Tory/UKIP Defection Runners and Riders

Tim Montgomerie’s warning today that two Tory MPs are seriously considering defecting to UKIP has got the rumour mill spinning. As ever Guido gives you his tongue in cheek take on the runners and riders.

Mark Pritchard
Eurosceptic rating: 10/10

Pritchard is a serious contender. The secretary of the 1922 Committee resigned from his position as the Conservative Party’s International Office deputy chairman last month, telling the papers that his decision was a protest against Cameron’s weakness on Europe. Could he be about to jump ship?

Bill Cash
Eurosceptic rating: 10/10

Cash has a history of causing trouble over Europe, and was famously part of the Maastricht Rebellion that did for John Major. He has a fractious relationship with Dave and led a rebellion against the Coalition last year. Said to be reaching the end of his tether, though has stated on the record he does not want to quit the EU.

George Eustice
Eurosceptic rating: 9/10

An outside punt but it would be the completion of a journey for Dave’s one time Press Secretary who now leads a new group of moderately disgruntled eurosceptic Tory MPs. Guido can’t really see it happening due to the bright party career ahead but…

He’s ex-UKIP…

Douglas Carswell
Eurosceptic rating: 9/10

Carswell has long been an outspoken critic of the government, and ramped up the pressure on Cameron last year by suggesting that ministers could not be trusted to defend British interests on the continent. Extremely closed to fellow rabblerouser Dan Hannan. His name on a UKIP ticket would be a huge coup…

Jacob Rees-Mogg
Eurosceptic rating: 8/10

Everyone’s favourite eccentric backbencher lambasted the Tory leadership last year for allowing the Lib Dems to dictate Coalition policy on Europe, and has suggested that the EU could be the issue that brings down the government. He is even an expert on ‘flexicurity’…

Nadine Dorries
Eurosceptic rating: 8/10

To say there is no love lost between Nadine and Dave would be an understatement. Dorries has been strongly critical of Cameron’s stance on abortion, child benefit and his closeness to Nick Clegg, and was furious after her boss’ quip at PMQs that she was ‘frustrated’. Revenge is a dish best served cold and the party machine are not helping her with a little local difficulty in the Boundary Review.

While Guido understands that a defection isn’t imminent and Tim was obviously trying to put pressure on them not jump, there is clearly serious and growing discontent among Tory backbenchers. It can only be a matter of time…

      Forgot all about him! Definitely on the cards, as is Nadine Dorries.

      This is all happening just at the right time – too many politicians never put the boot in when it hurts, they’re a spineless bunch really, and just pretend to be oh, so jolly angry… These two can, and will.

      Nice one to think of over the coming weeks.

      My pension prospects have tipped the balance well away from the Tories. They were utterly ruined by Nulabour though.

Joining another Party won’t be a problem for me as I have already been a member of the Labour Party, SDP and LibDems and I am also an honorary member of the Russian Communist Party and have been awarded the Order of Lenin, although I can’t talk too much about that.

He isn’t, otherwise he would have left when Cameron reneged on the referendum, and the Tory party isn’t either.

          Cromwell, the S&P and even the history of the Labour party shows what can be achieved if, instead of accepting the world as it is, you actually get off your arse and try and change it.

          Otherwise we’d all still be living in an absolute monarchy. Or be flip-flopping between the Whigs and the Tories. I reckon a few UKIP defections could (possibly) be the start of a genuine change in UK politics. Particularly if a Labour MP jumped ship too.

          Dan, All in all, there is no significant difference between any of the main three parliamentary parties on a whole raft of policies:

          pro-surveillance state,
          pro-EU subservience,
          Pro immigration,
          pro high taxes,
          pro climate change taxation and control,
          pro big government,
          pro ECHR,
          pro terrorists and criminals rights,
          pro corrupt corporate lobbying,
          Pro-big banker,
          pro high debt,
          pro-politically correct divisiveness,
          pro-merging our defence with that of France,
          soft on crime and law and order,
          soft on welfare…

          And even on deficit reduction there is now less than 1% difference between George Osborne’s current situation and Alistair Darling’s 2010 plan.

          There is no significant difference between all three main parliamentary parties. And what is worse is that all three parties are totally and utterly wrong on all the above policies.

          It is impossible to vote for any of them as a vote for change, because they are all the same.

