Afriyie’s £10,000 Sweetener For Dave

If you were an ambitious multi-millionaire Tory backbencher secretly plotting against the Prime Minister, what better way throw your leader off the scent than bunging him £10,000 as a sign of your undying support? In January this year Adam Afriyie generously donated ten grand of his own cash to the Conservative Party. Just days later, Afriyie’s plan to steal Dave’s job was revealed in the Sunday papers. The rest, as they say, is history…

      We know that there many more starting to plot against the beloved leader, Foxy has started to raise his head above the parapet (he thinks everyone has forgotten), Chinny Gove starting to raise his voice, Davis David itching to knock David of his high chair, more will be starting if they see Dave Boy wobbling, Dave has to get his act together and lead from the front which (I know there are some Liebore bods reading this blog) like her or loath her Maggie did until the worms turned.

      Ach, who cares what the hell goes on in the Tory Party. This bloke is bonkers if he thinks the Torys are the party for him.

        I don’t think anyone in their right mind would give you a tenner

      One-term Dave, dragging the Tories to their grave, says:

      Well, ten grand’s a good start, what what, but I don’t listen to anyone until they’ve given me peachy quarter of a mil. Cash. For that, you get supper and 30 minutes of my time.

      Then I release the hounds.

      Tally ho.

    The trouble with Afriyie is that he’s full of more crap than Dave.

    Terrible employer too – his IT support company regularly has annual staff turnover rates in excess of 70%

      IT; it's life, but not as we know it says:

      That’s par for the course for an IT company, isn’t it? I worked for an IT company in the West Mids that had an annual staff turnover of 120%, which held the record until I worked for one in Sussex with a turnover of more than 200% (it was slightly skewed because a lot of new recruits walked out within a week of starting; I walked out after 6 weeks).

      Wacist! You mean he is a Bounty, a choc-ice, a Malteaser, a coconut, a curly wurly, a finger of dirty cheese smelling fudge, a well rimmed Ripple, etc etc….

      What can we say here? I know we can do the Muslims right over, but what about our rubber lipped friends? Would C00n be too far? I guess w0g is out too then? And p@k! is a no no right Guido?

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
