14 Tory MPs Want Dave’s Head

The Speccie reports that 14 Tory MPs have written to Graham Brady wanting to sack Dave.

46 are needed to trigger a leadership contest.

Guido knows at least one MP teetering on becoming lucky number 15…

        Camoron is the best PM Labour ever had. Now stop complaining and get back to work.

        Ever notice how each successive PM makes the last incumbent look fantastic. It’ takes some skill to make ‘mad Jock Mc Sporran the Haggis botherer’ look half way good but cod bless ‘im Camoron has managed it.

        I just wish one day we’d get a real Tory in number ten…someone like that nice Mr Farage you know a proper Tory. Not the ‘wetback lite’ crooked bastard version that the tory party currently is infested with.

      This reshuffle us utter rubbish, the Tories have blown any chance of getting re-elected after the blatant lie of the CAST IRON GAURENTEE for a referendum. As someone in my sixties I do not expect to see another Tory government in my lifetime. They will be in opposition for decades The UKIP vote will torpedo every Tory seat with a majority of 5000 or less and any Tory MP who holds such a seat should start to plan a new career outside of politics.
      Only a fantasist could believe in a Tory recovery outside of an immediate legally binding in/out referendum on EU membership. All this waffle about reclaiming powers after the next election is exactly that WAFFLE.
      Any changes would require the other 26 members to agree to them so forget it
      Plus we all know that the Tory party are 100% Europhiles. Conservatism is now totally finished and has lost both the trust and support of its core vote. Us real Conservatives have had enough of being ignored UKIP for me and as many as I can persuade likewise

        Of course voting UKIP simply helps Labour and entrenches socialist government in this country. Given that Labour is about as Eurosceptic as your average EU Commissioner, I’m assuming that would not be to your liking?

        For anyone who’s not a Leftie, voting UKIP is like holding a gun to your own head and blowing off your nose, just because you’re annoyed with Cameron. In other words, bloody idiotic.

      2015 THE TORY LAMENT

      Now look at me, an ex MP who once had a majority
      I thought we were the ruling classes choosing to ignore the masses
      Disregard their point of view, no in/out vote on the EU
      Promising the unwashed shower, when were back in we’ll claw back power

      Alack alas that didn’t wash, they thought our promises were tosh
      Our vote took an enormous dip. It seems they all went for UKIP
      UKIP simply had us beat and I have lost my Commons seat
      At Cameron I am much annoyed, for now I’ve joined the unemployed

      We should perhaps at least reflected why it was we were elected
      Listened and took careful note of those who gave their trust and vote
      We were there at their behest, not to serve our own interest
      We’re there to serve, not dictate rules. THE VOTING BRITISH ARE NOT FOOLS

        That is indeed the risk. Which is why it won’t happen. We have to hope that, somehow, the economy starts to improve (although if it looks like doing so I expect the unions to step in with a few strikes to keep GDP under control).

        There’s still three years of ‘natural wastage’ from the public sector which should see another 600,000 (at least) of ‘em off the tax-payer’s teat so the deficit should be improving all the time.

        That and the true horror of Nasal Ned on TV for four weeks whining his way through his speeches and trying to look statesmanlike might yet do the job. It had better. I’m counting on the two Neds being Cameron’s greatest asset.

      I couldn’t agree more. Linking Mrs T to Hiilsborough is grotesque, yet the BBC has run with it. This is not surprising as the BBC is Labour’s media arm, and with the license coming up for review one year after the next election, the BBC know that if the Tories win then they will be butchered, and quite rightly. The BBC has become the enemy of democracy in the UK, a twisted and biased organisation that simply cannot see how dishonest it has become. I’ve no doubt Harold Shipman was also the responsibility of Mrs T, as is obesity, and no doubt the Ripper, and that bloke killed in France.

      Jack Straw was always a totally dissembling windbag, very quick to cast blame around for his own failings, and I remember the fragrant BNP chap on Question time putting Straw in to his place over the jibe about his father being imprisoned for being a coward. A truly horrible little berk.

      He was weasel wording why his ‘enquiry’ failed to uncover any … errr… cover-up.

      It’s very simple. Because whoever they got to do the ‘enquiry’ was constrained by the amount of information the Labour government chose to make available to him. They (Labour) learned well the lesson of B*il*l Cli*nt*on. When an enquiry nominally about dodgy real estate deals found itself examining dresses that the women of Washington seem to keep in their freezer.

      Labour wasn’t having any enquiry rampaging all over the place uncovering Lord knows what. They wanted to limit the scope of what was examined and found.

      They pulled the same stunt with Hutton. And Butler. And every other ‘enquiry’ the instigated. And much as I might despise the judges and stool-pigeons they got to carry out the ‘enquiries’ everybody knew what was going on and everybody (media and opposition included) went along with it. Because (for the opposition) their day will come and they’re going to want to whitewash their own enquiries.

      As others have said – what is weird is that this has come out now – under a T*ry leader.

      While we’re opening the files – what’s with that Du*nb*l*ane enquiry. Why is that so fucking secret that we have to wait till everybody is dead and beyond prosecution?
