Good Return for His Dolar
Tories Bring £276,400 Donor into Government

Following on from Lord Marland’s resignation, the Tories have been re-jigging their team in the Lords. With Viscount Leckie stepping up to the BIS role, Lord Popat of Harrow has been made a government whip. Dolar Popat, the multi-millionaire founder of the TLC hospitality group, has come a long way from his days waiting in Wimpy. Especially in the last couple of years. He entered the Lords two years ago and has now made it into government. Nothing to do with the £287,459.91 the Electoral Commission shows him donating to the Tories since Cameron took over.

    I think this is what makes GB great…

    What’s wrong with buying a Peerage, if you have got it spend it on buying a title. I am hoping to win the lottery and then I’m going to buy the Labour Party and become a Sir or a Lord. Better still, after I have bought my Peerage I will then be free to lie and cheat, go to jail and still keep my title like Lord’s Archer and Black.

    It’s a great country…

    And then what? Just exactly what problems will it solve if we leave the EU.

    Benefit culture?
    The demographics of Londistan and other cities.
    Troughing MP’s?
    Fat Cats?
    The deficit?

    I could go on and on.

    Get real – it ain’t going to turn us into a land flowing with milk and honey. In the end it will probably be the Little Englanders who will finally be the ruination of this country.

    Vote UKIP – B*ollocks!

    How much longer is the Conservative Party going to keep this person as leader, he is out to destroy the Conservative Party and is the only successful thing that he may achieve. Wake up Conservative MP’s get rid of your baggage whilst you still have a job.

    The new communications equipment for our troops in Afghanistan , wont be delivered untill after All our troops have returned home

    These things always happen in one way or another in almost all countries, everyone has to accept it. It cannot be stopped. At least money is given to the party and not into the pockets of politicians.

    Abolishing House of Lords and replacing it with elected second chamber will help but will never eliminate influence money will buys.

    Another ways to reducing influenced of money is to block appoints to Lords if he / she has given over £10,000 to any party. But it will not stop other forms of influence.

    Steady on, mate– especially in the post-Leveson era, you don’t just want to throw charges around that you have no way of proving. You don’t KNOW if there was a quid-pro-quo. Although, to be fair, 276K DOES seem like too much of a shitload of quid for there not to be a quo. And the figure, however, DOES curiously bear a striking resemblance to that quarter-mill-to-meet-Cameron figure of days of yore. Circumstantial evidence can sometimes be very strong, such as when one finds a trout in the milk, as Thoreau said.

Sir Smug didn’t try very hard at all to get Scottish mouthpiece to answer the few ‘balancing’ questions put to him. So nothing changes……

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
