Fox’s Penance

One of the more curious reshuffle rumours that Guido has heard is the idea that Liam Fox coud be brought back as Tory party chairman. As luck would have it he bumped into the good Doctor last night in one of Westminster’s quieter watering holes. Mr Werritty was charming too.

Sporting a pocket sized Union flag, Fox was clearly enjoying the Games and was very on message about their organisation, but he declared that he would not be coming back to frontline politics for “at least 18 months”. He’s apparently recharging his batteries and would turn down any job offered. That’s that then Dave. It’s fair to say he’s up to something though…

    If Fox and Laws and brought back into government then coalition just as bad as Labour for rewarding dodgy people.

      Indeed. It’s not as if the Tories and Lib Dems have no principles like Labour, is it? We shall see. But then what harm has Labour having no principles done them? Labour voters don’t expect their MPs to have any principles. But they do expect businesses to have them. Odd that.

      WTF is he still socialising in public with Werritty for? Unless it’s official and he’s come out.

      There must be an abnormally large % of ass bandits in Westminster. I blame public school.

        I don’t have any daft notions against killing vermin but to expand your point, Labour gave an equal priority to repealing the death penalty for treason and prohibiting the ownership of target pistols in the UK. Pistol shooting is an olympic sport, as I recall.
