Exclusive: Rebellious Tory Backbenchers’ Late Night Meeting

While Dave’s away, the backbenchers come out to play: Guido hears that the Eurosceptics and other assorted agitators on the Tory benches will be meeting to war-game and plot around the possible compromise on EU institutions and the European Stability Pact, in advance of the PM’s statement tomorrow. A meeting is scheduled for immediately after the 10pm vote tonight in Edward Leigh’s office. Strictly backbenchers only…

    Just saying says:

    Let the games begien.

    and can someone give Dave his spine back?

    It can only be hoped that you are not auditioning for the role of ‘new Billy’.

    Cameron about to do another hand brake u turn on Europe.

    Is about to come out as a ‘cheese eating surrender monkey’, waiting to take up his next job as EU Chief Administrator for Athens and Greece.

    Justice Secretary outlines plans for an large increase in speeding penalties, with the extra income being used to fill a funding gap for victims of crime.

    Huhne excepted

    The 81 is growing in number.

    Heath 2 should be shot down over the Channel on his way back & a real Conservative Prime Minister installed.

    Blue Labour out.

        Going to be a rough few days for you swooning Cameroons.

        Popcorn at the ready – his excuse for kowtowing to the EU yet again is going to brilliant I am sure. Totally believable. Oh yes.

          Its not my fault the only half decent politician UKIP have is slightly strange and talks too fast.

            And the panicking swooning Cameroon advocates more Brownonomic fiscal insanity from Blue Labour.

          +1. I’d say democracy began to haemorrhage away – slowly – from 1947 and then the pace accelerated once we got into the ’60s and the great treason began. Essentially, death by a thousand cuts. The corpse is still there but it would be sensible not to be fooled by the occasional twitches.

        Serf Dude says:

        Britain is a democracy – my itchy arse! ALL of the prominent MPs in the 2 major parties and most of the other publicity junkies in the ‘also rans’ are appointed by small groups of people in secret meetings. The ultimate example is Gordon Brown. A man who could cause a fight in an empty room who rose to power without being elected to anything as an individual.

        If this were a democracy we would have a death penalty for murderers. If this were a democracy, we would have been out of the EU 25 years ago. If this were a democracy, our Police force would be an apolitical service that caught bad people and was not afraid to charge people for fear of their political connections.

        If this were a democracy, Dave Cameron would be serving tea at the Witney Tory party meetings and David Davies would be PM.

        If this were a democracy, Mulsim thugs who beat up English girls in racist attacks would be in prison. If this was a democracy, people would not be put in prison for offending others through their speech.

      The four simultaneous inquiries are currently costing in excess of £3.5million per week. If Ed succeeds in his demands for an enquiry into Bonuses then the unproductive time and money wasting inquiries demanded by Ed will total in excess of £10million a week. That’s how Labour like to waste your money.

    Well who’d have thought Wavy Davy the warmonger is back to his old tricks, screw the British public , I want an EU pension, spineless b’stard.

      I wouldn’t mind an EU pension either. How do you get one. I have got one of everything else.

    Boots, at their Nottingham head office, are forcing their work force to take a pay cut. The money is to be paid to Nottingham City Council to fund the tram extension.

      Its a huge park full of clueless wankers

      Oh and try BP thats just as bad

      Robbin Hood Robbing You says:

      It’s not just Boots, we’ve had to cancel taking on 2 extra young workers due to this illigal tax on jobs. Watch out once Nottingham City Council have got away with every city will do the same. We had a pair of council executive in to explain why
      this was happening it was amazing they could not even explain their own policy to us! The rumour round here is that the tram company has ensured all the key decision makers are looked after (there are some rather strange jobs for friends of friends I understand).
      Still you can get tram from the City Centre (looks like Revolution square in Havana but with loads more Chavs) to Hucknal (just Google it and you’ll see why you never want to go the there basically Chavnagrad)

    I notice panorama on Al Jabeeba tonight is focussing on Lord Ashcroft and his donations to the Tory party. Won’t be watching but have made a note in my diary for next weeks programme which must be on trade unions, their donations and subsequent influence on the Liebour party.

    I mean, it’s only fair & balanced innit.

    Hang The Bastards says:

    Dear All Tory EuroSceptics,

    You all have one thing in common – you are blessed with common sense which seems sadly lacking in the House of Commons.

