Return of the Tory Chihuahuas

Back during Nigel Farage’s 2010 election battle against Bercow, Guido discussed the significance of chihuahuas in British politics. ChIHUAHuas are Conservatives In their Heads, Ukip AHeart. Three years later and they are back: Sir John Major has taken to quoting Guido word for word:

“Members with Conservative heads and UKIP hearts cannot be placated. Whatever is offered to them will be insufficient. They will demand more. They will only be satisfied by withdrawal. 

Down in Eastleigh the Tory’s eurosceptic candidate Maria Hutchings is doing her utmost to weaken the UKIP support; with love rather than the foolish dismissal favoured by Warsi, Dave, et al:

“Many of those people have views that are patriotic, which are [not dissimilar from her own]. And not that dissimilar from many people in our party, either! But no, I’ve never been tempted to move because the over-riding factor at the moment is to get this country back on its feet”.

That core Conservative vote who are UKIP in their hearts could be the difference in Eastleigh, and at the next election. When it comes to Tory chihuahuas, their bark is nothing compared to their bite. Guido will be keeping a close eye on the effect of Hutchings’ tone.

    Now THIS is the kind of news I like to read.

    A man who was jailed for torturing and murdering his partner’s two-year-old daughter has been killed in prison. Subhan Anwar was convicted in February 2009 of the murder of Sanam Navsarka, of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and given a minimum 23-year sentence. He died on Thursday night at Long Lartin Prison in Worcestershire, the Ministry of Justice said. Two inmates were arrested on suspicion of murder. Anwar is understood to have been held hostage in a cell before he was killed.

    Anwar’s partner Zahbeena Navsarka was cleared of her daughter’s murder but found guilty of manslaughter and jailed for nine years. Bradford Crown Court heard a metal pole was used to shatter the child’s leg. The youngster died with fractures to all her limbs. Sentencing the couple in 2009, Judge Peter Thornton QC said: “Your deliberate cruelty is beyond belief. Humanity has let her down.” Her hand prints and bloodstains were found inside cupboards at the home in Huddersfield and also at a property in Batley, West Yorkshire.

        I don’t know what those two were in prison for, but as long as it wasn’t a serious offence, I’d let them walk free. They’ve done society a favour. I just hope his death was long, slow and agonising.

          Hitler was of course pandering to a broad and catholic spectrum of supporters, rather like the Lib-Dems, to capture as much support as possible.

          The “Socialist” along with “Workers Party” tags did provide some initial problems in getting support from big business to bankroll the anti-Communist policy adopted.

          As for the Socialists, “Sozi’s”, Hitler and his party dismembered them before setting out to destroy the Communists. A scheme that didn’t really succeed in Berlin.

          The EU lie…

          …the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

          Wikipedia also makes clear:

          “The party was created as a means to draw workers away from communism and into völkisch nationalism. Initially, Nazi political strategy focused on anti-big business, anti-bourgeois, and anti-capitalist rhetoric, although such aspects were later downplayed in order to gain the support of industrial entities, and in 1930s the party’s focus shifted to anti-Semitic and anti-Marxist themes.”

          Sounds more hard-right Tory, or UKIP, than SOCIALIST.

    Look at Greece and Spain. They would be on their feet were it not for being trapped in the EU system. And let’s not forget that it was that system which forced them to their knees in the first place.

      Two local election results from yesterday at which UKIP ha never before contested

      Dawley Magna Ward, Telford & Wrekin UA.

      Lab 957 (53.9%, +11.4), Con 379 (21.4%, -8.1), UKIP 312 (17.6%, +17.6), Ind 126 (7.1%, +7.1).
      UKIP just 3.8% behind the Tories from a standing start

      Lab hold. Swing of 9.8% from Con to Lab.

      Gainsborough East Ward, West Lindsey DC.

      LD 169 (28.6%, -15.7), Lab 149 (25.3%, -6.3), UKIP 143 (24.2%, +24.2), Con 129 (21.9%, -2.2).
      UKIP only 4.4% behind LD and 1.1% behind Lab but 2.3% ahead of the Tories. Again this is from a standing start as UKIP had never contested these seats before.

    The sheep in Eastleigh will of course vote for the liblabcon parties, who advocate a United States of Europe, but spend their time of course telling you and persuading you that they don’t, and that at some time far into the future, you will of course get a referendum!

    When you put your cross against their names very soon, you will have absolutely no right to moan when they sign you up to the next all embracing union treaty,taking away even more of each own countries sovereign powers.

    You have been warned many times now, so I guess you do really want a United States of Europe yourselves then?