          Only UKIP offers real and the right kind of change on each and every one of the above policy areas.

          I will vote UKIP.

The Judas goat Cameron has done his job well, his masters in Brussels will reward him well and the gullible party who fell for his lies for so long can no longer fool even themselves let alone us as to his real intentions and so its make your mind up time for them, do they stay and forever dirty their names and legacy with the label of Quisling traitor or do they take the hard but honourable course of jumping ship?

    The shameful truth is that the vast majority of so called ‘Tory’ MPs will follow the traitors of the Quisling regime knowing what they are and knowing what the end game is. The vast majority will enable and assist the Quisling regime in betraying their own people and nation, they are the degenerate ruling class elite who really couldnt give a flying f*ck who is ruling the UK just as long as they are on the gravy train.

          Not for some time…

          Mugabe has previously survived being a victim of Air Zimbabwe’s woes as the national airline’s pilots suspends any of their work boycott to ferry the ageing leader each time he intends to travel.

          However, several passengers have had their travel plans disrupted when the airline grounds its planes or suspends flights mainly due to industrial action, fuel shortages and the seizure of the airline’s aircraft.

          And this is the guy the ANC wants to emulate. I’m amazed there’s any white folk left in SA.

        But with Dave..who would be better? being realistic?
        Osborne? – The taxman?
        Hague – Had his chance. Blew it.
        May – do be serious.
        Varsi – ?? Only if there’s a quota appointment.
        Davis ? – resigned to stand against himself? Worthy of Gordon that farce.
        Maude? Jerrycan Maude ?
        Lansley – The hospital privatiser?
        Letwin? – All those government snooping emails would turn up in the in outside his house.
        Pickles? – is the country ready for a heavyweight PM?

    All three major parties are just waiting for even more of the world war two generation to die before taking us further into a united Europe and most definitely, without a referendum. Heseltine, Howe and Mandelson will see to that! as well as the rest of the rich,powerful EU elite.

Either way we’re fucked until some grown-ups take control.

        UKIP is a Tory pressure group, it will never accumulate seats in parliament.
        But it is influential and popular enough to lose/deny the tories 21 seats at the last GE in the marginals.
        If it manage to lose the tories 21 seats at the last election how many do you think it will lose the tories at the next GE ? 100 ? The way Dave is going, that looks achieveable.
        Camoron could wipe out the threat at a stroke by promising a referendum on Europe. All UKIP would rejoice…..and withdraw their aspirant MPs, huge tory majority, trebles all round.
        Except it won’t happen under Camoron. More likely Davis or Boris after an EU issue causes the trigger point, Duncan-Smith resigning, and the ousting of the fake tory.

      We have friends who are so skint they can’t afford the fuel to dr*i*ve from Somerset to see their parents in Sussex. Now, if they could afford the fuel then they’d visit, maybe go for a pub lunch, buy some flowers for mum on the way and a bot*t*le of b*oo*ze for dad. Stimulate the fucking economy in other words.

      But they don’t. And the same effect is replicated several million-fold around the UK. The high cost of fuel is bringing the whole fucking operation to a grinding halt. And if the cost of fuel doesn’t do it then Len Mc-Fucking-Cluskey will.

    The BBC are supposed to be the best news outlet on the planet but they can’t let their hatred of the Tories go can they?

    There are a 1000 questions he could have asked, in stead it was 5 minutes just full of cheap sound bites.

    FACT!

    A vote for any of the 3 major parties,Labour, Liberal, Conservative is an endorsement of their EU federalist policies and with no referendum. They will never give you a referendum, never, you can be sure of that!

    Each new treaty binds the EU states further and further into political union,and as with the Euro, one you can not get out of it.

    Remember that when you put your cross against those parties to represent you.

    You will have endorsed their EU policies of further and further EU political union towards the United States of Europe. So no moaning now when they sign up to the next treaty(that Dave will of course veto, but the rest will go ahead with any way).

    All those treaties will be there for us to sign up to, once enough of the second world war generation have died!
    Think about it?

    But unfortunately there are still enough ‘readers’ on here who believe that this is all about UKIP. Use your brain for once and vote for who you want to, but I’m just telling you why I won’t ever be voting for the 3 main parties ever again!

Getting rid of those and getting rid of 50 of the seats in the north would make it almost impossible for Liebore to ever get a majority in England again.