    You obviously share a true National Identity, another thing that binds you and differentiates yourselves from the shameless trecherous bastards that purport to act in the nations best interests.

    I, and my children and their children are all relying on you to do the obvious and right thing, and to once and for all put an end to this mindless integration that has been couped up by those spinning in the bottom of a barrel.

    You will always have my moral vote, but sadly I cannot vote for the party I have supported for 40 years whilst that EU wannabee President Cameron is pursuing the path of deceit of the public.

    Follow your heart, not the dumb clueless bastards who are up tro their necks in this mess. We need a new way.

    Thank you.

    Cameron needs to see a doctor to stop the curvature of his spine often caused by the lack of a spine and a tendency to u-turn at every opportunity.

    I reckon Dave is stuck between a rock and hard place.
    The Eurozone is pants and no one wants to admit it cos it affects market confidence. Pants! I doubt anyone with any real intelligence will ever have confidence in this undemocratic, non competitive, Franco- German institution. Ever.

    So no cosy, self-congratulatory drinks and canapes session at Chequers on the PMs return this time round then?

    Synic says:

    Please explain how this virtually bankrupt little island has a long term future outside Europe. The “special relationship” with the U.S. was and is an illusion. We are irrelevant long term to the BRICs. Only Europe largely shares our history, culture and values.
    We need a determined right wing government to sort our mess out, but not UKIPs little englander approach.

    Can someone ask Nigel Dodds, DUP MP, if he thinks the DUP motion congratulating David Cameron on the use of the veto (that never was) before Christmas was a good idea.

    polythesis says:

    The political classes, the liblabcon, the civil service all work for the sole interests of the EU, they have legally obliged themselves to place the interests of the EU above those of their own people and country. They work for them not us. We the people are not required to give our assent or agreement, we are expected to obey our betters, they have decided our future on our behalf whether we like it or not.

    In years if secret meetings behind closed doors they have worked to betray their own country, their own people into EU serfdom. Everything they do, every move they make is designed to push us further into a united states of Europe. All three parties share the same aim, that of the destruction of the independent sovereign state. If the euroslime masters didnt want HS2 it would not be built, they do so money is no object, it is like the windmill in animal farm, it will be built regardless of the cost, the new ‘Roman road’ colonisation of the UK and helped and assisted by those we trusted.

    We have more than enough evidence now that the regime in its entirety is a Quisling regime, the head of the Hydra at present a known and proven liar called Cameron but he is simply doing what millibrain or Clagg would do, follow orders. If you vote for any of these Quislings you fully support the death of the UK, you support EU rule, you support unelected euroslime kommissars ruling you. A vote for the liblabcon is a vote for servitude and serfdom for you and your children.

    Phil from the Wrekenton Seven Stars says:

    Why doesn’t Dave just punch Sarkozy in the face and grab hold of Merkel’s big bazookas.

    then he would get us expelled from the EU .

    problem sorted

    Cammoron IMHO is a europhile ass- hole as are the other two ass-hole partners.
    When oh when are the people of this country going to wake up as to what they are being led into.
    RBS today lost 320 million in share value due to RED ED and his lots interference,how is that going to affect our interest in this failed bank which we ended up bailing out.
    IMHO red ed and his bunch should piss off and go and play their games elsewere.

    Border Terrier says:

    We are in Europe, we belong in Europe and, save for some silliness such as CAP and fisheries, we benefit from Europe.

    Leigh and the other Tombstoners such as Jenkin have no alternative.

    We have to make what we have work.

    Guide you are a complete tit for siding with these numskulls. So there.

    Another Chimay for me please.

      “We” attempts to strengthen the lone voice….

      The peoples of the UK are not “WE” “they” are “them” not “US”

      WE think otherwise you are not “US”

    Pentangelis says:

    I’m afraid the growing perception of Cameron is that either he spouts off with promises he cannot keep, or when faced with opposition becomes gutless!

    Firstly, he would do far better if he researched the facts, as well as what he can and cannot do before spouting off, giving us all a false impression.

    Secondly, is as result of that research he does make us a promise, he should stick to it.

    Any other course of action will simply increase the public perception that he is indeed gutless!

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”

Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
