand how Labour are getting such a free ride here. Cameron should never have employed Coulson but at the time the Tories desperately needed The Sun’s support. The irony is if Cameron hadn’t employed Coulson he’d probably be working for Ed Miliband today and we’d never have heard another word about phone hacking. Remember when he left NOTW Gordon Brown was the first person on the phone to wish him all the best for the future.

    As long as the list includes all the labour crooks and bent spivs who used the gutter press for years.

    A truth and reconciliation would only be valid if ALL the political class from every party took part. But then again thats not the intention is it? Not so much a truth an reconciliation commission than a lynching. Now if the labour-Murdoch crime syndicate was fully investigated along side the Cameroid-Murdoch crime axis then the UK might just come out of it all cleaner and better than before.

The picture becomes a little clearer, Balls relationship with Black likely cost him the leadership of the Labour party and his association with media moguls likely finds his dirty fingers all over this story.. hence his absence and his boyish wife acting instead as spokesKrankie.

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.”
