Fox Favourite to Exit Cabinet

The news that the PM wants the initial findings of a Ministry of Defence inquiry into Defence Secretary Liam Fox on his desk by Monday has bookies now making Liam evens favourite to be the next to exit the cabinet.

The relationship with Adam Werritty, who has no official role in government, is coming under close scrutiny. Werrity had a paid role with the controversial Atlantic Bridge charity which was run out of Fox’s parliamentary office before being struck off the charity register, ran a health consultancy in which Fox was an investor (he was shadow Health Secretary) and now seems to be dealing with defence contractors now Fox is Defence Minister. Never mind accompanying him on trips to Sri Lanka and running a defence consultancy out of the London flat he shares with Fox.  All the time flashing a business card which overstates his role as an “advisor to the Rt Hon Dr Fox MP”.  It looks pretty bad that Werrity is in and out of the MoD on a regular basis.

Fox is in Libya, the papers and the opposition are hounding him. One wonders what Fox’s wife Ms Baird thinks of it all?

    I go possibly two further than that Guido. How long will it be before Ken Clarke, Chris Huhne and Fox all have to leave the cabinet? I’m giving Dr Fox till Monday night myself…..Clarke, maybe another few weeks and Huhne, till the police question him again! All by mid November I should think!

            Nazis were socialists who believed in a totalitarian state . Where they differed from their rivals The Communists was that they their ideology was bulit around race as opposed class. Both were very much left wing.

            Big state =left,
            Small state = right

            and how big or small you think the state should be determines how much to the left or right your views are.

      Foxy will do a Huhne. Keep denying everything until a smoking gun is discovered. Not merely innuendo and cirumstantial, but actual solid, indisputable evidence of guilt.

      Until then he’ll hang on.
      He’s likely to get as much support from Dave as Huhne does.

        I do hope for the sake of the gay community he isn’t. Entire careers have been launched based on the stereotype that gay people were edgy and interesting. If one more tedious tory hack stumbles out of the closet I fear the brand may be irreparably harmed. Besides, were homosexuality to lose its mystique, then what on earth would all the closet cases here find to talk about? Economic policy? Be serious.

    Mervyn King has just issued a similar quiet warning – the worst economic crisis since the thirties, and possibly ever. Well, nobody in government (or opposition) has stood up to claim that he’s wrong – there’s not even been a peep.

    What’s the biggest problem for Britain when this crisis hits? It’s simple – the government has absolutely nothing it can do about it. Thanks to the complete economic omnishambles they inherited, they can’t do a bloody thing about it. They can’t use a Keynsian stimulus, because there’s no money left, and we’re borrowed to the bloody hilt. Interest rates are already on the floor. Growth is zero, and there’s no realistic prospect of there being any because the rest of the world is pretty much in recession, so we’ve got nobody to sell to.

    A couple of years ago, I ventured the opinion on this blog that dragging out deficit reduction longer than you absolutely had to was a bad idea because you never knew when the next downturn would hit.

Morecambe Bay wouldn’t be the muddy expanse it is if they stuck a tidal barrier there, so not only would there be fewer wading birds, the Chinks would have to go somewhere else to pick cockles.

        Don’t forget, frackable shale reserves are BAD, because they make fuel which is burned to make plant food (CO2).

        Nuclear is BAD, full stop, because arseholes don’t understand that it’s far cleaner than any other form of power (including PV solar) so long as it’s done properly and engineered to a high standard without bureaucratic intervention.

        I noticed the other day that they are planning to cover Blackfriars Bridge in London with a PV roof – and this is an existing bridge on a tidal river that could easily be used for tidal power. A turbine, however, wouldn’t look all swanky, so they are opting for the far more expensive and dirty PV alternative (you should see the amount of toxic solvents a PV manufacturing plant throws out). Plus, we can make turbines over here, while the PV panels will be imported.

        And it pisses down in Britain all the time, so what’s wrong with lots of small hydroelectric plants? Gravity, last time I checked, is free and will never run out.

      I agree, Engineer. Both the mess that was created and the manner in which the attempt at a rescue from it was implemented, mean that the economic cycle will be increasingly shortened. This will allow insufficient time for any recovery of real substance and lead to the formation of further bubbles in whatever becomes the ‘asset of the moment’.

      The point will soon come when the recessions are back to back. The bottom will fall out of all these overheated markets and this can only lead to a complete breakdown of confidence, credit and world trade as we know it.

    This country is crying out for a true right wing party that will Cameron and co right out of the water.

    I am still nearly too stunned to speak after last wednesday , gay marriage ! the good lord will no doubt offer his thanks , for yet more undermining of the christian faith in the UK . Everything i thought about what was trying to be put right , just zoomed off into some other idealogical place that I dont frequent. It may be that he was influenced by his new speech writer , but not for a moment did i think that Dave (who does do god) would not see the destruction of important values in his words . I was like he had been re chipped . It wasnt just me either there were plenty of people who i knew , who just thought he had folded into equalities speak . i mean which party is now going to stand on a platform of repealing any such legislation formed , i mean the gay lobby may have inadvertantly placed a marker for the beginning of a real political fight and made an ass out of the party. i mean if he just thought , Ill do it and shame all the ignorant illiberal halfwits who are homophobic , he (or his speech writer) just doesnt understand that legislating this , will harden some minds to thinking differently , homophobia has always been a sort of truce , progress yes in stopping the overt bullying and violence , but in truth blokes still enjoy the security of a drink down the dog and duck , and not one in the Old compton . let alone so many interpreting it not as liberating , but a direct unsolicted attack on the church itself .

    Liam Fox touted as the right wingers winger , we find has a rather stupid close friend , who not only ran a charity from his office , but decided to boast about his access on slighty iffy business cards and in so doing exposes exactley the sort of thing voters had hoped this new government was determined to stop .
    I could of course cite , planning as being strangely inconsiderate to non voting wildlife for financial gain , or the rather hasty forest sell off , but these people treat it like water of a ducks back , I said £1bn was going to waste on carbon capture ages ago , but nothing technically odd gets delt with , in any other way as what the spin pros want .
    I mean labour were rotten through and through and yet know , the most despised goverment of ecnomic spin and self enrichment , is now gaining some credibility by knawing away at it would seem an equally intent conservative coalition , to not be bothered if they get the same award , or the libs come up still all clean and nice like . How did we end up with a succesion of this sort of thing via a so called system of mandate and democratic vote .

    If Dr Fox is guilty (and who or how he was stitched up) then wont larger questions need to be asked , about what goes on , whilst convincing the public , its not just become a system for jollies and financing . with opposition making out british people have been let down , only a mere 18 months after british people were financially ruined and corrupted by same corrupt shitty gang (with new faces), now enjoying shit on other party game .

    defence questions on monday (quell suprise) , and many of us wondering if this first skirmish is the pre view to somthing else , certainly feels like one part of this governments story is over , and with gay marriage part of our national christian understanding , for whatever the new is . I have seen the new and its is full of holes , sympathetic but uncaring , corrupt to make message work, and full of hired legally minded physcophants , running our lives more and more on the flawed soft left corporate model as run by labour so well and exmplified by the EU which has not had even its accounts signed off for 14yrs , and is about to land the tax payer with the bill for its shitty gang of corrupts .

    If fox falls it will be a blow , if any reshuffle is gay progressive wonk , then I want a choice , as i was in no way led to believe this what i voted for in 2010

        It is a perfectly reasonable position not to like the practice of homosexuality. If that were not the position, then the tolerance of it would not be possible either and it would be driven underground again.

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
