Even Adam Afriyie Cannot Watch


In his slow-motion train-wreck leadership interview on Sunday, the over-coached yet under-prepared charisma by-pass known as Adam Afriyie boasted of the “efforts of my team around me.” This team presumably includes the media advisor he was putting feelers out for recently. Well he might want to sack whoever advised him that it would be fine to shut his eyes during a photoshoot for an interview. The front cover of this week’s Total Politics looks ridiculous.

    Guido, may I suggest a volunteer army to make vexatious, nitpicking complaints to the new Press Gauleiter, against publications that have supported state control of the press?

    Chucky seems to be the “chosen one”, he seems to be on every tv channel, rather reminds me the original chosen one, St Tony the Bliar before the other fella popped his clogs, he was the same every tv channel, ready with comments on everything.

    A lot of people don’t know him from Adam, if you will.

    At the rate he’s going, they’ll know him all right, but probably not as he would have hoped. But when you start doing a lot of media to “up” your recognition numbers, just remember this fable, Adam: “One day, a scorpion wanted to cross a stream, and met a frog…” You probably think you’re going to be the scorpion– but you’re really the frog– get used to it.

    Rather interesting that Lilith left Adam because he was too bossy… liked his own way, perhaps his eyes were shut to what was going on around him.

    A ‘charisma by-pass’, come on Guido, Adam is charming and is one of the very few MP’s not implicated in the expenses scandal. Save your vitriol for those deserving of it ,eg career politicians wet behind the ears who don’t know what it’s like to work in the real world. Is this an attempt at character assassination? and by whom?

    The msm will not be reporting a huge rally / protest in Trafalgar Square this Sunday 24th March 2:00 to 5:00 pm because it is a rally for marriage between one man and one woman. The msm won’t mention it just as they didn’t the one million people rallying in Paris on the same subject a few weeks back.

    Just as a suggestion, what about an entire new building with new PFI contract charged to the party over the future. Why would we want to put poor prisoners and unemployed to work, much better to bring in a friendly construction firm isn’t it? Perhaps the party could then simply take a 1% cut on dead members funerals. That is the way these things always worked under Brown.

    WCA owns the ground floor office only, hardly a constituency building!

    Dear old Adam is behaving just like Michael Portillo did when he was planning a leadership challenge. Afriye is showing the same lack of backbone. He hasn’t got what it takes to be a party leader – at least, not one that would connect with the hard pressed public.

    And what happened to Portillo? Reduced to taking the BBC’s shilling.

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.”
