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…

    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.

    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 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.

    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).

    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!

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
